11 Phenomenal Powder Rooms to Make Your Guests Jealous

  • Jul 25, 2023

Powder rooms are really the only time you get to be more aesthetic than functional since they are meant to be a second, less important bathroom and often designed for guests. These are typically smaller in size—e.g. the common bathroom in an HDB—and may or may not include a shower area. Need ideas to do up your own? We compiled our fave picks:

1. Neutral Territory

Don’t wish to offend anyone? Pick a neutral palette that’s pleasing on the eye and senses. The addition of natural textures here such as the linen pendants, travertine tiles and wood panels boost the spa-like atmosphere in this pretty powder room.

Design: House of Chais

2. Pretty in Pink

The powder room’s the one place to make bold decisions. Choose a statement colour combination and go for fussy natural materials that you would pick in an alternate universe if maintenance wasn’t an issue. This powder room covered the walls in pink microcement and opted for a stunning green-veined onyx sink.

3. Twice the Fun

To make room for double sinks, the shower area was removed in this HDB common bathroom. The sacrifice is well worth it however. With its ample vanity counter space, chic brass-hued wall-mounted faucets, and stunning kitkat tiles, the overall ambiance exudes a sense of opulence and luxury.

4. Corner Remedy

Create a sense of spaciousness in your powder room with a clever corner vanity that takes up minimal space without sacrificing much functionality.

5. Learn from the Japanese

Japanese-inspired wood-slat screens provide natural light and ventilation into this powder room. We love the choice of extending the ‘floating’ vanity to offer a seating area for guests to freshen up.

6. Paper Trail

Make a design statement with wallpaper in the powder room. It’s not typically recommended for a bathroom because of its susceptibility to water damage, but a powder room isn't *just* a bathroom. Consider a striking one to add unconventional prints and patterns that you can’t get with tiles. Seal it for extra protection.

Design: Monocot

7. Separation No Anxiety

Separating the bathroom vanity from the rest of the bathroom is a great design choice for powder rooms. This allows your guests to use the sink without hogging up the toilet, leaving it free for those who really needs to go.

Design: Dots n Tots Interior

8. Store More

Even a powder room needs proper storage! Plan for closed cabinets and open compartments to hide clutter and display essentials. For a guest-friendly powder room, keep necessities like clean hand towels, hand moisturisers, cotton tips and extra toilet rolls within easy reach.

Design: Lemonfridge Studio

9. Green Oasis

Faux plants and drain pebbles bring the essence of nature into a powder room ambience. While they may not be the most practical choice for a traditional bathroom due to upkeep, they effortlessly enhance the atmosphere of a powder room setting. Plus, they are great for camouflaging unsightly HDB pipes.

Design: Swiss Interior Design

10. Old School Cool

Lean into your older flat’s aesthetic and do up a retro style powder room that will transport your guests to a bygone era. Here, a vintage sewing machine gets a new lease of life as a bathroom vanity.

Design: Free Space Intent

11. Contrasting Silhouettes

Nothing like sleek and streamlined pieces to create a glamorous bathroom. We love how the curves of the mirror create a visual juxtaposition with the straight edges of the standalone sink.
