Powder Room

A Breath Of Fresh Air For The Powder Room
Few people consider a bathroom as a room. For most people it is a place to fulfil the morning ablutions. A chosen few consider it a room and are creative enough to make it more than a place to flush and wash the face. How about creating the classic 18th century Powder Room? We have some mint fresh ideas. So dig your noses and learn how the scent of the talcum and perfume can rejuvenate not only you but also the guests when they want to retouch the make-up after a delicious dinner.
What is Powder Room
The existence of powder rooms started in the early 18th century during the Victorian era. Ladies excused themselves to use the powder rooms rather than using the term going to the bathroom in public places. They used these powder rooms to reset wigs or powder their noses and fresh the makeup.
Economy and paucity of space has compelled us to use less FSI. Creativity can do wonders and here's how once you add the powder room to the amenities of the guest room. It is an understated luxury that will be appreciated. In today's property mart having a powder room means you belong to the elite neighbourhood. Most places have undergone renovations to create a niche for indulgence by cutting down the balcony space, by converting closet space into a small bathroom. By downsizing a few spaces a homeowner is glad to display a small area for the guests as 'POWDER ROOM'. Dressing up your Powder Room can be ongoing and easy. You can have wild, cozy, warm, cool, and even pink with color schemes. It provides all the liberty to be creative. You don�t need the perfect blend of colors. The range of accessories in the market contributes to the kind of variety that can be displayed to enhance your mood or that of the guest. Right from the soap dispensers to scent candles and antique framed mirrors with linen towels embroidered the range is endless. Even though your powder room is being placed in the smallest area in the home, it will grab the attention of guests if done well.

Choose right accessories
Coming to the accessories you can line up one of the best exquisite range of perfumes, organic soaps, liquid soaps, and linen hand towels and liven up with a few creepers in your ceramic pots. The lights can also bring drama to your powder room .You can opt for lighters above the mirror or even on a small colourful painting on a wall. Or just colour one wall bright clad with tiles or covered with a wall paper and use bright LED light. Having a few magazines to read add to the accessories of your powder room.
Sanitary fittings
The minimum size needs to be 4�0�x 6�0� and maximum to your taste and space. You don't need to have a bigger space like your bathroom defining dry and wet area, all you need to have is a dry area with a wash basin accessorized and well lit with a mirror and toilet with enough space to move around and allowing your guest to redress or to add the last pin in time or slightly refresh themselves with a hand wash. Let's grab logical ideas from the range of ceramic fittings available. Well for the basin you can choose a ceramic or a glass bowl fitting it above your counter with a good foam flow spout going for granite and a marble counter looks very repetitive so here the counter can be of under lit glass, acrylic or any bright natural stone. It is not necessary
