If you want to wallpaper your entire bathroom, then you would do best to choose a faint or neutral pattern or something in a pale color. A loud, bright pattern can make a tiny room seem oppressive. This is especially the case if you plan to wallpaper from the floor to the ceiling. Being completely surrounded by intense shades and designs is going to give you a headache. Instead, if you want to cover all of your walls in wallpaper, choose something subtle. Remember that your pattern could seem much more visible once you are surrounded by it. You should also not forget that you will probably be using the bathroom to shave or put your makeup on. Pale colors reflect more light, so it will be easier for you to see what you are doing every morning if you choose light-colored wallpaper for your bathroom.

How to Fake Wallpaper
Just because you are renting does not necessarily mean that you need to forget about having a pattern in your bathroom. If you are like most renters, there is no way that your landlord is going to agree to let you wallpaper the bathroom. Wallpaper is just not practical in a rental property because it is too difficult to replace. You can fake wallpaper, though, by using a stencil to paint a wallpaper-like pattern onto your wall. Depending upon your skill set, stenciling a pattern onto the wall may be even easier than hanging real wallpaper anyway. This way, you can enjoy the look of wallpaper, and then just paint over your pattern when it is time to move. Your landlord will be none the wiser.
