Affordable Room Divider Ideas
A room divider serves many purposes beyond the one billed in its name. When you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a room divider, you have a few options, especially if you want a piece that is decorative as well as functional. Here are several ideas of inexpensive room divider. Folding screens are a terrific and decorative means of dividing a room. There are many more styles than the traditional Asian design. Some are comprised of individual photo frames so that each side of the frame can have different photos and a different look. Some folding screens are made of solid wood of many colours. Shop online for a neutral sort of folding screen that both people in the room can agree on. If the room is for one person with two purposes, the folding screen can be strategically placed to divide, for example, a workspace from a bedroom by placing the screen along one side of the bed for privacy.
Curtains are an inexpensive room divider. Measure the width and height of the space you plan to hang the curtain before you go shopping. You can buy some online or in a store as long and as wide as you need. Laundry line cord or bamboo is a unique way to hang them. Curtains are also easily made, simply pick some fabric from a fabric store, fold the top half of the curtain over about one inch, then sew, glue, or staple the fabric together. This makes a loop with which to string up the curtains. You can even take two different colours of curtains and sew them together entirely to give each side of a room a different colour.
