Bathroom screening ideas with visual impact while creating seclusion.
Providing a bit of privacy in the bathroom is a challenge for those who dislike enclosed toilet rooms. Half walls, sometimes referred to as pony walls, offer a bit of privacy, but are not always the answer. The Victorian era inspired bathroom screening ideas using folding screens. Those demonstrate a bit of imagination and cleverly conceal the commode. Upholstered with waterproofed silk fabric, the Deco style screen [top] brings wonderful style into an already elegant bath.
A double sided floor-to-ceiling hutch provides some privacy, extra storage and an opportunity for display.
For a more secluded area, consider a solid wood panel that matches the vanity. The color of natural wood warms an otherwise cool space.
Additional options for partitions include textured glass or stained glass panels, old doors or windows, a shoji screen panel, vintage iron gates or fretwork. Use floor-to-ceiling shelves to keep a space from feeling claustrophobic. No matter what the privacy level desired or design style, the alternatives are unlimited.

You always have such fresh ideas. Your comment above
“Swinging saloon style shutters made their appearance in the decorating world – most likely run out of town by the decor sheriff.” made me laugh out loud!
I have had the opportunity to remodel some pretty awful bathrooms that were in need of more than a little creativity and TLC but NEVER swinging shutters! — Too funny!
I love the Victorian screen idea for the bath. We made a screen for our basement to hide the utilities (it’s a short ceilinged, 110 year old, formerly dirt floor basement) and we frequently get positive comments.
Thank you, Sam. Your screen sounds like the perfect improvement. I have one that has always been against a wall or in a corner. Might need to rethink if we build again.
