More and more homes these days are designed with an open plan layout, especially as developers swoop up old warehouses and factories and transform them into condos and private homes. For those with an innate need to separate your various living areas, this can be troublesome. But installing a hefty, costly wall isn't your only option. Consider, instead, hanging a floor-to-ceiling curtain on hospital tracking. The curtain can easily be slid open and closed for full privacy, but it offers more versatility and softness than a wall or room divider. And when you come down with the redecorating bug, you can always medicate your mood with a different fabric.
