Often the smallest room in a model home, the powder room, also tends to be the most overlooked design opportunity. If you consider that the powder room tends to be the bathroom that potential buyers will eventually use quite often, and is among the first impression of a home, it is important to make this small space shine. We’ve compiled four bathroom design ideas our designers have used to make a model home powder room pop.

Feature a Fixture

Limited space does not mean limited style. The selection of a bathroom sink and/or faucet provide the perfect opportunity to create a unique, decorative design element in a least expected – but heavily-traversed– space.

Light fixtures are another way to provide pop to a powder room. With so many unique lighting options available you can treat light fixture selections as if they were added art. Also, consider using multiple layers of lighting, such as pendants, can lights, and sconces to create extra ambiance without encroaching on the available space.

Wow Them with the Wall

Because of the smaller size, a powder room is the perfect place to experiment with dramatic wallpaper, or perhaps a paint shade that may otherwise intimidate or overpower in a larger space.

Frame the Mirror

Framing the bathroom mirror is a simple, yet effective way to create a touch of style and flair without taking up too much space. Further, adding a frame around a mirror gives the vanity, and the entire bathroom, a polished feel while leaving it unframed may make the space appear unfinished and less inviting.

Scale it to Size

Don’t make the already small space feel claustrophobic by adding in furniture or fixtures that are oversized. Save space with features such as floating shelves or under the sink storage.
