The Nautical Themed Bathroom is much darker than the previous mentioned beach bathroom theme.
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.
This Ghost Ship Theme is also a great choice for a Nautical Bathroom Theme. It is reminiscent of old Pirate ships lost in the night.
Here we have a ship in a storm. This is another good nautical themed bathroom shower curtain for your bathroom theme. It reminds me again of a pirate type theme which would be great in a kids bathroom.
This Lighthouse/Starfish Theme is both Coastal, as well as Nautical. With it’s navy blue and white colors it will fit a nautical themed bathroom very nicely.
Another lovely choice for a nautical bathroom is this red/white/navy with yellow accents. This gives the bathroom a whimsical feeling. Your color choices for the walls and accessories can be any one of these colors.
