Half Bath, Full Impact

A well designed half bath or powder room can make a big impression on the overall look and function of your main floor or basement. A powder room is technically considered to be a room with at least a toilet and a sink, where as a full bathroom is considered such when it has four key items: a bathtub, shower, toilet and sink. Typically found on the main floor of your house, half bathrooms tend be overlooked when it comes to style and design.

The good thing about such a small space is that it doesn’t take much of a change to change the entire look of the room. Just because you are short on space doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style.  Read on for some tips and hints on how to use the space to your advantage.

Mirror

A well-known trick, mirrors are an easy way to make your powder room seem bigger. Our FORMA decorative mirror is a 39”x25” mirror surrounded by a lacquered gloss white frame. The perimeter is illuminated by LED lighting for some subtle mood lighting, and there is a built in ledge for sleek storage.

Vanity

An elegant patterned vanity will become the focal point of your half bath, so choose wisely. Our LOUNGE MINI vanity is the smaller version of the original Lounge Vanity, designed by Simone Micheli. The Lounge Mini is a wall mounted vanity is similar to the larger version, with a single drawer and vessel sink. Available in white or black, its high gloss quilted effect front lends a contemporary look to any bathroom. A recent project involving a residential remodel in Tennessee used this vanity along with the Lounge vessel sink and some curated accessories to complete the look.

Patterns

Picking a pattern for a small space will add character and dimension without becoming overwhelming. Dover Antique, when installed on a floor next to neutral plain tiles, can almost create a sense of a rug inlay. Antique Grey creates a focal point when installed on the wall and complimented with a sleek white floorstanding sink.
