Tiles and mosaic

The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the phrase “bathroom wall decor ideas” is probably a setup featuring mosaic or tiles. After all, they have been the standard choice for many years. That doesn’t mean they have to be boring though – far from it! Today you can find many amazing designs that will give your bathroom an unforgettable and stylish appearance. If you’d like to achieve a more breezy, bohemian and exotic look, for example, opt for blue and white Moroccan tiles. They can either have the same pattern, for a cool symmetrical finish, or bear mismatched motifs, for a refreshing patchwork look. 3D effect tiles are also a great choice. And when it comes to mosaic, the possibilities are virtually endless. Why not go for a fun, multicolored look?

We are in love with this opulent, Gaudi-inspired mosaic

Mix of textures

Few things can make a room stand out more than a good combination of different textures. Opt for a brickwork or concrete accent wall, if you want to create a modern, industrial-style bathroom, or add some vintage wall tapestries, drapes and curtains, for a relaxing, bohemian space. If your bathroom is small and feels cramped and dingy, consider mirrored walls, and reflective cupboards in bright colors.

Unusual color choices

Another way to refresh your bathroom is by choosing a unique color palette, combined with a selection of stylish statement items. In the past, colors like black, bright red, or dark purple, were seen as too gloomy, and were almost never used. Luckily, more and more people are beginning to see their advantages. After all, if you want a bathroom that is unique, classy, and chic, there is nothing quite as stylish as dark walls.

Here, the black matte tiles have been tastefully combined with decorative items, featuring bright and colorful tribal motifs, for a less sombre look

If you want to breathe some new life into your bathroom without breaking the bank, why not consider using stencils? It’s one of the cheapest and most effective DIY bathroom wall decor ideas! Learn how to do it in the video bellow:

Murals or decals

Those seeking to be 100% original should opt for hand-painted murals or wall decals. There is hardly anything more unique for your bathroom that a large, customized piece of art! If you are artistically inclined, you can paint something yourself. Alternatively, you can hire a professional artist, or buy special water-resistant vinyl-covered wallpapers. Decal stickers are also a popular choice. They are very easy to apply, can be arranged in a myriad of ways, and are cheap enough that when you get bored of them, you can just replace them with new ones!

Relaxing, stylish and beautiful

Small decorative touches

If you’d like to simply refresh your bathroom without making any major changes, consider adding some strategically placed decorative items. A mirror in a beautiful vintage frame, one or several stylish artworks, or a beautiful and unique shower curtain are just a few of the items you can opt for. You’d be surprised how something as small as an art print, a framed poster, or even a potted plant, can give a totally different vibe to a hitherto boring room!
