Get the look: coastal cool bathroom

So you’re renovating your bathroom and you’d love to capture that cool, casual, coastal vibe. The one that harkens back to sand in your toes, lazy days by the beach and the laid back family time that we all love. Here are a few tips to help you bring the coastal cool into your bathroom.

Colour scheme

When it comes to cool coastal, you can’t go past blue, sea green, white and cream. We suggest using white or cream as your main colour and layering in some fun accessories to get the look you’re after. A feature tile, cabinet colour, or even ceiling colour can add a tonne of interest — though they’re a much bigger commitment than a feature paint choice.


Nothing says coastal like timber, bamboo, or natural stone. Keep your basins white, softly curved and with chrome or stainless steel tapware. Timber-look tiles on the floor (we love the white-washed look!) can make you feel like you’re steps away from the beach — even if you’re in the city.

Style your bathroom with timber or bamboo accessories, like a stool, shower caddy, toothbrush holder or soapdish. And don’t forget driftwood! Get your hands on some lovely driftwood wall art or accessories to take the look up a notch.

On the walls

A unique shiplap wall treatment is coastal to the max! Thanks to the wood needed to make this look happen, it’s a better choice for powder rooms than shower rooms. If you’re wanting to take the coastal cool vibe into your family bathroom, why not choose a fun fish scale tile, or a nautical or whale-themed wallpaper?


Take your bathroom from beach shack to spa retreat by choosing the right linens. For something extra soft and special, our pale blue Pompom Turkish towel will fit right into your cool coastal decor. Pair it with our matching hand towels to complete the look. Another great option is the Pompom Turkish towel in Natural, which can be paired with the matching hand towels, of course.

Our Malta or Stonewashed Turkish towels are another perfect way to embody chilled out, coastal cool in your bathroom. Super absorbent and fast-drying, they’re super durable as well as being eco friendly.

Create your sanctuary

Whatever your style, the most important thing is to choose well-made items that make you feel good. They’ll stand the test of time and make you feel great as you get ready to face the day.
