Are you looking for an easy and inexpensive way to give your home a facelift? Shoji dividers and shoji doors may be the answer. In fact, they have long been considered the “secret weapon” of professional decorators. Whether you choose to decorate in Japanese style or you’re just trying to hide clutter, these artistic creations offer a simple solution that adds style to your home.
Most people who are familiar with shoji dividers have a picture in mind of a dark wood paned frame that is lined with translucent rice paper. While this may still be the most popular style, it is just one of many shoji screens available today. Japanese designed shoji dividers are made in a variety of fashionable designs, many of which feature monochromatic Japanese prints over solid hinged panels. Shoji doors are a bit different in that they are designed to be hung in an opening between rooms and slide on tracks like a closet door. No matter which Asian screen you choose, they all offer privacy without distracting the viewer from the center of the room.
