We present different proposals in ceramics and stones to cover the walls of the bathroom. The common characteristic of all of them is that they resist humidity and remain unchanged to wear. Choose the most appropriate depending on the space available and, of course, your tastes.
1. VINYL PAPERS FOR THE BATHROOM
Updating the bathroom decoration without getting into complicated works or making large investments is possible. For this, in addition to the increasingly sophisticated tile paint, vinyl wallpapers, such as the one in the photo, are imposed, which withstand moisture and can be cleaned without problems. A solution at a good price with suggestive patterns for all tastes.
2. VINYL: GLUE TILE
A fantastic option for express renovations is this vinyl paper from the Caselio firm, which simulates the finish of mosaic tiles; it sticks, sticks and voila!
3. SOFT TILES
A very original checkerboard, so soft in appearance that it seems padded. It is the Capitoné series, from the Tau Haus collection, perfect to combine with plain white tiles of the same format. Each of the pieces measures 20 x 20 cm, and belongs to the firm Tau Cerámica.
4. CREATE CONTRASTS WITH THE TILES
The symmetry of the tiles creates a strong contrast with the soft lines of the vintage-style chest of drawers from the Urban Class line , by El Corte Inglés (€ 1,120). A striking proposal that Encarna Romero carried out in the Crea Hogar space, at Casa Decor Madrid.
Why not recover an old furniture for the bathroom? The charm is assured; You can paint it in a fun way and make the necessary installations taking advantage of the hole in the first drawer. The space will be round if you decorate the wall with a mirror and wall lights in the same

The built-in mixer is the Table model (€ 210.75); both from Teka Sanitary Systems. The classic-inspired chrome details round off the proposal of the decorator Raúl Martins for the Teka space
6. WALLS WITH NATURAL STONE
Beauty without artifice. The natural stone finishes are spectacular; For this reason, they are imposed in avant-garde bathrooms.

7. GEOMETRIC PATTERNED TILES
Recalling the bathrooms of our childhood, this corner stands out for the hydraulic tile base, by Ludivall. This type of tile – precious and with an increasing presence on the market – must be treated to waterproof them. A classic-inspired washbasin, by Leroy Merlin, completes the vintage look.

9. BATHROOM IN DEEP BLUE
A good quality plastic paint will withstand humidity without problems, although it is advisable not to come into direct contact with water. This space, so fresh and original, was covered in a powerful blue by Pinturas Bruguer that, combined with white, gives off an unmistakable evocation of the sea. The decoration of such smooth walls allows multiple suggestions, from adhesive vinyls to a composition of squares or series of large-format photos.
10. EMBOSSED WALL
The installation technique and the format of the ceramic wall tiles is enough to add personality to a bathroom.

A tempting invitation to bet on straight lines and design.
