Long gone are the days where you’d only find boring paper lining a bathroom wall. It’s a room that was often guilty of being neglected, a room that was only visited out of necessity and not styled to be enjoyed.
These days, people are beginning to appreciate their bathrooms, exploring different interior design options and revelling in discovering new design ideas to make the bathroom a place to relax and unwind. Bold wallpaper designs are bang on-trend at the moment, and there’s plenty of prints out there that can completely transform your bathroom’s aesthetics. Our clued-up I Love Wallpaper team have put together some interior inspiration with our list of unusual bathroom wallpaper designs and daring prints.
Tropical is topical; right now tons of people are choosing to line their bathroom with tropical wallpaper, and it’s easy to see why!
Designs such as the Lucie Annabel Palma Tropical Wallpaper come in four amazing colours, all of which can’t fail to add a splash of colour and a little of the exotic to your bathroom walls.
The foliage works fantastically well aside crisp white tiles and softer complementary shades in your bathroom accessories.
Marble and ceramics are best friends, and matching up the two textures produces stunning results for your bathroom’s aesthetics.
The opulence of marble and its clean appearance is perfect for pairing with clean white or ultra-modern grey tiling and luxurious linens, mixing together new and old themes.
Marble wallpaper is also a fantastic way to achieve the positive effects of marbling without the price tag, and those frequenting your washroom will swear it’s the real thing!
The Feature Wall Effect
Feature walls aren’t reserved solely for your front room or bedroom, they’re a fantastic addition to the bathroom too.
The bathroom often enjoys less space than other rooms in the house, and so papering all four walls can run the risk of looking a little “busy”. If you don’t have much room to play with, a feature wall is an ideal way around this interior obstacle, and a quirky bathroom wallpaper design can really break up the flat colours and neutral tones of your room.
Retro prints and geometric wallpaper are perfect for feature walls, with their bold shapes and vivid colours drawing attention for all the right reasons. You can also use it as a backdrop for furniture or a point of reference to mix and match the colour of your tiles and bathroom accessories.
Bathing in Baroque Style
Nothing says luxury and relaxation quite like incorporating the Baroque style into your bathroom. Sink back, take in your surroundings and you’d swear you were in a Roman bath or drinking in the ornate designs of seventeenth-century art and architecture.
This bold style is perfect for those who like the finer things in life, and there’s no better way to complete a statement bathroom than lavishing your interior with some luxurious prints.
Our Barocco Flowers Wallpaper is a stunning design that is sure to set off your high-end bathroom fixtures and provide the finishing touches with a plush bathroom print.
Let the Outside In
Introducing elements of nature and inspiration from the great outdoors is a great way to freshen up your bathroom, creating a clear, calm and airy aesthetic.
Papers such as our Tropicana Floral Leaf Wallpaper work brilliantly alongside tiles or wooden panels, and they’re a great way to tie in indoor planting and vibrant colour palettes too.
Before You Go…
Ahead of setting about papering your chosen wallpaper style, it’s important that you consider the humidity of your bathroom.
If conditions are too humid, the wallpaper may bubble or peel; you can combat this by investing in a specialist bathroom wallpaper that is washable and able to withstand moisture. If the wallpaper is not ready-made this way, coating your wallpaper with decorators varnish will seal the paper and allow for easy cleaning and protection against humidity.
