Powder Room Features Fish Art & Wall of Antique Doorknobs
A mix of antique and contemporary decor creates interest in this powder room. A gallery wall of antique doorknobs makes quite the statement beside the toilet, while above the toilet, swimming fishes in a simple black frame bring a calming vibe to the transitional design.
When looking to update existing cabinet door fronts without major costs, keep in mind that glossy black and glossy white paint instantly modernize almost any style door front, resulting in a much newer look. In order to properly refinish old cabinet door fronts, first, remove them from the casing, marking the back of each door front and the inside of the cabinet with painter's tape marked with coordinating numbers. Next, remove the existing finish with fine-grit sandpaper and wipe away dust with a damp cloth. Add an even coat of primer to the front and back of each door front as well as the fascia of the cabinet casing. Lastly, use a professional-grade, two- or three-inch angled brush to apply two coats of a high-gloss latex paint, as well as a clear coat of polyurethane. Keep the space well-ventilated for 24 to 48 hours to allow fumes to subside.
A powder room is the perfect spot to use a bold, graphic wallpaper. It makes a big impact in such a small space. A simple wall-mounted faucet, gold mirror and sleek vessel sink bring in a contemporary vibe without competing with the wallpaper.
This eclectic powder room takes texture and patterns to a new level with tribal-inspired cloth wall coverings, a black and white striped ceiling, and geometric print color tiles. A black overhead light and small wall shelf complete the look of the space.
So much style in so little a space: Wood paneling and textured black wallpaper make a dramatic impression in this narrow powder room. The pendant light takes on sculptural dimension hung in front of the tall window.
