Coastal Bathrooms

Get ideas for coastal bathrooms, and prepare to create a sea-and-surf-inspired bath space in your home.

Knowing your options for coastal bathroom designs will help you make better decisions on your bath remodeling project.

Coastal bathrooms aren't just found in seaside towns. Many homeowners with a love of the beach choose to theme their bath spaces with coastal elements, regardless of how far they need to travel to catch a whiff of sea air.

The first consideration if you're contemplating a coastal or beach-style bathroom is the color scheme. Bright, light, airy styles tend to work best for beach themes, so you'll likely want to explore a range of whites and blues that will transport guests and family members beachside.

Nautical patterns are another feature of beach-style bathrooms, especially in the form of bold stripes, often in blue and white. These can be employed subtly on linens or accessories for a sea-faring feel.

Speaking of accessories, seashell soap dishes, decorative coral or dried starfish placed artfully on windowsills and bathed in natural light, or a sea-sponge hung strategically in the shower can all bring a hint of the ocean into your coastal bathroom design.

In terms of core style, Cape Cod/cottage style and Mediterranean are two of the most prevalent coastal bathroom designs. Cottage-style bathrooms are characterized by a bright, airy feel and the use of traditional beadboard. Mediterranean styles feature lots of smooth, often sand-colored tile.
