Room dividers are one way to “divide” up the space in a large room or to hide corners in an open floor plan. They are available in all sorts of styles and types. A formal, preinstalled divider, such as is often used in big hotels and resorts can transform a large hall into several small meeting rooms. Curtains can do the same thing in a home, as can free-standing decorative screens. These can be an attractive item even when not in use, since they often have lovely scrollwork or silkscreen paintings.
