Powder rooms are also known as half-baths because they are small bathrooms that only feature a toilet and sink. These small spaces are ideal for making a big statement since the cost will be affordable due to the reduced scale. Guests also commonly use these as bathrooms, making them ideal for showing off the homeowner’s artistic side.
Try these tips to design a powder room that earns compliments.
Experiment with Bold Patterns and Colors
Colorful tiles, boldly patterned wallpapers, and dark colors that would overwhelm other rooms are ideal for decorating small spaces like powder rooms. Some decorators even use contrasting patterns in matching colors, or contrasting colors with complementary patterns, to amp up the drama in this room. Don’t be afraid to finally use those bright colors or combinations that seemed a little too much for other parts of the home.
Add a Console Vanity
The elegance and extra visual appeal of a console vanity make it ideal for a powder room. The space below a console is still open for storage thanks to the freestanding legs, but it’s more impactful than the standard pedestal sink. It’s even more space-saving than a full-sized cabinet vanity as well. Consider a console with a raised sink to pair with one of the many beautiful vessel faucets.
Try a Fanciful Faucet
Whether a wall mount faucet or centerset faucet is the right fit for the room, make sure it’s a statement piece. Victorian style wall mount faucets are great for classic bathrooms that need traditional beauty, and they also free up valuable counter space in a small powder room. Basic centerset faucets can still feature unique designs like curved goosenecks and ultra-modern rectangular shapes that help them stand out in the powder room.
