Powder room #4 from Jenna Sue Designs was the winner! This bath is a beautiful farmhouse style that incorporates texture and pattern and makes this space very inviting and appealing for guests. Remember, the trick to decorating using inspiration photos isn't to copy the design exactly. The key to using inspiration photos is to narrow down the style you want in your home and incorporate some of the details from the inspiration to replicate the look.

Dream Home Powder Room

Since powder rooms are very small, the main details are incredibly important because they take up the entire room. The details in this space include the flooring, vanity and mirror. The flooring is a big statement in this specific room because it provides a big pop of pattern and the eye is immediately drawn to it. Black and white tiles are classic and are a great option, but the flooring is also a wonderful spot to add a pop of color if desired. Take a look at these flooring options we collected that would work to achieve this look in your powder room:



Next up, the vanity. Many types of vanities would work to get this overall look. Shop for vanities with a weathered, rustic or antique look that provide character and texture. Some stores sell new vanities that provide these characteristics, or you could transform an old dresser or console to achieve this look, which would also be a budget-friendly option!



Last, vanity mirrors. One of our favorite tricks to achieve the look of a custom home is to skip the matching mirror-cabinet combo and use a unique mirror. This is exactly what our inspiration powder room did and it makes a big difference in the room. The tall shape of their mirror works in our inspiration photo because the ceilings are high, but not every powder room has such height. Shorter square, or rectangle mirrors would also work to get this look. Weathered wood, antique brass or silver are great frame options to consider when shopping for your mirror.
