9 Ways to Create a Bold, Beautiful Bathroom with Wallpaper

We're always being asked if you can use wallpaper in a bathroom. We say, yes - of course, you can! A properly ventilated bathroom will happily accommodate wallpaper. Embracing pattern in a small room is great and can actually make it seem bigger, plus it's the room all guests are bound to see when they pop over, so it's a chance to have a bit of fun and experiment, creating maximum impact.
