Curtain room dividers are curtains which serve the function of dividing the space inside a room. The curtain is usually used to divide the living room into two areas, or to provide extra division in an open-plan space. These curtains are popular in open-plan apartments, where people want the option of both privacy and openness, which a dividing curtain provides both of! Of course, there are practical points to take into consideration: How will you hang the curtain? What material should I use? What should the curtain look like? Hopefully this will answer some of your questions.
Curtain room dividers are inexpensive in comparison to many other ways in which you can divide a room, such as constructing a new wall. They are also lightweight, and will not be too heavy for your house, unlike the building of certain walls. You should use a durable material, and, if privacy is your main concern, a thicker opaque material. However, if the dividing curtain is simply being used for decoration, or if you want light and sound to pass through easily, then maybe consider a lighter material, such as net. This may be the ideal solution if you want a curtain to separate a living area from a kitchen – conversation can continue through a lightweight net curtain, and also lightweight curtains are easier to wash and dry than heavier, more durable options. Curtain room dividers should be both attractive and functional. Also consider the fact that when the curtain is opened, it may need to take up a reasonable amount of space at the side of the room, and should be held in place by a curtain tieback, which can either be made from the same material or from a material of a contrasting color, or even from metal or wood.
A curtain room divider is not only used within the living room, but also is often used for the bedroom. It can be used as an alternative to a door to segregate closet and dressing spaces from the bed itself, or to curtain off the bed for other uses of the room during the daytime, such as for use of the bedroom as a home office. Curtain dividers in the bedroom mainly use a soft color, to invoke a feeling of comfort and relaxation. Another benefit of curtain dividers is that they can be changed or removed at little cost.
