The bathroom is a tricky place to hang wall art. The steam, moisture and various spray items that circulate around in the air make decorating the bathroom walls challenging. But you can rise to the challenge and decorate those blank spaces with these wall art ideas for bathroom walls.
Anything goes for bathroom décor, it just needs to be made from, or covered by, some type of material that is impervious to moisture. That can include photos of family, children’s art work and even expensive paintings. Scan and print photos, then have them laminated to keep them from being damaged by the bathroom environment. Mat and frame the laminated photos and proudly display them on your bathroom wall. Do the same for children’s art work and paintings when possible. When it’s not possible for a painting, consider less expensive reproduction prints for use as bathroom wall art.
You can forgo paper-based decorative material all together and opt for porcelain plates, decorative ceramic tiles or any wall hangings created from glass or ceramic. The pieces do not necessarily have to be made to hang on the wall to be used as wall art, use your creative imagination when looking at objects to use as wall décor. A vintage window with hand painted panes or a stained glass window hanging on the wall adds a decorative element and gives the illusion of real window in the room. You can even frame the faux window with curtains for another decorative layer.
Anything made from fabric will work well as wall art in the bathroom. Fabric can take the moisture and chemical sprays, then withstand several launderings to look good as new again.
Items do not have to be placed on the wall to be decorative. Large mirrors behind the counter are great places for displaying treasures, just use self-adhesive hangers designed to cling to mirrored surfaces and you can turn a plain, boring mirror into a decorative piece of wall art by ‘framing’ the mirror’s perimeter with personal and/or ornamental items.
Tiled bathroom walls are not off-limits for hanging wall art either. Put down the hammer and nails so you won’t ruin the tiles and use self-adhesive hangers designed for use on tile. Large, vacant tile spaces beg for some type of decoration and self-adhesive hangers allow you to display anything you desire as bathroom wall art on these open spaces. Stencils and decals can also be applied to any bathroom surface for pretty up the space.
