If you’re longing for your powder room to have the relaxing feel of a spa you’re not alone. In fact designers are increasingly focused on this space elevating it with eye-catching trends such as brass fixtures and modern seating. While special features can really take your powder room up a notch simply organizing the space can be the first (and most effective) step in creating the spa vibe you’re after.
How smart is it to give an already ‘limited’ room a color scheme anchored in black and white? The answer to that question would be ‘very smart’ if you can get the balance between the two hues right and the lighting spot on. No matter what color you use in the powder room poor lighting can give this small space a dark and dreary look. This could very well start you off on a cycle of constant redecorating and repainting without ever realizing that the real issue at hand is poor lighting. A sparkling chandelier coupled with clever ambient lighting is the ideal way forward in the black and white powder room.
Think about planning for the perfect bathroom that is inspired by a trip to your favorite spa (or even something far less extravagant) and you are often spending an enormous amount of time shopping for the right bathtub tile and vanity. But in all this rush another essential piece of bathroom décor seems to be neglected more often than not. The gorgeous and dashing mirror above the vanity is something that we all tend to easily forget about. Yet it is this that makes a huge difference to the ambiance of the bathroom and turns even the smallest powder room into a dashing delight.
This type of checkered pattern offers a lot of dynamic within a monochrome space. The diagonal shapes give the illusion of spaciousness and even the smallest bathrooms seem like they extend further than they actually do. If you are in love with monochrome bathrooms but worry about them becoming too monotone a diagonal checkered pattern will not let you down!
Black and white powder rooms still allow you to add a fair bit of color and because of the neutral backdrop every little drop of color makes a big visual impact. Maybe this is one of the biggest reasons for the popularity of the color scheme in bathrooms as well. You can just alter the accent additions (stuff like towels floor mats and maybe even those flowers on the vanity) with changing seasonal trends to give the powder room a completely different vibe. One color that never seems to fail when coupled with black and white in the powder room is gold! When in doubt turn to golden-tinted accessories to enliven and enrich the mundane powder room.
For those who are still unsure about how to craft a dream powder room one of the best ways to start is by looking for a style that is distinctive striking beautiful and completely different from the rest of the home. This turns the small powder room into a delightful escape that is unlike anything else in the house and Victorian splendor perfectly fits this billing. The style not only brings pomp and the ‘wow factor’ but it also promises other great powder room essentials like walls that come alive with either textural beauty or splashes of color and ornate fittings that add to the oomph.
