Birchwood Construction Company
You’d never know by looking at this stunning cottage that the project began by raising the entire home six feet above the foundation. The Birchwood field team used their expertise to carefully lift the home in order to pour an entirely new foundation. With the base of the home secure, our craftsmen moved indoors to remodel the home’s kitchen and bathrooms. The sleek kitchen features gray, custom made inlay cabinetry that brings out the detail in the one of a kind quartz countertop. A glitzy marble tile backsplash completes the contemporary styled kitchen. Photo credit: Phoenix Photographic

This is a SMALL bathroom with a lot of punch! The double sink was painted black on the base to tie into the black accents on the floor. The subway tile was added to protect the space and make it super kid proof, since this is the bathroom closest to the pool! Joe Kwon Photography
West Highlands Home Renovation
West Highlands Home Renovation
TVL Creative Ltd.
This 1910 West Highlands home was so compartmentalized that you couldn't help to notice you were constantly entering a new room every 8-10 feet. There was also a 500 SF addition put on the back of the home to accommodate a living room, 3/4 bath, laundry room and back foyer - 350 SF of that was for the living room. Needless to say, the house needed to be gutted and replanned. Kitchen+Dining+Laundry-Like most of these early 1900's homes, the kitchen was not the heartbeat of the home like they are today. This kitchen was tucked away in the back and smaller than any other social rooms in the house. We knocked out the walls of the dining room to expand and created an open floor plan suitable for any type of gathering. As a nod to the history of the home, we used butcherblock for all the countertops and shelving which was accented by tones of brass, dusty blues and light-warm greys. This room had no storage before so creating ample storage and a variety of storage types was a critical ask for the client. One of my favorite details is the blue crown that draws from one end of the space to the other, accenting a ceiling that was otherwise forgotten. Primary Bath-This did not exist prior to the remodel and the client wanted a more neutral space with strong visual details. We split the walls in half with a datum line that transitions from penny gap molding to the tile in the shower. To provide some more visual drama, we did a chevron tile arrangement on the floor, gridded the shower enclosure for some deep contrast an array of brass and quartz to elevate the finishes. Powder Bath-This is always a fun place to let your vision get out of the box a bit. All the elements were familiar to the space but modernized and more playful. The floor has a wood look tile in a herringbone arrangement, a navy vanity, gold fixtures that are all servants to the star of the room - the blue and white deco wall tile behind the vanity. Full Bath-This was a quirky little bathroom that you'd always keep the door closed when guests are over. Now we have brought the blue tones into the space and accented it with bronze fixtures and a playful southwestern floor tile. Living Room & Office-This room was too big for its own good and now serves multiple purposes. We condensed the space to provide a living area for the whole family plus other guests and left enough room to explain the space with floor cushions. The office was a bonus to the project as it provided privacy to a room that otherwise had none before.

Even though powder rooms are simple spaces, their placement near the kitchen or living room makes them one of the most frequently used. Also known as a half bath, this space contains only a toilet and sink and is often on the main floor for guests to use when visiting. This tight space can be mighty tricky to get right, so keep the following tips in mind while browsing powder room ideas to ensure you make yours perfect:

What materials should I use in my powder room remodel?


Despite being fairly basic, you can easily make this small bathroom interesting by incorporating unique fixtures, using a variety of materials and adding fun decor. It's great to experiment with different materials, but beware of overkill here. A half bath is so small that too many patterns and textures can quickly overwhelm the space. When picking out materials for powder rooms, avoid combining multiple statement pieces; for example, a bold mosaic tile backsplash and a patterned tile floor can cause a disjointed, choppy design. Instead, pick one statement element, like a fun backsplash, countertop or vanity, and opt for subtle materials, like stone, marble or granite, for the rest.

How do I decorate my powder room?


Similar to materials, avoid a cluttered final product by keeping powder room decor fairly low key — less is more. Opt for a subtle wall or tile color and add hints of personality with artwork or accent wallpaper. Hand towels and bath accessories are also a perfect way to squeeze in some visual interest without over decorating. Try to incorporate one or two fun powder room ideas, like an oversized sink, funky mirror or dramatic ceiling light. And don't forget about the hardware! In such a tight spot, cabinet pulls and faucets can truly make or break your half bath decor. Don’t get too hung up on making this step of the process permanent; there are plenty of powder room decorating ideas just waiting for you to get that redecorating itch.

What’s the best layout for powder rooms?


When planning the layout of a half bathroom there are three major objects to consider: the door, toilet and sink. If you have a space large enough to accommodate the door swing of typical hinged door, that will be the easiest option for most powder room designs. Otherwise you can go with something that has less (or no) swing, like double doors or pocket doors — these will give you more options in terms of toilet and sink placement.

Toilets come in multiple configurations too, so see what will look best and fit within the powder room design you currently have. Wall mounted toilets can save a few inches, as well as make the entire room feel more spacious. Be sure to know the building codes in your area, as toilets do have minimum clearance requirements that can affect your desired layout. If you’re not sure about straying away from a typical toilet, browse powder room pictures to see how others have solved this dilemma.

When it comes to the sink, you’ll want to start with the more compact choices, like a pedestal or wall mounted sink. You won’t need much storage in typical powder room designs, so only go with a full blown vanity if you have the square footage to work with. Overall, the layout should provide enough room to move around so that guests don’t feel cramped, despite the lack of space. The best powder room ideas strike a balance between great design and flawless functionality, so be sure you put in big effort to this small space.
