What’s on your bathroom walls?

I’ve had bathroom wall treatment ideas on the brain for some time now and you will soon find out why!!  (How’s that for a tease?  I know, I’ll keep working on it)

I’ve been compiling ideas through, where else, Pinterest.  The best part about wall treatments is that they hide any imperfections you may have…drywall issues, dated wallpaper or funky wall textures.  Here are few options I’m liking.

I don’t think I’d change a thing in here.

Or in here……..


We also did this in our kid’s bathroom, 2/3rd’s of the way up the wall.  Inexpensive way to make an impact.  I like that this is painted a color other than white….looks nice!


Kathryn Ireland’s bathroom…it’s so cheerful and “her”.  Like the board and batten, but I don’t know what I think about the board running through at chair rail height??  What do you think?



This molding looks nice and is probably fairly inexpensive, but I think in order to get the full impact, you would need to have tall ceilings or a lot of open wall space.


It’s hard to tell, but I think this is tongue and groove…another pretty option.


Do you have a favorite?  I’d love to hear what you think!

  1. I LOVE the first picture. I’m with you — I wouldn’t change a thing in that room.

  2. I think any type of paneling, board & batten , tongue and groove, placed vertically up to the ceiling would make the room feel taller. It makes your eye look up.
    If my husband ever gets hit by a bus, I’m ripping out the beadboard he installed years ago in our guestbath & replacing it with planking. Like in the first & second picture.
    I love the counter/shelf on last picture.
    But what ever you do, don’t use white penny tile on the floor. It shows EVERYTHING!
    And I love the idea of an antique rug in the space.

  3. I’m back. You got me thinking.
    Howz about doing something cool on the ceiling? A fun color? Wallpaper?
    I’m just throwing ideas out there. Maybe something will stick.

    My powder room needs a bit of a makeover. I love the dark gray one, only I might do wallpaper above. I think millwork in a bathroom is really lovely.

  5. You really can’t beat that first picture….I love the planking on the walls, the wood floor (and the color of the floor), the gray, the marble and the chandy…pretty much perfect in my opinion.

    As for the horizontal board running through Kathryn Ireland’s bathroom…I could do without it. But otherwise, love the style and the colors.

    Can’t wait to see what you’re up to Lauren. :)

    Don’t make me pick…..I love everyone of those! I am going to have to put some wood on the ceiling in my guest bedroom. The ceilings are plaster and they keep cracking!

  7. I am thinking of doing tongue and grove on my bathroom ceiling (to cover the popcorn), but I am concerned about moisture. Does anyone know if there are problems with warping or mold using wood in bathrooms?
