Using Privacy Screens to Create Beautiful and Functional Interior Home Decor

If you had an unlimited budget then of course you could create a beautiful indoor space in every room of your home. However, if you're like most people, you probably have limited funds to spend on creating a welcoming and cosy space, as well as one that is organized and functional. Note a few simple tips for how to create a beautiful and function interior space using a simple and affordable privacy screen, which is a good choice for when you're on a tight budget.

In the entryway

At the front door, add a screen in the corner to block the view of shoes and backpacks, if you have limited closet space and cannot store away all those things. You can even add hooks to the louvers of the screen and hang jackets, handbags, backpacks, and other times that don't fit in the closet.

In a shared child's room

When two children share a room, use a privacy screen to divide the space between their beds or desk. You can then use simple hooks to hang baskets and decorative boxes from each side, to hold school supplies, toys, books, craft supplies, and other items. This will get these things off the floor and out of a small closet, and also helps keep those items separated between the children.

Between the dining and living area

In a small home or apartment, the dining and living area may run together. You may not mind this, except when one person uses the dining area for work or study while another watches television in the living area. Add a privacy screen for separation; you can fold it up when you want light from one area to reach both spaces or are entertaining, but then open the screen for privacy when needed. You can also hang hooks from both sides to hold baskets for table linens, flatware, books, computer games or DVDs, remote controls, and everything else you want to get off the tables and yet keep within easy reach.

In the bedroom

If you have a desk in the bedroom, this can be very distracting if you're trying to get to sleep while staring at unpaid bills and other paperwork. A folding privacy screen can block out that mess when it's bedtime. You can also use this screen to hide laundry baskets, piles of sewing to be done, and anything else that is somewhat unsightly but which can't fit in a closet or under the bed. This can create a more restful atmosphere when it's time to sleep while still keeping those things close at hand.
