Hanging bathroom pictures is a great way to spice up a boring bathroom. Here are 5 simple steps.

Step 1 - Consider Your Options

The first thing to consider is that you can hang pictures in your bathroom in much the same way as you would in any other room of your home. Although wall space tends is at a premium in bathrooms because of their size, hanging pictures occurs in much the same way as other rooms of the home, unless there are special circumstances, such as a bathroom that is completely tiled wall to wall.

Step 2 - Wall to Wall Pictures

Choose an accent wall and cover it in bright pictures, postcards, or other accent pieces. Make sure that you are keeping everything else relatively simple, because a single accent wall is typically enough color. Consider keeping the remainder of the bathroom a toned down color, or white. Keep the toned-down color in mind when choosing your accent wall, since the accent wall will be completely colored and everything else will be completely plain.

Step 3 - Choose Bright Paintings

If you have plain colored or white walls, choose bright paintings to enliven the room. Bright, contrasting colors are a great way to add artwork to the walls in your bathroom that will stand out and garner attention. Use the color wheel to determine contrasting colors and tones when choosing paintings to assist you.

Step 4 - Use Other Colors

Include colors from all of your bathroom. If your bathroom has a specific color that works well, make sure to tie that color in within the artwork as well. For example, if your room is neutral with shades of pink, try for some specifically pink artwork. If you have a black and burgundy colored bathroom, then artwork featuring the black and burgundy colors would be a good idea as well.

Step 5 - Emulate Other Style Considerations

If your walls are tiled or striped, your artwork should also be tiled or striped. If your walls are shell pink in color, consider adding shell themed artwork to your walls in your bathroom. Try to keep one single theme in your bathroom. Arrange your photos and other artwork in your bathroom with a specific theme in mind because it allows you to match different styles and theme elements.
