  • Bring the Blush

    Snowy textiles and fittings spotlight a focal wall covered in pink-and-white wallpaper. The sweet hue warms up the otherwise neutral master bathroom that stays light and airy thanks to a glass-paneled walk-in shower and three oversize mirrors.

  • Punch Up Personality

    Employ graphic wallpaper with a quirky theme in your powder room for a hit of eccentric style. This fun ostrich print matches the small bathroom's navy painted vanity and creates one-of-a-kind character.

  • Make a Statement

    Wallpaper in a bathroom acts like artwork and gives the space another dimension. This chic Greek-key-inspired wallpaper creates dramatic contrast against ebony-stained wood floors and a traditional freestanding bathtub.

  • Feature Florals

    Don't be afraid to flirt with color and pattern; a small space like a powder room is a great place to go bold with wallpaper. These bright blooms honor the classic look of traditional white fixtures while contributing a touch of modernity with the pattern's oversize scale.

  • Look to the Sky

    Make a large bathroom feel more welcoming by carrying wallpaper up onto the ceiling. The innovative wallpaper placement contains the space and delivers a sense of grandeur thanks to a leaf-and-vine pattern that creates a canopy between the beams.

  • Borrow from Nature

    Wallpaper with a graphic nature-inspired print gives a sense of depth in this new-meets-old powder room. Placed above tall wainscoting, the wall treatment evokes vintage style when paired with a branch-framed mirror, brass faucet, and antique washbasin.

  • Top It Off

    Balance a bright, busy wallpaper pattern with a clean white subway tile backsplash. The tropical print in this guest bathroom takes the space from boring to breathtaking while still honoring the home's traditional touches.

  • Incorporate Texture

    Grass cloth offers subtle color and texture to a bathroom with small square footage. In spaces prone to splashes and steam, faux variations offer the same look but are easier to maintain.

    Continue a Color Scheme

    If there's one thing this kiwi-and-purple color scheme proves, it's that opposites attract attention. Stylized floral wallpaper with subtly different shades of greens and purples inspires the vibrant green used on this bathroom's vanity and mirror frame.

    Encourage Serenity

    Cherry-blossom-inspired wallpaper climbs the wall above crisp white paneling in this sophisticated space. The soft gray detail adds interest to a white-on-white palette and sparkles in the light of a glass chandelier.

    Go Wild

    Limited wall space makes expensive designer wallpaper or a custom faux wall treatment affordable. For a guest bath, try a daring animal print, like this fun zebra wallcovering, or an unexpected color that excites as well as invites.

    Make It Metallic

    If you think modest dimensions demand quiet colors and diminutive designs, this fashion-forward powder room will make you reconsider. Metallic damask wallpaper pops against a black-and-white checked floor. Minimalist white fixtures with black hardware ground the look.

    Consider Neutrals

    Subtly patterned wallpaper in a neutral shade adds warmth, character, and depth to this petite powder room. A shapely vintage-style faucet and vintage-style vanity with flared legs pick up the curvacious shape of the elegant wallpaper pattern.
