I am looking for a room divider.
It has to be folding or collapsible
because we plan to erect it every
evening and take it down and put it
away every morning.
Also, it has to stand up by itself
with no track on the floor or ceiling
because we live in a rented apartment
and can't damage the ceiling or floor.
We don't need any sound proofing, just
a sight/light blocker.
I thought this is very common and was
very surprised that I am having such a hard
time finding a good solution.
I remember there were Japanese-style accordion
partitions, I saw them before. But now
I can't find them anywhere. Home Depot does
not carry them, can't find them on the Internet.
The companies that make free standing
like Hufcor and others want ridiculous
money like $2000 for 7' high by 12' wide,
and they are panel-type, not accordion type.
And all accordion ones move on a track,
which we don't want.
Home Depot people did have a good idea:
buy 4-5 36" bi-fold doors for $29.95
each and then just stack them up slightly
overlapping. This is almost OK, but
not quite compact enough when folded.
I would greatly appreciate any suggesstions you might have.
Thank you for your attention,
