The Shoji Screen is Functional and Aesthetically Pleasing

While the Japanese traditionally use the Shoji screen for the purpose of meditation, most Americans use one as an attractive way to divide space. While some Americans, of course, do use it in the traditional manner, it also works well in separating space in order to create an extra bedroom in a loft or attic area to divide a large room into a living area and home study, or even to make a separate, quiet area for afternoon napping. Whether it is used for meditation or not, the final result is that a Shoji screen is a convenient and aesthetically pleasing way to divide a room and can have numerous applications.

One of the attractions of the Japanese divider is that one can use it to create a private area without having to necessarily use extra lighting. Ambient light from the normal house fixtures, or sunlight from outside can filter through the screen and illuminate the space. As per the ancient tradition of feng shui, the screen is a functional way to direct energy through the room while simultaneously creating the conditions for privacy.
