Design a Stylish Powder Room for Your Guests

 

We love having guests over to our home, but we hated it before we had a fabulous powder room for them to use. Our powder room used to be blah, so I would say that it was a closet and allow guests to use our master bathroom. However, that became a hassle as well, because we would need to hide everything in there before people came over. And, if people came over unexpectantly, we were always unprepared.

The answer was finally creating a stylish powder room for our guests and you can do it too!

Here are 3 things to do when designing a stylish powder room for your guests:

Go Big and Go Bold

Powder rooms are never massive spaces, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t utilize bold colors and bright designs. So, choose that bold paint color or that large patterned wallpaper and embrace the fact that your powder room will look larger than it really is. You can even add a large mirror over the vanity to reflect the lighting in the room, as that will make the room look bigger as well.

Think About Your Guests

You might use your powder room once in a while, but it is your guests that you will need to make sure are comfortable in this space. We encourage you to make sure that there is always plenty of hand towels, soap, tissues, toilet paper, lotion, and other little extras in this space. Your guests will love your thoughtfulness and the fact that they never need to ask you for something while they are in there.

Install Plenty of Lighting

There are usually never any windows in powder rooms, which means that you need to make sure that you install plenty of lighting in that room. Too little lighting will make the space look small and cramped and no one will be able to see what they are doing while they are in there. Plus, excellent lighting will make it easier for you to keep this space clean in between guests.

It is easy to create and design a stylish powder room that you and your guests will love. In fact, you may like it so much, that you may decide that you need to use it every once in a while yourself.
