If you're looking to update your home but don't want to, uh, flush away all your money, a half-bath reno may be a good place to start. Because powder rooms are generally light on square footage, they can be updated without having to sink a ton of funds—or time!—into the project. And if you think about it, they're one of the more high-traffic spots when it comes to entertaining, so it's worth it to turn yours into a space that really wows.
Whether your style is eclectic and vintage-y or more of an airy and modern look, all you need are some no-fail design ideas and an easy-to-shop, all-in-one source, like The Home Depot. We paired up with the mega retailer to bring you clever tips and tricks that guarantee a glow up you'll love.
Go for Subtle GlamourThe Home Depot
Glossy porcelain mosaic tile makes a beautiful backdrop for a polished-looking powder room. Dress it up even more with subtle sparkly touches like classically styled vanity mirror and sculptural towel ring.
You can't go wrong with a clean-lined, marble-top vanity, industrial-style lights, and abrushed nickel faucet—they're stylish details you'll never get tired of. The finishing touch? Teensy hints of color like blush-hued Turkish cotton hand towels and a rose gold-rimmed tray.

Play Up a Calming ColorThe Home Depot
No need to travel far to escape to your own bucolic paradise when you've got wainscotting and moldings in a soothing blue hue. A fun floral wallpaper adds whimsy, and if you opt for a pre-pasted roll, all you have to do is immerse the strip in water to adhere it.
Woven baskets are always a good idea, to add storage and bring in some warmth. And with a more traditionalmarble-top vanityand frameless mirror, there's still room for one other standout: a gossamer-like cane light that will impress guests from the moment they walk in.
