The guest bath or powder room is typically a small main floor half bath with, at the least, a sink, a toilet and a mirror. This is often the home’s smallest room yet ironically one of the spaces that will get the most traffic.
You want to show off your style for your guests, starting with the sink. Some choices are vessel sinks, console tables, self-rimming sinks on marble countertops, and furniture-quality vanities. Since you are interested in creating an impact in this small room, for once it’s not so important to focus on practicality. If you prefer the distinctive look of classic furnishings, select cabinetry with the look of fine furniture. Or convert an antique dresser to serve as your vanity.
Vessel or Pedestal?
Pedestal sinks are available in styles ranging from contemporary to Victorian. In a large bathroom, they create a focal point. In a small bath, their slim profile visually enlarges the space. Most of these are made from vitreous china. They can also be found in porcelain-coated steel. A truly custom look can be created by bronzing the pedestal.
Vessel sinks come in hundreds of styles and you can find one that complements your décor style.
Bold Wall Colors
Dark wall colors make a better impression in powder rooms than pastels. Earth tones are also a popular wall color choice. This is an area where you can go for a dramatic look. Since the space is relatively small, an investment in an exotic flexible wall covering or decorative PVC three-dimensional wall panels will make a big impact in your powder room.
For powder room countertops, consider using bright or shiny materials such as granite or quartz. If you are looking for a “green” alternative to your countertop but still want shine and durability, consider recycled glass. For real pizzazz, try an underlit countertop of quartz. The powder room, while small, makes a big statement about you and your home.

When she presented me with the design, it literally took my breath away. The beauty of what she had designed was unparalleled and the quality is unsurpassed.
