Powder Room Remodel Reveal

Interiors

I’m so excited to share my powder room remodel with you today. Although it might be a small space, it has big style with lots of beautiful, intentional details.

For those of you who have been following IBC for a while, you know that this post is long overdue. My apologies, friends. If you’re new here, let me briefly catch you up…

Back in March, I started a major renovation at my house. The goal was a new kitchen, but during the process, it also made sense to make minor (and major) adjustments to my dining room, entryway, and powder room. This past August I gave you a tour of the finished kitchen (and dining room) remodel. You can find that here in case you missed it. And now I’m finally getting around to the powder room reveal.

As mentioned in another post, the biggest holdup in getting this post written was my uncertainty about where to hang the hand towel hook. (And I needed a hand towel!) I suppose this doesn’t seem like a big deal, but I had decided to wallpaper the room, and once you put holes in the wall, you’re kind of stuck with holes in the wall. And, spoiler alert, if you look behind anything hung on my walls, there are at least two holes. It’s rare for me to get anything in the perfect spot on the first go.

Needless to say, I figured out the hand towel situation, so I can finally call the powder room complete and show the space to the world.

Before we get to that, let me remind you of the before.

Powder Room Before:

You may remember that, previously, I had a full bathroom and a small closet in this area. My new powder room is the former closet space, and the rest of the bathroom was turned into my butler’s pantry. It was kind of a bummer to lose that closet, but I was confident the remodeled space would be worth it.

So that was the bathroom before, and here is the powder room now!

What a difference, right?!

Let me walk you through the changes and details. (All sources are linked at the end of this post.)

Powder Room Remodel Details:

First off, the layout changed. The sink is in a new location, and so is the toilet, although the latter is very close to where it was.

With those changes, I also needed to relocate the window. There used to be only one window in this area, so I added another for the butler’s pantry and moved this one over. It was definitely an extra expense since there was brickwork involved on the exterior, but it was important to me to have natural light in this room.

As I’ve mentioned, I worked with Katy Popple on the this remodel. (She’s fantastic! If you’re located in the Pittsburgh area and looking for a talented designer, I highly recommend her.) I mentioned to her that I preferred a vintage-meets-new sink. I also REALLY wanted a wall-mounted sink. She came up with this idea for the sink. I think it perfectly captures my style.

I found the wood stand at a local antique store. I stripped it, sanded it, applied a new stain, and added new hardware. My goal in refinishing it was to make it lighter and less red, and this is how it came out. I am so pleased with it. I think the color works well with the floors and the wallpaper.

The top is polished Carrara marble. It was custom cut by a local stone fabricator.

The faucet is one of my favorite details. Since this is an exterior wall, it took a little ingenuity to properly insulated the pipes so they wouldn’t freeze.

Now we need to talk about this wallpaper. It was a last-minute decision on my part. Originally, I planned to just paint the walls, however, eventually, I realized the space was begging for something special. My first thought was a modern toile pattern, but I couldn’t find anything I liked.

So, I ended up searching the collection at Hygge and West and came across this beauty. I narrowed it down to two patterns and ultimately went with this one. It felt a bit more fun and gave the room a punch of color. I also love the animals hidden in the design of the paper. There’s a fox, bunny, grouse, and bee! Given that my house backs up onto a large wooded area, it only seemed appropriate. I hired the painters to install the paper, and they did an amazing job.

The toilet, sink, and faucet were all purchased via Amazon. Yes, I ordered a toilet on Amazon. Everything arrived in perfect condition.

The mirror and light fixture are from Schoolhouse. Things from Schoolhouse are certainly an investment, but I’ve always been impressed with their quality. Most of the fixtures in the room are black, so I couldn’t resist a touch of gold in the mirror. I think the gold pops and ties in with the brass elements in the kitchen.

As I mentioned earlier, I struggled with the hand towel placement. I originally purchased a hand towel hook that matched the toilet paper holder (which I purchased from Rejuvenation). The plan was to place it to the left of the sink, above the outlet. However, that made the space feel tight, and the towel was almost hanging into the sink.

I did a little searching online and found this brass bunny hook at Rejuvenation. It was perfect! I decided to place it closer to the door so the towel doesn’t crowd the sink. I also found a gray/black Turkish hand towel on Amazon.

With that, the powder was room complete!

I couldn’t be more excited about how this little powder room turned out. This small space is loaded with style and unique elements. That is why I love mixing new and old.

Here’s another look at the before and after.

    What a beautiful powder room! I love what you did with the whole space!

  • Debbie at

    That sink area is absolutely gorgeous!

  • Shirley at

    Totally not my cup of tea but that being said, absolutely gorgeous! Love the wallpaper, floor, sink and cabinet, and the mirror! I’m on the fence about the faucet and knobs but they do match nicely. For such a small bathroom I actually really like the light fixture and the little dear in the windowsill along with the plant set it off quite nice! Job well done!

      Thank you? I think? This powder room was designed for me, not to please anyone else. I’m glad you appreciate some of it.

    Thank you so much for sharing. I absolutely love your faucets and how they’re mounted to the wall. I too ordered my bathroom sinks and faucets from Amazon. Mine are also Kraus and I’ve been very happy with my choices. This bathroom looks great! Kudos to you. By the way, it’s nice to have you back.
