Powder Me Up, Buttercup!

May 1, 2021

Powder Rooms are a great way to step out of your comfort zone and go all out!

A powder room is the guest bathroom on the main floor that usually only the guests use. They are a great way to experiment with color and pattern because it is such a small space, and they can afford to carry the boldest design elements in your home. No boundaries!

Think about using a different floor- glass, pattern, color or decorative tiles. Leave your fear behind and remember, the space is small, so it can afford it all!

Think about using a wall covering- bring the floor into the walls with accents of color, texture, and pattern. Coordinating a patterned tile to a patterned wall covering makes for a fun space that you would never try in the main areas of your house!

Think about the lighting in the room- Rid of the vanity light and swap it out for a mini chandelier, hanging pendant above the mirror or sconces! Depending on what type of feel you are going for, we try to bring in lighting that compliments the wall covering and flooring.

Powder rooms are great for experimentation with design and it gives your guest a WOW! Add a cool mirror and don’t hold back!
