Is it necessary to paint textured wallpaper, particularly in a bathroom? Painting is recommended by the manufacturer. I have been advised that it is absolutely necessary to paint since the papers are porous and others advise that painting is optional.

I would follow manufacterers recomendations for sure, if you like the color, take a peice to the paint store and have them match it.


There are so many wallpaper companies out there, it depends on the perticular paper as to whether it should be painted or not, the best bet would be following there specs, if it does take in moisture you will be chanceing it peeling off.
