The nautical design has become a popular choice among homeowners who want their homes to feel as though they are living close enough for a swim at any moment’s notice. Let’s learn how we can achieve this style!

Blue and White Stripes

 

Nautical designs are all about the ocean, and they have a color scheme to match. Create blue and white stripes on your bathroom walls. We recommend going with navy blue, but you can use any shade of blue you like.

If big bold stripes are too much for you, but you still want to create the nautical feel, paint in whites or neutrals. Gray is also a great option! It’s important to choose colors that you will personally enjoy.

Use Natural Materials

 

The first time I went to the beach, all I could think about were those crystal-clear waves crashing against the sand. They seemed like they would never end and each one left me feeling lost in its own personal medley of sound – thunderous yet soothing at once. When we picture our favorite seaside getaway what comes into mind? The blues of sky meeting with deep green water on a sunny day… then maybe some driftwood pieces half-buried by moist pebbles; palm trees swaying gently as if whispering secrets only they know…

You may be tempted to use synthetic materials but the designers recommend going with natural materials instead. A great way to give your bathroom an authentic seaside feel without having those pesky rustic features would be by using wood. Stone is also a great material – the natural beauty of stone is undeniable, and it makes for a captivating bathroom flooring.

Choose the Right Tiles

 

Beach bathrooms are usually filled with neutral colors, but it’s fun to make a change and add some color. You can use blue or green tiles for an interesting look that will stand out. You can also go with neutral and choose stone tiles.

Install a White Vanity

 

Nothing evokes the calmness of seaside living more than cool, crisp white vanity cabinets. They are a classic choice for nautical and other ocean-themed bathrooms designs since they reflect light giving your bathroom that light breezy beachside feeling while at the same time being a great canvas to decorate with whatever you desire. This amazing white vanity from Nelson Cabinetry will make you feel like you’re on vacation!
