10 bathroom wallpaper ideas to upgrade your space

Are you dreaming of creating a Zen retreat in your bathroom, or designing a bold look with a mix of patterns and colours but don’t know where to start? Enter: bathroom wallpaper. 

And according to research, Showers Direct say that wallpaper is the most popular bathroom trend in 2021 and I totally see why – it’s easy to install and will instantly give your bathroom a new look.

The latest news in the interiors’ world is the launch of Graham & Brown’s Wallpaper of the Year 2022. Say hello to Restore, a calm and refreshing botanical trail design in a soft colour palette of cool whites and sky blues. It’s the ideal backdrop for a relaxing bubbly soak after work, right?

Plus, their Colour of the Year 2022 Breathe, a fresh mid blue, complements this design perfectly – I’d create a cocooning feeling and paint the ceiling in this shade too. Add lots of house plants, natural textures and aromatherapy and you’ve got your favourite room in the house sorted.

Graham & Brown‘s Wallpaper of the Year 2022 Restore, £65, comes in three colourways: Midnight, Emerald and, pictured here, Sky. Create the ideal sanctuary at home with this inspiring design.

Be it a DIY adventure or professionally hung, as the bathroom is a really humid space, you need to make sure you choose the right wallpaper. So, go for waterproof designs to enjoy them for as long as possible and avoid mould, tears and water damage.
