Decorations to Hang in a Bathroom


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.

Vintage Display

  • 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.

Modern Artwork

  • 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.
