What distinguishes a decorative screen from a privacy screen ?
Well , a privacy screen can be decorative but a decorative screen may not necessarily give you privacy .
The main consideration is the screen density . Many councils will specify a minimum density of between 70% - 80% as being a privacy screen .
Anything less than this must be described as purely decorative .
Take the 2 images below . The leaf pattern on the left , has a density of about 76% while the Moroccan pattern has a density of about 50% .
Both are decorative screens but only the leaf pattern , could be described as a privacy screen .
