Beach Cottage Bathroom Ideas

Are you looking for ideas on getting a coastal look in your bathroom?

Maybe you want a beach theme bathroom or some coastal bathroom ideas just to give you those breezy vacation vibes…

Or, maybe you’re renovating an actual beach house, either way – we’ve got you covered today.

Coastal Bathroom Designs

Hopefully today these beach cottage bathroom ideas will help you bring your beach bathroom fantasy ideas to reality.

The best thing about a cottage beach bathroom is you don’t need to be near an ocean to add a coastal feel to your bathroom.

Check out the beach cottage bathroom design ideas below.

Work With The Color Blue

If you love admiring the deep blue sea every time you’re at the beach, why not bring those same vibes and energy into a beach-themed bathroom?

One of the best ways to do this is simply using the color blue in your coastal decor.

Perhaps this seems so obvious, but choosing beach bathroom decor like wallpaper with a blue color palette will add instant beach appeal.

Another idea is to paint the upper portions of your bathroom walls with sea blue colors to create a sky-like illusion.

Truly, there are endless ways to incorporate a blue color scheme into your designs.

White Subway Tile

In addition to the fun wallpaper in various shades of blue here, we chose to make this bathroom vanity the focal point of this beach house bathroom.

For a clean look in this small space, we went with a minimal white subway tile backsplash surround.

Keep It Serene

Muted or neutral colors are among the most recommended cottage bathroom colors by interior designers.

These restrained colors create a spa-like soothing space.

Of course you can use these same calming neutral colors in other areas of the home, such as the living room and the powder room.

Adding a wicker basket or two is a great way to incorporate a little texture with natural materials.

Light fixtures in brass tones can add a nautical, coastal feel to a bathroom.

Finally, you can throw in a coastal fragrance around the bathroom.

These are available in candles, sprays and soaps.

Sea and maritime scents will give you that tropical beach appeal.

And, a guest bath or powder room is the perfect place to add one of these.

You can also opt for natural beach shells for that added authenticity.
