It's a really good idea to get the humidity out of your bathroom.  Excess humidity just leads to mold and mildew.  Think about installing a properly sized fan with a timer that allows it to run 15-20 minutes after bathing.  The fan needs to exhaust outside, not into attic space.

You could tile the walls although from a personal design perspective, I don't like the appearance of floor to ceiling tile.  Wood would be another option, again I'm less than keen on a floor to ceiling approach.  There's always FRP, you've seen it countless public restrooms.  It's tough, easily cleaned, and a breeze to install.  Ok, I was just kidding with that suggestion.

What were your thoughts?

Hey Baba!

Adam is among our best Community Members when it comes to outstanding advice!

Couldn't agree more ... a proper size exhaust fan should be your number one priority.

Once you exhaust the humidity, almost any wall coating will look better and last longer.

OPINION:

And I'm not so keen on man-made tile either.

However, I particularly like Travertine and other natural stone used that way.

It is simply a matter of shopping to ID a wall covering you prefer.
