There are so many ways to use free-standing decorative screens in your decor. Every home should have at least one or two as they not only look good, they are versatile in almost every room of the house.
Folding screens can be used as a partition between one part of the room and another. For example, in an open plan space they can give a visual cue that you are moving from the living area to the dining area.
They can create almost architectural visual interest if you place them in a way that breaks up a large space or box-like room. Similarly, position them at an angle across the corner of a room that feels too square and you will soften the hard corners and create a more welcoming feel.
Traditionally they are used in a bedroom to get dressed or changed behind, and this is still a great way to pretty up a guest bedroom. In fact, you can use one anywhere that you want some privacy. Perhaps you often work from a small area in a corner of your living room and you want to have some separation from the rest of the space. This is not only good as a boundary to divide work life from home life, it also keeps any messy files or other paperwork hidden away from sight!
Finally, you might choose floor-standing or folding screens purely for their decorative effect. They have a slightly mysterious and theatrical air about them, so they can often create a dramatic statement in a room. Or perhaps you prefer to choose something pretty and romantic, to create intimacy in a boudoir and evoke a sense of nostalgia. For example, we have some beautiful hand-painted floral designs that are like artworks in themselves.
