Powder baths, also known as half-baths, are bathrooms without a tub or shower. They are usually located near the main living area for guests to use. These spaces are some of the most fun and easy to decorate because they can have their own identity. You can get very creative in a powder bath with color, texture, and style since it isn’t attached to a bedroom. They are also usually quite small, so elements that may be outside your budget in larger areas of the home can be affordable in a powder bathroom because of the limited square footage.
The possibilities are endless, so don’t miss the unique opportunity to have fun decorating your own. Here are 10 powder bathroom decorating ideas and tips to inspire you.
Grasscloth adds a warm, natural texture to this powder bath’s limited wall space. The extra molding gives it an upscale look that ties in with that great window.
A bold, graphic wallpaper looks great in such a small space, especially with the paneling accentuating the height of the ceiling.
Think outside the box when it comes to common bathroom elements, such as the mirror above the sink. A smaller mirror leaves more room for that beautiful wallpaper to be the focal point.
An upscale finish such as this metallic wall may cost a lot in a larger space and overwhelm it, but in this tiny powder bath it is the perfect statement piece.
Dark walls look rich and luxurious in this narrow space, allowing the marble sink to shine.
Powder baths usually don’t require storage space, so a unique space-saving sink can fit in nicely leaving more room for decorative features.
The antique cabinet makes a wonderful conversation piece for this bathroom full of historical charm and character.
A wall of glass tile has an upscale, spa-like feel to it that creates the perfect accent to a bathroom your guests will love.
This powder bathroom is serene in its simple grey palette, letting the molding and finishes speak for themselves.
If there is a wall finish you have been dying to try but couldn’t find the right spot in your house for, then try it in the powder bath. This peacock motif might be overwhelming any place else but it has a definite “wow” factor in this bathroom.
Think outside the box when designing your powder bath and it just might become one of your favorite spaces in the house.
