Bathrooms are tricky, aren’t they? They’re private spaces, yet they also need to be open to guests in your home. And when it comes to styling them up, one can’t design and decorate to one’s wishes, as a firm commitment to practicality needs to be present as well (considering that a bathroom is privy to humidity, spills and splatters, etc.).

But not to worry, for we have quite a few suggestions on how to give your bathroom the look it deserves via its wall coverings. Whether your dream space is a colonial bathroom or a bathroom with classic touches, you are sure to be inspired by our examples below…

1. If you’re longing for wood’s wonderful texture in your bathroom, other coverings like vinyl or tiles that imitate a timber surface can also be considered.

2. These embossed textures add subtle-yet-stylish motifs to this elegant bathroom space.

3. Remember what we said about wallpaper? See how fantastically this one manages to fake a timber wall.

4. Less is more, and this coating of subtle patterns in a creamy hue (like this classic design suggests) is worlds away from being deemed ‘boring.

5. Marble is a tried-and-tested classic that flaunts a timeless look in any space (if you’re prepared to pay a little extra).

6. Simple tiles can also do the trick, depending on the size, colours and style you opt for. Monochrome magic for a graceful ambience? Most definitely!

7. These subway tiles add texture and pattern, yet not so much as to dominate the entire bathroom.

8. What do you think of these Mediterranean tiles in delightful patterns splashed across a focal wall?

Don’t miss out on these Beautiful bathroom glass tiles for some additional inspiration.

9. Don’t be scared to bring in a vivid colour, like this bright red. Paired with the right hues and lighting, the results can be surprisingly stylish.
