They can be used to demarcate a space or simply to enhance the decor. A word of caution though, if the room is small, avoid using a room divider as it will make your space appear even smaller or choky.
There's a variety of styles to choose from, and you can always feel free to deviate from the theme of your living space. For instance, the fact that your living room has a shabby chich theme does not prevent you from using an African themed room divider.
Dividers cann also be used for providing privacy, for instance if you live in a studio apartment, you would need to cordone off your bedroom area from the rest of the apartment.
Use screens and shields to divide two areas in the room. Choose the color that will fit the room‘s color scheme. If you want to fit it into the room’s architecture go with the main color in the color scheme. If you want to add a bright accent to the room choose a screen in a bright color that will fit with the room’s color scheme.
Curtains suit bedrooms but they can also be used in a one-room apartment to hide the bed and create canopy bed effect. Beaded and fringed curtains can be used instead of fabric ones.
Some room dividers come in patterns while others feature interesting texture. Some come in painted canvas providing amazing works of art, while some others come in intricately carved wood.
