Is it safe to wallpaper your bathroom walls?
Initially, the thought of placing wallpaper in your bathroom would seem like a crazy idea. The steam from your bathtub and shower would eventually cause the wallpaper to peel, so it is common to question whether you should place wallpaper in this area.
It is completely safe to install wallpaper in many bathrooms. It is also normal to see some lifting due to the condensation and warm temperatures, However, Eazywallz can assure you that this is nothing to worry about.
The way in which many homes have been built over the past 50 years means that they stay at about room temperature. Even the bathroom which is connected to your air conditioning and heating system, means it is being completely climate controlled.
The most popular time for wallpaper was in the Victorian era. The Victorians had the same heat that we did and their wallpaper is most definitely still hanging in homes today.
If your wallpaper was to fall away from your shower, then you have a case of lingering humidity. Your bathroom may be misty and humid when you first get out of the bath or shower, but the humidity shouldn’t linger for more than 10 minutes or so. If you see mold or mildew then you may have a problem. Many homes are equipped with an exhaust fan to ventilate the room and help to remove the chances of mold that can affect your wallpaper.
