Lovely Harlequin wallpaper by RiansYou’ve decided to redecorate your bathroom. You have chosen to install wallpaper – great choice. Wallpapers come in different patterns, colours and designs. You have a variety of options to give your bathroom the exact look you are after.

Is it fine to use wallpaper in bathrooms?

You might be worried about installing wallpaper in your bathroom. That is understandable because after all, you might be concerned whether it will be resistant to water?

Well, the answer is yes, most wallpapers are resistant to water. You can install wallpaper in your bathroom because it is safe. Wallpapers can be made from materials which can be quite forgiving to moisture.

Your bathroom will be humid at times, especially after you get out of a shower but it will not linger – it will be gone after a few minutes especially is you have an exhaust fan installed.

There are many types of wallpaper and walls, so there is no single answer to the question.

Drying time is dependent on many things:

  • Size of the room
  • Window or not
  • Exhaust Fan
  • Weather conditions

However, generally speaking, most wallpapers dry overnight.

The important thing to remember is to be careful when moving wall hangings after you install your wallpaper. It should be completely dry to prevent any problems. Also, don’t forget to leave your bathroom door open and use the exhaust fan to eliminate the chance of steam condensation while your wallpaper is in the process of drying.
