Room Divider Design

We have had enough of walls- walls which divide the space, walls that are symbol of separation. It high time we realised that there are plenty of options than those stubborn walls, if it is some privacy all we seek. Room dividers can be one of them.

Room dividers are of great help, not just with the obvious reason of dividing a room, but with hiding the mess, creating a hidden storage space, ensuring privacy to the space and above all adding some accent to the room.

As are the number of uses of a room divider, so are the types of room dividers screens, each serving a different purpose.

Shoji screens

Shoji screens are translucent paper over a frame of wood that can be used in making doors, windows and room dividers. These have been a part of traditional Japanese architecture which is now gaining popularity across the globe.

Drape screens

Drape screens are more or less sheer curtains which are used for windows. But very few of us see them as room dividers,which when used in appropriate shade and pattern can beautify the space.
Unlike shoji screens, these come in a number of beautiful colours giving you a wider option to choose from, although making it hard to settle on one.
