Tips on How to Display Art in Your Bathrooms

Your bathroom is a place in your home where you can relax and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Adding artwork to the space can help transform it into a serene oasis. Whether it's a painting, a framed print, or a sculpture, a piece of art in your bathroom can help turn it into a true haven.

Here, Roboto Ruggliotti shares some tips on how you can display art in your bathrooms:

Go for Soft, Subtle Artwork for a More Cosy Feel

When choosing art for your bathroom, go for pieces that are soft and cosy rather than bold and in-your-face. This will help you achieve a more relaxing atmosphere in the room.

Choose Art that Reflects Your Style

Select pieces that reflect your style. After all, this is your space, and you want to be surrounded by things you love.

So if you're an abstract art fan, choose a few pieces you love and display them prominently in your bathroom. Or, if you prefer more traditional art, hang a painting or print that you've always loved.

Don't Be Scared to Mix and Match Art Styles

One of the great things about art is that there are no rules as to what you can and can't display together. So don't hesitate to mix and match various art styles in your bathroom.

You could, for example, hang colourful art above your sink and a modern photograph next to your bathtub. Or, you could display a set of vintage prints in a cluster on one wall and a contemporary painting on another.

Consider the Size of Your Bathroom

When hanging art in your bathroom, it's essential to consider the size of the space. If you have a small bathroom, you'll want to choose smaller pieces of art that won't overpower the room.

Larger bathrooms, on the other hand, can handle more prominent pieces. And if you have a huge bathroom, you may even want to consider hanging a series of prints or a bold modern art piece to create a real statement.

Try a Gallery Wall

If you're looking for a way to add a touch of art to your bathroom, a gallery wall may be the perfect option. This type of display consists of a series of framed art pieces or photographs arranged in a grid-like pattern. Not only will your bathroom look stylish, but the wall will also provide a bit of visual interest.

To create your own bathroom gallery wall, begin by selecting a focal point. This could be a large piece of art or a grouping of smaller pieces. Once you've chosen the focal point, begin arranging the other pieces around it.

Think About What Goes Well With Your Bathroom Theme 

When displaying art in your bathroom, think about what goes well with your bathroom's overall theme. For example, if your bathroom has a nautical theme, you might want to display artwork that features sailboats or seascapes. Or, if your bathroom has a rustic theme, you might want to show artwork that features landscapes or animals.

Choose Water-Resistant Artwork

Since bathrooms are typically humid environments, it makes sense to choose water-resistant artwork. This way, you can be sure that the moisture in the air will not damage your artwork. Some good choices for water-resistant artwork include paintings that have been varnished or sealed or prints that have been laminated.


Art can add colour and life to an otherwise dull space and help you relax while taking a break from your busy day. Keep these tips in your mind if you're considering adding some art to your bathroom. Choose wall art prints and other artwork you love that makes you feel good, and don't be afraid to experiment!
