  1. Screen Another Room

In some cases, the entrance from one room to another one somewhat needs a false wall. If you have an open doorway that you are still using but wants it to get screened partially, you might want to consider using a folding screen. It is recommended that you position your folding home screens few feet away from the opening in order to obtain some privacy, while still being able to allow people to enter and exit the room.

  1. Room Division 

Folding screens are commonly used as room dividers. They can provide an illusion that there is a separate portion of the room which can be used if you need additional privacy. Folding screens are also perfect if you want to add a work area within a room.

  1. Add an Illusion of Height 

The vertical lines of a folding screen can create an illusion of height to any room. Adding a false sense of height may be necessary if you have a square room that is fairly small. On the other hand, if you have a room that is long, you can also use a folding screen because the vertical lines on it  can definitely add some depth.

  1. Make an Entrance 

For instance, if your front door opens directly to your living room, you can place a folding screen in order for you to create a separate entrance. If the entrance is large, you might also want to add a bench, a table, or a lamp. One good thing about folding screens is that they are movable and you can try different placements to achieve your desired look.

  1. Hide a Home Feature or a Fixture 

In some cases, there are fixtures and architectural features in your home that you want to hide. One example of this is the water heater. If you want to use the room where the water heater is located for other purposes, adding a folding screen to hide the water heater can be a good idea. Making use of folding screens is way cheaper than having some home features changed or eliminated.
