Traditionally, homeowners like hanging shoji screens made out of bamboo and rice paper in their room to privately divide them in a visually pleasant, cost-effective way. These Japanese room dividers come in tons of different colors, designs, and styles that pair well with any room.

Hanging shoji screens and doors in your room can do more than simply enhance your interior design and create more privacy, believe it or not. Here are a few of the benefits of hanging shoji curtains that you might not have realized.

1. Open Up a Room.

Although many people like to use shoji screens to divide a room for privacy, they can also be used to completely open up a room. You can use a shoji screen to create a door to the outside that when left opened can create a pleasant indoor-outdoor experience perfect for enjoying the summer and fall. Plus, they also sufficiently protect against winter and spring’s cold.

2. Natural Light.

Hanging shoji screens in your house can also introduce more light and provide a more open and spacious feeling. Since they’re translucent, light shines through them, making them perfect for rooms that could use some natural lighting to lift their gloomy appearance.

3. Very Affordable.

Though many high end homeowner enjoy hanging shoji screens in their penthouses and estates, they’re actually quite affordable. Heavy wooden doors can be pretty expensive, which makes shoji screens all the more of an attractive alternative. Plus, they’re fairly simple to install, and can be a fun weekend project for any person looking to upgrade their home.

Hanging shoji screens in your home can open up a room to your beautiful yard, introduce more light into an otherwise gloomily lit room, and can be an affordable, little project. If you have any questions about these elegant, artistic Japanese screens, feel free to ask in the comments. More:
