As many trends do, they go in and out of style throughout seasons and generations. Wallpaper was one of those distinctive trends that was extremely popular and was seen throughout the 60s and 70s to create cozy homes or abstract designs (Stewart, 2016). Wallpaper can be used within any style or theme and has recently been used in the most unique and creative designs.
Including wallpaper in your farmhouse bathroom can add texture and dimension to the room. It also changes the design up from common accents such as shiplap. Choosing the wallpaper is certainly the most fun part of the process! However, with millions of options it may be a bit difficult. The most important consideration is to pick the wallpaper that best fits your vision and style. Creating Pinterest boards or skimming through HGTV shows or scrolling through Instagram may assist in narrowing down the count. Farmhouse bathrooms tend to utilize rustic accents, brushed finishes or matte black. These are some design attributes to consider! Wallpaper can be a fabulous addition to your bathroom and doesn’t have to be a trend that you’re stuck with. If you ever decide to remove or change the wallpaper, there is that option!
Wallpaper can certainly be a fun way to spruce up the bathroom without doing a full remodel. There are so many unique wallpaper designs these days that the options are endless for creativity. If you’re seeking a dark and moody bathroom, a darker wallpaper or with significant uses of blacks, gray and dark blues and greens would be best. However, if a light and bright bathroom design is wanted, using wallpaper with pastel colors would be the way to go. Whether a light or dark wallpaper scheme is used, the room can always be brightened or darkened with the fixture finishes. Using polished chrome, brass or nickel with dark wallpaper will create a highlight. Matte black, antique brass and oil rubbed bronze paired with a light wallpaper will contrast. The designs within the wallpaper can make the biggest impact on the space so when choosing very unique ones, be sure to keep in mind the accenting fixtures!
Now when designing with wallpaper, the first thing that catches the eye is the wallpaper. This doesn’t mean that the surrounding décor and faucets can’t be stunning and radiant. A vintage style bathroom can be designed with a wall mount faucet and sink. A more traditional or modern bathroom can incorporate a widespread faucet that can add design while being more simple.
