Paint

If your bathroom is painted, make it pop by mixing one of the walls up with a complementary colour. This is a great way to experiment with shades that might seem a bit too overwhelming for an entire room.

How refreshing is this green wall? It’s bright and fun! Since it’s kept to “accent status” it’s not overwhelming and actually adds a fresh, spa-like vibe to the room. We love how the colour is also incorporated in the wash clothes and side tables!

Wallpaper

Wallpaper is a perfect option for accent walls in bathrooms that are painted in neutral colours. Opt for a modern print to give the room a contemporary chic tone. Antique wallpaper patterns can give your bathroom a luxurious, almost Parisian feel. If you’re looking for a cozier mood, vintage papers can do the trick.

In the photo below, the bricks bring out the modern, industrial feel of the room. Brick can also be used to make a bathroom seem more rustic and cozy.

Luckily, if you love the look and feel of exposed bricks but don’t have any in your home, many manufactures sell tile and even wallpapers that are made to look like bricks.

Tiles

Last but not least, almost all bathrooms incorporate tile somewhere—whether it’s inside the shower or in the form of a back splash behind the sink. That said, this tile is often neutral and boring! What a perfect opportunity to have some fun, by including untraditional tile into an accent wall.

Bright coloured tile and mosaics can instantly change the mood of your boring bathroom. If you want a regal and luxurious mood to your space, opt for slate or marble tiling.

We love how the picture above uses tile to turn a neutral palette into a totally fun design.

However you design your bathroom accent walls it is important to compliment it using the right bath and shower accessories. If you don’t do that it can mar the look of the bathroom and ruin your efforts to make your bathroom look stylish.
