Room dividers provide a practical and easy way to divide spaces in any room. They can create a little reading nook in a den or family room. Room dividers can hide or conceal work stations and keep the clutter out of view. Room dividers also add to the decor of a room.
One of the easiest ways to change the look of a room is to create an optical illusion and change the shape of the room. By placing a screen, angled just right, a corner becomes a curved wall. Set a comfortable and attractive chair and ottoman in front of the divider; add a lamp and a plant and suddenly the sharp angles of the room are gone and an attractive focal point is created.
Interior room dividers can also be used to create a wall of art. Whether it be your child's drawings, post cards from a favorite vacation, photographs of family members, or prints by you favorite artist, an art wall is the perfect answer to ho-hum decorating. It also allows you to display favorite art pieces in a simple manner. You can frame the work and hang them directly on the room dividers or decoupage them directly to the divider itself. Your creativity will shine through the art wall.
Who says that window coverings have to be in the form of traditional blinds or drapes? A room divider positioned in front of a window will allow light to shine through above while allowing privacy. The best part about using room dividers as window covering is that you can always reposition the partition and allow more light into the room.
Many homes have doors leading from the dining room into the kitchen or living room. There are times when it's not always good to be able to see directly into those areas. Room dividers can easily cover door openings. They are less obtrusive than hanging doors and can be moved whenever needed.
For those with a green thumb, room dividers can create a wonderful indoor trellis for climbing plants. A flowering climber can add a touch of color and country ambiance to a large kitchen area, sun room, family room or bedroom. By using room dividers as a simple trellis, the plant and its trellis can be moved from spot to spot.
Room dividers are affordable and functional. They add to the ambiance and decor of any room while serving in many capacities.
