Try something daring and unusual but consider the scale of your space and pick a pattern scale that will show at its best. While some large scale patterns may work in your powder room, if the pattern is too large for your space it can become disconnected and unreadable. Patterned wallpapers can also help transform your powder room from a typical space into a space with a lively and energetic aura.
Bold geometric patterns are a popular trend that can be purchased in a range of small to large scale patterns and soft to bold colours.

Most importantly, test a sample of your wallpaper with the lighting in your powder room. Colour, texture, and sheen will have entirely different looks under different light conditions. Even though the powder room may seem like a small and insignificant space, it has a huge impact in your space and will inform a guest's impression of your home.
