Decorating With Room Dividers
Room dividers can be both decorative and practical. They can serve to break one large room up into cozy sections, hide a cluttered area, or simply sit against the wall and add to the décor. Not only are they a great decoration, but you can use the empty space behind them as extra storage!
A room divider is an interesting way to create 2 semi private areas within 1 room. If you are using it in a bedroom, you can section off one corner for a private dressing room. Or use your room divider to add a separation to a large living room and dining room combo. You can section off the dining area to create an intimate ambiance One great thing about a room divider is if you don't want to have the small cozy rooms anymore - just fold it up and put it away!
Even in a smaller room, a room divider has many decorative uses. Placing the divider in the corner, softens the edge of the room and adds interest. If you have other themed accent pieces, try draping them over the divider. If you are tight on space, you can set the divider flush against the wall and even put some furniture like a chair or desk in front of it. But if you have plenty of room, you can set it out from the wall a bit and use the empty space behind it for extra storage.
There are different kinds of dividers too. The classical folding screen divider is nice because it is easily moved around and can be folded to fit in to most any area. The single screen panel, can be good in a contemporary setting. If you are into the 1960's you can even put up a beaded curtain panel. Room dividers come in practical form as well and you can buy ones with shelves or cubbies as well as ones that have places for photos.
When you pick out your room divider room divider, you need to make sure it matches your décor. Pick a divider that either goes with the room them (i.e beach theme, safari theme etc?) or matches the style of the room. You wouldn't want a modern divider in an antique style room so be aware of the style you already have and go with that.
