Bathroom space is a treasured resource, and it always seems like there is not enough of it. Toiletries and personal products can occupy most of the limited space, and it can be challenging to keep things uncluttered.

This is where innovative wall decor for your bathrooms come in. They can be quite aesthetic and serve as extra storage as well. Pinterest is full of vivid pictures of stylish bathroom wall decor but here are a few I just had to share.

Before installing any decor or shelf storage that may need to be level, make sure you purchase a self-levelling laser to help you be 100% sure your shelves are straight. The perfect tool for any project that needs you to be on the level.

Bathroom wallpaper

For those that want to change the way their bathroom walls look and do not want to deal with any painting then this is the way to go. Wallpaper designs come in many designs and are more intricate than just painting your entire bathroom to a different colour.

Modern bathroom wallpaper is manufactured to withstand any moisture so it will not quickly incur any water damage. If you have already installed wallpaper before then, you can indeed install bathroom wallpaper yourself.

You can make your selection and order different types in any online marketplace; here is a site of one company that specialises in selling a variety of bathroom wallpaper.

Repainting your bathroom walls

As a bonus, this one is also one of many great ideas for kitchen decor.

If your bathroom walls have not been painted since forever, it would be an ideal place to start making a change. If you want your bathroom to be a relaxing escape, make sure to choose light colours. Light shades give the illusion of more space and would also help reflect your lighting.

You can even ask your local hardware what the LRV(light reflective value) is of the particular colours your interested in. No one is saying you can’t choose dark colours but that would make the room seem unnecessarily moody.

Make sure to ask the hardware store clerk for the best mildew resistant paint that they have available. A mix of both light and dark colours might work if you use the lighter shade for the walls and fixtures and a darker shade for accents.

You can also choose to paint the walls and cabinets the same tone as well. It would be best to start with a step by step deep cleaning of your bathroom, schedule your redecorating after your weekly maintenance.

This will prepare your space for the new paint scheme you have decided to implement and allow for a seamless transition.


So there you have it these are just a few bathroom wall decor ideas. If you’re happy with your current paint and how your tile looks then you can get right to decorating. Bathroom wall decor hacks that also serve as extra storage and bathroom art are on the menu.

On the other hand, if you think your bathroom walls look old then it’s time choose whether to repaint it or go with wallpaper. It’s now up to you to decide what you want to do and which one best suits your taste, either one you choose should turn out awesome.
