Wallpaper in Bathroom?

With my bathroom torn apart to replace the subfloor, I'm thinking ahead to when I put everthing back together again. What is everyone's thoughts on putting vinyl wallpaper in the bathroom? It has to be durable enough to withstand moisture and Phoenix summer heat in excess of 110 degrees. Am I better off just painting the bathroom walls instead?

Painting the bathrom properly, carries no risk.

Wallpaper, great risk of failure.

I would go with paint. I live in the humid south and keeping wall paper on the plaster walls of a house is challenge enough.

Wallcovering properly applied will not come loose until you want it too. This is a subject that everyone seems to have an opinion on and mostly it derives from their grandmother's home or a session with a steamer loosening layers of old wallpaper. Todays product is designed to withstand high heat, humidity, cold, and dry environments. The trick is to follow the manufacturer's directions. When did your neighbor know better than the people who actually made the product? Do not add paste to a pre-pasted product, do use a good quality wall primer which is compatible with your wallcovering. Don't follow the big box clerk's advice go to a real store where they have knowledgeable sales people. I have wallcovering in our kitchen area, and bath. It looks great and does not come off the wall. The wall is more washable, will not absorb grease and best of all when we tire of the pattern it is dry strippable.
Good luck to you.
