Animal Print Bathroom Ideas

Adding animal prints to a home bathroom is a great way to create a stylish, well-put-together bathroom that is sure to impress. Nearly any bathroom decoration and accessory can be purchased in animal print, whether it is zebra, giraffe, leopard or a mix prints. Whether you decide to use animal print sparingly or do your entire bathroom in floor to ceiling leopard, there are several ways you can incorporate this theme into your bathroom.


If you really want to portray your animal print theme in your bathroom, you can do so with the use of wallpaper. You can wallpaper the entire bathroom from floor to ceiling, add a border around the top or bottom of your walls, or even add just one accent wall that boasts animal print. If you would prefer to paint, you also have a number of options. If you are artistic, you can buy or make a stencil and paint animal prints such as zebra stripes or giraffe spots on your wall. If you're looking for a more subtle wall that will complement the animal print in the rest of your bathroom, paint the walls a neutral colour that will coordinate with your animal print of choice.


Large and small bathrooms alike can benefit from artwork. You can use animal photographs and frame and hang them on the wall, or even use African-themed artwork that may incorporate your animal print. Hang animal print plates on the walls or place them on wall-mounted shelves. If you have ample space in your bathroom, you can place a decorative animal print vase in a corner, or mount it on a shelf on the wall.


Most everyday bathroom accessories can be found with a touch of animal print or in a complete animal print pattern. Animal print accessories are a great way to get your theme across if you don't want to paint or wallpaper your wall in animal prints. If you have a large bathroom, a large animal print rug can act as a statement piece for your bathroom and fill up an empty-looking room. Shower curtains with animal print are also another great statement piece to help fill bathrooms. Toothbrush holders, tissue holders, cups, wastebaskets and toilet brush holders are also available in animal print. You can also purchase these accessories in neutral, rustic colours that can complement your animal print.

Towels and Linens

Window treatments and towels are also easily found in animal print at several different retailers. Curtains and valances with animal print can be added to windows, but make sure you choose a blind that complements or matches the curtains to keep your bathroom looking cohesive. You can hang towels on your towel bar with animal print or animal print trim on them. If you're worried about too much animal print with your towels, try hanging a larger solid-colour towel with a small animal print hand towel over it. Another option is to roll up several small hand towels and place them in a decorative basket, which is a great option for guests.
