Incorporating Texture Into Your Powder Room
The goal for this Naperville powder room was to have a stylish aesthetic with a lighter color scheme. “To meet the homeowners’ goals, we incorporated white beadboard in the powder room to add texture to the space,” says Normandy Designer Ann Stockard. “Natural colors are popular in bathrooms and powder rooms alike, so we then went with a green glass tile mosaic pattern above the beadboard to add a little flair and sparkle. Rounding out the color scheme, the homeowner chose a soft blue which was incorporated in an adjacent room. With powder room designs, it’s not a rule that you have to match adjacent rooms, but it does give the entire area a more thoughtful, cohesive look.”
“Despite the small size of the powder room, the homeowners wanted it to look as spacious as possible,” commented Ann. “To achieve that we went with a simple pedestal sink to leave as much open space as possible. There are other sink options for small powder rooms, but this one fit the style the homeowners wanted the best.”
Industry peers loved the texture and level of functionality in this space, and the powder room recently received a First Place Remodeling Excellence Award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Chicagoland.
