These room divider screens are great for hiding a mess.
They can hide:
Stacks of newspapers and magazines,
Tax records which you leave in a semi sorted state for a couple of months until you decide to sit down and input the data,
In progress jigsaw puzzles or crafts projects,
Vacuums and cleaning supplies (if you don't have enough closet room).
Each panel is 17 inches wide and 71 inches high. They are available in 3, 4, 5, and 6 panel versions. The colors are black, cherry, natural, and white. I have two of the cherry colored 4 panel screens. The current prices seem to range from $49.99 To $99.99 per screen.
When deciding how many panels you want, remember that the panels must be at an angle so the amount of coverage is less than 17p (where p is the number of panels).
The screens are light enough to move around easily, but big enough to hide a big mess from even the tallest of your friends or relatives. They let a lot of light through, so you could use them as a portable window covering without causing the room to be dark.
The hinges are brass and the screens are quite attractive and well constructed for their price. They are imported from Taiwan. Of course, they are not well suited for rooms where children play catch or shoot projectiles.
I am very happy with my Shoji Folding Screens.
