Wallpaper Your Bathroom

How to wallpaper a bathroom In the last few years, wallpaper has made a come-back, adding splashes of colour and accents of luxury to the home. Until recently, wallpaper was mainly used on feature walls or in small spaces, but the trend is changing. Wallpaper is now covering entire rooms, and the choice of textures, colours and patterns available is pretty much infinite.

The bathroom isn't escaping this trend either, but the worry of wallpapering a humid room often stops people going for it. Online retailer Bathrooms.com provided us with a straightforward guide to help you wallpaper your bathroom.

Before you begin, you will need: bucket sponge sugar soap or TSP (Trisodium Phosphate) or equivalent filler (spackle compound) filing knife sandpaper wallpaper paste trimming knife wallpaper scorer wallpaper pasting brush paperhanging brush tape measure spirit level or plumb line pencil scissors paste table or flat work surface ladder Take time to choose the right wallpaper Like every room in the house, not every style of wallpaper will suit your bathroom.

When buying the wallpaper, make sure that the reference, shade and batch numbers are exactly the same for each roll, and get an extra one just in case.

Don't neglect the preparation Because the bathroom is subject to temperature and humidity conditions much more extreme than the rest of the home, it is even more important to have perfectly prepared walls.

If your walls are already covered in wallpaper, it is best to strip the existing paper, rather than pasting over. Go around the room and gently score the wallpaper before soaking it with a mixture of warm water and sugar soap or TSP, and start peeling up the wallpaper from the floor to the ceiling, making sure you don't scratch the plaster underneath. You will probably need to unscrew face plates around sockets and light switches so you can remove the wallpaper underneath them. If you need to do so, switch the power off at the mains to avoid electric shocks. Once the walls are paper-free, wash them down with sugar soap and water so there are no traces of glue left. If your walls are simply painted, just wash them with soapy...
