should you wallpaper your bathroom?

In a word: Yes!

While there are a few caveats (scroll down for those!), wallpaper in the bathroom is a super simple way to experiment with pattern and color in a small and relatively risk-free space. Reimagine your powder room, primary or guest bathroom with fun graphic prints, floral themes, and more. Opt for peel and stick, and enjoy a little more peace of mind when it comes to swapping out your old design for a new wallcovering when the inspiration next strikes.

Now, about those caveats:

If your bathroom is outfitted with a tub and/or shower, and you're fearful over humidity wreaking havoc on the wallpaper, just make sure your space has plenty of ventilation—a.k.a. a fully functional window. You should be in the clear, but be sure to check with your wallpaper manufacturer for further details before install!
