If you are just thinking about renovating your house or actually moving to a new home, then you should mind having a powder room finished with basic accessories in the plan. Also called a halfway bath, the powder room is such a significant part of the house.

So, let’s start from the basics…

What Is A Powder Room In The House?

A powder room is a small bathroom that is normally composed of just a sink and a toilet.

Have you seen the room in a house where the ladies go in to touch up their make-up? That is the powder room! If you are not yet convinced about having a powder room, then here are 3 main reasons why you should:

3 Reasons Why You Need A Powder Room In Your House 

1.Keeps your bathroom private.

The bathroom is such a special room that should actually be individualized by any home owner. Suppose your master ensuite has a bathroom or it is just adjacent to your walk-in closet, would you allow people into your bedroom just so they could access the bathroom? No!

And also, you would also want to keep your personal cosmetics and grooming products private. That goes to show that indeed, the powder room is such a necessity.

2. Eases ‘traffic’ from the main bathroom.

Have you had to wait up in line for minutes before actually using the washrooms? Then you must understand that it is better to have a powder room in order to ease the commotion. This is particularly important in case you have a lot of guests visiting or if you are a big family.

3. Enhances convenience.

The powder room is usually located near the entry of public rooms like the living and dining rooms to make it easily accessible even by the guests. That way, they can help themselves or even freshen up without too much fuss.

Indeed, the powder room has to be that one room in your house that everyone seems to be visiting. This means that it becomes one of the most seen rooms in your house thus it must stand out!

Decorating a small room can be hard and requires more strategy than you would think.  First off, you can always play around with the colors to give your powder room that larger feel than it actually is. For example: painting the walls white would be amazing!

After that, give your powder room some extra touches that will turn it gram-worthy with these :

10 awesome powder room accessories

Powder rooms are normally small hence they have less fixtures. But this should not give you a reason to actually have a boring atmosphere in the powder room.

Transform your powder room into a work of art by choosing a dramatic faucet fit for the gram! Now that’s modern and elegant!

2. A Bathroom Mirror

Add sparkle and shine to your powder room with a gorgeous bathroom mirror. Play around with mirror shapes and get a good one for your powder room- you can choose to mirror the entire wall, use double mirrors or also a round mirror. It’s your choice! But remember to ensure the frames are moisture resistant.

After all, who never likes a good mirror selfie?

3. A luxurious floating sink

The floating bathroom vanity is the new trend in town!

It offers more space for storage and actually, some floating bathroom vanities have built-in cabinets. But before going for a floating sink, decide how much storage and counter space your powder room can provide.

In the powder room, the sink has to be one of the statement pieces.  In this modern age, the floating vanity pops in the space right above the counter.

4. A gram-worthy chandelier

Most powder rooms tend to have no windows and if there are there, they are made small. That means that you must do a good job with the lighting.

Instead of using some normal light bulbs, set the mood with a beautiful chandelier.

A couple of glass or wooden canisters can be such a great addition to your powder room décor since they can provide such good storage for your soaps, cotton pads, makeup wipes and even lotion.

7. A cosy mat

For the ease of cleaning, most home owners prefer tiled floors which tend to be cold and slippery when wet. Hence, the need of that cosy cotton mat for people to stand on.

8. Plush Towels

After washing your hands, you will always wish you had a soft, plush towel  to wipe off the water before you can moisturize your hands, right? Well, get one for your guests and let them feel pampered all the way!

9. Scented candles

Candles are so good that we light them during our facial or spa nights but we actually forget to bring them into the powder room as well! The scented candle releases such a reinforcing smell into the air that provides such an extraordinary sense of calm. You will want your powder room to be such a serene sanctuary, right?

Nothing makes your guests feel more pampered than a stylish, modern powder room. Incorporate these accessories in your powder room and beat the gram!

But remember, after you are done setting up your powder room, watch it and ensure that it does not look so full and chaotic. A minimalist powder room is just okay!

    I have a powder room already but it doubles as a utility room. Your powder room accessories are sure to make it so comfortable that your guests may not want to leave. I have seen powder rooms with magazine racks as well as books. How long are guests supposed to stay? Lol!

    • Dalene Ekirapa says

      Haha! That’s hilariously amazing! Trust me, if it had a magazine rack, I’d be there taking some gram shots with a Vogue magazine. They might even forget that I was actually using the powder room!

  14. samantha says

    I would love to have the backstage cast lights from those makeup mirrors for my new bathroom. I would always feel like a movie star!

  15. Farrah Less says

    This is a very nice set up of powder room cozy and neat. I always want to make our own bathroom some thing like this thank for the ideas.

    Seriously my bathroom is probably my favorite room in my house! I agree a good bathroom mirror is a must! I love decorating my bathroom so a cozy pretty mat and set is also a must!
