5 brilliant bathroom wallpaper looks from Instagram

August 27, 2021

Wetroom wallpaper is a big trend. Good Homes magazine picks out a few of the best bathroom wallpaper ideas from Instagram…

There’s no reason why you can’t inject as much personality into your bathroom as you can in the rest of your home. Wallpaper has made a massive comeback and it has made its way into the bathroom too. Because they are often small spaces, it’s a great opportunity to unleash your creativity and go wild with colour or pattern without overwhelming the space entirely.

Let’s take a look at some of the looks taking Instagram by storm…

1. Leopard print

Melissa from Oho House used leopard print wallpaper in her bathroom to make a roaring statement! She’s also glammed up her bathroom with gold shower fittings and intricate floor tiles. Consider which wall you choose to hang your wallpaper on in the bathroom, as you don’t want it to come in direct contact with water.

2. Jungle fever

Pink and green is a winning combination and we love it in Lissi from Oxfordone’s bathroom. The oversized banana leaf print stands out and complements her gorgeous pink bath. Lissi has used tiles in the area directly above the bath to avoid the wallpaper being exposed to too much moisture.

3. Pretty florals

Elle from the account Elle the Home Bird has created a two-tone look in her bathroom by using metro tiles to fill the bottom half her wall space and decadent floral wallpaper to fill the top half. This not only looks great but is a wise move in terms of keeping non-waterproof wallpaper out of the way of unavoidable splashes.

4. Japanese baths

This beautiful Sage Tsuru wallpaper from @wallart.europe has transformed this bathroom from drab to fab. The wallpaper is self-adhesive laminated vinyl, which is 100% water resistant and can be cleaned with your usual cleaning products. So much easier than getting the tilers in – and cheaper, too!

5. 50 shades of green

@erinkestenbaum, a New York and Connecticut-based photographer remodelling her 1940s Colonial property, shows us how different the same bathroom can look with different interior design approaches. The final look, with forest-print wallpaper, traditional basin and gold bathroom fixings looks both contemporary and cosy.
