)-- Females in need of emergency makeup checks know the importance of a powder room, but small half-baths are often unsung heroes when it comes to home remodeling and redecorating. Minnesota remodelers David Tschida and Jonathan Honerbrink recommend homeowners consider remodeling their half-baths to create a showpiece of the home.
“Powder rooms are the perfect place to make a statement in your home. When you use bold colors, or fun home accents in this often hidden room, many homeowners end up creating a space that each guest must see,” said Jonathan Honerbrink, co-founder of Design Build Consultants.
Remodeling Ideas for A Half-Bath
Honerbrink recommends first carefully considering the placement of each fixture in a half-bath. When beginning a half-bath remodel, plot the location for each fixture. To create privacy, place the toilet next to the sink, where it’s not visible when the bathroom door is ajar. Because it’s a half-bath, the sink and toilet will be the two main fixtures, with possible cabinets and shelves, depending on the size and use of the bathroom.
“The sink should be the centerpiece of the room. Choose a sink that perfectly defines the style of your bathroom, and place it in a spot where the rest of the room is centered around it,” said David Tschida, co-founder of Design Build Consultants.
Decorating a Powder Room
Because a powder room is often away from the main rooms in the home, it makes a good room to test out a new style or creative remodeling technique. Tschida recommends decorating a powder room with bold accents, like an antique mirror or bright wall color. In addition, adding lighting to the room will also add ambiance and a defined style. Because half-baths are typically inside a hallway, adding lighting through lamps or decorative wall sconces is one recommendation if natural light isn’t available.
