The best option will largely depend on what your needs are and how your space is laid out. Many of the models on the market have small cracks between panels, which takes away from absolute privacy. So, if you are sharing a room with someone and don't want them to be able to see anything from the other side you may want to consider something like the Nicetown Sliding Curtains or the Steelaid Partition Screen.
For people seeking a decorative way to conceal some boxes or create a separate space in their living room, something like the Kernorv Hanging Screen or the The Legacy Decor Shoji might be the right fit.
While the options on this list do a great job of partitioning off space, most of them aren't designed for outdoor use or to reduce noise. If you're interested in sectioning off your backyard or open-air event venue, take a look at our post about bamboo fencing.
