Whoever said that the lavatory is strictly a place for “business” was WAY off. This highly trafficked room deserves so much more. In a space that tends to be de-prioritized when it comes to decorating, we’re loving the idea of using artwork to elevate typical bathroom decor. In fact, we’d argue that the bathroom is a perfect place to display art! There’s always a “captive” audience, if you know what we mean.


We’re not suggesting you throw down mad cash for an original masterpiece here, but this is the perfect place to get a little experimental and peruse sources like eBay, Etsy or One Kings Lane for something inexpensive and interesting. If you’re really into this idea, you can even go for a mini gallery wall! In the end, it’s a simple way to give the bathroom the attention it deserves. After all, it’s always been there to help us take care of our dirty work.

What sort of interesting decor have you seen or chosen for a bathroom?? We’d love to hear more Ideas to Steal!

  1. I really love the idea.
    I’m freshing up my bathroom too, so maybe this is something I can do. IF, I find an interesting piece. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Love this idea. One of my friends took photos of kids in thetub with different bath toys and then went to staples and got them enlarged on nice paper for $5 a piece and hung them above the bath tub. The girlshave grown and dont indulge in baths as much but its always something sweet to see when we visit their place 🙂
    Love the inspiration!

  3. I’m an artist / painter – so believe me, I love seeing art everywhere…even, yes, in the loo! I have 3 paintings in my loo, as well as other more sculptural art as well.

  4. Wow, gorgeous bathroom, the all white flooring with all white walls makes for a calming and peaceful space. The picture stands out strong against the white background, I agree that the bathroom is a great place for art and beauty! These are are apartments, http://www.livecalifornian.com
    I plan on remodeling the bathrooms for an all white look like this one. Elegant and Classy.
