Powder Room Ideas to Make Small Bathrooms Pop in East Northport

It can be fun to experiment with powder rooms, sometimes also referred to as a half bath or guest bathroom. Powder rooms are used by guests, so homeowners should make it feel as welcoming as possible while taking the opportunity to have some fun with the décor.

Powder rooms don’t have to be small and basic, with just a toilet and a sink. Some half baths have showers and tubs as well, but most aren’t spacious enough for those features. Many powder rooms are near the entrance of the home and are a great introduction to what the rest of the home’s interior design will look like.

If your new construction home or home remodel has a powder room, follow these steps to transform a basic powder room into a stylish retreat for guests.


This is the room in the house to experiment with bold wallpaper that makes a dramatic statement. Choosing a bold wallpaper design will give your bathroom the pop you’re looking for, if the goal is to shy away from basic design features for your powder room design.

Unique Fixtures

Unique fixtures like rose gold or copper faucets and hardware, or a unique sink can give your powder room a distinct pop. Using bathroom fixtures you wouldn’t normally put in a master bathroom or guest bathroom makes experimenting with powder room design more fun.

Focal Point

Choose one focal point in a powder room and go from there. It could be a bold choice of wallpaper or paint color, dramatic flooring, an accent wall or a vibrant colored vanity. Whatever you choose as your focal point, tie everything else into it in a more subtle way.


Tile is a good interior design feature to tie into your powder room. Experiment with patterned tile to use as backsplash or flooring. Larger tiles have a more dramatic effect in small bathrooms like powder rooms, but any tile size will work.


Be sure to play up your accessories when designing your powder room using fun mirrors, seasonal or monogrammed hand towels, and fresh flowers to make it feel as warm and inviting as possible for your guests.
