Choose your style
Add some glamour into your powder room with affordable new features, such as a dramatic mirror and glass or accent shelves, towel bars and accessories. Create interesting wall textures with wall coverings. You will find wood grains, patterns that look and feel like white painted beaded board, linens and more. Maybe add texture to the lower half of the wall and paint the upper half of the walls a rich contrasting color. Choose your style and then accessorize to add that added wow to your powder room.

Update with fresh paint
When your existing vanity cabinet offers good storage, nice lines, and sturdy construction, renew the look with a fresh coat of paint or stain. For a previously stained cabinet, sand off the old finish and apply updated stain color. You should also sand the gloss off a previously painted cabinet and smooth out any damage with filler, and then apply a coat of primer. Finish with a topcoat of color.

For affordable options, consider preformed laminate, or check out costs for a remnant granite slab for a luxury look for less. This is also the right time to consider the faucet to add a refreshing new look with that new top. There are many choices of countertops on the market, we discuss a few options in our recent article Bathroom Vanities – Choose Yours.
