Powder Room Design Ideas – Let Your Imagination Go Wild!

Powder rooms are one room in the house where you can make a big statement, even if the rest of your home is more restrained.  I love to incorporate unexpected furniture pieces, interesting plumbing fixtures, unique lighting selections and even bold wall treatments into powder rooms.  Powder rooms are an opportunity to create playful, exotic, colorful and  imaginative spaces.

I have selected an array of powder room designs to highlight in this post so you can see how we, and various other designers have taken advantage of the fun design opportunity powder rooms present. The first four are powder rooms from Home on the Range that we designed to play off of rustic mountain settings,  and the rest are designs from other designers we love and follow on Houzz.   I have my favorites and I would love to hear what yours are too!


In this Rustic Mine Style powder room we used an old bucket as the sink paired with Sonoma Forge faucets and Old California Lantern light fixtures.  The ceiling is corten metal and the walls are reclaimed barnboard to reflect the old mine feel.

This rustic Western Mine Style powder room was featured in an article on Houzz and also in Ski Magazine's Mountain Life publication.


The custom faucet by Tom Robbins paired with the antiqued copper vessel sink adds a great detail to this Homestead Ranch powder room

In this mountain lodge home we created a vanity from a painted furniture piece by Raquel’s Collection and then used an American Clay finish applied by Julie Anderson of Steamboat Springs to complement the stone wall behind the vanity.

A mountain modern style home created the perfect venue for an asymmetrical custom timber vanity.  The petrified sink ties in with  the flagstone floor,  the reclaimed wood mirror from Classic Home maintains the rustic feel while the steel panels with wood mosaic insets give a nod to the mountain modern style of the home.

The iridescent glass mosaic wall behind the vanity that catches the light cast by the side wall sconces adds a touch of “glam” to the powder room below.

The openwork metal design of the pendants in the Mediterranean Powder room creates a beautiful interplay of light and shadow in this powder bath; and you can just get a peek at the wonderful carved wood vanity.

 The furniture style vanity adds interest to this powder room featured in Lamps Plus and I love the tall twig accent!


Lynette Zambon and Carol Merica from Design Associates  always come up with wonderfully creative and interesting spaces and this powder room is no exception!


The repetitive square shapes of the sink and pendants in this powder room work enhance the contemporary design of this powder bath.  The curve of the faucet is a nice unexpected softening of the linear feel of the remaining powder room components.


Let us know which powder room designs you like the best and why!  We always love to hear your opinions!
