Bathroom wallpapers – our pick of the best

Who says you can't use wallpaper in bathrooms? You can, and to great effect. Take a look at these magnificent bathroom wallpaper designs for inspiration.

Give your bathroom a new lease of life on a budget with wallpaper. From realistic tile designs to coastal seascapes, freshen up your space and create interest with one of these fabulous feature wallpaper designs. Here we pick the best bathroom wallpapers to suit all tastes and budgets. Follow manufacturers' guideline for putting up wallpaper and use the recommended paste where possible. Many papers are now designed so you can paste the wall rather than the paper, making them much easier to hang. The best thing you can do to ensure a wallpaper's longevity in a bathroom is to avoid hanging it in areas that come into direct contact with water. Finally, make use of an extractor fan (or fit one if you don't have one), and turn it on as soon as possible to whisk away excess moisture.
