How to hang art or pictures in a bathroom

We'd like to incorporate some pictures or artwork in our new bathroom but we're not sure what's best with moisture and humidity. Any suggestions?

There are several ways to do it but most of these depends on the size, weight, type of surface, art shape etc. I would suggest to try fixing masses, tapes, adhesives, magnets etc. These don't damage the surfaces. It's quite an advantage.

"I would suggest ensuring the artwork is encased in a glass frame. And frame painted in a water proof/oil based paint.
Also ensure you have an extractor fan fitted to reduce the amount of moisture in the bathroom.

Hope that helps"
