How an indoor privacy screen can create separate spaces in your home

    The ultimate luxury when it comes to properties is space. The space to have separate areas within your home can include en suite bathrooms, dining rooms, TV lounges, vanity stations, walk-in closets and more. 

    How do you create separate spaces in a room? 

    Setting up an indoor privacy screen can be the simplest, most practical way to divide your rooms. Your home will feel cohesive while retaining all the space you are used to. The best way to create a divided space is to maintain a sense of style that feels natural with an interruption. That interruption is the privacy screen. However, it can hardly be noticed if you pick the right one.

    Fun partitions that partly conceal the other side of the room can imbue a sense of vintage appeal in their nostalgic heritage. Latticed wood, sheer patterns and curved designs can appear romantic and add warmth to a bedroom or dressing room. This creates separation in a room by implying the opposite sides of the privacy screen are for different things, yet still belong side by side. 

    How do you split a living room into two areas? 

    There are many ways to revive a tired living room by giving each side its own unique identity. Folding privacy screens are the quickest way to ensure a shared household achieves the desired aesthetic and feel for the side they want. What was once a common living area can be transformed into a home office space, children’s play area, mini library, gaming station, bar or a simple TV lounge. The options are endless.

    Since the living room sees a lot of hustle and bustle, the indoor privacy screen you choose for this section has to be versatile. Think out-of-the-box when it comes to designs and practicality. You can make some of the less challenging ones yourself. Some of the most inventive indoor privacy screens you can choose to use are: 

    • Mirrors as screens: this allows you to feel like the room is larger and reflects natural light.
      Install pocket doors: these interleading sliding doors are ideal for private gatherings or closing off rooms completely.

    • Folding screens: these work well in smaller rooms, as it can be manipulated to fit between your furniture and space.

    • Draped curtains: formed around a structure, curtains can look delicately divine as a Victorian-era-esque way of dividing your room.

    • Two-way fireplace: this idea blends the comforts of cosy homes with a modern twist

    • Shelving wall: use a floating wall to set the scene of an illuminated bookshelf, indoor plants or family photos.

    • Use art to your advantage: artwork on a large scale can be used to make your space appear cultured and eclectic.
