Have you ever seen decorative screens in a restaurant interior? As one of the most versatile elements of decor, decorative screens can answer many interior design problems in restaurants or any other commercial space. From serving as space dividers to simple decorative solutions for interiors that need some spark, they can easily become that extra “something” that gives a space character.
Interlam, a designer and manufacturer of wall panels and decorative screens, offers plenty of high-end collections that prove this point. Made of 100% recycled wood fiber, the screens are the perfect choice for the environmentally conscientious. It is the creativity in patterns, however, that makes them attractive solutions for those who are looking for both beauty and function.
Here are only a few ways you can use Interlam screens in your interior designs and take full advantage of their creative designs.
Room dividers. Screens have been long used as dividers in interior designs of commercial spaces such as restaurants and offices. In restaurants, when placed between individual seating areas or dining sections, these separating elements create a feeling of intimacy without closing up the space or causing a feeling of isolation.
In offices, such dividers can transform a large, uninspiring interior into a collection of functional areas. Guided by the placement of such decorative screens, both clients and employees can make better sense of the office space and have a feeling of order and purpose.
Light filters. The beauty of decorative screens comes partly from the fact that they can be used in conjunction with other design elements to create spectacular interiors. When used together with well-placed light fixtures, screen create plays of lights and shadows that give more texture to your walls, floors or ceilings.
Screens can also help in coming up with unique light fixtures. Hung from the ceiling and filtering the light, such screens go a long way in creating the right ambiance and giving the space the unique touch you are looking for.
Wall panels. In the case of decorative screens, function comes from beauty. The contrast between the positive and negative spaces in their design catches the attention, creates drama and draws the eye towards the area or elements you want to emphasize. However, decorative screens can also play a role in highlighting the general theme, character or style of a space through their patterns, whether these are modern, geometric, floral or organic.
Placed against an office wall, screens can define a functional area by creating dramatic backgrounds. When placed on the wall behind a hotel reception desk, they define the space as the central area of the lobby. In any other commercial or residential interior, screens used as wall decor bring in the necessary pattern and contrast for a successful design.
Small decorative objects. You do not have to think big when it comes to using screens as elements of decor. In fact, small can have as great an impact as going big. In a store, placed behind a mannequin or collection, it captures the attention and attracts customers.
Screens can turn into vertical sculptures in hotel lobbies or spas. In offices, they lend more interest to the side of a counter or desk. Finally, smaller screens, mounted against a canvas can serve as wall decor. Such uses are only limited by the designer’s imagination and creativity.
