San Antonio Bathroom Remodeling: Powder Room Remodeling Ideas
Since the small half bath on the first floor of your home may be the primary bathroom for guests, powder room remodeling ideas that make a bold statement in a small area are essential. Here we’ll be listing a few unique decorating ideas you may have never considered!
How many times have you heard that dark colors make a room look smaller? What about needing to stay away from oversize wallpaper designs? Think again!
You’ll be surprised how beautiful a vibrant wallpaper pattern or a dark color will punch up a small space – especially if you add splashes of white trim or light colored accessories to offset the darker colors. Consider using a gloss finish paint to reflect the mirrors in the room or catch the light from the window.
If you’re fortunate enough to have a window in the space, have fun with the window treatments. A beautiful woven shade or a coordinating fabric roman shade adds a functional, stylish look that can be found in a wide menu of colors.
If space is tight, you may opt to use a pedestal sink. Not only do they take up less floor space, pedestal sinks also add a bit of “air” to the room while helping it to look lighter and not so heavy with furniture. You’ll still have many choices regarding style, shape, and design. Even very small bowl sinks are available for those really petite powder rooms.
However, if you have enough space to accommodate a vanity, think about re-purposing another cabinet or even a dresser. It’s not difficult to cut holes for the basin and faucets if you measure correctly! Talk about trash to treasure! You could really have fun incorporating a faux paint finish or even covering the cabinet in mirrors. The updated cabinet vanity would certainly be the focal point of the room and would provide some extra storage as well.
Another powder room remodeling idea is to max out the mirror. Either max it out in size (keep it proportionate to the room and vanity) or max out the design. You might find just the perfect unique, decorative mirror for your guest bath or you might consider a little DIY effort and dress up a mirror you already own. A little paint and a few embellishments can make a big difference. For example, a shell covered mirror is the perfect topper in a beach theme bathroom.
Whatever style you choose to adopt in your powder room, give yourself permission to add a bit of fun and don’t be afraid to push the limit.
