Perhaps even more so than bedrooms, the bathroom is all about personal space and solitude. From soaking in a 20 minute hot bath to shaving and answer nature's call, bathroom time is strictly your private time. While bathrooms are probably not the first place that comes to mind when it comes to hanging wall art, it can be done tastefully and enhance your bathroom experience. If you're reading this article then I'm guessing that you're either deciding to purchase bathroom art for the first time, you're looking for new ideas, have recently remodeled or you just moved and ready to make a house a home. Regardless of where you are in the art buying process I'll provide some bathroom art ideas here and share some of my favorite fine art prints.
Top Bathroom Art Ideas
Your choice of bathroom art should reflect your personality. You may prefer certain colors over the others or if you want to be playful or cute then maybe wildlife photography suits your taste. Here are some top bathroom art ideas to help you decide.
The main challenge with most art substrates when it comes to the bathroom is the moisture. You simply can't hang certain types of artwork in the bathroom as it would be ruined as soon as the bath or shower comes on. Fortunately there is an option that is perfect for moist and high-humidity environments such bathrooms. ChromaLuxe metal prints utilize a special technology called dye-sublimation which involves infusing the inks directly into the aluminum at high temperatures. The print is permanently a part of the metal and there is zero risk of damage due to getting wet. ChromaLuxe metal prints can be hung with the "frameless" presentation style with rear-mounted framing or with external frames such as this floater frame shown above. In addition to aesthetics, another benefit of having external framing is protection. Bathrooms can be a bit more limited in space than a living room for example so you might opt for an external frame over the frameless look to minimize any potential chipping or scratching. Another option is to go with custom removable wall murals which are made out of vinyl and are designed to handle moisture.
