The screen finds its place as well in an urban apartment where one would need additional partitions, as in large loft-style spaces.

Different usages of room dividers :

The screen as a headboard in the bedroom

Leaning on the wall at the head of the bed, the screen dresses up the bedroom in no time at all. You can opt for a printed canvas model, such as a wall hanging. A louvered model can also be very pretty at the head of the bed. You can install a light garland there to have a soft light in the room. Or hang a few drooping plants on it, to create a vegetated headboard.
 

The screen as a decorative object in the living room

Simply to break one of the angles of a large room, place a screen in a corner and slide behind spotlights to create a very decorative light show. The screen makes it possible to create a subdued light and thus make a large living room much more cocooning.

A canvas screen in a bedroom

The screen was once used to preserve privacy. We can keep its original function and place it in the bedroom of a family house to hide a water point for example. It then gives the room a very cozy charm of yesteryear.
