15 Powder Rooms that Showcase Top Styles for the Season and Beyond

They might be the tiniest room of your house, yet they often end up making the biggest impression with friends and family. The powder room is an absolute showstopper when done right. It gives you a wonderful opportunity to try out new colors and styles – those you would normally not consider for the living room or the bedroom. It gives you greater design freedom despite the cramped room on offer. And often it can be a world in itself; detached from the spaces around it and transporting you into a world that is entirely new. But what are the coolest powder room styles of the season?

Eclectic Brings Together many Styles

What is a style that can pull off even while combing your own personal eccentric taste with bold colors and a touch of modernity?

Beach and Coastal Styles to the rescue

Looking for a lighter, more cheerful look in the powder room even while creating a trendy look? Then it is hard to find a style more beautiful and apt than beach style at its breezy best. It is pretty easy to turn the modern neutral powder room in white into one with beach style or coastal overtones. Add beach-themed accents and patterns in blue to start the transformation and add other elements gradually. This is a space where pattern-rich contemporary wallpaper and creative lighting fixtures are absolutely welcome.

Modern Rustic at its Refined Best

Yes, we know that rustic is a style that is not all that common in most modern homes and that is what makes it so perfect for the brilliant little powder room. Modern rustic design elements bring with them a world of textural contrast along with contemporary ergonomics that are perfect for the small space. Everything from that natural edge vanity in the corner to the rugged walls, exposed wooden elements and rustic lighting ensures that you have a powder room that is just visually captivating. In a few rare cases, you can even add a custom stone wall for a more authentic rustic appeal to the space.
