The holidays are here and that means A LOT of entertaining.  The most used home in the house at this time is undoubtedly the powder bathroom.  Usually the smallest room in the house, but the most seen by guests, should be a stand out! No surprise that the powder bath is remodeled and upgraded more often than any other room in the house. Here are some ideas that will have transform your boring bathroom into a piece of art.

Style
First, decide what style you are going for: modern, contemporary, traditional…Don’t be afraid to go bold in the powder bathroom.  This is one room where you can be creative and it won’t be overpowering. There are some great design websites out there with a large gallery of images to peruse through.  I love Elledecor.com.  It is has a ton of pictures that will gives you ideas depending on your specific style.

Wall Color
Go for a brighter color here.  Since the room is on the smaller side, a rich bright color will brighten up all the other pieces in the bathroom. A great textured wall paper or print will add dimension to the room.

Bathroom Furnishings
Purchase higher end furnishings such as, countertops, faucets and sinks. A great faucet or sink will give the guest that wow factor and add that extra punch of flair. Look into a showcase pieces such as contemporary vessel sinks, or faucets. This may be the stand out look since it is the focal piece of the room.

Accessories
Beauty is all in the details.  Adding  little luxuries to the powder bathroom will give the warmth to the small room. When choosing art, pick bright colorful pieces.  Fresh cut flowers,  guest paper towels, fine soaps  and great smelling luxury candles quickly add a warm sophisticated feel to the room. Choosing quality is key.
