Colour is at the heart of creating a nautical bathroom. It allows you to enhance the perfect mood for the one room in the house that’s actually all about taking a dip! Paint your walls in seafoam greens or soft blues paired with a white trim to immerse in that floating sensation of peace. If you love dramatic themes, harness your inner sailor and opt for a deep shade of blue and contrast it with bright white trim. Go all out with a Captain’s wheel for the wall, a shell-framed mirror or sailboat motifs.
Creams, light browns and pale pinks also conjure rustic beachscapes and envelop you in a sense of warmth, if that’s most important to you in the bathroom. Add texture with smatterings of candles, shells and driftwood-inspired accessories. Do you love to luxuriate in the bath? There’s no rule stating you can’t have a sky-blue ceiling to gaze on while you relax. To keep your paint looking its holiday best, use Dulux Easycare Bathroom. It’s moisture and steam resistant and protects against mould for five years.
Much like trying to choose one of too many stunning Greek Islands for a holiday, what if you simply can’t decide on the perfect palette for you? Luckily, there’s an easy way to ensure you bring the right beach vibe home. Dulux paint tester pots let you try out your ideas before you commit to splashing it on your walls. Pop into a Dulux Decorator Centre, a good hardware store or order a collection of paint tester pots online. Apply two coats of paint to pieces of A4 lining paper, wait until they’re dry and hang them up to envisage the coastal scene.
Then, get ready to step into your very own seaside dream at home.
