Create a beach hut-style bathroom

Get the seaside look instantly with our quick and easy style ideas

A new striped feature wall creates interest in this bathoom, and the slatted white blind adds privacy while giving a beach-hut feel to the window. A storage box-cum-seat is perfect for towels and a striped rug and a few accessories inspired by the seaside complete the look.

Opt for deckchair stripes
Smart stripes liven up the feature wall. Use masking tape to mark out the lines and make sure they’re straight. Dulux has a great range of blue paints.

Choose seaside accessories
A few simple objects inspired by the coast give the scheme a seaside feel. Visit The Beach Hut for similar accessories.

Add rich tones of blue
A cotton rug in smart nautical stripes matches the new feature wall, while fluffy blue towels add much-need colour. Visit B&Q for a similar rug, and try Next for fluffy bath linens.

Go for smart storage
The white panelled laundry bin provides a handy bathroom seat, as well as storage for towels. Find a design like this at Argos.

Try a simple blind
A Venetian-style blind is perfect for a coastal bathroom. Plus, it gives privacy while still letting in plenty of light. Find similar at John Lewis.

Make a statement with wall writing
Not only are words on the walls still big in design news, but it’s a great way to introduce a touch of coastal charm. Check out our style ideas for statement lettering.
