10 Eye-Catching Powder Room Wallpaper Designs

Pretty up your half bath with graphic prints, flowing florals and more.

Wallpaper is back in a big way and is one of the trendiest ways to add color and texture to any room, bathrooms included! I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect paper for my powder room — the small space is ideal for experimenting with designs that are a little more daring. Whether you go glam, botanical, cheeky or geometric, with just a few rolls of punchy paper and some elbow grease, you can transform any space in an afternoon! Here are a few favorites we’re considering for our own tiny powder pocket.

Deconstructed Stripes 

This pattern is both playful and incredibly chic at the same time. This paper would look exceptional with black or oil-rubbed bronze hardware and a hit of marble.

The New Polka Dot

Flecks of metallic, be still my heart! I just love the combination of shimmering gold details over this matte grey. This quirky pattern would pair well with a complementary gray wainscoting below.

Indigo Mudcloth 

Here’s your chance to try on the indigo trend in an unexpected way! This eclectic pattern would take any bathroom to boho territory in no time, especially when accessorized with some plants, a kilim rug and a woven basket or two.

Pretty in Peony

If the idea of wallpaper sounds intimidating, try adding a large scale mural across one corner of the bathroom, instead! This floral accent would look particularly striking against a dramatically painted charcoal or emerald wall.

Blue Tropic

I personally adore the botanical trend but am getting a little tired of the same old greenery patterns. This Monstera leaf print is refreshing in an unexpected blue hue that would look lovely with warmer accents like wood and brass.

Green with Marble Envy

Want the marble look but on a budget? Skip updating your vanity and bring the look of luxury to the walls. This pattern would work especially well if you wanted to introduce some solid-hued or white tile into the mix.

House Plants

No green thumb? No problem! Satisfy your plant lady alter ego with this cheeky print that is both retro in style, yet modern in color. The pops of pink are a great starting point for other blush-colored accents dotted about the room.

Desert Breeze

Dreaming of Joshua Tree but live in the city? Get the best of both worlds with a desertscape mural that will have you jet-setting into cactus-filled sunsets as soon as you shut the door. Picture murals are a unique way to add depth and perspective to even the tiniest of rooms.

Geo Glam

Busy patterns in a neutral color make for a delicate layer of texture, especially in smaller rooms. This gray color would allow framed artwork to pop off the walls while still adding a polished, unique look to the space.

River Art

Struggling to find framed art for your space? Paper the walls with artistic prints instead. This brush-stroked paper is the perfect balance of strong and soft and would look dashing paired with a deep navy vanity or accent towels.
