A powder room is a bathroom on a smaller scale. It typically only has a vanity and toilet, plus space for a few bathroom essentials. Despite being smaller than your typical bathroom space, it offers comfort and convenience not just for your household but for guests as well.
When designing a powder room for your home, make sure to keep in mind these do’s and don’ts.
Do Prioritize Your Needs
Be sure to prioritize needs when remodeling a powder room. The toilet, sink and vanity should come first throughout the design phase because they are essential. You can then concentrate on the other fixtures once you’ve established where these items will go.
Don’t Add More Storage
When planning your powder room, don’t put too much emphasis on storage because this isn’t the area to keep your extras. Consider choosing a stylish pedestal or wall-mounted sink instead of the conventional sink with cabinets to save room.
Do Consider the Room’s Functionality
Since the powder room has fewer features than your main bathroom, make sure to emphasize functionality when designing the space. Put the vanity in a convenient location. When selecting lighting and other fixtures, make sure they are simple to use so you can make the most of the space.
Don’t Make It Too Busy
Making a small space feel busy is the worst thing you can do when designing a powder room. Avoid stuffing the space with too many decorations. Instead, focus on a single feature that will serve as the room’s focal point. This will help make your powder room neat yet stylish.
Do Think About Lighting
There often aren’t windows in powder rooms. As such, you need light fixtures that do the work for you. Space will be at a premium, so think carefully about the lighting you choose. A bar light over the mirror would be a good choice. You could also hang sconces on the wall. The powder room doesn’t need a lot of light, but you do need to make up for the lack of natural light.
