Small Space, Big Potential

When it comes to bathroom remodels people tend to focus on transforming their hall bathrooms and master bathrooms. They often overlook their powder rooms.


Notoriously small, powder rooms are basic areas that nobody is ever really impressed by. However, due to its smaller footprint, a powder room is the perfect place to make a big impression without breaking the bank.


For this powder room project, we were fortunate enough to have worked with this client previously on their kitchen remodel. The home is a historical home and we wanted to make sure we updated the space without going too modern that it would feel disconnected from the rest of the house.


The black and white hexagon floor tile is a classic choice. It offers a simplistic color palette while creating a point of interest with the hexagon shape and the addition of black color throughout. If you have a dated bathroom space but have this tile on your floor, consider yourself lucky. You just saved money on having to buy new floor tile and you can instead focus on spending more for other fixtures in the space.



The one thing the homeowner had emphasized before the start of this project was the need for more storage space. We made sure to select a vanity with adjustable shelving inside as well as drawers. We also added a medicine cabinet mirror.


Medicine cabinets have gotten a bad rep over the years, but they have come a long way. From built-in lighting to beautifully framed edges, these pieces bring ample storage space without sacrificing style.





The plumbing fixture selection also helped keep with the historical integrity of the space. We selected pieces that had the rounded edges common throughout the 1900s but gave them a modern edge by choosing a matte black finish.


Matte black has been growing in popularity for some time, but the finish can be on the more expensive side. Using it in a powder room is the best way to keep up with popular design trends without breaking the budget by having to outfit an entire full bathroom.


We completed the space with the light blue color on the walls to give the space more definition. It was a challenge deciding what color to use on the walls especially since we had an already established black and white motif. Initially, we were leaning towards a light grey but when we found this blue it was instantly clear that we found our color.
