Small but Mighty Pretty
Updated: Sep 3, 2021
Powder baths are one of the most visited rooms in a home by you and your guests, so they deserve your design attention. It’s the little touches that make all the difference and when styled well, this small room can easily go from boring to beautiful! Renovating this 90’s powder bath started with replacing this scalloped pedestal sink with a vanity that fit the space and our style better.
What we wanted to find was a full vanity with an undermount sink and a marble countertop. Also on the list was a light-colored vanity that would contrast with the darker floors and include some built in storage. We usually opt for Pottery Barn as it closely resembles our taste most often, but fortunately we were able to find the perfect match with this creamy white apron front vanity at Wayfair!
Installing the vanity proved to be a bit challenging at first but my husband Joe worked his magic and we had it installed in under an hour. Once we installed the vanity, we changed out lights to match the brushed nickel hardware and added a large mirror that was greater than the span of the lighting. These items we were also able to source from Wayfair.
Our bathroom was already looking better but it was time for the finishing touches. We changed out the hand towel hardware, added a spray of eucalyptus, an Anthropologie candle, a new soap dispenser and some beautiful towels made in Portugal from World Market for accessories. It’s amazing how small things make a huge impact! Lastly we added an oversized art piece Leslie found at Kirkland’s that added more color but in a calming way. Finally our powder bath was complete!
