You Will Need
- Folding screen
- Framed wall
- Anchoring materials (optional)
Add a folding screen
Install a folding screen. This lends privacy to both sides of a shared bedroom. Screen panels are available in a wide variety of materials, including Plexiglas, fabric, wood, and paper.
Hang a curtain
Hang a curtain to cordon off half of the room.
Add a dividing bookshelf
Place a bookshelf across the middle of the room. With a tall enough bookshelf, the room will feel private on both sides.
Add Plexiglas blocks
Construct a room divider by stacking interlocking Plexiglas blocks. Frosted blocks afford privacy on either side of the room divider.
Frame a wall
Frame a temporary wall partition if you want still more privacy. A temporary wall is constructed like a permanent one, but is secured to the permanent walls with shims rather than nails.
