Good Questions: Will Humidity Ruin Bathroom Photos?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

Inspired by the beautiful work that Calvin Tsao and Zack McKown did for the Wheatleigh Hotel in Lenox, I’ve been redoing my bathroom. Alas, my bathroom doesn’t have the generous proportions of the Wheatleigh’s; at about 8′ by 6′, I’m wondering if it’s too small a room in which to hang framed photographs. I have put in good ventilation, but I’m worried that the room is small enough and the humidity will be high enough that any image will be rapidly blotted out by advancing waves of mildew.

Does anyone have any tips for framing photographs for this sort of setting? Any other suggestions for appropriate bathroom wall art?

Thanks, J.
