124 Tropical Powder Room Design Photos

Even though a powder room is one of the simplest spaces in the house, its placement near the kitchen or living room makes it one of the most frequently used. Also known as a half bath, this space contains only a toilet and sink and is often on the main floor for guests to use when visiting. Despite being fairly basic, you can easily make this small bathroom interesting by incorporating a unique bathroom vanity or sink, a variety of materials and fun decor. More

This effortlessly glamorous formal powder room is inspired by nature - the combination of the organically shaped bronze vessel sink, floating walnut slab counter top and bamboo tiles strikes a balance of traditional and modern.

Owned by a Torontonian couple in Vero Beach, Florida, this 7,200 square-foot vacation retreat is located on the waterfront near John's Island. The interior derives from the home's strong architectural elements and sports a vibrant blend of colours - fuchsias, turquoises, and kiwis to reflect the bright, natural beauty of that part of the state.

What materials should I use in my powder room?


It's great to experiment with different materials, but beware of overkill here. A half bath is so small that too many patterns and textures can quickly overwhelm the space. When picking out your tropical materials, avoid combining multiple statement pieces; for example, a bold mosaic tile backsplash and a patterned tile floor can cause a disjointed, choppy design. Instead, pick one statement element, like a fun backsplash, countertop or vanity, and opt for subtle materials, like stone, marble or granite, for the rest.

How do I decorate my powder room?


Similar to materials, avoid a kitschy final product by keeping colors and decor fairly low key. Opt for a subtle wall color and add hints of personality with tropical wall art, towels and bath accessories. Try to incorporate one or two fun elements, like an oversized sink, funky mirror or dramatic ceiling light. And don't forget about the hardware! In such a tight spot, cabinet pulls and faucets can truly make a difference.
