3 Ways (and 11 Prints) to Step Up Your Bathroom Game

Anytime you receive a piece of art you aren’t crazy about, people suggest you should hide it away in the bathroom. Well, we disagree. In fact, the bathroom might have the biggest untapped potential for art in your entire home. It’s where you get yourself ready for the world every morning, so shouldn’t it be inspiring? Plus, you spend a good chunk of time in there every day, plenty of it just, um, sitting around, so shouldn’t it be interesting? If you’re with us and ready to step up your bathroom game, we’ve got some ideas of the perfect prints to pretty up your powder room.


Something Beauty-Inspired

If your bathroom counter looks like a Sephora and your medicine cabinet overflow-ith with perfumes and pomades, try filling your bathroom with art that will inspire your morning primping.

Something Cheeky and Nostalgic

For a fun vintage vibe, look for prints inspired by patents, vintage magazine ads, or even pages cut out of beautiful spreads from more recent issues. Another idea: dip into your own history and dig up those old baby photos of you bathing.

Something Intricate and Entertaining

We’re talking pieces that provide information, give you something to read, or just a piece of art that makes you want to study it over and over again.
