You’ve mastered that pesky living room gallery wall and finally selected a beautiful piece of art for the dining nook, but what about your bathroom? There’s a good chance your bathroom walls might be feeling a little plain these days, and you just don’t know where to begin.

The good thing is that you can’t really go wrong, whether you’re looking to hang a wall full of photos or keep the decor minimal. We’ve pulled inspiration from several outstanding past home tours that will get your gears turning in no time!

1. Gallery Glamour

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, and a gallery wall in your bathroom will leave guests speechless. Whether you like uniformed grids or free-spirited walls, this design trick won’t disappoint. Go ahead frame those vacation photos you’ve been meaning to post or hang an artful print from a flea market. And if you want to take your new bathroom gallery wall to the next level, add some plants to the mix à la this maximalist pad.

2. Chalk it Up

Why write messages on the bathroom stall when you can share notes and drawings on a chalkboard wall like this one? This would be super cute in a child’s space—featuring friendly reminders like “wash your hands” and “brush your teeth!”—but we think adult visitors would get a kick out of it, too. Let this Oakland abode inspire your next DIY project.

5. Energetic Eclectism

As this UK rental proves, you don’t need a big space to make a statement. If your home is eclectic and full of color and life, why stop in the bathroom? This small room is full of sassy prints, photos, and even a macrame hanging.
