If you want to add visual interest to your plain bathroom wall without hiring a painter, update the walls with eye-catching wall décor. Hang items that add to the overall look of the space; decorative wall hangings can be used to pull together a room or color scheme. Add a splash of color to neutral-hued walls with artwork and framed items.
Pull your favorite antique decorative items out of storage and use them to infuse bathroom walls with elegance and classic appeal. Rework the items for a creative look if possible. Hang black and white family heirloom photos in opulent gold frames as a sentimental touch. Frame unexpected items, such as vintage silk scarves, fabric pieces and magazine advertisements, and display them on a wall. For instance, add sophistication to a deep red or mauve wall with a swatch of antique black and white toile-patterned fabric. Look for magazine ads featuring vintage cosmetics and body care products, such as perfume, soap and lipstick. Hang a vintage wall clock from two pieces of wide satin ribbon; secure the ribbon ends into a bow and suspend the bow from a nail.
Rustic Wrought Iron
Black wrought iron decor pieces will give a bathroom a casual, rustic flavor. Wrought iron wall items can be used to enhance Southwestern, nature-inspired and Tuscan decorating styles. Hang a mirror featuring a lacy wrought iron frame above the sink or vanity table. Install a wrought iron wall shelf and use it to display plants in terra cotta pots; pot cacti for a Southwestern bathroom theme. You can also use the shelf to store rolled, vibrantly colored bath towels to add a pop of color to a wall. Display flat-backed wrought iron sculptures featuring cactus, coyote, pine cone or leaf designs.
Add a modern flair to a bathroom outfitted in a contemporary style with colorful abstract artwork. Choose pieces featuring geometric designs and vibrant primary colors. Hang unframed canvas paintings for a minimalistic approach. If you choose to frame the pieces, use black metal or shiny silver frames to complement the look. As a meaningful touch, ask your child to paint a whimsical and abstract bird, flower or animal picture using red, green, yellow and blue acrylic paints.
