Powder Room Remodel Design Inspiration & Selections

Hi friends! For those of you who have been following me on Instagram, you know I’ve been slowlyyy remodeling our powder room/half bathroom. After finishing the nursery right before our son was born, I knew this would be the next home project for me. Soon after Liam was born, I scoured the internet for lots of powder room remodel design inspiration, and today I’ll be sharing that along with the items I’ve picked out so far.

Design Inspiration

Here are the main photos that gave me design inspiration for the powder room remodel. I was pretty sure I wanted to incorporate white beadboard panels and wallpaper before I started looking around on the web. But, taking time to search for design inspiration really helped me hone in on what I liked and what I wanted to select for our space.

This blog post, which included the above picture, gave me some great inspiration and tips for installing beadboard.

This instagram post @noelleinteriors is what originally got me stuck on the blue and white color scheme with wallpaper and beadboard. The Feather wallpaper by Serena & Lily is bold and fun. I almost went with it, but decided to opt for something without vertical lines. I just didn’t want the wallpaper lines competing with the beadboard lines.

This beautiful floral McGee & Co. wallpaper really made me second guess my vision of a blue and white powder room. The neutral palette here looks so pretty! I was close to switching my mind, but when thinking about with our warm, lighter wood floors, I decided incorporating blue into the wallpaper would create a nice contrast of cool and warm tones.

What I’ve Picked Out

Before we get into what I’ve selected for the remodel. I want to share a little more about the original powder room. It had a lot of “accessories” as I called them in what is not a very large space. There were hand rails for the older couple who lived here before us, glass shelves, a cabinet above the toilet and two towel bars. It was a lot for a 3’x6′ space, so I have focused on creating a more simple, clean look.

Thankfully, we were able to keep our pedestal sink and toilet, but other than those two things, we’re updating everything!

The best budget-friendly piece I found was the wood framed mirror. It’s under $50, and I was very impressed by the quality when it arrived. For the bathroom hardware (faucet and handles, towel ring and toilet paper holder) I opted for a polished nickel finish, which is just a touch softer and warmer than chrome. One of the pieces just recently arrived and it looks so pretty and classic in person!

For the wallpaper, I deliberated for quite a while. There are so many pretty wallpaper options out there. I was also open to getting traditional wallpaper or removable wallpaper. Of course, this did not help narrow down my options! Finally, with a little help from my Instagram friends, I decided on a herringbone pattern wallpaper in a soft blue with a white background. It comes in either a pre-pasted or a peel and stick option; I went with the pre-pasted. Since I installed that in the nursery, I feel confident I can put it up pretty easily.

The beaded wall panels are up and completely painted. We got those at Lowes and are very happy with both how they look and how easy they were to install. The light fixture we got from Home Depot and it’s also in a polished nickel finish.

Shop my Selections

There are three things I still need to pick out. I need to figure out some artwork for above the toilet. I have a couple ideas I am excited about for that! I also want to get some nice mongrammed hand towels. And the final thing I need to figure out is a trash can. I’m not sure if I will use one we already have.

I can’t wait to finish up this space and share with you all how it comes together. I’m hoping to get all the big stuff complete by the end of next weekend, but I think I will need a little more time on the three outstanding things. Stay tuned though, because when it’s all complete, I’ll share before and after photos.

Are you working on a powder room remodel or are you sprucing up your home in another way? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
