Designing for Less - The Guest Bathroom

The guest bathroom or powder room is one of my favorite rooms in a house. To me, this is where the faint of heart can really have decorating fun. The guest bath is just that, for guests. So why not jazz them a bit while they visit. It’s usually a small space comprised of two pieces; a sink and toilet. So it should be relatively easy to decorate. Paint and lighting is key here.

If you’re handy, replace the mirror with one that has style and character. Most of the larger home improvement stores will offer a wide selection at a great price. You just might be surprised what you’ll find. Maybe take it a step further and look at lighting. Even if there is a ceiling mounted fixture, think about pendant lighting on either side of the mirror. Here is where you can really ‘wow’ everyone. Just by adding lights with some crystals or a cool shade can create some ‘design’ drama there. Besides, what woman can reapply her makeup with just one overhead light?

Next is paint. Don’t be afraid to go bold here. Remember, its only paint and can easily be changed. Rich colors really do look great in a small space with or without windows. And your guests will feel they are wrapped like a present. Add a few accessories like towels, a rug and some art and you’re finished. Be ready for all compliments to fly your way!
