A Loo with a View: Cloakroom Makeover Ideas

The cloakroom (or downstairs toilet, loo, powder room or whatever else you like to call it!), is often the smallest room in the house and therefore, one of the easiest to transform. 

From embracing the darkness of a windowless small room to adding the wow factor with a pattern-tastic wallpaper, here are a few ideas to take your cloakroom from drab to utterly fabulous.

Vintage charm
If you have a period property or just love the style, add a touch of vintage charm by pairing antique brass hardware and a traditional style loo with a vintage style wallpaper design and checkerboard flooring.

Give it the feminine touch
When in doubt, add pink. A quick lick of 003 Pink Cloud will do wonders for an instant transformation, or go one step further and wallpaper with a soft and feminine wallpaper design such as Plumage Plaster Pink wallpaper.

Immerse the room in nature
Try a landscape or treescape for a loo with a view and for a really immersive experience, use a wraparound mural on all 4 walls. Paint your woodwork with a complementing contrasting colour and you've got the perfect cloakroom to retreat to when nature calls.

Add a taste of the tropics
A small space is the perfect place to go crazy with pattern and colour and a tropical inspired wallpaper design is a great way to liven up the room. Pick out colours from the design for your adjacent walls and ceiling and complement with matching tropical inspired accessories.

Embrace the dark side
If your cloakroom has no windows then embrace the darkness by using a rich and moody palette. Add depth and interest with a floral patterned wallpaper and pair with a complementing dark paint colour such as 012 Reservoir or 014 Moorland
