:: Coastal Home Decor In The Bathroom ::

Tuesday Tips

Coastal bathroom with a reclaimed wood counter topThe bathroom is an easy place to overlook and a great place to decorate. It’s easy because you can decorate it by simply hanging a picture or you can go all out and gut the space to install your dream bathroom. The sky is the limit! Well, actually, the space is the limit. You are very limited in what you can practically do in a bathroom, but that’s a plus!

The small space instantly changes the rules of the game. Because most bathrooms are small (we say most because not all bathrooms are created equal), it means creativity and clever design are key. You need to determine function over fashion, meaning do you want it to look good or do you want it to be a useful bathroom?

Most people want a functional bathroom for obviously reasons, but a guest bathroom gives you more options to play with. The guest bathroom gives you and your guests a place to take care of business and get out. We aren’t lounging in the tub or enjoying the walk in shower with a rain drop shower head – we’re in and we’re out. That means you can install a floating, reclaimed wood sink that has the minimal necessities to wash up and move on.

A large, spacious master bathroom gives you all the options you can ever think of and all the options your contractor can charge you for as well. We’ll let your imaginations take this one, it shouldn’t be that hard. In case you are lacking inspiration, we have a couple images of bathrooms we’re enjoying. We have picked out bathrooms that range from simple to dream bathroom to help you realize you’re missing out on a great design opportunity if you’re not decorating your bathroom.

Tuesday Tips

A coastal bathroom with a clean look and open storageA great way to simplify and free up space in the bathroom is to open up the storage space. This way you can prevent yourself from stuffing the drawers and creating clutter in the bathroom. With storage out in the open, it’s easy to see what should stay and what should go. Open storage underneath the sink provides a look and feel of openness in the small space. We gathered a few images to give you an idea of how a bathroom with open storage can look. Scroll down to get inspired to simplify your bathroom and create a clean, minimal look!

What’s Trending Wednesday

We’ve been seeing rustic, coastal design done right lately and we’re loving it. You can tell because it feels right. I know we can throw out some design jargon as to why it works or compliments this or that, but deep down you can just feel it throughout your entire body. You don’t want to change anything and you don’t need to add anything either. Lately we’ve been seeing a lot of original wood floors and wall panels. Also, people these days aren’t afraid to bring in a little color. Home owners are accepting and embracing the original installations of their home instead of ripping it all out and redoing it from top to bottom. We’re attributing it to this day and age’s DYI attitude mixed in with a little of the latest style trends and we’re loving it!

Tuesday’s Tip From The Pros

We want to bring a little touch of the beach to your home and we’re going to start with your bathroom. The best part about this is you can do this with any bathroom of any size. It can be a full overhaul that transforms your bathroom into the perfect beach cottage getaway or just a few accessories that bring the beach to your powder room. So let’s take a look at what you can do to take the leap into the ocean of bathroom design.

Glass jars are something that can add style and functionality. These jars can offer the perfect coastal vibes when filled with seashells or sponges and can offer extra storage space for cottage swobs or q-tips. It’s a two in one and you can’t beat that! Check out our glass jars here and pick some up to help your bathroom out!

The laundry basket is kind of a no brainer, it makes clean up easy and adds a little touch coastal-rustic style to the bathroom. Make it easy on yourself on those early mornings and have that basket handy for when your jumping in and out of the shower. Trust us, you’ll thank yourself later. Snag our wire laundry basket here!

Bathrooms are only so big, so why not try to maximize the space? Small tables will help add extra storage space, display space and surface space. You’ll love your table in your bathroom when you have extra space to put towels or your bubble bath soap.

I don’t know about you, but in the morning the tile on my bathroom floor is cold! So our way around that is a nice warm rug! This way it completes the room and keeps our toes warm! Check out our rugs here!

No bathroom is complete without some coastal accessories and we have plenty for you! From soap dish trays to towels you can cover your bathroom with the perfect accessories. Here at Tuvalu we’ve got plenty for you to choose from. Find all kinds of accessories at Tuvalu Home!
