Making your powder room pop will be easy with these decorating ideas. Just because a powder room is typically small, and usually reserved for guests, doesn’t mean it should be an afterthought. Glam it up and make it a wonderful retreat for your guests. Think of the room as a tiny jewel box and imagine yourself filling it with a few precious gems. Whether your style leans towards modern Zen, or cozy traditional, don't limit yourself.
A powder room is the perfect place to try out the stylish, new wallpapers available today. Don't limit yourself to your grandmother's carnation themes, but instead experiment with bold stripes or geometric designs. You may not feel comfortable overwhelming a tiny room with a bold print, so try papering one wall. If paper is still not your thing, try a flattering paint color or a soothing cream.
Your lighting can be the star of your powder room. Lantern style lighting or a beautiful chandelier can make a beautifully, stunning statement. Make sure to add dimmers to so that your guests can control their make-up lighting.
Since powder rooms tend to be tiny, they tend to benefit from large, framed mirrors, which will help increase the sense of space. Don't be afraid to go big, but make sure that the mirror is framed in order to give the room a finished look, not a dated look.
As far as accessories are concerned, the good thing is that your powder room doesn't contain all the clutter present in a main bathroom, so you can afford to be a little more precious with your toiletries and display items. Simple, beautiful glass shelves take up very little visual space, so use them to store decorative French soaps, fresh, rolled white hand towels and scented candles. . Just a few things strategically placed can lend the room a very spa-like feel.
