Bathroom Canvas Art - How to Do It Right

user iconby Gvido Grubeclock icon5 Minutescalender icon2024-01-31

Bathroom canvas art has lately become somewhat of a trend. But - there are a few things to consider before jumping on the bandwagon!

People naturally want to exhibit their favorite photos in as many different places as possible - including the bathroom, the kitchen, even the sauna! However, going for less conventional spots also presents a fair share of risks, all of which we’ll address in this article.

Following Up:

Can You Put a Canvas in the Bathroom? In Short - Yes. But...

A traditional canvas print consists of a wooden framework with canvas fabric stretched taut across it. If you buy a good-quality canvas print, the raw materials used should come from carefully chosen sources, and the canvas should have gone through careful processing. But this still won’t make it completely invulnerable to the conditions in which it’s kept – the example here being an unusually humid environment.

Generally speaking, it's okay to display your canvas prints in the bathroom, but you should avoid putting your canvas art too close to the source of humidity. As long as your canvas is a fair distance away from the bath or shower, it will last a good number of years.

However, the question is whether you want to enjoy it for only a good number of years or experience the full archival quality of our prints

Sure, the combination of high-quality spruce wood and tough canvas cloth (canvas being one of the most durable fabrics produced) makes for a hard-wearing photo print. But you can expect that both wood and fabric will suffer some consequences if they’re kept long-term in a humid environment. And that’s regardless of any “protective layer” claims made by the seller.

To be clear though – the combination of premium-quality materials and UV-proof inks used for every print provides you with a wall decor piece of truly outstanding quality. If it’s stored under regular conditions, you can expect your photo canvas to last for decades looking just as it did upon arrival.

Your print will put up very stiff resistance to the ravages of time wherever it’s kept – but there’s no guarantee that it will last as long if it’s stored in a damp environment. So before you display any canvas print in the bathroom, decide how much you’re prepared to compromise on durability.

Can You Protect Your Canvas By Hanging It as Far as Possible from the Source of Humidity?

If you’re lucky enough to have a palatial bathroom, good for you. But even keeping the widest distance possible between your print and the source of humidity won’t completely eliminate the risks. The fact is, steam spreads pretty quickly.

A more effective way to delay the deterioration process is to leave a gap between the back of the canvas and the wall, thus ensuring a constant flow of air between the two. This will prevent the moisture from getting trapped behind the canvas, which often happens when canvas prints are hung flush to the wall.

But for those of you who are determined to grace your bathroom walls with your own precious photos but who want to minimize the potential for damage, it’s worth thinking about another solution…

Formats Such As Acrylic Prints are Built to Endure Tough Conditions

If there’s one thing that’s made to resist high moisture levels, it’s glass. Luckily, has no shortage of products that are covered with this plucky substance. A case in point – photo acrylic prints.

An alternative to canvas available at only a slightly higher price, the acrylic print sees your photo shielded by a sheet of hardened plexiglass that’s both water and UV resistant. And the format offers more than exceptional performance – it’s visually stunning too. As well as enhancing the original colors of your photo, acrylic glass provides an eye-catching sheen which completes the format’s irresistible premium look.

With its sophisticated gloss effect, acrylic glass is the go-to option if you want to make your bathroom feel more personal and cozy. Meticulously cut and polished, radiant from any angle, it makes the perfect alternative to hanging canvas prints in the bathroom.
