The powder room / half bath is a tiny room just off of the hallway when entering the house. The footprint is extremely small, which is a challenge in and of itself.
When I first moved in, the half bath was pretty much the same as the other rooms in the house: needing a LOT of work! I got some help from my uncle to make this a quick flip, starting by ripping out the old toilet and vanity and taking down the wallpaper (and making repairs).
We added new flooring (that carries throughout the downstairs), new paint, a new toilet, and a pedestal sink.
I don’t really think of the powder room as “finished” yet — more like functional. It’s rather vanilla and could really use some personality (a powder room is a great place for some quirky design decisions!). We also had a leak from the sink ruin the flooring under the pedestal, prompting me to begin brainstorming about a design for Half Bath 2.0.
I have a few other ideas in store for this room coming up, starting with new U-shaped shelves mounted over the toilet. Stay tuned for more!
