6 Modern Powder Room Ideas with Major Wow Factor

For such a small area, powder rooms are full of endless possibilities. Featuring perhaps just a sink and toilet and seen by only a few, powder rooms are the perfect space to be a bit creative. With so many modern trends today, Varian Construction is here to help with six major wow factors to turn your powder room into a power room.

Floating Vanity

When designing a powder room, a floating vanity can provide a unique focal point while highly functional. A floating vanity is a bathroom cabinet that is anchored to the wall. It does not extend to the floor as standard vanities do, which creates the illusion it is floating in the space.

They have become increasingly popular in recent years; aside from your bathroom’s aesthetics, they make any bathroom appear more spacious and add a modern minimalist look.

Custom Wallpaper

A statement or custom wallpaper is trending for many powder rooms. It’s often easier to execute a drastic design in a small space than in a larger room; if you change your mind, it takes less work to reverse.

Depending on your aesthetic, you can choose a more subtle wallpaper or something that stands out. Either way, both options are sure to impress.

Bold Color

Another way to enhance a powder room is to add an accent wall that draws the eye to the color and creates a unique feel and charm. Accent walls are thriving in the building and decorating industry.

These easy and stylish color accents will always be popular because of their flexibility.

There are unlimited paint and materials options for any accent wall. Even the location of an accent wall is purely personal.

Unexpected Tile

While humidity from showers and bathtubs drives some design decisions in full bathrooms, powder rooms typically contend with far less moisture.

Choosing a tile that looks exactly like wood will bring a realistic look to your powder room that you never expected. The options are endless for tile; your powder room will be exquisite with a myriad of colors and textures.

Custom Wainscoting

Wainscoting is a term used to describe any paneling or wall covering installed over the lower third of an interior wall. Wainscoting can be installed in several styles, each with a unique finished look. Today, some popular styles include raised panel, flat panel, beadboard, overlay, and board and batten.

Wainscoting paneling is often painted white, but this is not the only way to use it. It looks good painted in various colors or even unpainted, allowing the natural wood tones to enhance the space. And wainscoting can be oriented in any direction you choose horizontal, vertical, cut short or long, framed with a railing or without. 

Backlit Vanity Mirrors

A bathroom needs suitable lighting to be functional, and adequate lighting for a bathroom can be tricky.Small rooms and tight spaces make placing sconces, ceiling lights, and even light switches challenging.

A backlit mirror consists of LED lights behind the mirror, outlining its perimeter – giving off a subtle but sufficient light with a relaxing glow.

Installing a backlit bathroom mirror will give any powder room the beautiful and functional lighting it requires without needing individual light fixtures. The warm luminosity will transform your bathroom into an inviting and soothing space while giving you the functionality of a well-lit mirror.
