When expecting guests in your home, one of the important points of focus is prepping to make them feel welcome and as comfortable as possible throughout their short or long stay. And as you decorate every other room, the half bath should be high up on your list of priorities – for obvious reasons.

It can sometimes feel a little daunting, but it doesn’t have to… not anymore!

Take a gander at these five awesome yet functional ways to spice things up in your powder room when getting ready for your guests.


1. Install Decorative Accessories

A bathroom is never complete without things like towels, tissue paper, soap, toothpaste, and other supplies. Accessories like tissue dispensers, soap holders, towel hangers, toothbrush holders, and robe hooks make the room even more functional while enhancing the user’s convenience.

Make sure to include these, and choose stylish options that work well with the rest of your powder room décor. While at it, don’t forget to add a decorative bath rug at the powder room door!


2. Add Some Style with Lighting

The last thing you want is for your guests to get frustrated trying to maneuver in a dull, boring powder room. Whether you’re remodeling or just sprucing things up to make the powder room look expensive, proper lighting is key in adding elegance and ensuring functionality.

You can also consider installing mood lighting, and perhaps add a pendant to create a stylish statement. If you’re looking to add some ambiance to the room, candles and wall sconces will not disappoint.


3. Add One or Two Stylish Mirrors

As one of the best materials for bathroom design, glass can have many applications in the powder room. Mirrors not only add functionality to any bathroom, but they also go a long way in enhancing décor when chosen properly.

Furthermore, they can also help create the illusion of extra space in an otherwise tiny bathroom, thus making your guests feel more comfortable.

Add some excitement to your powder room by introducing mirror designs on the wall, above the sink, or even behind the bathroom cabinet. Framed mirrors are specifically great at the job considering that the frame can take just about any pattern you wish for.


4. Introduce Some Color with Plants and Flowers

Still looking for ways to make your powder room more welcoming to your guests? If so, consider bringing some fresh, colorful blooms inside.

In a recent article, the folks over at Bouqs.com recommended bathroom-friendly flowers like gardenias or orchids. You could also place a snake plant, Aloe Vera, a fern, moss, or bamboo in your powder room to add the much-needed touch of sophistication and beauty.


5. Add Beautiful Space-Saving Vanity Drawers

If you’re looking for a practical and functional way to display your make-up and other products, consider installing vanity drawer organizers in your powder room. You can even go for inexpensive wooden vanity, or perhaps repurpose an old piece of furniture to fit your intended space.

And if you’re willing to invest, you can look for timeless products made of glass or metal. In any case, vanity drawer organizers are a unique way to add beauty and functionality to your powder room, without necessarily consuming much space.

And, voila… you’re all set to create the perfect powder room for your guests! The tips in this post will help you create a space that complements your room’s décor while ensuring functionality and even comfort. If you get things right, there’s a big chance your guests will leave a compliment or two!
