3 Ways to Win with Wallpaper in Your Bathroom

Based on recent design trends and forecasts, wallpaper is back and here to stay. For homeowners who feel unsure about adding a design element like wallpaper to a home, our advice is to start small. Adding a print to small, well-used rooms such as a bath or powder room is the perfect way to generate equal parts excitement and interest in the space.

Below are three easy ways to create a stand-out bathroom design with wallpaper as the main attraction.

#1 - Elevate the Every Day

Have a great bath but missing a "luxe" factor? Wallpaper comes in minimal and textured varieties for those who are print and color adverse; when used all over in a master bath, the room transforms into a spa-like haven. Up the expensive feel with shiny sink and tub fixtures to add extra sparkle.

#2 - Add a Pop of Personality

Leveraging a fun wallpaper in a powder room is a great way to experiment with colors and designs that may be too bold for the rest of the home. Up the ante with a mirror that pops (just be sure to keep the fixtures nice and neutral for balance).

#3 Highlight Your Bath's Best Features

Still can't commit to wallpaper on all four walls? Try choosing a simple, classic print for a single wall. By only putting wall paper on the main wall, the focal point of any bath—the mirror, vanity and fixtures get to take the spotlight.

Wallpaper wins, particularly in a bathroom, for three reasons: it's an easy way to make a statement in otherwise overlooked small spaces; it's a great tool for adding personality into a home; and it's a cost-efficient way to try out trends without a large commitment.
