Bathroom Wall Decor

Make your hardworking bathroom as pretty as it is practical with creative decorating accents for bathroom walls. It's easy to punch up the color and style in a bathroom while maintaining its functionality.

Inject Playfulness

Have fun with bathroom wall decor. Vintage posters and advertisements tied to the theme or style of your bathroom are a laid-back way to wake up bathroom walls. This watercolor-style travel advertisement supports the bathroom's existing oceanic theme and its vibrant colors pop against white walls.

Pump Up the Pattern

Play the pattern card in the bathroom with pretty wall decals. These affordable gems are easy to install and come in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes. Some are removable, making the design commitment low and changing the look even easier. Hang small decals in a group to fill a large expanse of wall. Create a customized pattern by arranging decals in groups to suit the angles and shapes of the walls.

Reflect a Playful Style

Jazz up this frequently used bathroom essential with a pretty frame. Replace an existing mirror with a more decorative one, or frame the mirror you already have with painted trimwork. Especially in a powder room, pay less attention to the size of the reflective surface and more attention to the style impact of the frame. Go bold with a mirror frame that's artwork on its own. Tile frames make an exceptionally colorful statement. Look beyond standard bathroom styles to mirrors designed for living spaces. If you find a frame you love, buy unframed mirror glass to tuck inside it. Finish your vanity wall vignette with sconces hung on each side of the mirror.

Blanket a Wall

For bathroom wall decor with more permanence, create a tile accent. Go contemporary with oversize tiles in a rich color. These 4x19-inch tiles are uniformly stacked to create a crisp grid. The simplicity of the pattern is part of its charm. Offset the linear look with a few curves, such as an oval mirror or cylindrical wall sconces. If you'd rather not cover an entire wall with tile, design a tile wainscoting or accent band around the room or along a single wall.

Create Tile Art

Conversely, use petite tiles for an intricate display. Get creative with tile orientation for a one-of-a-kind look. Here, subway tiles were laid in a brick pattern vertically rather than horizontally. Rows of square tiles act as stripes spaced between rows of subway tiles. For an extra splurge, a feature mosaic of teardrop-shape tiles creates a focal point above the tub. The curved shapes and serene colors also provide the eyes a resting point amid a sea of angular tiles. This kind of intricate pattern also works well as a backsplash above a vanity.

Infuse Color

For a soothing bathroom with a pop of color, artwork can add just the right amount of zing. Consider a piece of artwork that reflects the colors already in the bathroom (the wall color, tub and shower surrounds, vanity, etc.) but has hints of a contrasting hue. Bathrooms are humid places; choose artwork that won't be damaged by moisture. Once you find the right piece, repeat the contrasting color at least one more time within the room. Here, the coral from the painting is repeated on the small ottoman.

Highlight the Angles

Use awkwardly angled bathroom walls to your advantage as prime real estate for wall art. Arrange a series of prints or canvases vertically on a narrow, angled wall. Tiny wall spaces in bathrooms are ideal for groupings of small art pieces. Vertical presentation can also draw the eye upward, creating a sensation of spaciousness within tight quarters.
