Today I am so excited to share with you guys our powder room remodel! This was a super fun project, and pretty easy to pull together, so read on for all the details!
I love our house, don’t get me wrong, but let’s face it: new build houses often feature all those “lovely” builder grade finishes. Like standard inexpensive tiles, and super basic hardware. That just is not my jam, and so I really wanted to spruce up our powder room and make it much more elegant, without breaking the bank and without making too many major changes.
A powder room is a great place to start if you are looking to redesign rooms in your home, because it is a small space: therefore, if you experiment with colors or other potentially “risky” design elements, it’s small enough where it can’t possibly be so expensive you wouldn’t be able to shortly change it 🙂 That’s why I decided to go bold with the paint color here: basically as bold as you can go! I chose a super dark charcoal “almost black” color for the walls. I was a little concerned it might make the space seem smaller than it is, but the end result was just what I had envisioned: dark and elegant. I think it’s important to keep in mind when using dark colors, do not paint the ceiling! Leave it white so that your space doesn’t feel closed off.
I love the combination of black with metallics, so I went with a lot of golds and bronzes in the details. Like my gold foil Hustle sign which I absolutely L-O-V-E, and our gorgeous antique style light fixture. I also replaced all the hardware with some beautiful brass pieces I found on Amazon.com. I absolutely love brass!
