Hidden Gem Powder Room – Chicago’s Hyde Park

The Setup

This powder room was part of a larger kitchen remodel.

The powder room originally ate up a lot of real estate in one corner of the old kitchen. In order to allow for a banquette and a large island, we moved the powder room to a new spot on the first floor: an unused closet under the stairs.

Design Objectives:

  • Create an elegant powder room in an existing closet space
  • Provide drama in a small space

The Remodel

Design Challenges:

  • Create room for a vanity
  • Offer a privacy solution for an existing window

Design Solutions:

  • Shift door to the right to allow room for a new vanity
  • Add leaded glass panels to the window for privacy
  • Feature dramatic etched stone tile on vanity wall

The Renewed Space

This little powder room tucked under the stairs is a luxurious little jewel box the client just adores!
