Beach Theme Bathroom Design
When designing a bathroom with a beach theme, we focus on the same design principles that apply to a modern beach house or modern coastal design style. Check out our article How to Decorate Modern Coastal for a deep dive into creating the modern coastal look in your home.
To create a modern beach house bathroom, think whites and light wood as the baseline. Everything else in terms of decor will stem from there.
Once you have the whites and light wood foundation, it’s time to incorporate another coastal color such as calming blue tones. Here are some examples of coastal blues showing up in the flooring and tile.
For a bit more of a pop, choose an accent color like cool turquoise and incorporate in the tile, rugs, or a painted accent wall.
If you are the type who needs more of a punchy statement or a dash of drama in your beach themed bathroom, try a cobalt blue accent wall with eye grabbing gold fixtures.
Still bold but with a softer, moodier vibe, go with a blue gray color for the vanity or an accent wall.
Beach Themed Bathroom Paint Ideas
To create a coastal vibe, you simply can’t go wrong within the blue color family, but if you are looking for some other options or colors to pair with, take a look at our Beach House Mood Board.

Beach Bathroom Decor: Tropical Plants
Adding tropical plants to your bathroom is another great way to create a beachside feeling. Tropical plants thrive in high humidity making them the perfect fit for the bathroom. Just make sure you choose plants according to how much sunlight your bathroom gets.
If you don’t possess a green thumb, adding dried beach grass, pampas or palm fronds can be a good substitute.
Beach Bathroom Decor: Accents & Accessories
Remember the whites and light wood design tip? The same applies to your accessories such as soap dishes, brushes, towels, etc. Natural wood accents, shells and stones are other fun decorative items to incorporate into your beachy bathroom.
Beach Bathroom Decor: Wicker and Woven Accents
The natural fibers of wicker and woven decor are also right at home in a beachy bathroom. Some ideas are baskets, woven bowls, wall hangings and wicker light fixtures.
