Wallpaper For A Small Powder Room
A small powder room delight for guests or a future-scientist’s exploratorium for little ones. A small powder room’s limited wall space is partly why it’s an ideal wallpaper candidate. Don’t hover over the small prints when choosing wallpaper for your powder room, bigger patterns are better or at least more interesting. On sparse walls, a bold, graphic design acts as the art peeking out around the mirror, light bar, vanity, shelving and commode. So explore colorful ikat designs, ponder paisley paper and toy with jumbo, retro floral prints. Standout wallpaper is an ideal starting point for the room’s scheme or theme. Use durable, washable, pre-pasted vinyl wallpaper for sufficient adhesion and to combat bathroom humidity. When you hang wallpaper, mistakes aren’t a possibility, they’re a probability, so order extra. Tally the bolts you’ll require by totaling the walls’ square footage, ignoring the door, vanity and any window; you’ll need the excess for pattern matching and waste.
Twenty percent or so more than the actual wall area should provide enough to work with effectively. Ready the powder room by removing practically everything except the toilet, vanity, moldings and a wall-mounted light fixture. Take down the mirror. Unscrew the outlet and light-switch covers. Then wash the walls, using warm water and a little mild detergent. Patch any holes with joint filler for a smooth wallpaper finish indents or flaws are especially obvious in small rooms.
