How do I divide a shared bedroom?


I share a bed room with my 18yr old for the time being. We each need some privacy where we are not in view of each other. We both however need to watch the same TV. We each need micro spaces each need privacy each need to see the same TV? What can we do? We both spend alot of time in here. Rm is a 13x20 with a bathroom in the room w a door for privacy. Just no bedroom privacy. Heeeelllppp!!!!☺️

    I'd get a curtain track that hangs from the ceiling and make a double sided curtain so it looks nice from both sides. Put that between the beds. Use a cute tie back when you want the room open.

      There is a large ceiling fan on the ceiling. That's a good idea though. Thanks😄

    Rebecca: I would use a folding screen. They are inexpensive. (I have done the same and we can still both see the tv.)

    When we did it we just built a very simple wall. We used a 4'x8' piece of drywall and framed it with 2'x4's. Then we nailed/screwed two simple feet onto each end. that let it stand up, give them privacy, but was easily taken out when we were done with it and the materials reused.

    Where can I purchase a folding screen and about how much do they run?

      Go online and search for "folding screens". A lot of options will come up. Prices vary as to the way they are made, and how they look. Or you could search for directions and make one. A simple one is not hard to make, nor expensive.
