Adding Personality to a Small Space in Your Home

October 30, 2023

When it comes to home design, it's essential to infuse your personal style into every corner of your living space. Often overlooked, small spaces like powder rooms and laundry rooms provide the perfect canvas to showcase your creativity. By combining bold colors and chic decorative tiles, you can transform these often-neglected rooms into charming and stylish retreats. In this blog, we will explore three distinctive selection combinations to add personality to your home's small spaces.


The Beautiful Blues


Incorporating bold blues into your powder room or laundry room can create a refreshing and inviting atmosphere. Start with Daltile’s ME29 Cosmo Blue ceramic deco tiles, which exude a captivating charm with their deep blue hues and intricate patterns. Paired with these tiles, choose Outerspace painted cabinets to create a stunning contrast that adds drama and depth to the space.

For a cohesive look, complement the tiles and cabinets with brushed nickle or chrome accents, such as drawer knobs, towel racks, and faucets. Introduce plush white towels and soft rugs to balance the vibrant blue tones, making the room feel cozy and welcoming. Finally, consider adding a statement mirror or an eye-catching piece of wall art to complete the look and give your space a touch of elegance.


The Classic Elegance


For those who appreciate timeless aesthetics with a modern twist, a combination of bold black and our deco ceramic tiles can work wonders. The Daltile ME25 Crystal Black tiles add a touch of sophistication and visual interest with their captivating geometric patterns.

Pair these tiles with black-painted cabinets to create a monochromatic yet striking look. To keep the space from feeling too dark, introduce lighting fixtures, such as elegant wall sconces or a stylish pendant light. Light-colored countertops and sinks can also brighten up the space while offering a delightful contrast to the dark elements.

Incorporate elements of greenery with small potted plants or fresh flowers to add a touch of life and freshness to the room. A black-and-white framed photograph or artwork can further enhance the room's elegance, providing a focal point for the eyes.


The Serene and Airy Sanctuary


For those seeking a light and airy ambiance, the combination of Sherwin Williams Tradewind SW6218 paint and Daltile’s ME26 Jewel Grey neutral deco tiles will work wonders. The soft hues of Tradewind paint provide a tranquil backdrop that pairs beautifully with the ME26 Jewel Grey tiles' gentle and calming patterns.

Choose light-colored cabinets to enhance the room's rustic charm. Introduce decorative storage solutions, like wicker baskets or open shelves, to keep the space organized while adding a touch of character. To emphasize the serenity, incorporate soft, fluffy towels, and add accents in shades of white and cream.

Complete the look with natural elements, such as a small indoor plant or a vase of dried flowers. Consider installing a vintage-inspired light fixture or a dainty chandelier to add a touch of elegance to this peaceful sanctuary.


Your home's small spaces deserve as much attention as the rest of your living space. By selecting the right combination of colors and decorative tiles, you can transform your powder room or laundry room into a space that reflects your unique personality and style. Whether you opt for a beautiful blues, a classic black and white elegance, or a serene and airy sanctuary, these selection combinations will undoubtedly breathe new life into your home's small spaces. Embrace your creativity, and let your imagination run wild as you embark on this delightful home improvement journey.
