Hanging pictures in bathroom – What you should know!
Finding the right art for a bathroom is not always easy. On the one hand, it is not ideal to hang classic picture frames on the wall due to the high humidity. On the other hand, photos or posters can become unattractive wavy and fade over time.
Some providers therefore offer you the possibility to have your desired motif processed using special printing processes so that you can hang them in damp rooms. But first you have to find the right image motif. Especially in the bathroom it is sometimes not so easy to find a suitable motif. Because this is where you primarily want to relax and regenerate in the shower or bathtub.
Hanging artwork in the bathroom can be a bit more complex than elsewhere. Especially in the bathroom, where a large part of the room is tiled, you want to avoid drilling holes as much as possible. Even the do-it-yourselfers among us often dare not drill holes in a tile for fear of damaging it.
The easiest way to hang your artwork on the wall is to use our self-adhesive hangers for art. Our suspension systems are especially suitable for tiled bathroom walls, as you can avoid drilling into tiles.
Our picture hangers to stick on bathroom tiles
Which pictures are suitable for bathrooms?
I am looking for new artwork for our new bathroom. I would like to hang the picture directly above the bathtub. I have already organised the complete decoration, such as plants, and the atmosphere in my bathroom is now like an oasis of well-being. My bathroom walls are painted in light pastel colours. I just don’t know exactly which type of art is suitable for the bathroom and which material the art should be made of. Canvases made of wood seem to warp quickly due to the high humidity. In the past I also had a photo in a picture frame. When I wanted to clean the picture frame, the picture did not come off the frame because it got wet and stuck. Do you have any tips and ideas which pictures I can hang on the wall in my bathroom?
Many thanks & greetings
These pictures are suitable for bathrooms
Due to the high humidity, not every art is suitable for humid rooms like the bathroom, of course. Ordinary photos, posters and picture frames are very sensitive to water vapor and are therefore not very suitable for the bathroom. The choice of the right wall painting should therefore be well thought out. The high humidity and splashing water can lead to condensation under the glass, especially in the bathroom with classic picture frames. Framed art or artwork are usually leaky, which allows water vapor to penetrate under the glass pane and soften the photo from the inside.
Therefore, if you should decide for glass paintings made of acrylic, you should rather hang up the artwork in the hallway. For these reasons we recommend that you have your pictures mounted on Aluminium prints. Art as direct print on Alu Dibond or Forex plates are particularly durable and resistant and are therefore particularly suitable for the bathroom. Alu Dibond consists of two aluminium plates connected by a plastic core. Due to the temperature, Aluminium prints will neither expand nor contract due to increased humidity and is therefore ideal for bathroom conditions. Due to the special printing process, art on Forex can also be used in damp rooms. Forex art are also very durable and withstand the high humidity in the bathroom.
Our tip: If you don’t want a artwork on a plate or behind acrylic glass, you can also have your work of art printed on canvas. The fabric of a canvas is relatively sensitive to moisture. Some providers therefore offer special protective varnish that prevents the canvas from absorbing moisture. At the same time, the high-quality top coat also protects the canvas image against scratches. Of course, there is no reason at all why a cheap photo or a simple print should not be hung up in the bathroom. As these are rather cheap alternatives, the risk of destroying something valuable and irreplaceable by moisture damage is rather low. When your chosen piece of art is hanging on the wall, you can transform your bathroom into a real wellness area in just a few easy steps. Scented candles create a relaxed atmosphere, fluffy towels and new plants additionally increase the feel-good factor in your bathroom.
