Creating A Bathroom Inspired By The Sea

If you are renovating your bathroom and plan to have a space that is completely different than it looked before, it's a good idea to come up with a theme for you to focus on. If you're a beach lover, a sea-inspired bathroom can be achieved rather easily. When the space is ready to be transformed, use the tips below to make your bathroom an ocean paradise.

Use Beach Colors

The first thing you'll need to do is to invoke the colors of the sea: blue and green. The easiest way to bring those colors into the bathroom is to apply a fresh coat of paint to the walls in calm blues or light greens. However, painting is just the first step. Once you've painted the walls a beautiful seafoam green or turquoise, it's time to think about the accessories.

Towels, drawer pulls, knobs and handles do not need to be green and blue. Remember the other colors that you might see at the ocean. For instance, you might select beige towels that remind you of sand. You might choose pink glass knobs for the vanity cabinet that remind you of the sunrise.

Bring the Beach Indoors

While you might not be able to get to the beach everyday, it's very easy to bring the beach into your home so that you experience a similar feeling every day. The easiest way to do this is to fill a clear vase with sand or rocks that you've collected at the beach. You can also create art with shells that your family has collected and frame the finished pieces.

Use Candles

A candle that smells like the sea can make all the difference if you always want to feel like you're laying on the sand. There are a number of scents that might remind you of the sea air. Once you've gotten the candle that reminds you of the ocean, you can place it in a glass mason jar tied with a piece of the kind of rope you'd see on a dock, or tuck it into a lantern that will remind you of walking on the beach at night.

Now that you've got some ideas that will help you transform your bathroom into an ocean oasis, you can start to get the knobs, vases, jars and other bathroom accessories you need to follow through with these suggestions. Stay on the lookout for more pieces that remind you of the sea.
