13 Powder Rooms that Pack a Punch

Powder rooms often one of the most fun rooms for interior designers to plan. Because they are much smaller spaces, you can splurge on things like wallpaper that would cost quite a bit for a larger room. And because there’s no bath or shower involved, you don’t have to worry about moisture which gives you more options in terms of finishes. Powder rooms are typically the only bathroom your guests use when entertaining so they are the perfect place to go big and bold with the design. Here’s 13 powder rooms from RNDD that really pack a punch.

Green Glamour

Donna Mondi Interior Design capitalized on their client’s love of olive green and bold artwork in this dramatic powder room. With high-gloss lacquered walls, the green hue takes on a whole new life. A black and gold vanity from Studio 41 adds a bit of glamour while the captivating artwork through Daniel Kinkade Fine Art grabs your attention.

Marble Marvel

MATERIAL proves that adding marble mosaics and molding can perfectly finish a space. Pictured here is MATERIAL’s Mini Versailles and stone molding looking incredible in this powder room.

Modern Farmhouse

In this modern farmhouse style home, reDesign Home | Chicago thoughtfully approached every detail to create a comfortable, beautiful space for the family. They decided to go bold in the powder room with dark Westfall & Kitson wallpaper by The Detroit Wallpaper Co. and gold fixtures which really pop off the black.

Maximum Luxury

Powder rooms are the perfect place to make a big statement in a small space. With smaller square footage you can splurge on luxury materials, play with funky patterns, and explore bold colors. Terrazzo and Marble Supply Companies is not only the leader of luxury stone in the Midwest with a plethora of materials to choose from, but they also offer a fabulous remnant section for clients to create that statement powder room of their dreams. A custom floating stone sink is one way to bring luxury, functionality and personality to a small space!

Living Jewelry Box

The powder room should be a conversation piece to get your guests talking. When done right, it should tell a story and make you feel a certain way. In this Jewelry Box Powder Room designed by Sarah Jacquelyn Interiors, she used Flavor Paper wallcovering to make the room sparkle. To top it off, Sarah painted the trim and ceiling dark to blend in with the background of the wallpaper as a way to enhance the moodiness of the space. Decorative sconces glisten and create ambient light, while decorative gemstone hardware enhances the design concept making it feel even more special. 

Industrial Minimalism

Delicate curves, thin profiles and elegant details create a picture-perfect the balance in this powder room vanity. SUAVE # SUA-CV-28 was designed and created by LACAVA, proudly made in the USA and available and in stock now through Orizzonti Home. This floor-standing welded metal console stand is complete with with a towel bar and shelf making it as practical as it is chic.

Backlit Beauty

The Powder Room is a place to create a design experience for your guests. Because space is limited, a great design goes a long way. Centaur Interiors (CI) loves the challenge of taking a small space and making the design grand. One element they make sure to splurge on is the right lighting. Whether it’s a beautiful light pendant, sconces, or backlit lighting behind the mirror. There are many ways to create the perfect mood.

Timeless Statement

A great wallpaper can make a statement and bring dimension to a small space like this powder room designed by CI. They used luxurious onyx countertops to complete the space. There are a diverse range of basin, countertop and vanity designs, and the powder room is the perfect place to play. And choosing a sleek faucet, delivers the finishing touch of the “perfect powder room.”

Geometric Reflections

Up the wow factor in your powder room with a fabulous mirror.  Arteriors has a wide selection of lust worthy mirrors in stock, including the Ripley Mirror #3153, pictured here in this powder room. The geometric and minimalist design give this simple, chic mirror a modern sophistication. The irregular hexagon shape is suspended from an antique brass mounting hook by a strap of black leather and adds dimension to the wall space, perfect for a powder room. Available through Casa Bella.

Modern Traditional

Cosentino loves to provide surface solutions for all types of style, this powder room in the Adler on the Park showhouse took a modern spin on a Traditional Powder room. The splash of high gloss burgundy/maroon paint feels ultra-luxe. The butterflies bring some whimsy and a smile to the space. Both the sink vanity and make-up vanity are covered in Silestone Copper Mist quartz. The Copper Mist surfaces bring depth, sparkle, and sophistication. The play on materials in the small space works seamlessly, the high gloss paint, polished quartz, wooden base on the vanity stool and the texture of the fluting on the vanity. It’s a lovely powder room that is simply a showstopper.
