I am looking for some advice for installation a temporary wall in my
studio condo. I am basically looking to construct a little sleeping
alcove, so the wall I would like to create would only need to be about
waist-high. Maybe a tad higher. It would only have to be a little
longer than a king size mattress. I am also open to the idea of the
temporary wall not being dry-wall. I am simply looking for a
interesting way to create the alcove. It's not a huge endeavors, but I
am very unfamiliar in this arena so any and all help and suggestions
are appreciated. Thank you very much. The perpendicular wall is made
from drywall. The ceiling is concrete and the floors are wooden. Thanks
Someone in this group responded to a similar question about a year ago.
Their answer was kinda neat and easy so I remember it.
You can use slab doors hinged so as to create a foldable screen. Buy them a
undrilled blank slabs and when you are done using them for this you can use
them as doors or desk tops. They are sold in sizes from 12" - 36" wide by
Folding screens are nice, come in 3 panel or 6. Ours is maple, but have
seen black and dark wood. Wood frame, paper or fiber insert is like
oriental rice paper. Or, you can suspend a rod from ceiling and have
some sort of curtain. Another thought would be wood or plastic
shutters, put together like folding closet doors. They come with
louvers or will take fabric inserts, lots of sizes. Vertical blinds
(yuck). Buy some styrofoam blocks, coat with something paintable and
build a wall. Bookcases or shelves, decorate back side.
