After finally putting a few finishing touches in our revamped powder room, I can finally reveal the awesome redo of this teeny tiny space!
Our tiny little powder room sits in a very awkward location in our home layout. It is right next to the family room and kitchen and would not be the ideal spot I would have chosen if I was designing a home. Now, I must take you back to when we bought this house just a little over a year ago and why we chose this room as our first priority.....
Sorry for the blurry images but my husband managed to capture a few during our inspection (remember we didn't see every photo of every room before buying our house)
Brass was a key tone throughout the room
YIKES! The wallpaper was just a mess of red/gold everywhere
and made the room feel smaller than it really was.
The sink was tiny. My seven year old almost towered over it and didn't make sense for adults to be hunching over it to wash our hands. Needless to say, since this would be the bathroom guests would be using when we had people over for a visit, I declared it top priority. I wanted something bold and to make the room look bigger; however, there were so many difficult challenges with this tiny space.
The first was finding a vanity that would fit the width and not feel overly cramped and also the depth. We searched and searched for the perfect vanity to fit our idea and finally we found the Kohler Archer Vanity at Home Depot. It was in stock at our local store too which helped! We decided for a more modern touch we wanted to use a one hole sick versus the widespread faucet so we ordered the Kohler sink from Home Depot.
We decided for a dramatic touch to tile the entire wall from floor to ceiling. Now, our contractors were amazing and didn't charge us any extra for this! We bought a combo stone/glass 12x12 sheets at Lowes in a grayish/neutral color combo. Unfortunately, I can't find it anymore at Lowes. It took them awhile to do this part since it was heavy, they could only do a few rows at a time and wait to dry. The floor tile was also new and a basic one picked up at Lowes for $1.19/sq. ft
As you can see, it goes all the way up the wall! I love it and we get so many compliments on this aspect of the room. It really provides an awesome effect and makes the space feel larger. We bought the faucet from Overstock which they no longer sell however it was the Danze Como Single Hole Faucet. The light fixture was the Ashland Double Sconce from Pottery Barn in satin nickel finish.
As you can see, this space is very small, so directly across from the sink is the new toilet. We decided to go with a nice streamlined look and add the Kohler Archer Toilet.
The frames were the finishing touch as I was waiting for them to come back in stock. They are the gallery frames from CB2 and the photos are ones we picked up while visiting Italy a few years ago. They fit a 4x6 image but I love how unique they are because of the size and shape of them. Again, we wanted to make the room feel larger
The mirror, towel rack and toilet paper holder are all from the same line at Lowes. It is called the Gatco Latitude and we loved how well it matched up with our sconce and kept the more modern streamlined look of the space.
Overall, we love the powder room update and can't wait to tackle another bathroom project design in the future.
