Decorative screens as room dividers: their historical use, modern materials, advantages, and applications
Decorative screens have a fascinating history as room dividers, dating back to ancient times. Today, they remain a popular choice for creating space divisions in various settings, including restaurants, hotels, offices, and homes. The present paper explores the advantages of using decorative screens as room dividers and highlights the functional benefits of the screens, such as their ability to create privacy without completely blocking off the entire space, and their ability to be moved and rearranged as needed. Additionally, decorative screens offer aesthetic benefits, such as adding a decorative element to a space and creating visual effects and texture.
