Powder Perfect

Do you ever go to a friend’s house for dinner and have to use the restroom and walk into a perfectly blank space? It happens all the time. People decorate their living room, dining room, family room and the list continues and kind of just forget about the little powder room. It’s the room people keep putting off and say they will eventually get to it and never do.

Getting a perfect powder room isn’t hard and doesn’t have to cost a ton of money. Ideally, it would be great to have the perfect sink and toilet not only in function but to actually look pretty. Even if you don’t have those items, one of the quickest and easiest ways to get an upscale look for that small space is to add wallpaper. Wallpaper doesn’t have to be expensive. There are so many options on the market, today, that don’t cost a ton and give you a lot of bang for the buck.

To give the bathroom that extra pizazz, paint the trim one of the main colors that is a focus of the wallpaper. Like this:

In a perfect world it would be wonderful to be able to do everything to make your powder room perfect. If that’s not an option, don’t fret. Just choose one item to change. It will make a difference!  

That's all for now. See ya next time.
