Packing a Punch in the Powder Room

October 21, 2020

Powder rooms are the ideal space for branching out and trying something a little funky and different; schemes that you might not feel so confident about exploring on a larger bathroom scale.

They offer the perfect opportunity to bring a little colour and pattern into play through paints, wallpapers and tiles. There is an amazing array of tile options out there to add an element of surprise either on the floor, feature splashback and whole wall… or if feeling particularly brave, all of the above!

All of the tiles featured in this blog post (and so much more!) can be found at one of our wonderful suppliers; Tile Depot.

Colour has made a comeback and with tinted concrete basins trending and a plethora of alternative colours of tapware to choose from, the possibilities to mix and match with your tile choices are endless.

Here are some of our favourite recent schemes using product from a selection of our favourite suppliers!

Which is your favourite?


“Babydoll Glam”

The modern Art Deco patterned tile was our starting point for this scheme; an old design with a fabulous new lease of life! Soft pinks and baby blues accented with brushed brass and warm timber come together to form a restful scheme with the pattern adding interest and playfulness. Rich navy blue cuts through for depth.

“Bold & Brassy”

The statement wallpaper was the inspiration for this scheme, from which we went bold, really honing in on the blacks with black handles, matte cabinetry AND a black sink! An aged brass chevron splashback makes for a rich, daring combination.

“Wild and Free”

Leaning towards bold from a more explosive colour angle, this incredible yellow peacock wallpaper is the basis of a scheme that lies totally left-of-field. A mango-coloured concrete basin draws from the colourful feathers in the print, while white pencil tiles (a firm favourite in the office(!) are both playful and non-detracting from that statement – a modern classic.

It’s confirmed… ‘Wild’ is our new favourite colour!
