Wallpaper in the bathroom – will it hold up?
There are two main issues people run into when applying wallpaper in the bathroom – the development of mold and it peeling off. But with appropriate preparation, you can easily avoid both and have a wonderful bathroom enhanced with beautiful bathroom wallpaper.
Take into account the following tips to help your bathroom wallpaper stay up and clean!
- Prepare the wall
Make sure the wall is extra clean, doesn’t have any debris, and is dry. It is better to apply wallpaper to a very flat surface without any roughness – that way the bathroom wallpaper will stick better. Avoid adding wallpaper on unpainted drywall or porous or textured walls.
- Ensure there is excellent ventilation in the bathroom
To avoid the accumulation of humidity and therefore the creation of mold, be sure your bathroom is well ventilated. Either with ventilators or the possibility to open a window.
- Choose waterproof wallpaper
Nowadays there are options for almost anything, including wallpaper that is mostly waterproof. Our stick and peel and traditional wallpaper are able to withstand medium levels of humidity, so they will work very well in bathroom areas.
- Use silicone filler for seems
To avoid moisture creeping under the bathroom wallpaper, use clear silicone caulk for the edges and seems. That way you will help your wallpaper stay fresh and beautiful for a long period of time.
- Don’t put bathroom wallpaper in wet areas
Any wallpaper in really wet areas won’t hold for long. Avoid putting bathroom wallpaper in the shower and very near a sink, anywhere where it will get lots of direct water splashes. A great place for wallpaper in the bathroom is the wall behind the toilet or the wall with bathroom doors. You can also mix tiles with wallpaper – use tiles for the shower, but wallpaper for other areas in the bathroom.
