The coast has always been the heart of Southern California culture, so when thinking about remodeling your home, you may find yourself naturally gravitating towards bringing that tranquil beach vision indoors. A bathroom renovation provides the ideal opportunity to create a peaceful space that incorporates the beloved coastal-inspired lifestyle.
Home design trends may come and go, but here are 5 timeless coastal remodeling ideas that will ensure you love your bathroom for years to come.
5 Coastal Bathroom Remodeling Ideas
1. Highlight Coastal Hues
When you imagine the coast, you probably think of calming blue tones, sandy whites, & organic wood accents. When it comes to your bathroom remodel, you want to choose colors that will be contemporary yet ageless. You will find that incorporating contrasting yet complementing hues throughout your design is a great place to start when envisioning your seaside retreat.
This Huntington Beach bathroom renovation features bright, white countertops & stunning blue custom cabinets to mimic white sand beaches & airy, blue skies.
2. An Eye-Catching Shower Tile
A captivating shower tile can take your bathroom renovation to the next level. When searching for that perfect coastal-inspired tile, look for finishes that mimic common coastal textures: pebble or mermaid tile are two great options when trying to achieve this look. When it comes to colors, you may want to have a tile that is the star of the show, or you may opt for a subtle, neutral tile while adding pops of color in other aspects of your bathroom.
This tile featured in this Laguna Niguel bathroom remodel below, is an example of a timeless, classy tile that is the focal point of the space. The moment you walk into this room, your eye gravitates towards a deep blue mermaid pattern design. The gold features add additional dimension but do not stray too far away from the coastal vision.
3. A Timeless Accent Wall
Shiplap is just one example of an accent wall that will be forever-trending, it is a classic coastal staple and can be as subtle or as playful as you desire. Other examples of accent walls to think about adding to your remodel are a simple ocean blue wall, or a wallpaper with a beach motif — seashells, waves, fish, whatever represents what you love about the coast.
4. Mix & Match Coastal Materials
Just as important as your color scheme is the texture elements that you choose to incorporate in your bathroom remodel. Layering earthy, organic materials that represent smooth beach pebbles or driftwood can help you achieve your vision. Another example is adding distressed floating shelves, or installing tiles with a timber grain finish which can also help support your coastal bathroom theme through texture.
5. Add Structural Features
Elevate your coastal-inspired bathroom by installing wood beams to bring balance & contrast to your space. This unique structural feature emphasizes the naturalness of the coastal environment but is also a versatile tool in any space.
This Newport Coast primary bath remodel chose to use exposed beams in their space, The added color contrast and texture add dimension and interest to this stunning space.
