Not Just Dividers - Using Outdoor Screens To Enhance Beauty

Indoor screens can provide a beautiful and elegant way to divide up areas of your living space. They are also a favorite of restaurant owners and designers, because of the way they divide up a space while allowing light and air to move through freely. Not only do screens perform all those functions, but at the same time they add elegance and beauty to the room.

Outdoor or garden screens perform the same functions. Again, in restaurants, as well as in personal homes, screens can be excellent for adding a delicate touch of classy elegance to the place. They provide privacy as well as beauty.

Outdoor screens, however, perform other functions as well. Depending on the material used, outdoor screen can be used to provide shade, for instance in a restaurant that provides lunch or afternoon meals. The right kind of screen can not only add a barrier between tables but also keep the sun off patrons and their food. The shade can add coolness, but the right kind of screen will also be permeable to the breeze, allowing shade in addition to air circulation. This sort of thing is ideal for keeping customers cool and at ease.

Of course, the main purpose of adding screens is to increase privacy, and for this they are very effective. Whether your intention is to shield the house from outsider eyes, to create a secluded area in your garden, or the more commercial purpose of shielding outdoor restaurant tables from each other – all these purposes are suited fine with the use of designer screens.

The material used for outdoor screens, of course, differs compared to indoor screens. Outdoor screens need to be resistant to the elements, therefore they need to use materials that will not be affected by rain or wind or dust. Whereas indoor screens can use a variety of elements without worrying about decay, with outer screens the weather and the type of atmosphere (humid, salty) can make a huge difference in materials required. That’s why high quality aluminium screens, or screens made of laminated vinyl, are usually a better option.

At the end of the day, even the materials used do not matter as much as the quality and the design. With HCDS, you can be sure that the materials, design and quality of the installed screens are absolutely perfect, adding to the beauty of your garden and yet providing function and privacy.

Selecting a Product

So what type of privacy screen is right for your space? Below is a simple guide in choosing the right privacy screen.
Think about your space

Be clear about what you want to screen – is it just photographic or is it acoustic as well? Create a list of necessities your privacy screen must meet.

Entry spaces can truly benefit from the use of privacy screens. This is one area where they are becoming increasingly popular.

Decorative privacy screens can be utilized to divide large open plan spaces to generate ‘visual’ rooms. They can also be used to create an acoustic ceiling or wall lining in high noise areas.

Develop a design idea and think about it again!

There are numerous graphic styles and concepts you may choose from, so think about which style would optimally suit the interior look and feel of your own home. A screen is a sculptural bit which you can style in a really personal way; you may even desire to have a family picture laser-cut into the design.

Choose your design materials

Today’s material options and styles are numerous, and seeing contemporary architectural materials meeting with customary concepts is nothing short of remarkable.

Consider the maintenance, cost and quality of your screen

There are some privacy screen materials that require some amount of care. In choosing the material of your privacy screens, make sure you think about how it is maintained to ensure that you will be able to properly maintain it in the future.

Compare the costs and quality of all these materials. Choose a privacy screen that is within your budget without compromising the quality.
