Folding room-divider screens are making a comeback. While they are indeed decorative, these screens can be used in a variety of practical ways:
-- As beautiful backdrops. Some dividers feature removable fabric or wood inserts that allow you to quickly and easily change the style of your room. -- To hide unsightly areas. Place a screen in front of an appliance or even a damaged wall section. -- To divide larger rooms into smaller, more intimate areas. -- To create an interesting, colorful focal point. -- For privacy, hiding from view an area that you do not want to be seen by someone standing outside the screen.
Room-divider screens are available in a variety of colors and styles, some of which are very affordable. Not only is the use of such screens much less expensive than building walls - it also gives you much greater flexibility.
