It can be easy to fall into a decorating rut with your home. Redoing an entire room can be an expensive and time-consuming process, and so often the fear of a decorating idea falling flat prevents us from trying something new and exciting. But there is one room in your home that is the perfect space to experiment with interior design trends: the powder room.
Why the Powder Room is Your Perfect Blank Canvas
Most powder rooms are compact making them the ideal space in which to try a something new. You’ll need less materials to tile floors or cover walls allowing you to splurge on something really fantastic without breaking the bank. Plus, in such a small space you can get a bigger impact from a single high-style element that might get lost in a larger room. On final reason to experiment with going bold in your powder room is since this is a space you don’t spend a lot of time in, you can safely choose colors or patterns that are more intense without wondering if you’ll tired of them quickly.
So, now that you know why the powder room is the perfect place to get adventurous with your decorating, let’s look at some great examples of homeowners whose decision to go bold paid off big!
