Our Best Accent Wall Ideas For Any Powder Room

Powder rooms are easily the closest extension to a kitchen renovation. Often, we are looking for ways to add a powder room, or modify an existing for increased capabilities and design aesthetic. Today, we’ve rounded up ways to add an accent wall for any powder room. Creating design interest and a conversational moment for guests in your home.

Wallpaper Your Powder Room

While this trend is not new to interior design, it has made a roaring comeback with almost every homeowner looking for creatives ways to add wallpaper. While it may feel like a bold statement, keep in mind this can be temporary too, easily removed or replaced down the road. Read our guide on How to Hang Wallpaper, Like a Pro here.

Custom Wall Paneling Inside Your Powder Room

Using our own custom cabinetry shop we can easily customize an accent wall with paneling, in this case a painted black shiplap in Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black. Going dark enhances the already small space, in some cases making it feel larger and a designers dream come true to go dark and moody. If not wall paneling, consider painting your millwork a contrasting color.

Customize Your Powder Room With a Custom Vanity

You know we’re fans of custom cabinetry, creating a statement with a customized piece in a unique wood grain, creating a furniture like statement. In our St. Albans Drive project we opted for a warm walnut species, leaning into durability and the warm, timeless tone. Read more about Our Love of Walnut Wood here.

Using a Pair of Sconces vs An Overhead Light

When the space allows, a pair of sconces is a consideration that will take your space up a notch from builder grade to an elevated design concept. This allows for centered mirror placement, and typically a larger vanity or console for an impactful wall. Read our Vanity Sconces for Every Design here.

Mixed Metals and a Widespread Faucet

Enhancing your design using mixed metals adds interest, while focusing on a widespread faucet for greater impact, with a minimal price increase. We particularly love the contrast used here with the black mirror and granite countertop paired with a timeless polished nickel Delta Bowery faucet.

Crown Molding in Your Powder Bath to Pull the Look Together

If the wallpaper, custom bathroom vanity, and the double scones aren’t enough, consider adding a crown molding around the ceiling to pull the look together. Adding architectural interest with a layered look stands out in this modern traditional bathroom.
