Striking and Surprising

Empire Kitchen & Bath, Calgary, AB, Canada
This Calgary, Alberta powder room was designed to be a stunning visual departure from the rest of the main floor – a bold and vibrant crown jewel in a white and airy hallway.
To achieve the desired luxurious, bold feel in the tiny 50.9-sq.-ft. room, the Empire Kitchen & Bath design team began with dramatic dark wainscoting and floral wallpaper in warm tones. A custom floating vanity topped with an eye-catching stone countertop anchors the space, while beveled custom cabinetry in brilliant white adds striking contrast. A large mirror and toe-kick lighting add a sense of depth to the small space.
In order to tie the powder room to the rest of the home, the black and white floor tile carries over from the hallway. The tile also serves to ground the vivid colors in the vanity and walls, as well as the white cabinetry.
