Whether you’re looking to do a full makeover or add a few new updates, any powder room can almost certainly benefit from an occassional refresh.

1.  Revamp your powder room sink and faucet.

People use powder rooms for two main reasons: to use the toilet or to wash up. Hence, the faucet and sink are two essential things that should always be kept clean, functional and stylish.

For faucets, there are high-arch spouts, single or two-handled,  ADA compliant and even wall-mounted which are great space savers.  Sinks also come in different styles: drop-ins, pedestals, undermounts, the space-efficient wall-mounts, and table tops which are trendy these days.

Brands like Kohler offers faucets and sinks with stunning design and steadfast performance– the kind of washing experience you and your guests deserve.


2.  Add powder room accessories.

This low-cost, high-impact improvement in your powder room can improve not only the cleanliness but also the appearance of your space. Towel bars and rings, soap dishes, robe hooks, etc. can freshen up your powder room’s look while keeping your bathroom essentials in order.

Bring traditional sophistication into your bathroom. Designed to capture the essence of a classical era, Devonshire® bathroom faucets can bring timeless character to every bath or powder room sink.

3.  Upgrade your light fixture.

Even in a pint-sized powder room, a statement lighting fixture is necessary. Light fixtures come in an assortment of styles and shapes to match your interior. There are classic, vintage, bold-colored and fancy shapes to choose from. But don’t compromise function for design. Ensure that it’s able to do its core function: to properly illuminate a person’s face and head while grooming.

4.  Highlight your powder room vanity.

Your vanity is one of the main components of your powder room. It doesn’t only serve as a storage, it also acts as a focal point and a unifying design piece of the room. When choosing vanities, make sure to consider both design and function.

Vanities should provide a great storage and space solution. A functional vanity can act both as counter space and hidden storage for your plumbing. On the other hand, a vanity shouldn’t only serve as a fancy accessory. Instead, it has to bring out the flair and character of your powder room. Explore our vast cabinet styles and options and see which suits your powder room interior.

5.  Update your mirror.

Powder rooms are one of the most used rooms in the house, especially by guests. And one of the first things– or perhaps the only thing– we do when we use it is to look at the mirror and fix ourselves.  Don’t settle for ordinary powder room mirrors. Pick a mirror that is both inexpensive and a showstopper.

6. Change out cabinet knobs.

This simple upgrade can bring life to your old vanity. It’s easy and inexpensive to do, but impact is great. Play with different cabinet know shapes, styles and even colors. Of course, it has to match and complement the vanities and overall theme of your powder room. Don’t forget to consider its quality and functionality. Make sure that the style is accessible to the users, with materials that are durable enough to withstand the test of time. 

” Even in a pint-sized powder room, a statement and quality lighting fixture is necessary.”

7. Accessorize your powder room wall.

There is no right or wrong way to accessorize your powder room’s wall. Instead, find a style that works for you.  You can paint it and turn it into an accent wall, have it tiled, use wallpapers and even make it a gallery wall. Just make sure the design is consistent or fits the rest of the room. Don’t forget to give it your personal touch!

Would highly recommend Lacey at Capitol to anyone looking for help with a remodel. We used them for our kitchen remodel and could not be happier with the finished product. Their team is knowledgeable to help you pick out color schemes, layout and different options while staying within your budget. The cabinets and countertops and high quality and made such a great transformation – the kitchen we used to hate, we now love thanks to Capitol!

Kristin R.

We worked with Adrienne at Capitol Kitchens and Baths on our kitchen renovation, and it was an absolute pleasure, start to finish. Adrienne was patient with us while working through several iterations of our kitchen design. She has a great eye and struck a good balance between letting us make decisions and chiming in when we needed guidance. The showroom itself has a good variety of cabinets, counters, and hardware, and they were helpful in providing referrals for any items they didn’t carry. We are thrilled with our new kitchen.
