Apart from offering textural contrast inside the modern bathroom, a live‐ edge vanity top can also be a smart space saver when placed in the corner of a tiny powder room where every inch matters. Since you do not need too much storage or even counter space, a small slab of wood will do the trick, and combined with the right sink and plumbing, you can create a wide range of styles that vary from industrial to rustic. Sconce lighting next to the mirror or a simple pendant light along with the frame of the mirror used in the powder room can define this style and reinforce it with ease.
Many homeowners like neutral shades when it comes to choosing the paint colors for bathrooms. Colors like brown, beige, white and ivory can be considered ‘warm without overpowering‘ and they never go out of style. One can also add a splash of color by selecting brighter accessory pieces, linen and other decorative bath items. Peach, apricot, pinks and other skin tones also make for some flattering bathroom color ideas. Not only are these cozy, they are ideal to pair up and coordinate with the timber and laminate you use for your bath cabinets. A bolder choice in these can add a dash of color to the space. Pale shades can also make the bathroom appear airy.
Wallpaper is the perfect way to give your Victorian powder room the backdrop it deserves. There are plenty of options here, with some designs focusing on understated pattern and metallic sheen, while others offer a more playful ambiance with bright colors and extravagant motifs. Either way, choosing the right wallpaper is a great way to start planning for your smart powder room.
