Q: Is it wise to use a wallcovering in a bathroom or powder room? If so, is there a way to ensure that moisture won’t become an issue?
A: It is absolutely fine to use wallcoverings in a bathroom—so long as you choose the right wallcovering and create the proper environment.
First, remember that ventilation is paramount when creating an environment suitable for wallcoverings. Fans and windows can help to eliminate moisture and prevent mold or mildew from forming.
While natural wallcoverings are extremely popular, they are not the best choice in a damp environments. In the case of bathrooms, we suggest customers consider vinyl alternatives like those offered by Phillip Jeffries. Vinyl wallcoverings can provide the look of a natural paper but with the addition of an Anti-Microbial element and Stain Repellent Finish.
Phillip Jeffries is a brand dedicated to an ongoing, innovative product development process and it shows in their vast range of vinyl options that provide stunning alternatives to papers crafted from linen, silk, bamboo, leather, cork, seagrass, paper weaves, raffia, grass cloth, burlap, help and more.
