I purchased this screen to cover a storage access door located about 8 feet from the floor in our family room. It will hang on the wall as an art piece, but the hinged panels will swing open to allow easy access to the door. This screen will be a lovely, functional focal point in our mid-century modern/Zen-themed room. My only small criticism is that the black finish is really shiny, but since it won't be hanging at eye level, not a big deal at all. Absolutely merits 5 stars for appearance, function and price.
