You might associate wallpaper with vibrant 70’s bathrooms, embellished in bold floral patterns and retro patterns – so, it’s hard to imagine it as a modern way to renovate. However, it is an increasingly popular choice for bathroom decor. Not only is it an affordable option, but it is an easy way to revamp your bathroom into a fresh and beautiful space. The following are 3 reasons why wallpaper is not an outdated design element, but it can still be a trendy option for renovating your bathroom space!
It Adds Character
Using wallpaper in your bathroom adds character and impact that cannot be achieved using other types of wall decor and paint. There are so many different textures, colours and prints to choose from when it comes to wallpaper, so you can easily find a design that matches your personality and style. For example, to achieve the relaxed, tropical look, you could install a print or design of sea elements, such as palm trees, to create a fun and complimentary space.
Wallpaper is so easy to replace that there’s no pressure to pick a design because you can change it when you feel like it doesn’t reflect you.
Its Placement Is Versatile
Sometimes when it comes to home design, less is more. You don’t have to install wallpaper on every wall. Instead, you can use it to complement other design elements. It can be placed on a single wall to create a striking feature, or if your toilet is in a separate room to your bathroom, you could install wallpaper just in this space to make it stand out.
In fact, you don’t have to put it directly onto the wall. You can buy a sheet of a pattern you love and frame it in your bathroom as a piece of artwork.
It Compliments Diverse Styles
Bathrooms are not renovated as often as other parts of homes, so having wallpaper allows you to change a major feature of the space without resorting to expensive measures like replacing tiles. It can be used in conjunction with paint to create a space that is adaptable and cost- effective. You could have an entirely white, classic bathroom decorated with just a single feature wall that makes use of wallpaper.
It is an economical way to transform your bathroom into a modern and stylish space that you can be proud to call your own. At American Standard, we can help you choose bathroom fixtures that match the bold wallpaper design you love!
