Beach inspiration for your bathroom

23 September, 2015

Coastal accents and cooling hues can give your bathroom a calming feel as well as channelling an interior style that suits your room. Here’s how to take cues from the sun, sea and sand to create a beautiful beach inspired bathroom.

Maritime motifs

Driftwood accessories that are modelled on ship lanterns are great to reflect the romantic feel of the ocean make your bubble bath experience extra cosy. Get the most out of your space and consider how you can utilise your walls for additional shelving space and decorative accessories. Rustic rope is a great way to add texture to your bathroom and is in-keeping with the ocean theme. To beautifully echo natural elements, try scattering sea shells on your shelving to give a sure feeling of the shore. Try Photowall’s Maritime Map wall mural with white and grey bathroom accessories.


True blue hues

Choose a colour scheme inspired by the beauty of the ocean and you’ll be amazed with the feeling of tranquillity in the room. Blue hues that echo ocean shades add a feeling of calmness and serenity, reflecting the stillness of water. Try channelling dusky shades of sand on your bathroom tiles and bring it all together with subtle shades of blue.
Accessories, such as blue glass, are a great way to introduce cool blue tones without the commitment of redecorating the whole room. You could also try adding a beach scene feature wall into your bathroom.

Sea-like storage

Coastal inspired storage can be a great way to bring the beach life into your bathroom. Driftwood crates add a feeling of an authentic beach setting, echoing some of the ‘found’ materials on the beachfront. Rustic white bathroom furniture that looks a little worn is synonymous in the beach hut style home – you can create the distressed look yourself by gently using some sandpaper on the corners of your furniture to give it a shipwrecked look. – You should check out Photowall’s beautiful scenic range of beach wall murals perfect for adding a piece of the coast into your bathroom.
