It’s a great option for those who want to make a significant visual impact on a limited budget.
Choosing the Right Peel and Stick Wallpaper for Your Bathroom
The right choice will of course depend on your personal style, the existing elements in your bathroom, and the overall ambiance you wish to create. Here are some tips to help you make an informed decision:
Consider the Color Scheme: Begin by assessing the existing color palette in your bathroom. Take into account the colors of your tiles, fixtures, and other decorative elements. You can either choose a peel and stick wallpaper that complements the existing colors or opt for a contrasting shade to create a bold statement. Remember, lighter colors can make a small bathroom appear more spacious, while darker hues can add depth and drama.
Pay Attention to Pattern Scale: The scale of the pattern on the peel and stick wallpaper is essential for achieving the desired effect in your bathroom. For a small or narrow bathroom, consider selecting wallpapers with small or medium-sized patterns. These can create the illusion of a more expansive space. In larger bathrooms, you can experiment with larger patterns or even mural-like designs to make a striking impact.
Reflect Your Bathroom Style: Think about the overall style you want to achieve in your bathroom. Are you aiming for a modern, contemporary look, a rustic farmhouse feel, or a glamorous and luxurious ambiance? Choose a peel and stick wallpaper that aligns with your desired style. For a modern bathroom, sleek geometric patterns or abstract designs may work well, while floral or vintage patterns can enhance a classic or shabby chic aesthetic.
Preparing Your Bathroom for Wallpaper Installation
Before making a purchase, carefully measure the walls of your bathroom to determine the amount of peel and stick wallpaper you’ll need. We offer a wallpaper roll calculator on each product page to help you to determine the right number of rolls. If you’ve chosen a wall mural for your space, just enter the wall dimensions (remember to add some extra material for installation, walls are rarely completely straight!). It’s essential to have accurate measurements to avoid running out of wallpaper.
Clean the Walls
Start by thoroughly cleaning the walls of your bathroom. Remove any dirt, dust, or residue that may hinder the adhesion of the peel and stick wallpaper. Use a mild detergent, warm water, and a sponge or cloth to gently wipe down the walls. Ensure that the walls are completely dry before moving on to the next step.
Smooth and Prime the Walls
If your bathroom walls have any texture or roughness, it’s advisable to smooth them out before applying the wallpaper. You can use sandpaper or a sanding block to gently sand the walls, ensuring they are even and free from any bumps or rough patches. Wipe away any dust generated during the sanding process.
While peel and stick wallpaper generally adhere well to most surfaces, it’s recommended to prime the walls, especially if they are porous or have been painted with a flat or matte finish. A primer creates a smooth and even surface, improving the wallpaper’s adhesion. Apply a coat of primer according to the manufacturer’s instructions and allow it to dry thoroughly before proceeding.
Remove Existing Wallpaper
If your bathroom walls have existing wallpaper or loose paint, it’s essential to remove them before applying the peel and stick wallpaper. Use a wallpaper steamer or a solution of warm water and wallpaper stripper to loosen and remove the old wallpaper. For loose paint, gently scrape it off the walls using a putty knife or scraper. Ensure that the walls are smooth and clean after the removal process.
Installing Peel and Stick Wallpaper in Your Bathroom
Follow these step-by-step instructions to achieve a successful and professional-looking application:
Start from a Level Point
Identify a level starting point on one of your bathroom walls. This is crucial for ensuring that the wallpaper goes on straight and aligned. Use a level tool or a measuring tape and a pencil to mark a vertical line as a guide. This initial line will serve as your reference throughout the installation process.
Measure and Cut the Wallpaper
Measure the height of your wall, adding a few inches for trimming at the top and bottom. Using these measurements, cut the peel and stick wallpaper accordingly. It’s advisable to cut several strips at once, especially if you have a repeating pattern, to ensure consistency in design.
Peel and Apply
Start at the top of your wall and peel off a small section of the backing from the first strip of wallpaper. Align the top edge of the wallpaper with the level line you marked earlier, ensuring it is straight and in position. Slowly press the wallpaper onto the wall, smoothing it out as you go to avoid any bubbles or wrinkles.
Align the Patterns
If your peel and stick wallpaper have a pattern, it’s essential to ensure that the patterns align properly between each strip. As you hang subsequent strips, carefully match the patterns at the edges. This helps to create a seamless and cohesive look. Take your time to achieve accurate alignment.
Smooth and Trim
Using a wallpaper smoother or a clean, dry cloth, smooth the wallpaper from the center outward to remove any air bubbles or creases. Pay special attention to the edges and corners to ensure they are securely adhered. For a professional finish, use a sharp utility knife or scissors to trim the excess wallpaper at the top and bottom of the wall. Take care not to cut into the wall itself.
Repeat the Process
Continue hanging the remaining strips of peel and stick wallpaper, following the same steps of peeling, applying, aligning, smoothing, and trimming. Take breaks as needed, but try to maintain a consistent rhythm to ensure a smooth and seamless installation.
Time to enjoy your new bathroom decor
Peel and stick wallpaper offers a multitude of benefits, including durability, moisture-resistance, ease of installation, and versatility in design. It allows you to revamp your bathroom without the hassle of traditional wallpaper application. With its removable and reusable nature, you have the freedom to change your bathroom’s look whenever inspiration strikes.
Remember to take your time in selecting the perfect peel and stick wallpaper that complements your bathroom’s color scheme, pattern scale, and desired style.
Proper preparation of the walls is crucial for a flawless application. Cleaning, repairing imperfections, smoothing the walls, and priming (if necessary) create an optimal surface for the wallpaper to adhere to. By following the step-by-step installation guide, you’ve achieved a professional finish.
Lastly, your wallpaper requires a bit of love to maintain its longevity and beauty. Avoid excessive moisture exposure, regularly clean with non-abrasive materials, and handle any stains or spills promptly.
With your newly transformed bathroom, you can enjoy a space that exudes style, creativity, and a personal touch. Enjoy the process of creating a bathroom that inspires and rejuvenates, and may your newfound décor bring you joy for years to come. Happy decorating!
