It can be distracting when you are working from home. One solution is to section off working spaces, using partitions panels for both your room and for the table or desk.
Using a folding wall dividers creates a discrete space where you can let your family and roommates know this is a work zone. In this area, you are declaring that things must be kept neat, you are not to be distracted, and that you control this space for the purposes of work. This also helps your at-home partners as well – other spaces are not work zones and are for other household activities. Using wall partitions can help roommates and families create organized zones for work, family, and play. Partitions also help keep down the noise. Since a wall partition is portable, at the end of the day these partitions can be folded up, announcing an end to the workday. Partitioning walls that fold and then can be stored are a great option for homes and offices.
Partitioning panels have been used for centuries as a means of providing privacy for changing, creating sectioned off spaces for storage, or for establishing boundaries and spaces in rooms. The terms “portable privacy screen” and “portable room divider” are often used interchangeably, but here we will use the term to mean using a partition wall to create personal privacy spaces. Portable office walls for home and business use has been used for millennia as a means to control space and traffic flow.
In combination with the work-from-home station, portable privacy screens can be used to create a bookshelf concept. Combine your partitioning screen divider with a bookshelf or filing cabinet and create a place where documents are stored, while also dividing off space from the rest of the room, to create an office style space. The same kind of setup can be used with a vanity and clothes drawers, for a set up that is similar to a classic dressing room.
Working on a larger scale, portable and collapsible room dividers can create for you rooms within rooms. A room divider can create a play space for your kids. In an office setting, two room dividers, a couch, and a console can create a video game play area for your employees (or guests!) who need to destress.
Divider panels can surround a table and chairs so that your team now has a private meeting area. Portable room dividers are also great for use in the bedroom, to set up a temporary dressing area.
The uses for room dividers are nearly limitless and allows you to create ad hoc spaces which your business or home need for special events or day to day activities.
Privacy partitions come in a all manner of styles. Partition walls for home use are more often translucent or transparent, since parents want to keep their eyes on their kids and natural light is healthy for a home. This is in contrast to the darker tones and solid colors for partitions found in offices. Home partitions also tend to have smaller dimensions, since homes are overall smaller spaces compared to large offices. However, these are not hard and fast rules.
With open floor office plans so much in vogue, using partition walls in offices represents a different set of challenges. Workers often have a desire to set up their own personalized spaces, and having this control leads to greater productivity. However, as is shown in cutting edge offices such as that at Bloomberg Center, the need to be flexible with space and privacy is critical.
Joining a large group of partition walls together can create entire temporary office sections for temporary working groups. These can be assembled or taken down at will, depending on the needs for a particular project or team. These will be more solid partitions that will be made of materials that will allow for the easy hanging of file holders, jacket hooks, and whiteboards. This flexibility enables businesses to support their teams with the privacy that they need and to create the spaces that enable productivity.
