Designing a standout powder room

A powder room is one space where you can have fun with the design. If you’re looking for a change and feel creative, fun wallpaper, bright colours or standout lighting are all options for unique Calgary bathroom renovations. Working with Contemporary Bath Kitchen and Design gives you access to a creative design team, high-quality products, and professional installation services.

If you are looking for some inspiration for your powder room, consider these unique ideas:

Dark walls

Painting the bathroom’s walls black or a very dark shade isn’t the typical choice in most bathroom renovations in Calgary. But, if you’re ready to venture away from those light neutral tones, a powder room is a great place to start. Bold, dark colours in a small space can be sticking, especially when paired with contrasting hardware, accents, and decor. For example, you can balance the dark with a bright light, a white countertop, maybe some gold on the fixtures. Even a coloured faucet can help add that pop of balancing colour to the space.

Open vanity

Powder rooms typically include a toilet, vanity, and sink, making a good layout important. Otherwise, the room can quickly feel cramped and lose its design appeal. That’s why an open vanity is a great choice to help expand the space. An open vanity sits slightly above the floor and is open beneath the countertop. Often, open vanities have one or more shelves below to store towels and supplies. Open vanities can help the room feel bigger, but your sink plumbing will be visible. If a visible p-trap pipe bothers you, this design might not be for you. Check out these great small bathroom vanity ideas for inspiration.

Rustic backsplash

Consider a textured or rustic look instead of the traditional sleek tile backsplash if you want a change. Brick backsplash makes for a great feature wall and makes a great contrast with other elements. For example, pair the rest of the bathroom with modern elements like white paint, gold fixtures, and dark accents. Wood panelling will naturally add a rustic look; plus, without a shower, there’s no risk of steam damage.

Pattern up the floor

Tile flooring is perfect for bathroom renovations in Calgary and offers some fun custom looks. Be bold and choose a patterned floor, different sized squares or different colours. It’s a great look to have a unique patterned floor and then simpler elements in the rest of the bathroom. If you go for a coloured floor, pull some of those colours to decorate the faucets or fixtures. That helps subtly unite the look without having too much going on visually in the room.

Theme the space

Do you live near a patch of woods, a lake, or your own acreage? In that case, why not design the theme of your bathroom around your home space? A woodsy bathroom with brown tones, natural wood or pattern wallpaper creates a fun look. For a lakeside home, focus on blue colours, silver accents and custom millwork to create those lake life vibes. Ideas like these will keep the bathroom looking unique and make that connection to your home.
