Is Wallpaper in the Bathroom the Next Big Design Trend?

Matthew Murray, a colour consultant in our Nutgrove store in Dublin recently helped a customer create a striking and unique bathroom. Let’s take a look at his colour consult project below!


I regularly get customers looking to do something a bit more interesting and different in their downstairs toilets and bathrooms. People are moving away from design norms and want to go with something more striking and unique. Wallpaper in your bathroom gives the space an instant face lift.

It’s important to factor in the ventilation in your bathroom before choosing your dream wallpaper – it will not work for every bathroom. Here are two images from a consultant call out I had recently. In both rooms, we went with a feature wallpaper.  It was great to have a customer who wanted to go all out in both.


The peacock wallpaper is from Coles and Sons. Byron 94/7041 with Colourtrend 0470 Dreaming of the Day on the walls. The gold wallpaper is from Coles too. The India Paper 65/1002 with Colourtrend Dressage in an eggshell finish on the panelling.
