HomeGuru has materials for saving room divider but can be used to divide the room into proportion including able to block the air well to recommend.
Air-conditioned room idea with a partition
“Partition” or many people call it “air partition” is a popular material that many homes use. The air partition is divided into 2 main types which are PVC solid partition and Japanese room partition that has glass holes drilled into each to increase the beauty and the light channel. Which the two types of room dividers are hinged together can open and close to one side of the wall or open in the middle according to the installation.
Partition is commonly used to partition a room that is quite spacious. Most often used to separate the living room, bedroom or hallway, living room stairs. In order to divide the use area into a clear proportion and used as a partition for air conditioning as well.
The advantages of PVC air partitions are that they are not dust-proof, which is a feature of PVC. They are easy to clean.

No need to smash and dismantle at all, and the most important thing is to save money. It can be opened to the maximum length of the wall when not in use.
But there are still some limitations with PVC air partition. In the case that the ceiling area that needs to be installed is tiles or gypsum. It may require aluminum beams to install to increase strength and durability when using it and despite being named the air partition. This type of material can not block 100% of the air conditioner. Due to the nature of the room divider that will have space at the top and bottom. Allowing the air to pass through, however, it can still block the air quite well.

Another economical partition idea that HomeGuru would like to recommend is to use a “room curtain” that will allow everyone to easily partition the room themselves and still invest a little. But extremely flexible, suitable for those who want to use a limited budget. Or used in areas that are not very wide Because the room partition with curtains will give a light, airy feeling, not as uncomfortable as partitioning the room with other materials.
The advantage of partitioning the room with curtains is that it can be installed in most areas. Do not leave even the corner of the room that must be cornered or curved. It is also a material that can be easily adjusted according to the style of the residents. If you feel bored in the future or have a change in the style of your room, changing or removing curtains is easy and very little damage to the structure.
The use of curtains to partition the room, you can choose to use a solid, airy, or both fabrics as needed. Curtains cannot help to block 100% of the air conditioner because there is a small gap caused by weaving for the best performance in blocking air conditioners. You should choose curtains that are rather thick. With fine weaving including paying attention to the installation process that should be installed as close as possible to the ceiling and left a long curtain to the ground in order to not allow room for air to pass through.
