Who says beach vibes have to stop once vacation ends? When the pull of the ocean is strong, bring the tranquility of the beach home with these sea-themed bathroom ideas.

Using colors, textures, and shapes reminiscent of sun-bleached sand and soothing surfs, you can recapture that coastal feel in your bathroom to create the ultimate spa-like retreat.


Embrace A Dreamy Coastal Color Scheme

A coastal color palette is inspired by the sea (think blues and greens) and the sand (light neutral tones). Let these shades set the tone in your bathroom.

Energize your space with Cintilante Bluette shower walls, whose bold blue and white patterning mimics ocean tides.

If you prefer a more light and airy atmosphere, opt for VeinCut Dune shower walls. The smooth lines and beige hues resemble a sandy shore kissed by gentle ocean breezes.


Show Off an Ocean-Inspired Sink

It’s said that gazing at the sea can induce a meditative state. With a glass vessel sink, you can almost feel the calm and serenity of lounging seaside. Its pale blue shade recalls clear ocean waters, while its subtle hammered texture accentuates the ripples of water and light across the basin to produce a mesmerizing surface effect.


Get Whimsical with Nautical Wallpaper

From sailboats to oceanic animals, nautical prints add fun and coastal charm to your bathroom walls. The playful jellyfish wallpaper instantly sparks a tone of whimsy while still bringing about a relaxed vibe. Its pattern is bold, but the classic color combination of blue and white keeps the wallpaper from overwhelming the space. To strike that perfect balance between elegance and levity, keep the design and décor minimal everywhere else.


Sprinkle In Seaside Décor and Accessories

A beach style bathroom isn’t complete without a few seashells or chic maritime motifs. This Carmel, CA seaside bathroom experimented with the new trend that turns faux-turtle shells into chic, coastal wall art. You can go just as big with a statement mural or subtly incorporate other decorative beach elements into your bath mat, shower curtain or lighting choices.
