Bathrooms Deserve Decor Too! Picture Frame Ideas for Your Bathroom

Mar 23, 2023

March 21, 2023

When it comes to decorating, a bathroom can seem like a challenging place to find inspiration. They can be on the small side, awkwardly shaped and often with little wall space for decor. A few minor changes mixed in with some creativity can liven things up in no time. It's a great place to dip your toe into interior design, have some fun and try a new look. Being that bathrooms are often a small, separate part of your home, it's an easy place to try a bold color palette or an Antiqued frame without detracting from other décor themes in your home! So, check out these fresh new picture frame ideas for your bathroom, that will surely add vibrance to a usually overlooked opportunity for home décor.

Rustic and Natural Picture Frames for A Coastal Vibe

Whether you live close to the beach or not, adding a splash of coastal décor to your bathroom makes any latrine feel like an oasis. Try pairing a Rustic or Natural Picture Frame with a Canvas Print, such as bright and lively coral or a more neutral palette of watercolor seashells with a gorgeous Wood Grain picture frame. These bright ideas for livening up your walls, will surely bring the beach to you; and your loo!

Inspire with Black Picture Frames to Add Zen to Your Lavatory!

Though we spend a significant amount of time in other places in our home like our kitchen or living room, we can also find refuge in our rest (operative word here) room. Little touches of funny “potty – talk” can also add character to your walls.

Adding quotes like “Wash Your Worries Away", or one geared towards the kiddos perhaps, “Potty Like a Rock Star,” printed on a Canvas Print and framed in a classic Black Picture Frame, will surely add decorative flair to your bathroom walls. Start, and end, your day right with a rejuvenating space that feeds and refreshes your soul.


Botanical Prints on Canvas Floaters For When Nature’s Calling

Warm, neutral colors are in for 2023 bathroom décor and incorporating them into your walls with Canvas Floater Frames, or our timeless Scandinavian frames will add natural beauty to your washroom. Nature evokes calm, rest and a spirit of renewal and there is nowhere better to display these feelings than in your home. Try using a Canvas Floater Frame in Natural Classic Wood, paired with a botanical boho print and hang it above your bathtub or toilet, sprucing up this otherwise utilitarian space. Framing neutral abstract canvas art with our Rustic picture frames can also bring the word outside, in.

Ornate and Gold Frames to Pump up Your Powder Room

There are no rules when it comes to bathroom décor and the space that is home truly represents your individual personality. Gold is a classic color choice, no matter where you place it and incorporating its' elegance into the restroom is not out of the question. Pairing an Ornate or Gold picture frame with any floral, landscape or black and white art piece will blend luxury with intrigue to your space. What's so great about there being no rules, means you can go a little wild and add multiple frames, creating a gallery wall for your john!

This especially matches with Victorian era, Traditional or Midcentury styled bathrooms. Pro tip, match your picture frame colors to a hardware finish, say a vanity light or sink to create a perfectly put together look!

Looking for Art

You might have a stash of prints and pieces from flea markets or yard sales you've been meaning to hang, but if you don't, no worries! The New York Public Library has a huge online digital collection of images available for download.

They have thousands of free images – everything from old newspaper clippings, vintage photos (from hundreds of locations), which you can upload to to have framed in a picture frame of your choice. Just go to Upload My Picture on the top of the Homepage and, voila!

Keeping Your Art Safe

Now your bathroom looks like a chic gallery, but that doesn't mean it's not still a bathroom! So, when framing, take steps to make sure your art stays safe and clean. We suggest acid-free mats – otherwise your art can be affected by leeching that occurs over time.

Additionally, be sure to use acrylic rather than glass when framing pieces that you hang in the bathroom. The acrylic lets in more light and is better for your art.

Let's Hang!

Think beyond the obvious, even to the door. No space is too small, not even in the confines of your bathroom. Discover your own unique corner. No matter your choice, however you arrange it, let your authentic self radiate! Share in the comments below or post one of your dynamic décor moves at #FramingJoy.
