Pleated shades provide privacy needed as part of half-bath decor
Apr 13 2011
For homeowners who are looking for a way to make their half-baths look less cramped, some decorating tips can help give the illusion of more space in those tight quarters.
Half-baths can be made to look larger with pedestal sinks rather than those with a vanity.
Installing a pedestal sink and wall-hung vanity, for instance, creates some space around the bathroom fixtures, rather than the more structured vanity-and-sink combination.
According to Design2Share.com, half-baths - or powder rooms - often are the restrooms used by guests, so homeowners may want to use stylish sink fixtures, lighting and some wall art for decorating flourishes.
As in other rooms, mirrors can be used to reflect light and volume. A monotone color scheme also broadens the space, but it should be broken up by some contrasting hues. Using dark wood flooring or an interesting floor tile pattern breaks up the color pattern of the room.
For a bathroom window, pleated shades provide the same privacy as regular shades, and come in a variety of materials, colors and finishes to match any powder room décor. Their popularity has also led to a wide variety of shapes that can be fitted to any size window.
