A hanging room divider help mark different uses of space in an open design concept. In an open design space, while the room is clearly defined, the rest of the space isn’t likely to be. Therefore, separate dining and living room areas can be created through the placement of furniture as well as room dividers. A hanging room divider may be made of several different materials and is often decorative as well as practical. One example of hanging room divider is tab or tie curtains. Tab or tie curtains can be used to create stationary hanging room dividers by attaching the tabs or tying the ties to large cup hooks screwed into the ceiling. By installing mounted traverse rods to the ceiling, curtains can be attached to hardware, allowing the room divider to be opened and closed. When attaching traverse rods or cup hooks to the ceiling, try to screw the screws into ceiling joists for the most secure installation.
Stud finders are slid over the ceiling and emit a sound to indicate the presence of a joist. Stud finders, traverse rods and cup hooks can be purchased at hardware or home improvement stores. Choose hanging room divider curtains dense enough to create privacy. Bedding sets and furniture covers often have coordinating fabric curtains that provide an exact match with the room decor.
