Practical Uses Of Room Dividers

Room dividers have long been considered as things of the past. They are most commonly seen on classic Asian movies and even in movies time-casted during the medieval times. From literally being dividers of a room to becoming express dressing stations, this type of screen has definitely made a comeback in interior design!

Gone are the days when room dividers are only used as room dividers. Nowadays, people have come up with various uses for room dividers that were never before thought of. Here are a few practical uses of room dividers.

Room Dividers as Storage Space

If you have ample space in your room or living area and are in need of storage space, room dividers are the way to go! Many people have taken advantage of this ingenious idea of converting some free space into something more useful. Room dividers can be used as storage space by folding them against a wall or a corner. Home owners can then place whatever excess stuff they have into the newly converted storage space. Using room dividers as storage space does not only make use of the free space you have in your room or living area. It also allows you to de-clutter and become more organized.

Room Dividers as Decorative Elements

Room dividers can also be used to add decorative elements into an empty room or space. They can enhance a certain area of the house simply by their presence. Of course, the design and style of the room divider should be able to match the theme of the room or area where it is intended to be used. Otherwise, the room divider would look out of place. Room dividers can also become center pieces of a certain room or area of the house. Intricately done room dividers may serve as a focal point too.

Room Dividers as Dressing Stations

Spending the night with your friends? You might want to make use of the room divider and create a dressing station! Dressing stations come in handy when there are more than two people occupying the same bedroom. Using room dividers as dressing stations will create a sense of privacy which is highly needed when changing clothes. The great thing about them is they can be stored once they are no longer needed and put up once again once the need for a dressing station arises.

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.
