Beach Cottage Bathroom Ideas
I love this design because it manage to give off a beach cottage vibe without going the route of blue.
Yet I love this design because of the gorgeous blue walls. That under sink towel storage is perfect too.
I adore the wainscotting in this bathroom with the pedal stool sink. Its a simple, clean vibe.
Open shelving can make your bathroom feel bigger and we love this gorgeous reclaimed wood double sink bathroom vanity from Pottery Barn. Yikes on the price, but I bet you could hire a local cabinet maker to recreate this for you at a fraction of the cost!
How awesome is this pallet shelf? It would be great made with driftwood as well.
I love how easy this driftwood towel rack project is. Just screw some rustic hooks onto a piece of driftwood and mount it on your wall using any old plank of wood painted white.
I love the subtle beachy colors of this luxury linen shower curtain and the wood buttons really top it off. Best part is that it’s an incredibly reasonable price!
I love the tones in this room and the circular mirror gives us a fresh, fun vibe. Everything about this space is very unique.
Who wouldn’t want to laze about in that deep tub? We’re also really drawn to that chair railing.
I’m so obsessed with these coral inspired shelves. They’re gorgeous and yet still really functional with weight limits of 20-35 pounds. Plus, they’re ocean-friendly as they’re made with plaster.
Tips for Creating the Beach Cottage Look in Your Bathroom
Use light colors: White, cream, and other light colors are perfect for creating a beach cottage feel in your bathroom. Not only do they give the space a bright and airy look, but they also help to reflect the natural light coming in from windows and skylights.
Keep it simple: When it comes to beach cottage bathrooms, less is definitely more. Avoid clutter and opt for sleek, clean lines instead.
Bring in natural elements: Seashells, starfish, driftwood, and other natural elements are the perfect way to add a beachy touch to your bathroom. Scatter them around the space or use them as accents on towels, curtains, or walls.
Let in the light: beach cottages are known for their bright and airy interiors. So make sure to let in as much natural light as possible by opening up curtains and blinds, and using mirrors to reflect light around the room.
Add some green: A few potted plants or some fresh flowers can go a long way in adding some life to your beach cottage bathroom. Just be sure to choose plants that can thrive in humid environments.
Create a focal point: Every room needs a focal point, and your beach cottage bathroom is no exception. A statement mirror or piece of art is the perfect way to add interest to the space.
