The Powder Room: Small Space, Big Style

The Powder Room: Small Space, Big Style

A boring powder room is a missed opportunity! These small spaces in our homes are the ideal place to showcase the inner you when it comes to pattern, color, and style. Go ahead, mix it up, let your inner designer speak. You won't break the bank in these tiny rooms, so if the rest of your home is cool and contemporary, try going wildly Moroccan in the powder room.  Whichever style you prefer use your powder room to create an unforgettable moment for your family and guests.

The powder room look above is easily accomplished with our Color It! Cuerda Seca Custom Paint Tool.  Here I chose two of my favorites, Tusk and Silver Lilac to achieve a playful but cohesive quilt-like mosaic.

For a truly Moroccan experience, try our Persian Star in a neutral, warm, or cool motif.

This powder room creates a glamorous aesthetic pairing a graphic Moroccan tile pattern with gold accents.

Another great option is staying neutral on the walls with a classic white subway tile and going with a bold pop of pattern on the floor with a Handpainted tile design.

With clean, geometric lines and graphic colorways, Old Cairo, from our Moroccan Collection is spot on as a powder room floor option.

Whether you decide to go for old world charm, or prefer to keep it bright and fresh, designing a powder room is always a delightful and creative process, where whimsy and fantasy feel at home.

If you love pattern but don't want it to overwhelm your small space, try using Handpainted tile as wainscoting met by fresh white walls.

To recreate the look above, try our Color-It! tool, pick your own color motif and we'll make it happen.  Or Choose from any of our Handpainted collections featuring a cool motif.

While some like to keep it simple, a powder room is a great opportunity to experiment with all-over pattern so if you're feeling bold, go ahead–use all over prints to maximize impact.
