Bathroom wall decor ideas are not the first thing that comes to mind when we think of decorating our homes. And yet, it can be such an enjoyable experience...especially in the kids bathroom!
Making baby bath time a fun experience needs more than buying rubber duckies and themed towels. You need to seriously consider bathroom wall art.
The market is teeming with a wide range of wall decals, art prints, bathroom tiles and more – bathroom decor ideas galore.
From rubber duckie decals for babies to fun writings for teens, the bathroom can truly reflect your decorating style and your child's whims.
A bath themed art print can enliven the bathroom in an instant. You have to be careful though; as bathroom spaces are usually small, a too big art poster might make it look even smaller. You might prefer to go for 1 or 2 small size bathroom posters.
Before you even begin your shopping for bathroom wall art, you need to know how much space you have available. The bathrooms are small spaces, and you first need space for towel rods, clothes hooks, perhaps shelves or other storage options. This does not leave a lot of space for the beautiful wall art you want to bring in.
Knowing how much wall space you have to work with will help you determine the size and style of art you want to be looking for.
Sometimes, a big artwork can make a big statement; and sometimes smaller pieces are more proportionate.
Often our own bathrooms become our sanctuaries from the chaos around us. If you are looking for a space to claim as your own, a space where your family understands you need to be left alone, a space that brings back your joy and your energy...check out my guide that will help you do all of that.
Made you Smile :) Come on, how cute is this decal and the perfect spot to put it on.
Wall decals are the best thing to happen to kids room decor. (I do believe I have mentioned this before.) They are easy to put up and reposition...and take off when you are bored with them...and get new ones without breaking the bank.
And they are available in such amazing varieties and vivid colors that they spruce up the look of any room within minutes. Not all wall decals need to go on walls. The entire bathroom is your canvas.
The one thing that holds us back from bathroom art is the thought that they might get spoilt with all the moisture and humidity that abounds in the bathroom.
If you are in the same boat, try metal art instead. In the kids bathroom you need to fit pieces that are colorful and vibrant. Don't go for subtle or elegant here – you need cheerful and lively. And think outside the box - don't just search for bathroom wall art. Why not consider garden decor? Anything that is meant to withstand the elements outside, would work wonderfully well in the bathroom.
And if you really like something and is not in the color of your choice...spray paint away!!
If your bathroom serves dual purpose for kids and guests, you might not want the rubber ducky or Disney theme. Here too these metal art pieces would do the trick.
"Happiness is a long bubble bath", "Objects in the mirror are skinnier than they appear", "Wash your Hands, Mom said so",...
Sometimes all it takes is the right word to give the room the right feel. Add humor for a smile to start the day. I love words and I find they truly affect my mood. So I like to surround myself with humor and motivation. You don't have to even go out and look for something that speaks to your heart.
If you are the artsy diy kind of person, you could create such works of art yourself. Head over to your local hobby / art and crafts store. All you need is a picture frame and a printed sheet of paper of what you want it to say. Like the art I created above. Yes, it is that simple.
Pick wooden letters in different shapes and sizes to create words such as ‘SPLASH’ or ‘BRUSH – FLUSH – WASH’. Let your imagination be your guide. Now paint them as you wish.
Simple paintings with bathtubs or any water related activities would just as well spruce up the otherwise boring bathroom walls.
My daughter drew a ship on the water with her color markers (many moons ago). I painted a regular dollar store frame in a fun upbeat color and put the drawing in there to create a personal touch to my own bathroom!
You can do the same. Not only do you get one-of-a-kind art, your child will be so excited to know that their art is being displayed. Works like a charm to boost their confidence and their joy.
Waterproof tile stickers are just what the bathroom asks for when you want to add a special effect to your bathroom!
Again, I invite you to think outside the box. You don't have to use it as regular tile. Add it inside a tall frame to create one of a kind art; Use it as a backdrop to showcase other art; or cut out to highlight certain areas of the bathroom, like just behind the towel rod or the mirror.
A gorgeous window film in lovely colors give your bathroom both privacy and a color. With the sunlight filtering in, the glow is something that will give a spa like feel to your bathroom.
You don't have to cover the entire window, if you like the idea of natural light coming in unfiltered. Cover the lower half of the window only. There are many designs to choose from. But when you are thinking of your child's bathroom, do go for something that is more vibrant and colorful.
These are super easy to install and to remove, when the day comes.
Tip: When you are choosing a design (for any space), don't just think of the print or the pattern or the color. Of course they matter, but the most important consideration should be how it makes you feel.
