The bathroom is an essential space in any home. A bathroom offers a chance to get away from it all and relax. Many homeowners want a bathroom that is as private as possible. Making a bathroom private can be done in many ways. Proper attention to detail is crucial. Special attention should be paid to lighting, color use, fixtures and flooring. All should work in harmony to create a space that is pleasing to the eye and projects a feeling of calm reflection. Any homeowner should also think about the layout of the bathroom and how it fits in with the rest of the home. It is a good idea to have a plan in mind with an end goal and planned steps along the way.
Lighting is crucial, as I found out as I was reading this. Creating a private space in the bathroom is easier than ever before. Any homeowner should be able to block out unwanted views while still allowing sunlight to get into the room. For example, a set of shutters can be used on lower windows to help block off part of the windows and still let light in. Curtains can be placed over the shutters for even more privacy that still keeps the room light and airy. Look for shutters in a material like wood that is dense and blocks off views. You can also use filmy, opaque curtains that keep light in but keep the room private at the same time.
Colors and Fabric
Color can also help with privacy. Darker colors create a room that feels cozier. A feeling of coziness makes any room feel more private. In order to achieve this end, it is often a good idea to paint a bathroom in darker colors like navy and brick red. Paint the main walls such dark colors to help the room feel like a warm retreat. Darker colors can also be used in a larger bathroom so it feels more romantic. Use darker colors on fabric as well. Window shutters painted dark green or brown and then topped with a dark colored curtain help add detail and make the room more private at the same time.
A Restful Retreat
In general, making a bath private should focus on helping it feel like a room that allows for retreat from the rest of the house. Windows that are set up higher in the room or have window coverings that help reduce light also create a private space. Consider placing candles in the room. The candles can be used in place of artificial light at night to make the space warmer and more private at the same time. Look for specific details like thick towels, fixtures that are full of intricate details and shower curtains that block off light to help create a mood that is intimate and soft. Each detail can help create the look desired and the privacy that many homeowners crave in their private home bathrooms.
