Beach Themed Bathrooms

1. Seashell And Starfish Shower Curtain

oremila Bathroom Shower Curtain 72" x 72" Seashell Starfish Multi-Color Shower Curtains

Bring the color of the ocean into the bathroom with a shower curtain that features an attractive seashell and starfish pattern. You can play up this pattern by pairing it with bathroom accessories in similar shades. For example, have a blue toothbrush holder and a blue soap dispenser. Then bring in similar beachy colors like golden yellow towels. You want to compliment the theme, not overwhelm people with it so subtle is best when paired with a bright shower curtain.

2. Aqua Shower Curtain

Aqua Blue / Turquoise Watercolor Fabric Shower Curtain for Modern Beach Bathroom

This shower curtain has a cascading pattern featuring a gradual change from one shade of blue to another and the pattern resembles the crashing waves onto the shoreline. The shading in this shower curtain allows you a greater range in which to play with various blues. Another great thing about this shower curtain as well as the fact that the natural light of the bathroom will penetrate through the lighter areas, eliminating the need for a shower light fixture.

3. Shades Of Nature

By painting your ceiling a deep blue, white walls and rafters, beige furniture in the form of wicker baskets and vanity, and then finish the look off with a freestanding tub. This look brings forth beachy vibes without screaming “this is a beach-themed bathroom!” You want to choose décor that can be used in future renovations without needing to replace everything and too much of a good thing can turn your bathroom into a sticky mess – which you definitely don’t want.

4. Floor Mat Set

Effiliv Bathroom Rugs Set 5 Piece Memory Foam Mats + Eva Shower Liner

In a deep brown shade, this bath mat set comes complete with an anti-slip bath mat to prevent potential falls when exiting or entering the shower. One of the leading causes of slips and falls in the bathroom is during the entering or exiting of the shower – this is because a bathmat gets tangled up in a person’s feet and they tend to slip when the mat shifts underneath them. So combine safety and décor with an anti-slip bath mat!

5. Blue Sea Décor Theme

You don’t have to fill your bathroom with seashells or sea animal décor when you are wanting to decorate in a beach or coastal theme. You can use the shades of the beach which is washed with rich and deep blues, beiges, yellows, and greens. The beach isn’t limited to one type of animal or greenery or even seashells; so why should you limit yourself during your decorating extravaganza? Use the solid colors of the beach instead of using the products of the beach.

6. Sea Turtle Bathroom Set

Sea Turtle Shower Curtain Sets with Non-Slip Rugs, Toilet Lid Cover and Bath Mat

This sea turtle set has a bath mat, a shower curtain (with liner!), a toilet lid contour mat, and a toilet lid cover. When you do want to bring coastal animals into your décor, always go with an animal that is cute, resilient, and doesn’t get quite enough love to be frank. People think of the beach and think of marine life – but the beach is the home to hundreds of other animals such as the powerful sea turtle.

7. Wall Art

These seashell canvas paintings bring the coastal and beach theme with subtlety but with a great visual impact. When it comes to decorating, less can definitely be more as evidenced by these amazing prints. You can bring a theme to life by pairing neutral backgrounds (such as sandy-colored walls) with hanging prints of the things you find at the beach. Hang in a straight line for a modern look or you can hang them in descending angles for an artistic one.

8. Shades Of Brown And White

Lots of natural light, stark white background, a deep freestanding tub, and sandy brown curtains transform this bathroom from drab to the beach with ease! Hanging lanterns can be dimmed to resemble the setting sun and the bright, open space looks completely spruced up when little touches, such as bluish décor comes into play.

9. Beachfront Bathroom

To create a beachfront bathroom, you want to use dark wood paneling on the walls in specific areas such as over the sink and vanity paired round mirror. This wood paneling is also a great way to protect your walls from hanging artwork and other decorative objects because you will screw (or nail) into the paneling as opposed to the walls themselves. This makes it easier to change up décor over time and transform your walls when you switch themes.

10. Beach Wall Art

These square wall canvases can be displayed in a singular line, in a descending order, or even placed on different parts of the bathroom wall. They come complete without the need for a matching frame, making canvas wall hangings a minimalist staple when it comes to home makeovers. Another great idea is to get your local photo developing center to create canvas hangings out of photos you took during your recent beach foray.

11. Fish Wallpaper

Just because you are going with a coastal and beach theme in your bathroom, you don’t have to stick to browns and blues for the color. Change it up and use other shades found during beach visits. Think of the waving green seagrass, the horizon being painted in shades of orange, pink, and yellow during both the sunset and sunrise, and of course – the colors of the wildflowers found growing in the sand. All beach shades of color.

12. Beachy Mirror

Want to really bring the beach into your bathroom? Then you want to use subtle detailing such as this hanging round mirror that is surrounded by puffs of material to resemble a seashell. You can create this mirror yourself at home by using fake craft seashells (or real ones picked up from the beach), a hot glue gun, and a wooden frame that can be inserted around the mirror. There are numerous tutorials online that feature all the needed stencils.

13. Mosaic Wall

This stunning visual is created using mosaic art which means numerous tiny pieces make up the images we see. The centerpiece is a bright orange octopus while other members of the sea community make an appearance. With a piece this vibrant and colorful, you want to avoid using a lot of color within the room as it can drown out the mosaic piece you want to display. Choose subtle touches of color that are featured for the best results.

Pristine and fancy doesn’t belong at the beach so why would you have a pristine and sleek vanity in your beach-themed bathroom? You wouldn’t but you would have a vintage, weathered vanity that has open storage space.

An easy way to bring the beach into your bathroom is to redo strips of tiles in your shower to a dreamy blue color. These blue-colored tiles resemble the ocean, especially when the water is gently rushing over them while the shower is in use. They gleam and reflect both natural (and artificial) light, making these tiles a purely visual experience. Keep them clean and shiny with a bathroom tile cleaner that is made from natural ingredients.

16. White And Blue

Varying shades of blue within a bathroom is an excellent way to bring nature into your bathroom. Use deeper shades of blue for furniture to provide a great visual contrast within your bathroom, such as a small table next to the vanity. Contrast nicely within the theme with towels of sandy beige, wicker baskets in natural wood colors (that also provide storage), and blue and beige striped bathroom vanity accessories.

17. Mosaic Tiled Bathroom

Octagon-shaped blue tiles bring a sense of style to your coastal-themed bathroom. Not only is this a definite artistic approach to your bathroom, it definitely a unique approach to your new bathroom. Instead of laying the tiles down in straight lines, which is what everyone does, lay them down in a unique shape such as the octagon. It will definitely bring a sense of artist to your bathroom and fit nicely into your coastal theme. 

18. Ornate Metal Touches

Ornate Metal Touches

When you think of the coast and the beach, you don’t necessarily think about metal but when you think of the high seas with regards to pirate ships and whatnot – suddenly metal makes sense. The coast is where the ancient ships plied their trade, both illegal and legal, so why wouldn’t you pay homage to those days gone by when it comes to your coastal theme? Use bright and brown touches for a completed and polished look.

25. Wood And Wicker

And the finishing touch? The seashells lining the ledge.

26. Plants

Plants in the bathroom

The combination of stark white furnishings, blue accent colors – as found in the mat, the mirror on the wall over the vanity, and the seahorse decorative figure, as well as a printed boat picture is just neat!
