One of the small side projects that homeowners often slide into a larger project is the powder bath.
Whether they are doing a kitchen remodel, an overall update reno, or a master bath redo, this little side project always seems to work its way into the job.

Why you should add a powder bath remodel onto a larger remodel
It's hard to justify the expense of remodeling a powder bath all by itself. After all, you still need about 4 or 5 subcontractors coming in, one after the other, to layer in all the work. And for a general contractor, it is just not that big of a project to get them really interested.
It's a great idea to add it in to another part of a bigger project, to get the work done by the subs when they are already at the house.
It can also be the perfect place to use some leftover material, like some marble, so it makes a valid argument to expand the scope of the remodel here.
Just remember, however, that a little powder bath still requires big love to make it special. There are lots of details here in a small space and regardless of the size, it deserves the time and care of good design to make it a beautiful jewel box of a space.
After all, the powder room is one room in a home where you know a guest or visitor will end up at some point. They will notice the mirror, the faucet, the floor and walls, the lighting, how quiet the toilet flushes......even the toilet paper holder. :-)
I'm sharing some of the ones that I've worked on over the years and some I've seen in showhouses across the country.
Don't forget to fold this special little space into a bigger project when it is time to remodel in another part of your home.
