I’d like to believe that I have a close family: husband, three children, 1 dog — and we are constantly together. But, there is 1 thing I would rather not share … yup, the bathroom. I know that it’s TMI (too much information), but can we please talk about bathroom timing? I need to be left alone when I am in the restroom, and also for some reason that is easier said than done. Yes, apparently this room also must be shared.
Have you ever noticed that your family unexpectedly needs you when you’re in your restroom? My husband has some cosmic ability to always call my cell phone once I shut the door. (I know, it’s my fault for getting my cell phone with me) It’s common for my children to walk in to ask if I have seen a missing shoe. Even my dog is quite curious about what I am doing when I shut the door. He waits right outside trying to nudge it open with his nose. Then he stares at me once I come out, like to say “What was that about?”
Remember, you could always use that lock onto the door. But for all those days when discussing is needed, you may want as much privacy as you can. Never fear! designers have figured out how to create bathrooms both big and small more private for bathroom time.
Minimum solitude. Whether the purpose is to earn the bathroom seem separate or to give a hint of solitude, a privacy screen is the thing to do. This modern white screen makes a visual split while providing a textural focal point.

Moderate solitude. Tuck the bathroom behind a wall within its own market. I adore the concept of having a small space within a room. The artwork within the market is a great touch. You can even add a wall-mounted shelf for accessories such as candles and cells.

Maximum solitude. If you are lucky enough to have a spacious bathroom, a separate water closet is ideal. By installing a pocket door, stay away from doorway visitors.

Minimum solitude. Have an interesting architectural artifact? If you have a random, horizontal architectural bit or cloth, treat it as a screen. This Chinese screen is great looking and produces a stylish barrier between the vanity and bathroom.
Moderate solitude. This bathroom simply reap the benefits of good space planning. An oversize shower additionally produces a market for your bathroom.
Maximum solitude. Consider a glass shower enclosure to your bathroom. Only a couple inches away from the dressing table, this opaque enclosure allows the bathroom to sense miles away with its etched-glass walls which are complete ceiling height.
Minimum solitude. Display some fantastic glass. Imagine the surprise of having a beautiful art setup to look at every time you’re using the loo.
Moderate solitude. I believe that this is a fantastic idea. A half wall which floats in the area is a creative way to establish some solitude. This arrangement reminds me of time-out chairs.
Minimum solitude. Consider frosted, patterned glass. This is truly a option. With hardly any pattern in this otherwise minimalist bathroom, the glass adds detail and character. Glass firms have several glass options.

Moderate solitude. Set the bathroom behind walk-in closets. Another fantastic use of space, this bathroom would feel way too big without this row of cupboards for linens and other storage. The built-in doubles as a privacy wall to your bathroom.
Minimum solitude. Reed glass is a bit more opaque. Here a piece of reed glass is framed inside a warm wooden frame.

Moderate solitude. Use location-specific substances to make a visual rest. This bamboo screen tells a fantastic story about the location of the property.
