Powder room wallpaper is the hottest interior trend of 2022. And we can clearly see the reason. Powder room is that one space in house where it is so easy to create a visual statement. Whether it is a graphic wallpaper or a bright pop of color, this often becomes a playground for design experiments. And that totally makes sense – you can keep the rest of the house classy and let your freak flag fly when decorating powder room. 

How to choose a wallpaper for powder room?

You should start with deciding on the material. We recommend sticking (literally) with peel and stick wallpaper as it allows to skip the mess and do it by yourself in a matter of few hours. The same goes for choosing a pattern. Bigger and larger-scaled prints will fill the room and add a busy feel to it. It will be easier on the eye and create a bolder impact. Smaller patterns, on the other hand, will help you to add a spacious effect and help the eye wander (we all know how the sense of time sometimes fades away in powder room). Small pattern will also help with the application process. Dainty prints are more forgiving and tend to disguise the flaws of installation.

Powder Room Wallpaper on Ceiling

If you want your powder room to stay more classy and neutral but crave an unexpected accent, add a dramatic touch by wallpapering the ceiling. The good news is that you can install wallpaper in most powder room areas. Bold wallpaper ceiling makes a great contrast to neutral walls if done correctly. Darker colors on the ceiling will create a “heavier” effect, weighting the room down. This will make the space look more cozy and homely. However, lighter hues will open up the space and make the room feel larger than it is. There are just a few rules to keep in mind when decorating your powder room with a wallpapered ceiling.

First of all, pay attention to preparing the ceiling beforehand. You should start with smooth, clean, and intact surface. There should be no cracks to avoid buckled wallpaper effect. The same goes for popcorn ceilings. Wallpaper will not stick on it as well and the texture will show through. Second, choose a high quality material. We highly recommend choosing peel and stick wallpaper as it will be way easier to apply it. It should be thick and highly adhesive to hold for many years to come. therefore, The Wallberry is the perfect match as we do offer the highest quality peel and stick material.

How many rolls of wallpaper do I need for a small powder room?

To calculate the amount of wallpaper rolls needed, keep in mind a simple technique. Wallpaper here is sold in panels that have the same width and different heights. To find out the panel size needed, just measure your wall height and choose the panel size that matches perfectly or is a few inches larger. We offer 96, 108, 120 or 144 inches high wallpaper panels. The width of all these panels are 25 inches. Therefore, measure the wall width and separate it with 25. The closest biggest number will be the amount of panels needed.
