A terrific way to add visual interest to your bathroom is through the use of wallpaper. Bathrooms and powder rooms offer a great opportunity to utilize splashes of bold, or unique bathroom wallpaper in these more intimate spaces, which could overwhelm if used in larger areas.
Start Your Bathroom Wallpaper Project
When picking bathroom wallpaper, humidity, moisture, and proper ventilation must be taken into consideration. For example, a powder room will have considerably less
exposure to damp conditions than a bathroom that is frequently used for showering and bathing, or one that is without adequate ventilation. The wallpaper should list its properties, including water resistance, and whether it is washable. Consider vinyl wall covering for maximum humidity resistance and ability to withstand scrubbing.
Next, decide where the wallpaper will be placed. Perhaps papering one wall is enough for a design punch, or doing all the walls will provide a more unifying choice. Paper may also extend above tile or wainscoting, or may simply be added as a border.
Choosing Your Bathroom Wallpaper
While wall coverings are available in a multitude of textures, patterns and colors, there are a few things to keep in mind, when making a choice. A darker color may feel more intimate or sophisticated, a brighter hue more bold or cheery, and a lighter one can feel airy.
Neutral shades can feel calming and bright ones can invigorate. Metallics are a way to add elegance, whereas white can feel clean and minimalist. Florals may add a feminine touch, and bold geometrics may be appropriate for a more masculine room.
Bathroom wallpaper can be chosen to be compatible with an era, such as Victorian or modern, a geographic location like a coastal home, or even more specifically by choosing an oriental design.
Textures including faux grass cloth or lace can add a more subtle beauty. Consider bark, brick, stone or other natural textures also. Nearly any look or mood can be achieved through one of the many choices that are available today.
