A bold splash of color in the powder room has become something of a trend in recent times, with homeowners willing to add audacious wallpaper and bright hues to give this small space a huge personality. Much like the other ‘hot trends’, this love for vivacious color might not last forever, but one color scheme that never goes out of trend is the classic duo of black and white. If you have ever stepped into a black and white bathroom, you will easily understand the timeless elegance of this combination and why it is perfect for your fashionable powder room as well.
A beautiful chandelier adds glamour and brings a sense of opulence to the room without altering its color scheme. Styles such as Victorian, Art Deco, Hollywood Regency and even eclectic definitely need this sparkly touch to really give the black and white powder room that unmistakable allure. Add in a couple of chic sconces next to the mirror, and you have a powder room with a ‘high-end’ feel!
Powder rooms are usually small, with the ultra-tiny ones barely having enough space for a person to squeeze in and make a proper turn inside! But we have been lucky enough to stumble upon a few powder rooms that are larger than some of the more modest bathrooms we have come across! If you are blessed with that amount of space, feel free to go more ornate with your Victorian overhaul. 3D wall paintings and wall art are always welcome here as long as they fit in with the broader, more classical theme, and bright colors can be used more freely inside these larger spaces.
Black and white powder rooms still allow you to add a fair bit of color, and because of the neutral backdrop, every little drop of color makes a big visual impact. Maybe this is one of the biggest reasons for the popularity of the color scheme in bathrooms as well. You can just alter the accent additions (stuff like towels, floor mats and maybe even those flowers on the vanity) with changing seasonal trends to give the powder room a completely different vibe. One color that never seems to fail when coupled with black and white in the powder room is gold! When in doubt, turn to golden-tinted accessories to enliven and enrich the mundane powder room.
