Wallpaper murals are a fantastic addition to any bathroom, bringing it to life or providing a cheap way to recreate the look of expensive materials such as marble. However, do think about the following before investing in a mural for your bathroom.


The location of your wallpaper mural is important. Inside a shower cubicle or right next to a shower is a big no. While the odd splash won’t damage wallpaper, sustained exposure to water, steam and heat will make it peel no matter what you do.

You can still enjoy a wall mural in a shower cubicle or near to a shower – reverse printed clear acrylic is what you need. If you fancy this, please get in touch, as we can also produce this for you.

Behind a bath – especially a free standing one – would be alright, as it won’t get soaked (unless you’ve got splashing kids! Bear that in mind!) and the amount of heat and moisture coming off a hot bath wouldn’t be too detrimental.

That said, position your bathroom wallpaper mural away from the bath, shower and sink if you can.


The more ventilation you have, the better. Whether it is via windows, fans or both, the quicker moisture in the air can disperse, the better it will be for your bathroom wallpaper. If you have very little ventilation in your bathroom we would recommend you stay away from wallpaper as it will eventually peel and curl.

Choosing the right paper

You may be tempted to go for a self adhesive wallpaper for your bathroom but this would be a mistake. The adhesive is much more susceptible to heat and moisture than a traditional paste and will loose its ‘sticky’ properties over time no matter how well ventilated your bathroom is.

Stick with the tried and tested wallpaper paste. From our options, we would always recommend Paste the Wall for bathrooms – it’s much easier to apply, it makes hanging the wallpaper simpler and it will last longer than any other type.

If your paper does peel

If you underestimated how steamy your bathroom gets or overestimated how much ventilation you have and your wallpaper mural does begin to peel, DON’T PANIC.

If you act quickly enough, your mural can be repaired by purchasing extra adhesive to re-seal it. This is easy to do around the edges and seams. However, you will likely need to install some form of extra ventilation to prevent it happening again. A window or wall fan – which allows moisture out quickly – or even an additional window – would do the trick.

My bathroom measures up…inspire me!

You have a well ventilated bathroom with a wall perfectly positioned and crying out for a mural, do you? Ok…here’s some ideas for you!


Already beautifully done, the bathroom was clearly feeling too small for the couple, with Peter describing it as ‘our smallest room’.

They turned to Wallbeard to produce a wall mural that would make it feel much bigger. Having browsed our library for a suitable image they opted for the woodland scene at the top of this post.

We got to work straight away, using the dimensions provided by Peter to print the scene at the highest quality on their chosen wallpaper – Paste the Wall. The mural measured just over 2.8m wide and 2.3m tall comprising four panels in total. This is about average for the murals we produce.

We shipped the product on next day delivery as standard and Peter and Philippa installed it soon after.

So were they happy? Here’s what Peter had to say:

Thrilled with the woodland scene in our outside loo. Quality product. Our smallest room is now so much bigger!

Can’t say fairer than that! If you’d like a forest mural like this one, take a look here. Or you can upload your own photos here. Either way, it’s sure to make your smallest room feel much larger!


On one wall, at least!

A feature wall in a bathroom can be a very powerful thing. It can bring it to life. It can even change your mood when you’re in it.

A carefully chosen bathroom wallpaper positioned on the right wall. This is usually – but not necessarily – behind the bath so as to make it the central focus of the room. But it really depends on the size and layout of your bathroom. In this, the decision will be yours.

In this post, we’d like to give you some ideas for choosing the right mural.


Bathrooms are all about water, from the shower to the bath to the sink, running water is the central theme and use of your bathroom. Opting for a wallpaper that reflects this can produce amazing results.

For a more sedate, relaxing water themed mural it makes sense to dip below the surface and explore the wonders of the underwater world. You can turn your bathroom into a window to the depths or perhaps just paddle around the shallows…

Our bathrooms are often the rooms we go to to get away from it all, wash away the stresses of the day with a long, hot bath. As such, it follows that the décor in our bathrooms should assist with this. Choosing a calming, tranquil image for your feature wall will feel as good as it looks.

As we’ve said, water is the overarching theme in any bathroom. But you may not want that to play through your entire décor. Instead you could choose to compliment it by introducing other natural themes.

There is so much more you can do with your bathroom when you choose wallpaper – specifically photo wallpaper – over plain tiles. And this is just a fraction of the options open to you. Trick is to think outside the bath, get creative in your own style and make it work for you. What do you think? Would you go for a bathroom wallpaper mural in your home?


Whether abstract or artistic in nature, watercolour is a beautiful finish and can be transferred from the canvas to wallpaper to create truly amazing wall murals.

We think they suit the bathroom best, but the right watercolour could suit ANY room, really. The bolder in colour and subject it is, the more at home it would feel in the living room or bedroom, for example.

But back to the bathroom. We’ve created 10 watercolour roomsets to give you some inspiration when you choose your next bathroom wall mural…and we’d love to know what you think, so hook up with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and comment/Tweet us. You’ll also find more inspiration on our Pinterest boards.

There are few more stunning sights in the world than ‘winterscapes’. Indeed, such scenes make remarkably striking wall murals and they can suit a well decorated room all year round – not just for Christmas!

Avoiding any obvious Christmas references when choosing a winter wall mural is a must, but from there the options are endless. A little bit of out of the box thinking can get you a genuinely unique look and feel, as we hope to demonstrate here with these ideas. Let us know what you think on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Have you ever considered a Christmas themed wall mural though? We’re betting you haven’t. And yet they can be incredibly versatile. Not only can they turn a room into your own private Santa’s Grotto, but they can also make even the smallest space feel suitably Christmas-y – without the need for other decorations or even that blasted tree!

You may prefer a winter-y scene designed to compliment your Christmas decorations in the living room, or a kid’s Christmas theme for their bedrooms, or even something extremely stylish for the office that brings the Christmas feeling in without compromising on the professional look. You see? VERSATILE.

“Why would I decorate a room with wallpaper for only two weeks or so?” I hear you cry. Good question!

If you choose our self adhesive wallpaper you can have a semi-permanent Christmas wall mural that is relatively easy to remove after the holiday. The wallpaper is super simple to put up, will STAY up for as long as you need it and should come down from most wall surfaces just as easily and in one piece*.

That’s the technical bit out of the way – now let these examples inspire you!

And remember, choose our self adhesive wallpaper and it’ll be super simple to take it down in the New Year too!

*Assuming you hang your wallpaper on a surface as described in the instructions we send. If used to overlay painted walls or other wallpaper, self adhesive wallpaper my not stay up as intended and will likely damage the underlying surface on removal.
