Even though powder rooms are simple spaces, their placement near the kitchen or living room makes them 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. This tight space can be mighty tricky to get right, so keep the following tips in mind while browsing powder room ideas to ensure you make yours perfect:

What materials should I use in my powder room remodel?


Despite being fairly basic, you can easily make this small bathroom interesting by incorporating unique fixtures, using a variety of materials and adding fun decor. 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 materials for powder rooms, 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 cluttered final product by keeping powder room decor fairly low key — less is more. Opt for a subtle wall or tile color and add hints of personality with artwork or accent wallpaper. Hand towels and bath accessories are also a perfect way to squeeze in some visual interest without over decorating. Try to incorporate one or two fun powder room ideas, 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 or break your half bath decor. Don’t get too hung up on making this step of the process permanent; there are plenty of powder room decorating ideas just waiting for you to get that redecorating itch.

What’s the best layout for powder rooms?


When planning the layout of a half bathroom there are three major objects to consider: the door, toilet and sink. If you have a space large enough to accommodate the door swing of typical hinged door, that will be the easiest option for most powder room designs. Otherwise you can go with something that has less (or no) swing, like double doors or pocket doors — these will give you more options in terms of toilet and sink placement.

Toilets come in multiple configurations too, so see what will look best and fit within the powder room design you currently have. Wall mounted toilets can save a few inches, as well as make the entire room feel more spacious. Be sure to know the building codes in your area, as toilets do have minimum clearance requirements that can affect your desired layout. If you’re not sure about straying away from a typical toilet, browse powder room pictures to see how others have solved this dilemma.

When it comes to the sink, you’ll want to start with the more compact choices, like a pedestal or wall mounted sink. You won’t need much storage in typical powder room designs, so only go with a full blown vanity if you have the square footage to work with. Overall, the layout should provide enough room to move around so that guests don’t feel cramped, despite the lack of space. The best powder room ideas strike a balance between great design and flawless functionality, so be sure you put in big effort to this small space.
