White and Bright
Get graphic with a bold wallpaper. Bright colors and artistic designs combine to create a statement that will have you keeping the door open when the powder room is not in use for a pop of color when you walk by. Keep other design elements at a minimum so as not to clash with the wallpaper.
Slim Pedestal Sink
Installing a curved vanity in the powder room adds a modern touch to the home. It’s especially ideal if the goal is to keep the space from feeling cramped, as the design will create more space on the floor.
Rustic Sink Statement
Add a farmhouse feel to the home by incorporating rustic touches in the powder room. A shabby chic vanity can be accomplished with some sanding and chalk paint. Install a farmhouse-style sink, and decorate the vanity with old-timey trinkets and freshly picked flowers.
