Although the powder room may be the smallest space in your house, there is still so much you can do with it. Use this space to have fun with lighting, texture, colors and patterns. Think about what will make your guests feel right at home in this space and how you can make it feel fresh and bold. Here are five ways to help you do just that.
#1 Use Lighting to Set the Perfect Ambiance
It's important to find the right balance between mood lighting and practical lighting, as this is, after all, a space that your guests will be using to check their appearances and touch up their hair and makeup.
To accomplish this, utilize different layers of lighting, such as overhead lighting, sconces, and pendant lights. This way, there will be plenty of choices for your guests to customize the lighting for their needs. You can even take it one step further and install dimmer switches, to allow for even more customization.
#2 Make a Statement with the Vanity
Unlike your master bathroom, your powder room is not a place you’ll be storing typical bathroom essentials like haircare, soaps, and bath towels. This means that when choosing your vanity, you don’t need to worry about storage capacity. Instead, you can focus just on aesthetics. Use this opportunity to make a statement with a beautiful marble or quartzite countertop, copper sink, gold faucets, etc. and you will be sure to wow your guests.
You can even opt for a custom created, uniquely shaped vanity that fits perfectly in your space, and for a more modern look, consider mixing your finishes to really make each piece of hardware pop.
#3 Utilize Bold Color and Pattern
In a small space, such as a powder room, mixing bright colors and fun patterns can bring the room to life, whereas in a large room, they may feel a bit over the top. Think of your powder room as the room in your house where you can experiment and have a bit more fun.
Bold wallpaper is one way to accomplish this, but there are plenty of other ways, as well. Consider colorful patterned tiles, unique hardware, a specially made vanity, and even a custom-colored vessel sink.
#4 It’s All in the Details
Be sure not to overlook all the little details that will help make for a charming memory for your guests. Think about adding fresh flowers, locally-sourced hand soap, a tray of white hand towels, and any other accessories that make your space feel complete.
#5 Infuse Your Personality into the Room
Above all else, have fun creating this memorable space for your guests. Use unique design elements that make you and your guests feel happy, refreshed, and energized.
You can opt to pick a color scheme, curated theme, or just focus on creating a lovely, bold space that stands out by experimenting with pattern, color, and texture.
