Spice Up Your Room - Screen Dividers

Using a room divider or folding screen can be a perfect way to create interest in an otherwise dull area. Contrary to what many believe, a screen divider need not actually be used to divide a space. You can use an ornamental divider flat against a wall or in a junction to add some punch to your décor. Of course, if you have a big space and want to give the illusion of two cozier areas, a room divider is just perfect for that!

These days, there are several styles to choose from. Virtually any décor can be enriched with either a folding screen type room divider using decorative panels or a divider that stands by itself.

For a contemporary or retro style, you might opt for a one panel standalone divider with acrylic panels. They come in bright contemporary colours with geometric designs and are just impeccable for a divider between living room and dining room in your modern home.

For Asian style décor, folding screens are a perfect complement! If you want one with visual charm, you can buy screens with Japanese style acts painted on them or go with the typical black lacquer with mother of pearl Asian ladies, trees and birds. If you prefer something more simple but with a bit of punch, you can go for a bright red lacquer room divider. Not delicate enough for your style? Then make use of one of the numerous bamboo or rattan style dividers.

Even the feminine ragged chic styles can benefit from a room divider. You can buy dividers with floral designs or attractive scenes or even buy a fabric covered divider to improve the softness of the style. If you prefer more of a French style, then there are a lot of folding panel screens that have an openwork metal design suitable for the French look.

When you choose your room divider be sure to get one that complements your overall decorating theme in style and colour. The right room divider should blend into the décor, but an incompatible divider will stick out like a sore thumb. Before going out to buy your divider, measure the area and make sure you get one that will properly fit.

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.
