Bathroom Wallpaper

Tanya101's picture

Hi,I bought some great wallpaper at Anthropologie and have a quick question before I start papering. question is how many walls to wallpaper in my powder room bath and which 2 walls should it be. I do not want to paper all 4 walls, nor do I have enough paper - only bought 3 rolls.  The bathroom is approx 5 ft by 5 ft and 9 ft high. No windows. One wall has the 32" wide entry door.The vanity, mirror and toliet are all on the same wall which directly face you when you walk into the bathroom.I was thinking of papering the main wall with the vanity and toliet and the opposite wall with the door.However, I have had many different suggestions from non-designers. Mainly, to paper the main wall and the wall right of it.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.bathroom floorplanbathroom floorplan

Hello Tanya101,

Like I said in my other post, I like the idea of wallpapering side-by-side walls instead of walls that are across from each other. If it were me, I would wallpaper walls 1 and 4, since they're the first walls you see as you enter the bathroom.

Good luck with the project!

Thanks. I never thought of only papering one wall.Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Are there any wallpaper rules when not papering the entire room?I have had many suggestions to paper walls 1 & 4 (shown above in attached image). However I am not sure that this would look good. I'm leaning towards only wall 1 (as suggested my Mrs. Peacock) or walls 1 & 3. Walls 2 & 4 could always be an option too, but i'm not sure the impact would be as strong when you enter the bathroom.
