POWDER BATH REVEAL: a stylish full redesign for under $500

I transformed this builder-grade powder bath into a beautiful & functional space. This newly-built powder bath gets a makeover to add character, texture, and color. See how I redesigned the space by trading in builder-standard features for upgrades with character and charm that don’t come with a high price tag.

pssst…catch the design chat video here where I talk design advice, lighting tips, and what all went into designing the space.

In this post I’m sharing all about the finished space, with a budget sheet including all the products and materials I used. I already chatted all about my design process and plan for the space in last week’s design chat video, so be sure to hop over there if you want details on the strategy behind creating the space and why I chose some of the elements and products I did.

I wanted to dedicate a post to the reveal itself and also give you a little more detail and specifics about what all went into the space. I know it can be challenging to take the inspo you see and re-create your favorite elements in your own space, so I’m all about sharing some (shoppable) specifics so you can DIY your own powder bath and transform it into a gorgeous corner of your home.

   the Design

This space started out as a blank slate. The room was about 5’x5′ with a tall 9ft. ceiling that made it feel less closet-like. It needed storage, color & texture, and some accent elements to add interest.

I kept the space light and bright, with a whitewashed wood accent wall and wallpaper with a creamy base. To add interest, I incorporated pops of navy and light green. I added extra lighting and vertical shelves to accentuate the high ceiling and function for storage and decor.

  the Budget

This space needed to have big impact for a low price tag. We saved money on this project by DIY-ing the wallpaper, accent wall, and shelves. The wood accent wall actually cost only half as much as the wall paper wall since I opted for stick-on vinyl flooring. This gave it a wood-wall texture but was cheaper and easier to install than real wood.

Most of the decor was purchased new, but if you have an extra tight budget, you could repourpose some of your existing pieces or even thrift and revamp some to get new stylish decor on the cheap.
