4 Ways to Liven Up the Bathroom with Wall Decor
Brighten up this oft-used space with the help of these designer tips
How often do you see artworks in the bathroom? Is it okay to place such pieces in this part of the house in the first place? The answer is YES! You can spruce up your T&B with wall decor. Let these designer tips guide you:
Don't use the uber valuable pieces
While you can be extra creative when it comes to choosing pieces that you can put on display, you can't just hang any piece of art. Interior designer Kristine Neri-Magturo of home store Urban Abode advises against displaying art of considerable value in the bathroom “due to potential moisture damage.”
Opt for bold color and prints
Watercolor, poster color, and exposed oil paintings are not recommended in the bathroom. Kristine suggests adding framed prints or lithographs under glass as these add a classy, luxe vibe.
Keep it away from direct water sources
When decorating with framed wall décor, interior designer Pauline La’O recommends hanging it on a wall that’s away from a direct source of water. “Best if it is far away from the lavatory and the shower area,” she says.
Display your own works of art
Kristine adds, “Consider choosing artwork that is relevant and enjoyed by the ones who will be using each bathroom the most. It can create a more relatable ambiance while showing different themes or personalities in each bathroom, adding charm to the aesthetic narrative of the home.”
Do you have doodles, drawings, and sketches? You can have these framed and displayed in the space. If you're also into coloring, you can choose some of your best outputs and use these as wall decor.
