Trend Alert: Coastal Bathrooms

Trend alert: Coastal bathrooms

There is something so utterly comforting about a coastal interior, whether it's a nostalgic memory of beach days with the family or the fact it's synonymous with relaxation, this style exudes a calming atmosphere in any home. From shell décor and organic shapes to blue tiles, we're here to help you achieve this serene and effortless trend at home.

Introduce classic blue and white

A nautical-style bathroom is often associated witrh the harmonious colour combination of blue and white. To add interest and depth, introduce blue patterned floor tiles - in either a pastel blue or dark navy - to achieve a statement base that can then be built upon. Let your tiles do the talking and pair them with a more neutral wall colour and bathroom accessories or maximise the scheme by complementing blue tiles with a blue vanity unit.

Practical, stylish and timeless, the ocean can never feel too far away with playful pops of blue, whether you opt for floor tiles or wall tiles. Our Nador Sky Gloss Tile provides a tranquil ambience within any bathroom, as the elegant pastel blue hues offer a restful feel for the whole family. Alternatively, if you'd prefer impactful blue walls, pair them with our impressive variety of white tiles. From our textured Knole Concept White Tile to our sleek Poitiers White Gloss Tile, these designs are perfect to recreating an ocean-like setting.

Embrace organic silhouettes

A style rooted in the natural beauty and soft silhouettes of the great outdoors, ensure you introduce these elements into your bathroom - no matter the size.

Décor can be as simple as a round mirror to mirror a nautical porthole, a selection of curved shells which you collected on your last trip to the seaside or sea-themed motifs via wallpaper or tiles. Organic shapes and lowing lines are great finishing touches to leave your bathroom feeling welcoming and homely.

Add natural materials

Recreating the look and feel of the coast in your home means bringing elements of the outdoors and indoors. From wood wall panelling to rope-themed rattan accessories, small details like this will bring plenty of texture and warmth to a bathroom when paired with the cooler tones of white or blue wall tiles.
