ADD TO YOUR DECOR WITH BATHROOM WALL ART
Often overlooked, there is no reason the bathroom should feel less decorative and chic than the rest of the house. Whether you’re decorating the master bathroom or guest bathroom, beautiful and colorful framed bathroom wall art is a pleasant touch. Minted has thousands of original fine art selections from artists around the world and we have curated this special collection of designs that you can use as a starting point as you decorate your commode. You will discover that bathroom art is an easy way to spruce up or change the look of a bathroom without heavy lifting and plus, it’s fun! Who knows, you may find something you love for the laundry room, too.
WHAT KIND OF ART CAN YOU HANG IN THE BATHROOM?
The simple answer is anything that catches your eye! But if you’re looking for recommendations and common practices, here are some things to consider when looking to choose bathroom wall decor:
Framed Prints vs Canvas: An important thing to consider is whether your bathroom has a shower or tub and what ventilation is like. The humidity from steam and water can potentially over time cause a canvas piece to develop mold or mildew if left unchecked. When selecting a framed print, using a metal frame is recommended because it can endure big temperature changes in your bathroom.
Small vs. Large: The artwork in any room should be proportional to the room itself. Most bathrooms tend to be the smallest rooms in the house, so a smaller piece of art might make the most sense. If you have a large bathroom, consider larger statement pieces if you like. Luckily, Minted’s art comes in all sizes so you have plenty of options to choose from.
Choosing the Ideal Color: Just like it’s a best practice to tie living room art in with the existing colors of furniture or curtains, bathroom art should complement other colors in the room. Are colored tiles used near the sink or in the shower? Are there certain colors predominant with the towels? Take this color palette into consideration when selecting your art.
Placement: Where should you hang your wall decor? There are many stylish ways to place your artwork. Consider placing your art in a location that can be appreciated as you enter or exit the room as a nice touch. You could also style it so that when looking in the mirror you appreciate the design in the reflection. This way when you or guests are washing hands or doing makeup, they get to experience the unique artwork.
ABOUT MINTED ARTISTS
Minted’s community of independent artists derive from all 50 states and over 100 countries. And while they have a variety of training and skill sets - some with professional experience and others who are self-taught - they were all selected because of their talented handmade designs. You will also find that Minted’s relationship with artists is personal. Each artist has an online store on the site where you can view their other work and learn more about them, their methods, and inspiration before you purchase. Know that your selection is not one that will be found in many homes, as our artwork is limited to only 350 prints per size and colorway.
LOOKS AND THEMES TO CONSIDER WHEN STYLING A BATHROOM
Shades of Blue: Blue is a color we naturally associate with the bathroom - whether it’s because of showers and baths or nautical notions. Regardless of the theme you’re going for, we have designs that display the rich blue ocean, colorful coastlines, and cool turquoise lakes. Alternatively, choose handmade pattern work that includes interpretive abstract brushstrokes in deep blues or hues of blue-green. Consider arranging small diptychs or triptychs sharing the same color tones.
