EASY! The powder bath. “Maybe” all guests might go to your kitchen or living room but you know that virtually every guest that comes to your home will visit the powder room at least once! So, let’s take it up a notch and pay some much needed attention to this well used space. Too many people think a white porcelain pedestal sink is the ultimate in powder baths. NOT.

Be bold!

There are so many things that can be done in this typically small bath. It is an area where you can be a little bold, push the envelope a bit, step away from your comfort zone. Some of these small baths must multitask and have a shower or tub and perhaps they double as a “everyday” bath for someone in your home. In my house on the beach, this is the case. I plan to start remodeling this bath as soon as can find even just a few hours to think about it. Hopefully be fore my oldest goes off to college!

My favorite type of bath to design!

I really love bathrooms and all the design elements that they encompass so I am going to publish a few of the small/powder baths we have done and follow up with a few I admire from others! Enjoy!

Stunning powder bath. I wanted it so beautiful that a door was not necessary! Of course a door closes off the potty area!
Another double duty bath. For short term guests and long term guests. Very traditional and elegant.
A modern powder bath with a glass sink and lots of tile.
Truly small bath! A 7ft tall ceiling presented lots of challenges but this condo bath came out gorgeous!
Classic. And oh ok, a white porcelain pedestal! But note(reflection in mirror) the unique storage above the tub!
LOVE the limestone on the walls. This bath was able to hold a nice vanity as well as the linen cabinet you see on the right side.
Grasscloth is classic in a powder room. Add sconces for dramatic lighting.
