By: leedobbins
Decorating your home in an Asian inspired decor can add elegance and tranquility to your life. The rich colors and interesting accessories will add interest and uniqueness to every room in the house but if you really want to make your interiors stand out, you might think about using a room divider to enhance the Asian feel of your decor.

First off, you need to pick the style of room divider that goes with the Asian decor in the room. Are you going for a zen like feel? Then you'll most likely want something simple like a Shoji rice screen room divider. If you want something more decorative, you could try a painted room divider with Asian scenes on them. If you are into more of an antique look, a black lacquer divider with raised shell decorations might do the trick.

Once you have selected the style of room divider, you want you need to choose the perfect spot in the room for it. Room dividers can look great in many places - here's some suggestions:

1. Stand your Asian style room divider up right against the wall and use it as a focal point. This works great if you have a really long wall and want to break it up. You'll want to put something in front of it like a couple of big plants or a couple of chairs to use as a little conversation area.

2. Use it to divide a room. Well, of course! If you have a long room and want to make it into 2 separate areas you can plunk the room divider right in the middle to section it off. This is a great way to separate a dining and living room or make a little sitting room inside the bedroom.

3. Dress up a bare corner by folding the room divider kitty cornered. This really adds interest to the room and gives it a nice look instead of being all squared off. As an added bonus, you can use the space behind the room divider for storage.

4. If you are decorating a bedroom and don't have a nice headboard, why not use a room divider? Just use it flat instead of folded and slide it right behind the bed. This will and a really interesting look to the room and help make your bed a focal point.

Using a room divider can be an interesting way to spice up your Asian inspired theme in any room. There are plenty of styles to choose from that should suit any decor and the best part is that they are versatile so if you want to change your room around, you can find many different used for it.
