Colour Choices

For a coastal bathroom certain colours will really make you feel like you’re living life on the beach, these include;

  • Whites & greys: if you’re not looking to create statement with colour, it’s safe to go with a bright white or soft grey. They’ll match any other colour you bring in with furnishings, while creating a calm sanctuary.
  • Blue: The most popular colour with coastal bathrooms, blue reminds us of the ocean and a sunny day on the coast. Think deep navy for a statement nautical bathroom, or soft duck-egg blues for a more subdued coastal bathroom.
  • Light pinks/oranges: Transport yourself under the sea with brilliantly soft colours that reflect coral. Don’t let it take over your bathroom and limit yourself to light hues of pink and orange in soft furnishings (towels) and accents, like edging etc.
