What colors are associated with the sea or ocean? All shades of blue and green, greys, neutrals – choose and mix whatever you like!

If you prefer traditional decor, go for red and coral, if you like contemporary style, add tan, sandy touches and dark brown.
What you really need is tiles! Tiled bathrooms are very popular and you can make up a bathroom in any style with them. Rock tiles in the shades and patterns you like, cover the floor and walls or only one statement wall. Wood is also a must for a sea-inspired bathroom, integrate it with furniture, cladding the bathtub and artworks.

The choice of furniture depends on the style of your bathroom – shabby chic and vintage furniture for the bathrooms of these styles, contemporary and sleek vanities for contemporary and minimalist spaces. Other furniture items may include stools, etageres, cabinets for storage, and they should match the bathroom style, unless it’s an eclectic space.
