Idea #3: Master the Element of Surprise

Wood isn't often used in baths due to its natural propensity to warp or shrink when confronted with water, but with the proper sealant and right species (such as cedar, teak, or alder), it can be a great alternative to wallpaper or tile. To make sure your look is fresh and modern, go for a super light stain that allows the natural beauty and grain of the wood to shine through.
