Can canvas prints be hung in the bathroom?

We are often asked whether you can put canvas prints in the bathroom and the answer is yes if you are careful with the selection. A well-made canvas print, i.e. not cheap in China or India prints, can be hung in the bathroom as they will be covered in an invisible laminate that will protect against the water, additionally the timber will be kiln-dried and able to fend off against moist environments, however if you want to go one step further and you have a very damp bathroom we can actually print on a special canvas that provides even further protection for the artwork against damp, feel free to contact us if you are looking for this.
