Small yet Charming Powder Room Ideas to Wow Your Guests!

April 6, 2021

A powder room, (also known as a guest bathroom or a half bath), is basically a small room that houses just a sink and a toilet, usually dedicated for the house guests. Since you don’t have to worry about the moisture and humidity from a shower, the powder room is often the perfect opportunity for you to make a great visual impression for your guests with bold colours, textures, and accessories.

Neutral colours are a smart choice if you don’t want to make a big design risk. They have a mass appeal because they provide a decent background to add more decorations to the room. Take design inspiration from this powder room that features various neutral shades and textures.
