71 Small Yet Cool Under Stairs Powder Rooms

small yet cool under stairs powder rooms

If you have a staircase in your home and there’s some space under it, make the use of it! It can be turned into a sitting zone, a reading nook, a wine cellar, a working space, a kids’ play space or even a powder room! I’d like to share some ideas on the latter as a guest toilet is a necessary thing in every home and designing this room on such a small amount of space may be very tricky.

Choose the style and color palette for the space – though it’s pretty small, it should be stylish, too. Such a powder room usually corresponds with the room on the outside and its colors for a cohesive look. Make a door that saves the space – it should be opened to the next room or it can be a sliding one. Go for materials you like – printed wallpaper, wall panels, elegant tiles – as this space won’t be super wet, you can not limit yourself to only tiles or concrete, for example.

Now the main question that is popping up: how to make maximum of a tiny powder room? Choose neutrals or light colors, they will visually expand the space. Think of floating appliances that don’t take any floor space, or go for a very compact vanity with a sink and a small toilet or even try a toilet-sink combo, a popular idea for small spaces. Illuminate the space with several built-in lights or choose wall sconces to again save the space – pendant lamps and floor lamps aren’t for small powder rooms. If there’s a window, keep it, you may go for frosted glass or place some potted plants or artworks but keep the window to let natural light inside. All these tips should help you make the use of your powder room in the best way possible. Get inspired by the ideas we’ve gathered and make your powder room perfect!
