How to Have a Picture-Perfect Powder Room
A small-scale space like the powder room can be a bit tricky to decorate but it’s the perfect place to experiment with big and bold style. Wow your guests by incorporating unique fixtures and fun décor. The key here is to pick one statement element, like a fun backsplash then opt for subtle materials for the rest. Still not sure where to start? Here are some ideas:
Use a Color that Pops
For small rooms, you usually have to stick to a neutral palette with no more than 2 or 3 hues but in the case of the powder room, don’t be afraid to use bold colors. Colors like pink, fuschia, and purple give a feminine look while gold, black, and silver give a hint of sophistication. You can also paint the cabinets with a bold hue to have that eye-catching element. This beautiful green and gold combo definitely works!
A Wall that Comes Alive
If you want to go bolder, you can use a wallpaper to add pattern (or texture) to the powder room. Wallpapers aren’t only reserved for modern powder rooms, as there are a lot of beautiful patterns and colors you can choose from. The choices are endless so there’s definitely one that will suit your unique style. Make sure to carefully choose other design elements to complement your pattern of choice.
Use a Statement Mirror
Mirrors are definitely a big part of your powder room and it goes without saying that the mirror you pick must complement the style or accentuate the theme of the room. Look for shapes that are quirky or those with a beautiful finish. Remember that every detail will eventually alter the appeal of your powder room.
Use Proper Lighting
No matter how lavish your powder room is, it’s going to end up looking dull if you don’t use proper lighting. Scones and pendants work well as it’ll turn the space look dreamier. The right use of lighting also helps make a small space look larger than it really is. Don’t be afraid to use beautiful chandeliers, too, as they add an elegant vibe.
Use a Sensational Vanity
If you want it to be the focal point, let it be much more than just a simple sink. Vintage and reclaimed units will add more character to your powder room but you can also opt for those that look a bit quirky to add a unique vibe. If you have neutral colored walls, you can add a bit of pattern through the sink, too. You can also add additional counter space, which adds functionality to the powder room.
Add Plants or Flowers
No matter how big or small your powder room area is, it’s always better with a touch of greenery. It doesn’t only give a fresh and airy feeling but indoor plants can instantly brighten any room. If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t worry, as there are a lot of plants that thrive with low light like aloe vera and mother-in-law’s tongue.
