A dark wallpaper is one of the trendiest current styles to experiment with in your small bathroom. It is sleek, modern and oh-so-edgy.

To give it its full effect, contrast it against silver hardware and the one-off splash of color.

With soft yellow wallpaper, your bathroom will achieve an inviting look. It adds delicate color that isn’t too shocking but is still different and unique.

Mellow yellow wallpaper also works well with most textures, shades, and décor, making it versatile.

No color combination can boast elegance like black and white. So, to bring this timeless feel into your bathroom, a simple or patterned black and white wallpaper will do the job.

It also creates dimension in the room, hence a more spacious look.

4. Blue and white

Blue and white is another iconic combo in the wallpaper world. It gives fresh and clean vibes, while still having character.

You can choose from a variety of shades ranging from sky blue to midnight blue, then play around with all sorts of patterns.

If you’re not sold on the idea of floor-to-ceiling wallpaper in your bathroom, this half-and-half idea is for you.

Cover up to 36 or 42 inches of the walls with tiles or wood paneling and the remaining upper half with a funky wallpaper to achieve this look.

6. Grey and white tones

Instead of the typical neutral colors like white, nude, and black for your bathroom’s wallpaper, why not go for grey?

When paired with white in a wallpaper pattern, the wallpaper will give moody, masculine, and dramatic energy to the room.

7. Textured wallpaper

You can use textured wallpaper to infuse some architectural flair into your small bathroom.

It instantly draws attention and gives either warmth or coolness to the space. It looks fantastic against bathtubs and sink vanities.

For all those in touch with their girly side, you will adore pink bathroom wallpaper.

Young adults may like hot pink and bright prints, while more mature individuals can gravitate towards coral and rose gold colors.

There are many pink wallpaper shades and patterns to choose from.

If bold animal prints like cheetah and leopard don’t resonate with you, animal artwork wallpaper can be more up your alley.

This wallpaper print will remain modern and elegant while infusing wildlife elements into your small bathroom.

To bring the essence of fall into your home, put russet brown wallpaper in your bathroom. It will make the small space extra cozy and warm.

Other fall-theme colors you can consider are hues of deep red, orange, and yellow.

A bold floral pattern is an excellent choice for a small bathroom because it will infuse vibrancy and color into the space.

Whereas small, delicate, and frilly flowers suit big rooms, big and bright flowers are better for your enclosed bathroom.

12. Peace and Calm

Wallpaper can create a calm and serene ambiance in your bathroom if you get it in a crisp white color.

It also makes your small bathroom look spacious and airy.

Silver flecks or light shades of blue and grey can make it more interesting.

13. Big, bold print

I have found that against plain ceilings or floors, bold and unique wallpapers pop more, creating an eye-catching look that will impress anyone who walks into the bathroom.

The brighter the wallpaper, the more youthful and fun the room feels, so go all out if you’re courageous enough.

14. Nature green

For a more muted nature-themed wallpaper, light natural green prints are the way to go.

It has a calming, soothing effect and works as a great backdrop to other nature-inspired décor, like potted plants and tree art pieces.

15. Geometric shapes

Geometric designs are contemporary, so don’t shy away from this wallpaper idea if you are looking for more dimension.

Play around with shapes and opt for different colors aside from black and white, which are monotone.

16. Wallpapered bathroom ceiling

Another stunning, unique wallpaper idea for your small bathroom is only putting it on the ceiling. It’s quirky, unique, and very unexpected.

Expect this design to add a sense of grandeur and create the illusion of more space.

Note, however, that there must be enough ventilation because of shower condensation.

17. Kiddy wallpaper

No matter how small a kid’s bathroom is, cute wallpaper can vamp it up. The key is to get wallpaper with lots of color, illustrations, and fictional characters.

That will for sure make every bathroom visit more whimsical.
