Your Powder Room Can Make a Design Statement
What's the smallest room in your house that offers you the biggest opportunity to flex your creative design muscles? It's your powder room, of course! Powder rooms usually stay hidden behind a closed door, so your powder room offers you the opportunity to take a starkly different design approach than the rest of your house.
The powder room lends itself to experimentation. Because powder rooms are typically a smaller space, you can try things like bold colors, hardware, and fixtures without breaking your budget. Let's take a look at some stunning design ideas that can take your powder room from merely a bathroom to a design showpiece that your neighbors and guests will envy and talk about!

Add a Sculptural Element
While a powder room's small size doesn't offer much of a chance to get “sculptural,” with a little creativity you can add design features that bring dimension and texture to the space. Consider using a sculptural vanity or light fixture, or textured tile on the walls to bring in an element of dimension.
Bold Walls
Rich dark color can make a bold statement, especially in the powder room. Experiment with today's trending dark colors like variations on navy and indigo, charcoals and true black paint or wallpaper. Whether you're looking to create a Victorian feel with realistic roses or a more modern feel with abstract blooms, flowers are a big trend in powder rooms. Combine a dark colored wall with a light colored vanity, and silver accents, and you'll have a luxurious powder room to greet your guests!
Antique Brass or Bronze Fixtures
If you're looking for a little more subdued elegance, instead of silver accents, consider using antique brass or bronze hardware, fixtures, mirrors, and accessories. They go hand in hand with dark walls, and the contrast of light and dark warmed by the antique finish is a very popular look right now.
Floating Vanity
While open shelving isn't for everyone, a floating vanity is a great design element that still provides much needed bathroom storage. Using a floating vanity is a great way to create a unique look. The combination of natural or painted wood combined with an elegant sink can complete the sophisticated look. To add the the dramatic look, you can also add lighting under the vanity to create a nightlight effect for guests.
Use a Stunning Mirror
In a small powder room, the mirror can become a huge focal point in your design. It can also act to enhance natural light (if the room has a window) and can help to define your design style. Consider mirrors installed around the perimeter within a wall design. They will help brighten the room by reflecting light, but can also create the illusion of additional windows in the space.
The truth is, no matter what your style or creative vision, the powder room is the perfect place to express yourself. These are just a few of the most popular design ideas that are currently trending. The powder room is the ideal space for working with different materials like marble vanity tops, exotic wood vanities, creative tile, and color. Because it's a smaller space, you can splurge on some higher end materials without breaking the bank.
If you're thinking about adding a powder room, or if you have an older powder room in need of a face-lift, contact the design experts at CHW to help you . We can help you achieve your creative vision and design the perfect powder room that will impress your friends and family!
