What to do with the Powder Room?

Any size home will present the challenge of the powder room. You know, that closet sized bathroom on the first floor that has just enough space for the loo and a sink. But, mind you, it's usually not your normal sized sink and most powder rooms get stuck under a staircase so there is limited head room. People try all sorts of things and search endlessly for that small person sized vanity to squeeze into a non-standard space. Here are a few powder room ideas to spruce up your space as well as some small fixture ideas!

It can be challenging to find a vanity for your space.
Custom can ease a lot of time and effort searching for a fit.
