The Coastal Theme Bathroom
May 29, 2018
As mentioned in our Beach Themed Bathrooms, the Coastal Theme Bathroom is another one of many of the Water Themed decorating styles.
We mentioned that the Coastal Themed Bathroom is more delicate in nature and is associated more with sand and seashells. In fact, the Seashell Theme is the dominant feature in a Coastal Themed Bathroom.
We also mentioned that it is not dark such as a Nautical Themed Bathroom, which uses colors such as Navy blue, white and sometimes red or yellow.
This coastal theme is much more gentle. You want to walk into your Coastal themed bathroom and imagine a gentle breeze coming off of the beach as you walk leisurely through the soft sands and pick up seashells along the way. This is why it’s also called “The Seashell Theme“.
Coastal Theme Bathroom Colors
The colors for a coastal theme bathroom should remind you of walking along the beach so we would stick to colors such as light blue, sandy beige, coral, or white.
You definitely want to evoke a gentle relaxing feeling so keep this in mind when choosing your colors. The best tip is to purchase your Bathroom Shower Curtain first, and then you can bring it to wherever you buy your paint and have them do an exact match to the main color you want.
Coastal Theme Shower Curtains
When it comes to choosing your coastal theme bathroom shower curtains, it’s important to find the look you are going for. Some people are more interested in a beach style vibe while others are looking for more of a Seashell Decor. You can obviously mix and match the different products to evoke the exact coastal style that suits you and your family.
Here are a few Coastal Theme Shower Curtain Ideas:
This particular Seaside Theme Shower Curtain comes with it’s own Bathroom Accessories so you can make it match without trying to find other products.
Beware, that some products may no longer be in stock at the time of viewing this page but more often than not, they are still available. Simply click on the pics for more information and to check availability.
These particular Coastal Bathroom Accessories can also be used with any other shower curtain that you may choose to complete your theme.
Here is another beautiful Coastal Shower Curtain featuring a lovely starfish to add a splash of color to the sandy beach along with the beach conchs. The blue wave coming into shore sets a lovely mood for the Coastal bathroom theme style.
This pretty blue colored Coastal Bathroom Shower Curtain can also be used in a Nautical themed bathroom if you are looking for something not quite as dark as a Navy/Red/White color scheme.
The light blue beach wood in the background along with the fish net is a lovely setting for the lighthouse, conches and shells along the edge.
You can see the same type of Coastal theme here with the beach board and fish net again as a background along with starfish, seashells and conches to bring out the coastal/beach theme of the shower curtain.
This is another popular beach/coastal themed bathroom shower curtain. Blue skies and sandy beaches give the perfect backdrop for these pretty coastal shells and starfish.
If you prefer something a little different, here is a seashell coastal bathroom shower curtain that contains words about the beach along with smaller shells etc. This is similar to the one we showed you in the beach themed bathroom article. That one was called “Beach Words”, and they are both good sellers for those who want something a little bit different for their bathroom theme.
Tropical Beach Themed Shower Curtains
If you’re going for a more tropical vibe in your beach themed bathroom you might prefer something with palm trees and open skies. Here are a few more coastal theme bathroom shower curtains that are of a more tropical nature.
This is a very calming scene of blue skies, white clouds and peaceful waters. This would make a beautiful addition to any coastal/beach themed bathroom.
The palm trees swaying from the top of this shower curtain give you the feeling of being in the shade on a beautiful tropical island.
Tip: Shower curtains can also be used as a curtain on a deck to help deflect the sun, or near a bar to give it a Tiki Bar type feel.
Some people like to hang them behind their beds to give it a tropical feeling.
This tropical palm tree is very popular for a coastal/beach themed bathroom. It is very serene to look at and adds relaxation at the end of a busy day 🙂

The Nautical Themed Bathroom
May 29, 2018
The Nautical Themed Bathroom is much darker than the previous mentioned beach bathroom theme.
Unlike the fun, whimsical feelings of the beach themed bathroom, or the more relaxing Coastal Theme Bathroom, The Nautical Themed Bathroom is all about Adventure.
When considering a nautical themed bathroom, we envision things such as Lighthouses, Anchors, Ships/Boats, Buoys, Fishing Nets, Oars, and other accessories associated with an Ocean Theme or Sea type style.
Bathroom Color Choice:
For a nautical bathroom theme, the colors will be darker and more intense than what we used in a beach or coastal theme. Here the colors will be noticeably deeper so as to give the impression of a marine feel.
Colors for the Nautical bathroom are the colors of Navy Blue, Red, White and perhaps some bright yellow. This is not the place for any pastels or light colors or accessories. The white is the only color we would really consider light and it is there to accentuate the dark colors of the navy blue, red or bright yellow. Some green can be acceptable but that color would be better used in a marine/ocean themed bathroom. (We talk more about that here)
Depending on the light sources in your bathroom, you may want to keep the walls white to keep it looking brighter and use the other colors as accents. If you like the idea of a darker underground feel, then painting the walls navy will give this effect. Many people will have an accent wall in navy or red and keep the rest white. This is totally dependent on your preferences.
Nautical Theme Shower Curtains :
The bathroom shower curtain is generally the first thing that will attract your attention when entering the room so it is always a good idea to make certain that the shower curtain you choose will convey the feeling of the theme that you wish to evoke.
Here are a few examples that will hopefully help you in deciding the look you are going for.
This is a lovely bathroom shower curtain if you are going for an anchor themed nautical bathroom. We wouldn’t necessarily use that color of blue on the wall. Here is a good example of why it is a great idea to buy the shower curtain of your choice first and then decide the color that you wish the wall to be. In this example we would either choose white, or go with one of the blues found in the shower curtain itself.

Beach Themed Bathrooms
May 29, 2018
Your Beach Themed Bathroom doesn’t have to be like all the rest. Everyone wants to be unique so let yourself find your own Beach Styled Theme for your own bathroom.
When it comes to choosing a Beach Themed Bathroom you might want to consider some of the similarities between other bathroom ideas with a water theme.
We like to split the water themed bathrooms into three categories:
- The Beach Themed Bathroom
- The Coastal Themed Bathroom
- The Nautical Themed Bathroom
Water Themed Bathrooms
What is it that differentiates the three water themed bathrooms? Although there are many similarities such as sand, water, blue skies, and sun, there are other things that make them different.
The Beach Theme
As we noted, although the beach themed bathroom will incorporate the bathroom colors of sand, water, blue skies and sunshine it is different from the others in some ways. This is how we see the differences in characteristics.
When we think of the beach, many will not only conjure up images of peaceful relaxation.
Some people love the beach for the fun times that they have when they are there.
They remember things such as playing Volleyball, or making sandcastles, surfing and riding on inflated tire tubes. The sounds of splashing, laughing and little children squealing and of course, Flip Flops, are just some of the things that mean “Beach” to them.
This type of person would seek out a brighter, more fun style or playful approach to their Beach Themed Bathroom. (more about this later)
The Coastal Theme
The Coastal Themed Bathroom is similar to the Beach themed Bathroom except that it would incorporate softer hues. Here you would find softer blues and perhaps peach colored or beige sand colored bathroom decor. We talk about this bathroom theme in more detail under “The Coastal Bathroom Theme“.
The Nautical Theme Bathroom
For the Nautical Themed Bathroom you would decorate in Bathroom Colors of Dark Blue/Navy, White and perhaps some red or yellow.
This theme is for those who want a more ocean type feel. Here you would find things such as Anchors, Lighthouses, Nautical Ropes, Buoys, Ships Wheels and Compasses etc. (Think of Pirates and maps)
You can read more on the Nautical Themed Bathroom under its own category called “The Nautical Themed Bathroom“
Now that you know that different styles of Water Themed Bathroom Decor, let’s concentrate on “The Beach Themed Bathroom“.
Beach Theme Bathroom Shower Curtains
For the more fun and playful beach theme we want to have the bathroom shower curtains to invoke a bright, whimsical feeling. We want a certain boldness to the beach themed bathroom that we will not encounter in the other bathroom themes.

Speaking of Towels, in a beach theme bathroom such as this you would want some really bold colored Beach towels to add that extra pizazz to the room such as these:
If you have a really large bare wall in the bathroom this might be a unique bathroom decorating idea for you. It’s a removable self-adhesive vinyl wallpaper that will certainly brighten your bathroom and give you that “at the beach” feeling.
The chair and ottoman do not come with it. This is only there to give you and idea of what it would look like in a room. This one measures 66″ x 96″
Depending on how elaborate you want your decorating in the beach theme bathroom to go you might like to try a few of these additional ideas.
If your beach bathroom decorating budget is low, you might just add some beach ball cabinet drawer knobs such as this one below. It’s cute and whimsical and would go nicely with the beach towels we showed you before.
Beach Bathroom Vanities
If your beach theme bathroom decorating budget is higher you may want to make more changes such as adding a new beach bathroom Vanity such as the one below.
This would look lovely with a beach bathroom styled mirror such as this.
If you prefer a beach bathroom vanity with it’s own matching mirror you might prefer something like this one below:

Beach Bathroom Flooring Ideas
If money allows, you may want to change up your bathroom floor to make it look more beach like. The following suggestions below can also work for your Coastal Theme Bathroom or Nautical Bathroom.
One Choice is To Use Bathroom Floor Tile:
This is a beautiful tile and would great in any beach themed bathroom. Some people tile the whole floor, others have tried tiling the shower floor itself with good results.

Another Choice for Your Beach Themed Bathroom is Vinyl Flooring:
This beautiful Beach Themed Flooring is a lovely arrangement or various tonalities to give it a beach type feel. It is Waterproof and easy to apply. It would be a great addition to your bathroom. Below is a sample for a closer look.
Beach Themed Bathroom Wallpaper/Tiles

Here is a clearer sample:
This comes in a roll that measures 17.71″ x 78″ and can be applied with the pattern going up and down or side to side. It all depends on the look you are going for. This is a fun DIY project if you enjoy doing it yourself.
If you prefer Peel and Stick Wall Tiles then this may be more in line with what you want. These are Peel and Stick Wall Tiles that would go well in any Beach Themed Bathroom, whether it be a Coastal Theme Bathroom or a Nautical Themed Bathroom.

The Farmhouse Style Bathroom
April 26, 2018
Don’t live in a Farmhouse? Well don’t let that stop your from adding some lovely Farmhouse Décor to your home. Many people are doing bathroom makeovers and the current trend is Farmhouse style.
What is “Farmhouse Décor” Style?
The Farmhouse Style has developed over the last few years as people were looking for simpler ways to live their lives. With the advance of minimalism, people are turning towards a more natural, easy-going environment.
When it comes to home decorating, which include the bathroom décor, they want to return to the more simplistic times. They don’t want a lot of busy décor themes. Many people now are wanting to embrace old traditions of the days gone by down on the farm.
The simplicity of it all makes them feel more relaxed.
Mind you, the Farmhouse Style isn’t for everybody, but for those of you dreaming of long forgotten memories of the days gone past then, this would be a good bathroom decorating style for you.
What Categorizes it as Farmhouse Décor?
- Neutral Color Schemes
- Natural Textures and Materials
- Wood and Reclaimed Wood
- Galvanized Steel
- Slightly Rustic Appearance
- Chicken Wire
- Distressed Furniture
- Barnboard or Bead Board
- Wrought Iron Accents
- Wooden or Planked Flooring
- Vintage Type Accessories
How to Put Your Bathroom Ideas Together:
Choose Your Color
First, consider your color scheme. Because Farmhouse style is based on light, neutral colors, you may want to keep it to Beige, White, Cream, Grey or even a light Sage.
Use Natural Textures and Materials
Farmhouse Décor doesn’t generally have much color. It gets it’s calming effect by keeping things neutral so look for Shower Curtains and Accessories with a variety of texture.
This lovely ruffled shower curtain on the left would fit in perfectly with a Farmhouse decorated bathroom.
Perhaps you would prefer something like our Piping Farmhouse Shower Curtain with Ticking.
If you will be using this to decorate the Master Bathroom then you will be happy to know that this particular model also has bedding to match.
Did you notice the wooden ladder in the corner of the bathroom? This is a very attractive way to hang your towels farmhouse fashion. You can even have them in a custom wood if you like.
If you would prefer a more Country Style Farmhouse Style, this patchwork shower curtain may appeal to you.
This wood planked fabric shower curtain may also be your choice. It looks like wood planks but is actually made of fabric. Very unique bathroom shower curtain.
Here is another very popular Farmhouse Shower Curtain. It’s called Darla and has beautiful flowers strewn around it. Because it is a neutral color it fits in very well with a Farmhouse Decor style.

Wood and Reclaimed Wood
As we mentioned, there is a lot of wood in a farmhouse style bathroom. Usually the apron sink is set on a wooden cabinet and there are touches of wood in various other parts of the bathroom such as signage or open shelves.
Farmhouse style floors are usually covered in wood or reclaimed wood.
If you can’t afford real wood then you might consider installing a vinyl, waterproof floor instead of the real thing. Wood floors can be expensive so vinyl flooring is a cheaper alternative.
There are many different variations on Rustic Barn Flooring so you are not limited in your choices.
There are all kinds of ways to add wood finishes to your bathroom. Many use Wainscotting or Shiplap, while other may use barn boards like the pic below.
If you’re looking for a cheaper way to do a wood finish you might like something like this: Believe it or not, this is actually just peel and stick!
How much easier can it get than that!
Tip: I wouldn’t use this on the shower wall as it would get too wet, but on the other walls in the bathroom it should be fine 🙂
Speaking of wood, let’s not forget about your Farmhouse Bathroom Vanity. There are many models to choose from and of course you can decide whether you want a single sink vanity or double sink. It all depends on the size of your household, the size of your budget and your budget.
Farmhouse Bathroom Vanity
Below is a lovely blue distressed wood vanity with a single sink. Remember we said that Farmhouse style has distressed wood to give it that old home feel.
If you need something for a smaller bathroom perhaps this would be better for you.
There are many choices when it comes to choosing a Farmhouse Bathroom Vanity. Fortunately, there are enough vanities for your bathroom to suit your needs.
Personal preference is what it all comes down to so be sure to check out our other Bathroom vanities and see if there is something you like.

Do You Need An Extra Wide And Extra Long Shower Curtain?
November 3, 2016
Finding an extra wide shower curtain as well as an extra long shower curtain can be a problem. Fortunately there are a few shower curtains on the market that can solve the issue. We received an email from a woman who had a problem finding a shower curtain that is 78″ Wide as well as 78″ Long. Here is the solution to the dilemma.
The first option is to find a shower curtain this size which is extra long and extra wide. This is what we came across.
This particular shower curtain on the right, is both extra wide and extra long. 78″ x 78″. It is a beautiful shower curtain with Blues, white and tans. To purchase this particular shower curtain, just click on the picture and it will give you more details.
This extra wide shower curtain shown below is 78″ x 78″ but has wider options as well. Click on the photo for more information.
We also have a more modern designed shower curtain that fits the description of an extra wide shower curtain as well as an extra long one.
(Note: The colors state that this shower curtain is Black/White and Grey/Gray but customers say it is actually Tan and not Grey)
This curtain also measures 78″ Wide and 78″ Long
The biggest concern when choosing an extra wide and extra long Shower Curtain is finding one in a style and color that will go with your bathroom decor. This is why we are listing a variety of designs hoping you will find one that meets your style and budget.

Extra Wide/Extra Long Shower Curtain Liners
You are probably aware that extra wide/extra long shower curtain liners are also hard to find. We have included a couple here to help you. Although these are marketed as shower curtains, they can easily be used a shower curtain liners to protect any fabric shower curtain you may be using.
If you can’t find an extra wide shower curtain at 78”, purchasing one at 84” will be wider by 6 inches. This is not a huge problem because you can usually adjust the fullness between the hooks to make it fit, but more fully ( a more drape like effect)
With an extra wide shower curtain, you may need extra shower curtain hooks. Due to the extra width, there may be more shower curtain holes.
Remember our advise to always use a shower curtain liner even if they say that their fabric is waterproof…See our article Which Bathroom Shower Curtain is the Best?
