Jazz Up Your Room With Folding Screen Room Dividers


Using a room divider or folding screen can be a great way to create interest in an otherwise dull area. Contrary to what many believe, a room divider need not actually be used to divider a space. You can use a decorative divider flat against a wall or in a corner to add some punch to your dcor. Of course, if you have a large space and want to give the illusion of 2 cozier areas, a room divider is perfect for just that!

These days, there are plenty of styles to chose from. Virtually any dcor can be enhanced with either a folding screen type room divider with decorative panels or a divider that stands by itself.

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

For Asian style dcor, folding screens are a perfect compliment! If you want one with visual appeal, you can buy screens with Japanese style scenes painted on them or go with the standard black lacquer with mother of pearl Asian women, trees and birds. If you prefer something more plain but with a bit of punch, you can try a bright red lacquer room divider. Not subtle enough for your style? Then make use of one of the many bamboo or rattan style dividers.

Even the feminine shabby chic styles can benefit from a room divider. You can buy dividers with floral designs or beautiful scenes or even buy a fabric covered divider to enhance the softness of the style. If you prefer more of a french style, then there are many folding panel screens that have an openwork metal design perfect for the french look.

Here's some tips on how you can use a room divider to jazz up your dcor:

When you choose your room divider be sure to get one that matches your overall decorating theme in style and color. The right room divider should blend into the dcor, but a mismatched divider will stand out like a sore thumb. Before going out to purchase your divider, measure the area and make sure you get one that will fit properly.
