Amazing Home Makeovers

Freshen Up Your Powder Room

The trick is to turn the challenges of designing a powder room -- the small size, the all-too-common lack of windows -- into opportunities. Use the space to display art that is better viewed at close range, to experiment with layered lighting, or to hang a striking antique mirror. Most importantly -- make a statement. "Nothing makes guests feel more pampered than a stylish powder room." - SCM Design group

The Rules of Bathroom Remodeling

You don’t need size to have style. Powder rooms are the perfect example. Because they are used only briefly, they are the ideal stages for dramatic special effects that will wow your guests as they freshen up. And their small scale allows you to indulge in luxury materials and bold effects that you might not dare otherwise—whether a rich paint color, flamboyant wallpaper, or intricate mosaic tiles. 

Before you embark on a bathroom renovation, learn the common goals for every project, no matter the budget, style, or location.

Think about your space. Are you planning to update an existing powder room, transform a full bath into a half, or carve out a new spot within an existing floor plan? A larger space may have more design leeway, but in a tiny room, every item must function, fit, and contribute to the aesthetic.
