Most half bathrooms or powder baths are not too exciting or pretty to look at right away. But they’re often used by guests or you, all the time, so might as well express your style in them! They can have function issues, too, like small sinks and no cabinets. Plus, updating a powder bathroom is a GREAT way to dip your toes into DIY projects or just do a quick, easy, fun update to a space you use a lot!

Ashley and Suzannah have experience redoing several bathrooms and half-baths and share some great budget-friendly and custom-look project ideas!

Projects and resources we mentioned:

  1. Easy half bathroom update: Suzannah’s faux chair rail look
  2. Suzannah’s faux wallpaper project and how it looked when she painted over it
  3. Suzannah’s 90’s home $391 powder bath total makeover (and video about that lightening-fast bathroom project)
  4. Suzannah’s palm leaf removable wallpaper and chair rail project
  5. Ashley’s modern powder bath vanity round-up

Plus, we talk through the elements you can change in a powder bath to update it, from most to least intense/expensive: cabinet/vanity, flooring, backsplash/wall, lighting, mirror, paint, and decor. Here’s Ashley’s cute DIY vanity light tutorial and the kit by Grand Brass.
