Hanging pictures in a bathroom. Why not?

Create a focal point the bathroom by hanging a picture above the towel rack

Every room in your house can be beautifully decorated, including the bathroom. Create a focal point by hanging pictures over the towel bar.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Display one large piece or a combination of pieces that are at least 2/3 or equivalent to the towel bar’s width.
  • Center your artwork with the towel bar.
  • Placement is important. Don’t hang your art too close to the bar as it could get damaged every time you reach for a towel but don’t hang it so high that it’s floating on the wall.
  • Humidity: Art’s Worst Enemy Humidity from hot showers and baths can damage your artwork so choose pieces that can easily be replaced, or are moisture-proof.

Use the right hardware

  • Safety is key when hanging a piece with glass in the bathroom. Be sure it’s fastened securely to avoid an accident.
  • Alternatively, replace the glass in the frame with plexiglass which is more impact resistant.
  • Place Anchor Points on the bottom corners of your frame to keep it in place and straight.
