There are many different ways that you can add flair and accents to a screen room divider. Many of the products that you can accent with can be found at a craft store or home improvement store.

Wood and Molding

You can use it to frame in parts that you want highlighted such as an art project or stencil design. Molding can be a wonderful way to add flair and design to your room divider.


Accenting your screen with different metal accessories can be a fun way to add dimension. Different sized washers added with screws or preformed metal decorations that you might normally hang on a wall.

A very simple and decorative touch would be to use repetitive panels of the same design attached to each screen panel.

Whether you choose to accent your screen with paint, fabric, wallpaper, wood or metal you are going to be adding a design element to your space. Keep in mind all of the many choices that you have as well as making the space flow naturally. Keep the design simple and make sure that it accents the space it was meant for.
