Small Powder Room Ideas From Our Recent Complete Home Remodel

Did you see our recent home remodeling interior design blog posts? Recently, our Dallas interior design firm completed an entire home remodeling project for an awesome couple – Mr. & Mrs. Ivey. If you haven’t already seen their kitchen, family room, dining room, or home office – you’ll want to click on one of those rooms to see the coordinating rooms. They are a lovely family and their home is simply spectacular. Today I want to take you to their powder room that also serves as their guest bathroom.

While the guest bathroom has a full tub and shower, it also serves as their powder room. Located between their home offices, it’s used daily while they work from home in their home offices. They wanted to update it when we completed the remainder of the complete home remodel.

BEFORE | View The Very Small Powder Room Design Ideas From The Early 2000s

They expressed the room felt like a cave because of the dark walls and heavy shower treatment.

Everything in this bath was dated from the tile to the cabinet and vanity light. A key design challenge we had to work around was the absence of any natural light. This guest bath did not have any windows. Visually, our goal was to ensure that our design decisions lightened the space. The vanity was too large for space and intruded on the doorway. A full aesthetic powder room makeover was necessary to achieve the clients’ bright and airy new modern home renovation.

Powder Room Basin Ideas Were a Must | Small Powder Room Ideas 2020

The sink cabinet holding the powder room basin was intrusive. We gave the clients several choices for powder room basin ideas. Wait until you see what they chose.

1. Change The Sink Vanity Cabinet To A Pedestal Sink. | New Powder Room Vanity Ideas

We designed the room to appear more open by replacing the dated vanity sink with an elegant, airy pedestal sink. We then updated the faucet to contemporary polished chrome and the vanity light to a transitional, chrome vanity light. The neutral porcelain geometric patterned floor tile tied in the grey tile shower banding and carried the white across the room to brighten the space.

2. Powder Room Wallpaper Ideas & Dark Textured Paint Be Gone!

We knew the biggest impact would be to change the color scheme of the room from the brown, tan, red, and gold.

We decided on white, light grey, and teal to brighten the space and add a cool color tone. We designed various rooms throughout the client’s house with shades of teal in varying applications, so by adding teal to this bathroom made for a seamless transition throughout the house. We added a teal wallpaper with textured white dots that are reminiscent of strands of pearls.

3. Change the Powder Room Tile.

We paired a timeless white subway tile with a contemporary grey fish scale tile banding to update the clients’ shower. The white subway tile really helped lighten the space and make it appear much larger. We raised the overall height of the shower tile to draw the eye upward and again, making the bath appear more spacious.

4. Change Plumbing Fixtures To New Moen Shower Plumbing & Sink Faucets

We loved the square modern ideas look of these Moen sink faucets and shower tub plumbing fixtures. They look awesome in person! The pivoting toilet paper holder and the ease of use is impeccable.

5. Add Beautiful Powder Room Wallpaper Ideas & Coordinating Powder Room Mirror Ideas.

The white beaded shower banding trim and beaded, brushed nickel oval mirror play off the “beaded” wallpaper and gives the bath whimsy and charm.

6. Add Custom Bathroom Shower Curtain Ideas, Fabrication & Installation

The custom shower treatment is done in ivory, embroidered fabric with horizontal teal banding. Keeping the shower treatment in a light tone, the embroidered fabric kept the room visually calm and nicely complimented the wallpaper.

7. Small Powder Room Ideas With Pedestal Sink

By replacing the sink cabinet with a pedestal sink, we opened up the bathroom visually and practically. The clients did not need the extra storage often required from a large sink cabinet. Functionally, the sink was too close to the toilet, too close to the door frame, and felt forced into the small powder room.

8. Powder Room Pedestal Sink Options Presented To Our Interior Design Client

While most people want cabinets instead of pedestal sinks, you can see how much space the pedestal sink freed up in this small powder bathroom. If you’re curious, here are the other pedestal sink options (sink basins) we presented in our initial powder room remodeling presentation:
