Minimal privacy. Whether the objective is to make the toilet seem separate or to give a hint of privacy, a privacy screen is the way to go. This modern white screen creates a visual divide while providing a textural focal point.
Moderate privacy. Tuck the toilet behind a wall in its own niche. I love the idea of having a small room within a room. The artwork inside the niche is a nice touch. You can also add a wall-mounted shelf for accessories like candles and tissues.
Maximum privacy. If you are lucky enough to have a spacious bathroom, a separate water closet is ideal. Avoid door traffic by installing a pocket door.
Minimal privacy. Have an interesting architectural artifact? If you have a random, flat architectural piece or textile, treat it as a screen. This Chinese screen is great looking and creates a stylish barrier between the vanity and toilet.
Moderate privacy. This bathroom simply took advantage of good space planning. An oversize shower wall also creates a niche for the toilet.
Maximum privacy. Consider a glass shower enclosure for your toilet. Just a few inches away from the vanity, this opaque enclosure allows the toilet to feel miles away with its etched-glass walls that are full ceiling height.
Minimal privacy. Display some fabulous art glass. Imagine the surprise of having a beautiful art installation to look at every time you are using the loo.
Moderate privacy. I think this is a great idea. A half wall that floats in the room is a creative way to establish some privacy. This arrangement reminds me of time-out seats.
Minimal privacy. Consider frosted, patterned glass. This is truly a great-looking option. With very little pattern in this otherwise minimalist bathroom, the glass adds detail and character. Glass companies have several artisanal glass options.
Moderate privacy. Place the toilet behind built-in cabinets. Another great use of space, this bathroom would feel way too big without this row of cabinets for linens and other storage. The built-in doubles as a privacy wall for the toilet.
Minimal privacy. Reed glass is slightly opaque. Here a piece of reed glass is framed within a warm wooden frame.
Moderate privacy. Use location-specific materials to create a visual break. This bamboo screen tells a great story about the Hawaiian location of the property.
