FAQs About How to Style Bathroom Wallpaper

Can you use peel-and-stick wallpaper in the bathroom?

People who desire a variety of wallpaper choices have long favored peel-and-stick wallpaper. In addition to solid colors, vinyl peel-and-stick wallpaper comes in many designs, patterns, and textures. And when the time comes, peel-and-stick wallpaper is easier to remove because of its low-tack self-adhesive backing.

Can you put wallpaper in a bathroom?

You can successfully install wallpaper in most bathrooms. However, you’ll want to consider the likelihood of the wallpaper getting wet. In general, you’ll want to avoid getting the wallpaper overly damp. If it’s a kids’ bathroom that is known to experience splashes of water, or a frequently-used shower with poor ventilation, you may want to skip the wallpaper in favor of tile.

What type of wallpaper is best for bathrooms?

Choose vinyl for the most durable bathroom wallpaper. Unlike conventional wallpaper, 100% vinyl wallpaper does not degrade over time or develop mold in high-moisture environments like bathrooms.

Does wallpaper cause mold?

High humidity, poor ventilation, and using conventional wallpaper can make it more likely for mold to develop. But if you stick to pure vinyl wallpaper and keep the space ventilated, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.

How do you protect wallpaper in a bathroom?

Consider using a mold-proof paste, and apply extra underneath any wallpaper close to a shower or bath. You may also want to apply a clear acrylic varnish to the surface of the wallpaper to protect it from heat, moisture, and stains.
