Power Up Your Powder Room

Powder rooms or half baths — whatever you call these small-but-mighty spaces — provide fun opportunities to flex your daring design muscle. Try bold wallpaper (since these spots don't get steamy), or splurge on gorgeous tiles (which won't cost a fortune thanks to the small square footage). In a space this tiny, it's all about packing in the personality. Get inspired by these fresh powder room designs from HGTV Magazine.

First up is this traditional beauty. “The blues and greens in here remind me of the landscape surrounding the farm,” says designer Maggie York of the powder room in her updated farmhouse. “We only have two bathrooms, and [my daughter] has claimed this one,” she says. “I don’t blame her!”

Cute and Quirky

At first glance, the wallpaper by Baines & Fricker could be any pattern, but then it becomes clear: Those are dogs. “I originally saw the wallpaper online 15 years ago and thought, When I have a house, I’m going to use it,” says homeowner and animal-lover Christine Kilpatrick. (She has a coordinating cat pattern in her hall closet.)

Cottage Chic

Charming but not saccharine: Designers Leigh Lincoln and Aly Morford got the balance just right in this space. They matched whimsical pastel wallpaper with a grayish-blue vanity that has vintage-inspired satin nickel bin pulls. “A powder room is a great place to be playful,” says Leigh.

A Surprising Space

The door to this wash room is hidden in wood paneling, so homeowner Amy Church has to show new guests where it is. More suprises await inside: lime green tiles and standout dragonfly wallpaper from Harlequin.
