Add a Trendy Touch
Show your guests that you’re ahead of the trends. Wall art can give your bathroom a current look without taking up much space. Hang a print that is modern, abstract, and elevates the contemporary appearance of your bathroom. Keep your clutter to a dull roar to maintain focus on the piece of art. Other current bathroom trends include minimalist labeling, indoor greenery, and soft lighting.
Geometric Wall Art
Curated by our art director, Tirzah Goodman, consider our highly anticipated “Geometric Sets” collection. These multi-dimensional prints are perfect for adding a fashionable touch to your guest bathroom. Plus, they come in a wide variety of colors, so they can easily blend with a range of décor.
For another trendy collection curated by Tirzah Goodman, consider a personalized print. Why choose an ordinary piece of artwork when you can create a custom piece? Our new collection of personalized quotes lets you curate a one-of-a-kind interior. Your guest or half bathroom is the perfect place to add a custom print. Make a statement with a single piece, and put your personal touch on your guest-friendly space. Guests love a space that feels homey. Create the perfect mix of private and welcoming with a custom piece of artwork. Plus, you don’t have to sacrifice humor! While we’ll expand on the benefits of adding a playful piece to your bathroom, it's always important not to take your house too seriously - especially a space that has a lot of foot traffic. Plus, typography is super trendy for 2022. Combine typography with a cheeky design and a personal touch, and you can’t go wrong!
Decide whether you want your custom print to look classic or casual. It all depends on the current décor you have in your half-bath. If your space is feeling empty, a framed or multi-panel print will add a dynamic touch. If your bathroom is already full of statement pieces like vases and other high-end details, switch it up with something more casual! Try one of our brand-new posters for a chill, unpretentious look. Hang your wall art in any area that seems lacking. The area above your toilet is a foolproof space to fill with artwork – especially a lighthearted, personalized piece.
Don’t Shy Away from Color
Speaking of color, modern isn’t necessarily synonymous with neutral. Because your guest bathroom is an isolated space, you don’t have to worry about the color palette matching the rest of your interior. Feel free to experiment with playful colors like bright blue, pink, and yellow. You want your guests to feel welcome, and color can give your space a casual feel. Stark white can tend to feel sterile, so at least a hint of color is ideal. Hang a piece of wall art for a simple way to incorporate vibrant hues.
Entertain Your Guests
Just like a playful color scheme can delight your guests, a lighthearted print can have a similar effect. Hang a piece of wall art that doesn’t take itself too seriously. This will set your guest bathroom apart from the rest, and make your friends and family crack a smile. Pair an irreverent print with classy details like fresh flowers and scented candles for the perfect balance. A grown-up space doesn’t mean it has to be boring!
Cheeky Décor Ideas
If you’re a frequent host, consider a multi-panel print with cheeky rules. While these pieces of wall art are fun and sassy, they’re also a great way to subtly lay down the law. These are some of our best-selling prints, and for good reason! You can’t go wrong with funny typography with a practical purpose. Hang this wall art on any empty wall that needs vision dimension. This is also a great way to add a lively look if you want an alternative to a pop of color.
Involve the Five Senses
Last but not least, it’s imperative to incorporate the five senses into your guest bathroom – no matter how small. Even if your bathroom lacks a tub or shower, getting ready in the bathroom should be a sensorial, spa-like experience. Incense and potpourri can automatically make your bathroom feel sophisticated. You should also capitalize on soft textures, and don’t skimp on luxe textiles. Remember, touch is just as important as sight and smell! While taste may be the last sense on your mind when it comes to bathroom décor, you can offer your guests complementary toothpaste, mints, and even mouthwash for a thoughtful touch!
