I am intrigued by this powder room set-up. Truthfully, I’m not sure whether to call it a powder room or a mudroom, but I think the designer might be onto something. Think about it: having a sink in your mudroom and then a separate water closet is an interesting use of space that allows for a much larger vanity than you would have in a narrow powder room. With a sink in the mudroom, there’s no need to step into the bathroom to wash your hands when coming in from outside. The mirror above the sink is perfect not only for when you’re washing-up, but also for a quick check of yourself before running out the door. And maybe, just maybe, your young kids might actually brush their teeth before leaving for school in the morning if the sink is by the door. Well, now maybe that’s just wishful thinking. In any case, it’s fun when a photo makes you think outside of the box and encourages you to change things up a bit!
