Bathroom Décor Size Guide

The next step on the bathroom wall art checklist is to select your perfect size. Choose the best dimensions for your wall using these tips from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide:

Your chosen artwork should take up approximately 60% to 75% of the overall empty wall space; in other words, the space not covered by any moldings or furniture. The first step is to measure the height and width of your wall. Next, multiply the measurements by 0.6 and 0.75. This equation will give you the range of canvas print sizes to suit your bathroom wall.

Still stumped on sizes? A canvas size that measures 48 inches by 32 inches in height and width looks awesome above a 78-inch vanity or credenza in a large bathroom. Pay attention to the height at which you hang the art. Generally, to achieve the optimal aesthetic, you should place the center of the canvas at eye-level, and no higher! Hang it between 8-10 inches above your vanity or sink to give it some room to breathe.
