You do not have to live by the beach to have nautical bathroom decor at home. Nobody says you cannot do so if you live in the central city. Besides, this interior design idea can make you feel that every day at home is a holiday.
So, ready to break the norm? These are the five (5) tips for authentic-looking, nautical bathroom decor:
- Paint it all white and add a beachcomber style.
Still unsure where to start? Paint the walls white. Then add a beachcomber style furniture. In a flash, you get to magically turn your bathroom into a fisherman’s hut, somewhere by the beach.
Enhance the natural feel in your white bathroom by incorporating natural material, such as wood furniture and pebble tiles.
To refresh the look, you can add blue rug.
- Add starfish and corals.
Starfish and corals make authentic-looking, nautical bathroom decor on the wall. This idea will remind you of a Disney’s “Little Mermaid” song, “Under the Sea”. If you are worried about being environmentally unfriendly, there are fake starfish and corals on sale nowadays. You do not have to use the real ones.
Create a rustic attraction in the bathroom by painting everything white and add a ladder.
You can decorate the bathtub area with coral display to experience a more soothing and entertaining bath.
Or, you can go crazy with the theme and fill the entire walls with starfish, shells, and corals.
- Paint it all blue on the walls.
If white walls feel too bland for you, let’s do the opposite. With white furniture in your bathroom, paint the walls blue, teal, or aquamarine-color. The color alone has already spoken nautical that describes your bathroom decor.
Make it look more flattering with a stylish light fixture.
Another option is to colorblock the walls with light blue and white.
- Place a theme in a small space.
What if your bathroom is rather small? Then you do not have to decorate everything with a nautical theme. Instead, make use of one corner for that theme alone. For example, a small portrait of the ocean or a yacht on the wall, and a ship toy and a lighthouse toy on the shelf.
You can apply a beach themed decoration on the three wall toilet enclosure to transform a small bathroom.
Placing a surfboard on the corner of the bathroom is also a simple way to get into the beach theme.
If adding some decorative objects somehow make your small bathroom feel cramped, you can go with nautical patterned wallpaper. Then, choose accessories that support the theme, like these rope mirror, towel ring, and toilet roll holder.
- Have a nautical-theme decor around scented candles.
It is another easy way to have a nautical-theme decor in the bathroom. Put some sand into a glass cup, then your scented candle with some starfish, shellfish, and clam around it. Once again, you can use fake ones as part of the decoration.
This beautiful coastal candle holder can be easily DIYed.
