Adding a powder room to your home
Posted on Monday, October 17, 2011

Adding a powder room - or half bath - to the main floor of your home is a project that can increase the value of your home and provide much-needed additional bathroom space for your family.


According to the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), a powder room can usually be easily incorporated into the layout of the home without a lot of structural changes. Closets and unused spaces, such as areas under a staircase, often work well for these projects. While a large space is not necessary, considerations should include plumbing, heating, soil-line access and building codes. ThisOldHouse.com recommends that potential spaces for a powder room should measure 3- to 4-feet wide and 6- to 8-feet long.


Unlike full bathrooms, powder rooms can look beautiful and luxurious with just a few design elements. A stunning bathroom vanity or pedestal sink can serve as the focal point, no matter how small the space is. Other necessities include a toilet, sink, faucet, lighting and mirror.


NKBA.org also recommends including a small table for a purse as well as a coat hook to make the space easier to use for guests.

Powder rooms can be the most challenging room in your home to decorate as they are usually small with no natural light. This is a space that should be opulent & luxurious and it's an ideal space to step out of the ordinary.
