Home decor trends eventually come back around. Lately, I’ve been seeing more and more wallpapered powder rooms. I think what’s so appealing about a wallpapered powder room is that it’s taking a small, normally plain space and making it beautiful and interesting. Small spaces can become showstoppers with the right colors and patterns.
If you love the idea of wallpaper in your bathroom but don’t want something too bold or overbearing, choose a neutral pattern that complements the materials already used in your space. This floral paper looks fantastic against the marble countertop. The paper is both elegant and modern, so you can have the best of both worlds!
This bold wallpaper is another example of colors complementing bathroom materials, as it coordinates with the backsplash and flooring. For a bonus color, homeowners added green in the form of plants to create a stylish bathroom with organic elements.
If there is a specific pattern you’ve been dying to use somewhere in your home, the powder room is the perfect space to give it a whirl. It’s small enough that if you decide against it, you haven’t wasted your time by applying the paper to a 400-plus-square-foot space. Sometimes it’s OK to think inside the box.
If you don’t want to commit to wallpapering all four walls, put it on your ceiling. It’s such a fun surprise for guests, and it looks stylish against neutral walls. My husband didn’t want to commit to wallpapering the entire bathroom, so I slowly talked him into just the ceiling. It ended up being a breeze for him.
For a bold approach, choose a wallpaper color that is completely different from your cabinets but that still complements the space. It’s like when you pair a bright top with the perfect jeans. Also, the smaller the pattern, the more interest you bring to your small space.
