It is the space everybody uses more than any other, why not give it the attention it deserves.

You can create a show-stopping powder bathroom by adding a splash of character, which will make an impression and reveal your creative side for your family and guests to admire. Or turn your master suite into a sight to behold!
SCI Surfaces Amanda Gravenstein embraces this concept and shares some great ideas to get you on the road to revamping any bathroom. It is important to make sure it is a space you and your guests enjoy being in.
“The master bathroom suite is a place to decompress and recharge with some much-needed you time after a long day,” she noted. “This fall, we notice people using warm neutrals to create a comforting home, with stained wood, earthy tones and gold accents, ideal for a touch of warmth in your bathroom space this season.”
Textured tile instantly adds personality and style and creates decorative interest and dimension to the room without having to have a bold color or pattern. Also, dramatic countertops and eye-catching stone backsplashes are a beautiful way to bring the outdoors in. This trend demands the style spotlight and adds a sense of timeless natural luxury.
When it comes to counter materials, large format porcelain slabs are steadily gaining popularity as a choice for countertops. Made from clay and fired in a kiln at extreme temperatures makes the material extremely heat-resistant and thirty percent more durable than granite. They are offered in a wide variety of color options mimicking the ever-so popular look of natural stone.
Another exciting trend is installing a wall mounted faucet.
“This can really elevate the overall look of a bathroom. Until recently, faucets were more of an after-thought to bathroom design. Now we are seeing them being incorporated as a luxurious design element,” Amanda continued. “Decorative light fixtures are another simple way to add style and value to your bathroom. Beautiful bathroom lighting such as pendants or sconces can easily call for a moment of visual interest.”
Wallpaper is an easy way to snazz up a powder bathroom. As it is one of the smallest rooms in the house, it can be the perfect space to incorporate a playful wallpaper design. Whether you’re going for a bit of drama, a whimsy approach or a bit more refined, there are an endless number of wallpaper options to suit any style. Great wallpaper is one of the best ways to make a big design statement.
There is truly no limit to splurging on a theme without breaking the bank. Choosing a nature-inspired theme can bring you back to our roots! If you are craving the feeling of peace and serenity within your home, try ways to turn your space into layered, thoughtful and timeless through the use of raw materials and organic features such as wood, concrete, stone and rounded edges.
Maybe you want a more dark, moody theme, that is both sexy and mysterious, yet comforting. Try adding rich, luxurious colors such as deep red or even black, warm wood details and dim-lit lighting. Seek out vintage and antique pieces or use some of your own artwork. Find color-coordinating wallpaper or rugs to tell a story and give the feel that there’s a bit of history in your space.
Whether you are renovating or starting fresh, personalize each restroom with your unique style. You’ll be glad you did.
