4Here are some of the best new picks for room dividers on the market. The focus on the new folding screens seems to be focused, appropriately, in all parts of Asia – Celebrate the traditional styles of the countries of East and South East Asia with a new folding screen for your home or office. One of the easiest ways to effortlessly achieve an Asian theme décor in any space is with a room divider. Specifically one that has an Asian flair to it. While not hard to find, the choices can sometimes be overwhelming. Here are some things to think about that should help you narrow down your choices when designing your own home décor.

Nature vs. Architecture: Folding screens come in many varieties, but one way to distinguish their styles is by looking at the shapes they present. For example, a traditional shoji screen has a grid on it, giving it a very structured look, almost like a skyskraper. If you like these but prefer a softened effect, choose a screen with a light color of wood (such as natural or birch) instead black or dark cherry. For a more natural look, steer clear of the grids and geometric shapes and look for something with more natural lines, like the Tropical Philippine Room Divider. It offers the same Asian flair, but all of the lines are soft and curved, giving it a more natural look that is enhanced by its simple brown textured color and open base. Another way to divide (pardon the pun):

Bold Statement vs. Discreet – A dark screen with a bright painting on it is going to look huge in a room. It will probably be the first thing that someone sees when he or she walks into the room. If that is not the look you are going for, choose colors that match your wall color, carpet color or other color scheme, with subtle patterns.
