What Houzz contributors are saying:
A winner of the powder room categoryDecorative tiles and statement mirrors were spotted in many of the power room category winners for Best of Houzz. And the expressions of creativity in what is usually a small space were a treasure to behold; with this powder room in Adelaide, SA, by Architecture in the Wild proving the point in a feminine way.
Any tips for success when it comes to colour and pattern? If you’ve opted for a brightly coloured tile, use it with restraint so you don’t overwhelm your small bathroom. Bright hues are often best in small doses in a compact bathroom, such as on a splashback or at the back of a recessed storage nook. In general, warm-toned tiles tend to advance and appear in the foreground of a room scheme, while cool-toned tiles will recede and sit in the background. Delicate and finely patterned tiles work better in a small bathroom than bold patterns, which can overwhelm the space. Using textural contrasts can be a very subtle and effective design strategy in a small bathroom. Consider layering gloss- and matt-finish tiles in the same colour for a sophisticated and interesting look.
