Redesigning a bathroom can seem like a challenging project. From the small space to the cluttered appliances, creating a look that is both balanced as well as refreshing requires both some thought and dedication. Making sure to not go overboard with your design is also essential in creating a clean space that is free from claustrophobia!

Today, we show you that updating your bathroom doesn’t have to include all those unsightly renovations or a long day of painting, instead choose a couple of your favorite WallPops designs, outline a rough sketch of your desired “look” and then simply get to work!

We loved how these simple bathroom sayings were a perfect complement to the standout ceiling design below!

For added dimension, we framed the Bamboo Wall Decals in black frames to tie all the colors in the bathroom together!

Our advice, pick one primary area in your bathroom that will carry the design and then build out from there. In the video below, we chose to focus on the ceiling and then accent on the walls and other areas of the powder room. However, the most important advice is to pick a design that you LOVE. Although you don’t spend all your time in the bathroom, it is a place that encompasses beauty, cleanliness and hopefully relaxation, so you want a look that reflects that whether you choose to go simple or bold with the design!

Hayneedle’s Top 5 WallPops Decals

A Special Guest Post By John Rost for hayneedle.com

Hayneedle_LogoA quick spin around Pinterest reveals large-print wallpapers, bold painted stencils, and other eye-popping designs are adding serious visual interest to the walls around us. If you don’t want to go with full-on wallpaper — maybe you like to change your visuals often, or maybe you’re decorating a space that grows with you — wall decals are an ideal option. They’re easy to apply, easy to remove, and beautifully designed in an incredible array of designs, colors, and shapes. We’re particularly excited about the well curated collection of WallPops on hayneedle.com, which are also handily affordable. Here are a few of our favorites from the collection:

 1. WallPops El Paradiso Wall Mural 

El Paradiso Beach Wall Mural

WHOOSH! That’s the sound of you being whisked away on an island vacation the minute you walk into a room. This stunning, giant wall decal takes over an entire wall with a bright, high-definition photographic beach scene. This daily vacation comes as eight easy paste-on panels — no tickets or bag check required.

 

2. WallPops Red Branch Wall Decals

Need a pop of color? Cherry blossoms are beautiful, wistful, and bright. This eye-catching vinyl wall decal is peel-and-stick, so you can place it on any painted wall as many times as you like.

 

3. WallPops Owl Tree Wall Decal Kit

Owl Tree Wall Decals for Kids Room or Nursery Decor

Decals are great for kids rooms, too. Colorful and fun, they provide the visuals that little ones love without the permanence of wallpaper. This cute tree decal is a hoot, and, at over 4 feet tall, it makes a fun project to put up (or take down) together.

 

4. WallPops Floral Medley Organization Kit Wall Decals

Floral Medley Dry Erase Wall Calendar Organization Kit Decals

The set is perfect for a home office or dorm room. It’s all peel-and-stick, so you can rearrange it however you want, using all or a few of the pieces. There’s a weekly calendar, a monthly calendar, a big floral message board, and a cork board for reminders.

 

5. WallPops White Orchid Wall Decal

White Orchid Flower Wall Decal

This orchid wall decal is truly photorealistic, printed in oversized super-high definition for a beauty that’s beyond anything you could paint or paste. It comes as a single-piece stick-on, so the possibilities for where it can bloom are nearly endless.

The solution? Create a place in your home where organization reigns, a place where you can go that has all the answers!
