Ready to Redo Your Powder Room? 4 Ideas to Make the Most of Your Space
By Rachelle Wilber
When it comes to powder rooms, most of us think that bigger is better. But what if you don’t have a lot of space to work with? You can still create a beautiful and functional powder room – you just have to be a little bit more creative. Here are some tips on how to make the most of your small powder room.
1. Create Visual Interest with Wallpaper
One way to make a small powder room feel bigger is to create visual interest with wallpaper. patterns can make the room feel busy and cluttered, so go for something simple and chic. A large-scale print or a bold color will make a big impact in a small space. And if you’re worried about wallpaper being too permanent, opt for removable wallpaper instead. That way, you can change it up whenever you want without having to repaint the entire room.
2. Choose Unique Lighting Fixtures
Another way to add visual interest to a small powder room is to choose unique lighting fixtures. Use the time during your bathroom renovations to change out the lighting. Statement lighting is a great way to add personality to any space, and it can help to brighten up a small room. Just make sure that the fixtures you choose are in proportion to the size of the room. Oversized light fixtures will make the space feel even smaller.
3. Use Mirrors to Create the Illusion of Space
Mirrors are your best friend when it comes to making a small space look larger. Place a mirror on one wall, opposite a window, to reflect natural light and make the room feel brighter and more open. You can also try hanging two mirrors side by side to create the illusion of expanded space. Just be sure not to overdo it – too many mirrors will make the room feel like a funhouse.
4. Add Some Greenery
Last but not least, adding some greenery can help liven up a small space. A few well-placed plants can add color and life to any room, and they can help purify the air as well. If you don’t have much natural light in your powder room, opt for low-maintenance plants that don’t need direct sunlight to thrive. Aloe vera or snake plants are good choices that are relatively easy to care for.
Powder rooms are typically one of the smallest rooms in our homes, which can make renovating them seem like quite a challenge. But with a little bit of creativity, you can turn your powder room into a stylish and functional space that everyone will love spending time in – even if it is just for a quick touch-up before heading out for the night! By choosing unique fixtures, adding some greenery, and using mirrors judiciously, you can create an impactful powder room that doesn’t skimp on style or function – no matter how small it may be!
