Find Wall Art for your Bathroom

While it might seem an unlikely room, the bathroom is one of our favorite places to hang wall art. The often-overlooked walls of your powder room or ensuite offer a unique opportunity to showcase your style and creativity. Sprucing up your bathroom with a small painting or hanging a print is one of the easiest ways to add a “designer” quality to your home. Whether you opt for a vibrant abstract piece, a serene landscape, or a quirky print, art can completely transform the vibe of your bathroom.

Wall art in the bathroom isn’t just about aesthetics; it can evoke emotions, create a focal point, and even help set the tone for your entire home’s decor.

Additionally, the bathroom’s intimate setting allows you to experiment with different styles and themes that you might not use elsewhere in your home. From vintage botanical prints to modern geometric designs, there are endless possibilities to explore. Don’t be afraid to have fun with it—use this space to express your personality and creativity.

What kind of artwork is good for a bathroom?

Here are 3 things to think about when choosing art for your bathroom:

  1. Practicality: Choose art that’s been professionally framed with a sealed back (psst! That’s all of our art!) to keep it safe from humidity.
  2. Go small: Intimate rooms call for an intimate size. Not only is it more likely to fit, but it encourages you to get up close to see the details.
  3. Audience: Who uses your bathroom? If it’s a kids’ bathroom, maybe consider playful art. For your principle bath, create a spa-like vibe with art that soothes you.


Where can you hang art in the bathroom?

Any place in your bathroom will work, maybe just avoid inside the shower. Here are a few of our favorites:

  1. Above the toilet: Make use of that blank wall space!
  2. Next to the mirror: You can admire it while you’re brushing your teeth.
  3. Propped on a shelf: If you have open shelving in your bathroom, consider tucking in a small art piece to add depth and intrigue.



Is the bathroom your morning or evening place? For some of us, there’s nothing better than the morning sunshine streaming in and mixing with colorful art — this bright combination can energize the entire day. For those of you seeking an evening retreat, draw inspiration from the soothing effects of water: choose art and hues of blue or images of reclining figures to create a relaxed atmosphere. If there’s a free-standing tub and the walls near it are protected from water, stretched canvas can be placed where you can see it while soaking, or set a very large piece on the floor to lean on the wall. Even several small pieces on a shelf can have an impact and be easily moved or changed to suit your mood. If there’s a wall by the sink with a bit of space, consider a pair of lush botanicals that remind you of fresh air and nature. The bathroom, with its limited space, is still a great room to get creative when placing wall art.
