A powder room is one of the rooms in your home that almost every guest will see. When planning your whole home remodel, don’t forget to give this small space the thoughtful design attention it deserves.
There are several ways a powder room can make a dramatic impression on guests:
Color and Materials
In such a small space, interesting textures and materials can truly be appreciated. The powder room above in a contemporary urban loft contrasts the industrial textures of the intricately layered wall and the concrete sink with the gleam of red and black tiles in a custom niche.
Lighting for Mood
Powder rooms don’t need the same kind of task lighting that master bathrooms require. Softer lighting, such as the elegant duo framing the mirror in this California Contemporary powder room (upper right) creates the restful atmosphere of a mini retreat.
Art and Design
Take advantage of the smaller scale of a powder room to display art and objects that benefit from a closer look and might get lost in other areas of your home. The niches in the wall of this award-winning Asian-inspired powder room are seductively lit to highlight favorite pieces.
With the help of a unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals, a small powder room can become a conversation point and memorable design statement in your whole home remodel. By applying big ideas to small spaces, our designers help you envision a powder room that is just right for your personal style.
