Wallpaper in a Bathroom?


By: Mary

Wallpaper is back in the spotlight!   It has long suffered a bad reputation, with many people assuming it’s a bygone trend.  So, it is very refreshing to see people embracing their own taste and hanging a room-transforming, style-defining print or texture in their powder room or bathroom.


When it comes to wallpaper you can pretty much find a design in every color, style and pattern to suit your interior.  So, here are a few pointers to help you along the way-


  • Choose a pattern that is going to compliment the rest of your bathroom.


  • A small powder room is the perfect place to go bold with a strong pattern.  Paired with white fixtures and minimal accessories, the look is polished not overwhelming.


  • Some patterns need to be seen over a large space to make sense, so make sure a key part of the design will not be hidden behind a mirror, vanity cabinet, or other piece of furniture.


  • Have a 1920s or 1950s tiled bathroom?  The “chicklet” tiles of yore come in a variety of fun colors and if they are in great shape keep them.  Add a bold black and white patterned wallpaper above the tile for a very polished, current look.


Most of all, have fun.  It is your home, so put up a wallpaper that brings a smile to your face.
