Powder Room Decorating

Typically, a powder room is the smallest bathroom in the home and while many homeowners keep the design simple, I love to get creative and design something completely different for the space. Mixing up tiling with shiplap panelling, or installing a statement wall covering can instantly lift the whole room! Plus, it’s completely unexpected and provides visual interest.

Fun Facts:

Redecorating your powder room will be personal to each homeowner, and that’s part of the beauty with design! You can make your home whatever you want it to be and feel depending on your lifestyle.

If you really want to embrace something completely different to the rest of your home, look at painting the whole powder room in a deep and dark statement paint color. You can paint all the walls, ceiling, and trim work too!

Fancy adding some pattern for a change? Use a wallcovering on all the walls and embrace the colors and accents used within it as these can influence any paint color or accessories needed to finish off the room.

Alternatively if you need your powder room to be a practical space, explore some statement geometric tiles and consider using shiplap wall panelling too for something different.

Remember to accessorize the space with a feature wall mirror – think contrasting metal finishes and unusual shapes – and wall sconces!
