Creative Design Ideas for the Bathroom
Selecting the bathroom wallpaper design allows you to play with different lighting, mirrors, vanities or hardware as you continue to style the room.
Wallpapering with a Bold Trellis or Lattice Design in a bathroom with a simple Venetian Inspired Mirror and Classic Vanity are simple accents with the huge dramatic effect that the Europeans were renowned for. It really makes a statement with bold elegance.
Don’t count out paisley-styled wallpaper – it actually creates a bold and beautiful statement with rich hues and intricate designs. Adding a gold mirror or colors in the same family to accent the bathroom can showcase the room as light bounces off the fixtures and wallpaper.
Choosing traditional black and white toile wallpaper can balance out modern feel vanities or mirrors. Adding different textures like wood or bamboo can tie the room together with black trim around the mirror or light fixtures. You can also go traditional with a twist and incorporate a pretty and romantic toile in an unexpected color like blush or green. Toile adds a timeless “powder room” luxury to the space.
Bright colorful wallpaper is fabulous in a bathroom, especially if there are white or neutral tiles on the floor or on the wall. Have fun with the room! Committing to a bold color or vivid design is sometimes easier in the bathroom because it is a smaller space where you don’t spend quite as much time. The room can have an element of surprise, delighting you and your guests each time you enter.
Whether you want to design your bathroom to be a modern haven, a dazzling loo, a spa-like retreat or a country chic water closet, bathroom wallpaper sets a distinct tone. After you have chosen the perfect wallpaper to set the stage for the room, choose accessories like the mirror, towel holder, faucet or lighting fixtures follow suit. The wallpapers in the bathrooms above truly establish the ambiance. One room is masculine and modern, while the other is ornate and pretty… and we simply cannot imagine either one be nearly as impressive without their perfectly appointed wallpaper design!
