Easy powder room makeovers

A powder room, also known as a half bath, is normally a smaller bathroom without the shower or bathtub. Because of its size, a huge importance is placed on the right décor and accessories. If you're in the process of making over your little space, here are some few and quick ways of freshening up the room.

Paint. Yes, a fresh coat of paint is the easiest and least expensive way of changing up the look of any room. In the powder room, opt for lighter shades that will open up the space - this is crucial if the room doesn't have any windows.

Bathroom accessories. The right bathroom accessories will tie the whole look together and complement the rest of the fixtures in the powder room. Opt for towel bars that will match the finish of the other hardware in the space. For some pizzazz, hang decorative towels and curtains that will complement the rest of the décor.

Bathroom vanity. Because of the size and the absence of the shower and bathtub, the bathroom vanity becomes the crucial focal point of the room, so make sure that yours is in tiptop shape.
