Powder Room Lighting with DecorPlanet

Although it's not at the top of our priority list, we do have plans to eventually update our powder room. It's a room most guests see when they visit our house and it's also the only room left on our first floor that hasn't been repainted (mudroom excluded). Jordan and I have discussed a few times how we would love to replace the traditional style sink/vanity with a more modern one. Unfortunately, we don't have it in our budget right now to give the powder room a complete makeover, but what we can do is start to work on it piece by piece. 

One of the first things I would like to tackle in the powder room is replacing the current light fixture. You can catch a peek of it in the below photo I used when I posted about our new mirror.

The fixture itself is practically brand new. It's in great shape and a very nice fixture; it's just not our taste. Back when we replaced the lights on our first floor, Jordan suggested adding the powder room to the list of rooms. I brushed it off as I wasn't sure what we were going to do with the room and didn't want to make any decisions yet. I will say that once we started replacing the lights in our kitchen, laundry and hallway (you can read more about that here), the house started to feel more modern and more 'us'. I've said this before, but I'm a true believe that if you aren't in the place for a complete renovation, a few tweaks in paint or accent pieces can make a world of difference to a room. 

I recently started scouring DecorPlanet for some ideas of what type of light fixture we'd want in our powder room. Whether you're planning an entire bathroom renovation or just want to update a few accents like lighting and fixtures, DecorPlanet is a one stop shop for all things bathroom.

DecorPlanet has a great selection of lights and it was hard to narrow them down to just one. There are great options and we'd have to decide which route we want to take - keeping with the flush mount, adding some dimension with a pendant, or really change things up and install sconces.  

I chose a few of my favorites from their website to share.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 

Of the sconces, #1 is my top choice. Given the mirror I hung a few months back, we might not have the space to install sconces. If we stick with a flush mount, I think #4 would be a great option. It's modern, but also has a more elegant look to complement the style of the frameless mirror. My favorite of the pendants has to be #9. I love the industrial look and it would go well with the more rustic style sinks with exposed metal legs that I've been drooling over on Pinterest. All the lights are so different from each other that we would need to decide what style we ultimately want for the powder room.

Is there a room you know you need to tackle, but just don't have it in our budget/time to take on? How are you making it feel like your space in the meantime.
