Anyone who knows me understands that when it comes to dealing with color, more is always better. So, with that said, I frequently see a lot of small rooms, such as a powder room neglected and inadequately designed with no color – period! However, last week, I posted on how I turned my small powder room into a definite wow factor. Regardless, if it is a small area, I always feel that it still should be styled to become part of the home. Powder rooms have been around forever and are generally used by guests, which I do keep in mind when this type of area is part of a design project. Moreover, there are four main factors that I like to see within this type of space, and this does not include the toilet because that is a must – but a great backdrop, lighting, mirror, and sink.
I do not mean just any backdrop, lighting, mirror or sink, but something beyond extraordinarily transcending. Even though modernism will always be at the center of my heart, and I have seen some of the most fantastically designed modern powder rooms, I still like to see how other styles look with over-the-top intricate detailing as well. All my guests who admire my powder room, especially during Holidays, it always seems to become the talk of many conversations. One of the main reasons why I decided to incorporate a variety of different colors is because when I get ready to revamp, which is coming soon, I will not have to spend much time searching out a varied color palette.
Design Tip: When working with a powder room, before designing, make sure that there is a solid backdrop (interior walls, specific flooring, and ceiling) in place. In doing this, when it is time for a revamp, the foundation for the design will be in place, and it will only require switching out the decorative objects.
Different styles can fall under these four categories: Classic, Contemporary, Eclectic, or Modern. Also, even though minimal, global, glam, preppy, coastal, and farmhouse is not in the images below, they can easily be incorporated to create a beautifully designed powder room.
