Your decorator will be able to advise on the correct type of wallpaper for your bathroom, so it may be best to wait until you have spoken with them before you buy. They may suggest a vinyl or fabric-backed design or treating the wallpaper with a bond once it is up. DIY stores also offer wallpapers that are designed for bathroom use, where they are likely to have to contend with damp and being splashed with water.
Your decorator should be able to advise you on how many rolls you need. The cost of these papers will obviously vary wildly with brand and quality, but your tradesman should have an idea of what will work best for you and can even advise on colour schemes if you need them to.
When the bathroom walls have been prepared, any plastering work has been done and everything is clean, then your decorator can commence with putting your wallpaper up. You will need to ask for a detailed quote of what you are paying for and how, as some decorators will charge by room dimensions, some by the hour and some by the amount of rolls they have to hang.
It is important to know this in case the job takes longer than you or the decorator thought it may. The overall cost for the job will depend upon the dimensions of your bathroom, as well as any quirks of the job that will make it more time-consuming, such as addition of dado rails or stencils.
