While a powder room is usually quite small, there is no reason why it shouldn’t be big in style. It’s a great addition to your home when your friends stay overnight from time to time. If it were near your room, in the dark you wouldn’t be surprised if you look for it and stumble across your precious furniture.
We’d like to share with you a few things to keep in mind when designing a powder room. It doesn’t require storage, natural light is usually not a priority so all you need is a toilet itself, a small sink, and a single chandelier. Though you might want to decorate it with style. Cool wallpaper, a fancy sink, a beautiful chandelier, and probably a small cabinet under the sink are things to choose from. We have put together a number of powder room designs to help you choose.
Printed wallpaper is a hot idea to use to decorate walls, and powder rooms are no exception – you can go for anyone that makes this small space stand out. You can go for a statement wall with wallpaper and add shiplap and panels to the other walls, or mix wallpaper with tiles or anything else you like. Concrete walls work well for minimalist and industrial spaces, and tiles can be creative too – inspired by wood or stone. Create any combinations that match your powder room style and colors.
Furniture and appliances
The only piece of furniture you typically see in a powder room is a vanity, although it may not be there either. A vanity should be very slim, wall-mounted, or light. You can skip the vanity and opt for a wall-mounted sink if space is small. If you need storage space, go to open shelving, use your vanity, or build a built-in unit somewhere in the walls. If you have a large powder room, you can build in a large closet for storage or opt for a large vanity with plenty of storage space.
Lights and decor
We don’t usually see windows in the powder rooms, although there may be some with frosted glass which means you don’t have a lot of light here. So watch out for the lights. Built-in ones are always great for small spaces. If you want, you can also go for pendant lights or even chandeliers to match your toilet style. For decor, you can try a gallery wall, potted plants, signs, and maybe a mirror in the frame that goes with the style. Add storage baskets if there is enough space, or put boxes on the shelves above the toilet. Get inspired!
