D'franco Painting & Wallpaper – Elgin, Geneva, St. Charles, Chicagoland

It is a question and a statement- Wallpaper in your bathroom.

We are asked daily- Can I wallpaper my bathroom? We tell people daily- Yes you can wallpaper your bathroom. There are several things to consider when choosing wallpaper for you bathroom. We hope to answer your questions so you can make the decision easier for you.

So- Can I have wallpaper in my Bathroom?

Yes you can, (but then again you may not) So what condition is your bathroom in? If you have peeling paint or mold, you may have moisture issues that could prevent a successfull wallpaper installation.  You may need ventilation if you don’t have it already.

Choosing the right wallpaper is the best reason you will have a successfull install. Several factors:

  • grasscloth is one wallpaper that you cannot clean. If the wallpaper is not color fast (that means the ink doesnt run) dont use it in the bathroom.
  • any commercial vinyl is a solid choice with areas with moisture, dampness, or water exposure.
  • wallpaper that are paper hold up pretty well also, but checking the instructions will make sure you are on your way to wallpaper bliss!

Will the wallpaper fall off my walls in a Bathroom?

Will it- no, can it- yes. That is the honest and and awkward answer.  What can cause a fauly installation?

  • the walls not being in good condition
  • walls not primed or sealed correctly
  • wrong adhesive being used
  • selected wallpaper not suitable for water or humid exposure.

A installation that will be successful addresses the above isssues so there will not be a problem with wallpaper peeling, falling or otherwise coming off the wall.

Have  you installed wallpaper in bathrooms before?

Yes we have! Bathroom installations account for 50% of the wallpaper installations we perform. Some are just powder rooms which gives you more options when choosing a wallpaper.  Here are the last few we installed:
