#1 Use a Bold Colour

A powder room is a small space, and it can be tough to make an impact, but a bold colour can really kick up the drama. Go with something like gold or chrome, which will really make it pop.

#2 Use Mirrors

Mirrors give a space more depth and dimension, which makes it feel larger. They also reflect light, which helps brighten up the room—this is especially important if your powder room doesn’t have many windows.

#3 Install a Gorgeous New Sink

One of the easiest ways to make your powder room stand out is by installing a gorgeous new sink. Sinks come in all shapes and sizes, so you can have a sink that matches your powder room’s decor. You can also choose from a variety of materials, including porcelain, stainless steel and cast iron.

#4 Give Your Space Some Sparkle

This is the perfect place to show off some luxury and glamour. The bathroom is where you can really get away with using crystal embellishments, as well as other luxe touches like gold fixtures and mirrors. If you want to add a little more glitz and glamour, consider adding a chandelier or hanging crystals from your light fixture.
