A downstairs powder room is all too often decorated in exactly the same style as the room it happens to adjoin. In most home settings this means the rest room will have the same design as the hallway. However, there is no good reason that your corridor and powder room should share the same wallpaper and flooring. For the smallest room in the home, invest some thought into designing it just as you would for other living spaces. After all, your guests will be likely to pay the powder room a visit and a well designed one will make them feel comfortable in your home.
When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don’t have to squeeze past it.
This idea entails open shelving being installed under the toilet sink to accommodate washed and dry towels, toiletry units for every member of the household and a towel rack for wet towels. Even the first aid box can fit into such shelving. One good thing about this type of shelving is that it does not necessarily have to take up any floor space. There are also already made roll-out under-sink drawers that are removable and helps you keep your bathroom organized in a minimal space.
Bathrooms should be one of those places that you can luxuriate in for a few hours without feeling guilty. No other color gives a sense of opulent luxury in the same way that red does. So, if you want to give your bathroom, or en-suite facility, a little extra try out using some deep red to bring a touch of glamour to bath time. Most bathrooms stick to white, chrome and occasionally blues. By going for lipstick reds your bathroom will stand out from the crowd. The key to incorporating red into your bathroom is not to overdo the use of the color.
