As you may notice, wallpaper in bathrooms seems to be on an upward trend. A small bathroom is the perfect spot to use wallpaper and will create a bold and dynamic impact. Wallpaper keeps the walls and light switches from getting dirty over time, too!
If you’re worried about how wallpaper will fare in your bathroom and/or you don’t want to use a decorators varnish for a protective layer, you might want to stick with vinyl wallpaper. It’s the most durable, washable type of wallpaper and a great choice for spaces with high humidity.
Still not sure you want to wallpaper your bathroom? Consider stenciling! It’s a great alternative that mimics the look of wallpaper at a fraction of the price!
Being that powder rooms are smaller, one-off spaces and are usually tucked away, they allow for some design freedom! Try a unique wallpaper on the main wall or on the upper half of your powder room. Wallpaper is a great way to add character to a small space. Try floral, a geometric pattern, or something modern. Balance the wallpaper with a contrasting or complimentary paint colour. Add horizontal lines with shiplap, tiles, or decorative wall molding to give the illusion of taller walls. Just be careful not to space horizontal lines too close together, as that can have the opposite effect.
Warm wood and matte black elements tie the shelving, mirror, lighting, and towel hook together. When you’re working in a small space, monochrome design elements are a great way to achieve a seamless, clean look. Contrast those elements with a fresh white paint colour and you can consider your powder room complete!
