Marble mosaic dado with a decorative border, a freestanding vanity, framed mirror, and Lusterstone wall treatments produce a transitional style for this powder room.
A powder room is often small, but it can pack a huge design wallop. “Itís a place to pull out all the stops as much as the budget will allow,” says interior designer Eloise Kubli of Collective Construction & Design in Plantation. “Itís used by guests, and itís not a place anyone stays for long periods of time, so it can be a showroom thatís very glamorous and elegant.”
Kubli recommends following the dťcor style of the rest of the house, whether it is traditional or contemporary. “I like to carry on the theme thatís already been established,” she says.
On the other hand, because a powder room is a completely separate space, a homeowner might decide to break out of the set pattern. Because of a powder roomís small size, it doesnít require large amounts of flooring, wall coverings, or furnishings.
Sometimes small changes can make a big difference. “You may be able to transform the space with just a new sink or cabinet, and homeowners may be able to do it themselves,” Kubli says. continued
