Design: Art in the Bathroom

Today I’m wondering which of the following two bathrooms you prefer.

Option 1 – What do you think of the gallery wall in this bathroom? The wall is packed floor-to-ceiling with colourful artistic goodness, but the rest of the bathroom is simple and white.

Option 2: This bathroom has two small pieces of art that are simply framed and placed above the mid-height tiled walls.

Thoughts? What kind of art do you have in your bathroom? I opted for a full-on Rorschach gallery wall in my upstairs bathroom and it’s doing a good job distracting me from the too-grey-for-me tub surround and floor.

    I’m a fan of a gallery wall in bathrooms – mostly because it’s unexpected 🙂

    I prefer the second bathroom – I feel like it’s more relaxing. My bathroom is mostly white with a black & white subway-tile floor. The only artwork (it’s a small bathroom) is a colourful tile from the Cinque Terre.

      Small bathrooms might require smaller pieces of art. Space is at a premium, but at least you managed to put something beautiful in there!
