The Surprising Power of Powder Room Wallpaper

Wallpaper in the powder room? While it might seem counterintuitive at first, powder room wallpaper can actually make this traditionally smaller space pop in your home design. These days, wallpaper is back in style and making waves. As luxury custom home builders, we’ve put together a couple of ideas to get you inspired for your next bathroom remodel. 

The Benefits of Wallpaper

Not only does wallpaper enhance the aesthetics of the room, but it also adds durability to your walls. This protective layer protects the wall from kids and spills. Easily washable, it’ll keep walls looking fresh and current for years. Be warned: powder room wallpaper can be tedious to remove, so make sure you’re committed to your pattern before you install it in your bathroom.

Is Bathroom Wallpaper a Good Idea?

We know you’re thinking it. Wallpaper in a room that sees a lot of moisture might not work out in the end. But in our experience, if done correctly, it can be a game changer. As long as your bathroom is well-ventilated, and the wallpaper isn’t in a “splash zone” (that is to say, directly above a bathtub), you don’t have anything to worry about. 

Solid Colors

Solid-colored wallpaper is a great way to add personality to your powder room, without overpowering it. A splash of color or a neutral accomplishes that aforementioned protection for your walls, while elevating its overall look. We love using bathroom wallpaper to achieve an accent wall, incorporating  a pop of flair. 

Bold Print

When you’re ready to put it all out there, bold powder room wallpaper can make a statement! At ADOR Bespoke Homes, we love an eye-catching print, including this Colonial Chic we did recently. This pink floral pattern is striking against the more neutral aspects of the home design, making it a conversation piece.

Geometric Shapes

Geometric wallpaper adds a really contemporary twist on a bathroom. Whether you choose to go with a bold pattern, or an understated one, it can completely transform a smaller space. Take a look at this powder room wallpaper we installed recently. It brings a new element to this home design in a simplistically elegant way.

There’s something beautiful about an understated approach to powder room wallpaper. This Lakeside home was best served with a subdued approach that compliments the overall design aesthetic. Light and airy, elevates this powder room with sophistication and grace. And adding in a pop of color allows a bit of flair to shine through!
