What is Power Room?
[Google]: pow·der room (noun)
1. used euphemistically to refer to a women's toilet in a public building.
A powder room is basically a sink and toilet without a shower or bathtub. Woman often refer to the powder room as a place to freshen up because in the days of royalty a screen was placed in an area of the dining room for woman to do their thing without other diners watching.... think a bowl to have a pee and a mirror to see if their heavy makeup was mussed. Back in the days of French opulence (Louis the fourteenth and on) royalty dined for up to five hours or more and didn't leave the dining area. Men also had an area to relieve themselves are were no less vain as to touch up their makeup. Today, woman are lucky if a vanity area is included in bathrooms so they can also touch up and in semi-privacy.
