Updated Classics: Patterned Powder Rooms

Discover fresh alternatives to popular design trends in our online series, Updated Classics.

Striped wallpaper powder room

Classic Pick: Despite a powder room’s petite size, a bold wall design, like the thick stripes seen here, is a smart way to give the small space presence. Layered details, like an ornate mirror, artwork and countertop accessories, add character to the modern stripes. Deep drawers and straw basket offer plenty of stylish storage.

Splatter wallpaper powder room

Fresh Spin: A splatter-style dotted wallpaper by Télio, lively blue trim and bird fabric combine to keep things youthful and fun. Using the patterned wallpaper on the walls and on the ceiling lets the full impact of the pattern take centerstage, while the open-plumbing vanity and heritage-style taps bring some order to the abstract design. In case your plumbing system gets damaged by the renovation, you may call an emergency plumbing company. If your powder room and bathrooms are connected to a septic system, remember to schedule a septic service every three to five years. And if you notice that your sewer line is damaged, you may contact a sewer line repair specialist to repair it.
