A bold splash of color in the powder room has become something of a trend in recent times with homeowners willing to add audacious wallpaper and bright hues to give this small space a huge personality. Much like the other ‘hot trends’ this love for vivacious color might not last forever but one color scheme that never goes out of trend is the classic duo of black and white. If you have ever stepped into a black and white bathroom you will easily understand the timeless elegance of this combination and why it is perfect for your fashionable powder room as well.
Powder rooms are usually small with the ultra-tiny ones barely having enough space for a person to squeeze in and make a proper turn inside! But we have been lucky enough to stumble upon a few powder rooms that are larger than some of the more modest bathrooms we have come across! If you are blessed with that amount of space feel free to go more ornate with your Victorian overhaul. 3D wall paintings and wall art are always welcome here as long as they fit in with the broader more classical theme and bright colors can be used more freely inside these larger spaces.
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.
Maybe your bathroom already looks rustic and old-fashioned but maybe it’s more on the modern side. Either way a copper tub is a good choice! It will either perfectly match the rest of the rustic interior or be that one vintage element that feels like a soul of the room!
Every bathroom vanity is only truly complete when you couple it with the perfect lighting fixtures and a cool mirror. Mirrors with LED strip lighting on the edge combine both these features in a dazzling space-saving fashion. They are a great choice for those trying to create a refined spa-styled minimal ambiance without having to compromise on practicality. In the small powder room these illuminated mirrors remove the need for additional pendants of sconces next to the mirror and all you will ever need are neatly placed recessed lights.
Finding a balance between black and white in the powder room can be a tricky affair at the best of times and a good segue between the two is to use the different shades of gray on offer. Gray is undoubtedly the hot neutral of this decade and its ‘power’ only seems to grow with each passing season. Giving the powder room a gray tint while embracing the black and white look is a great way to combine both trendy and timeless elements in a seamless fashion.
