The "Powder Room"

The Perfect Powder Room

Typically one of the smallest rooms in the home, the powder room is also one your guests will visit the most frequently.
Do you know how the Powder Room got it's name?  Back in the early days when it was stylish for the men to wear the wigs (oh boy!) there was a small room off of the bedroom where men would keep and powder their wigs, hence the name powder room!  Eventually they moved the chamber into the room as well, and the modern day powder room started taking shape.
