Decorating a coastal home’s bathroom may prove to be one of the greatest challenges faced by a homeowner because of the lack of free space and permanent placements of the nautical fixtures. Remodeling a bathroom is a lengthy and costly process – sometimes taking several weeks to nearly a year to complete depending upon the extent of the renovation. While this is sometimes a necessary route when plumbing is bad, fixtures are damaged or there is another significant problem with rotting or damaged tiling – a simple revamp can be a quick and inexpensive solution to a bathroom that is simply dated or past its prime.
A standard "full bath" in the United States typically refers to a room with a bath/shower combination (although this is not required – sometimes only a shower is available), toilet and a sink. Depending on the style of bathroom it may have a small cupboard or shelves installed. Since space is limited in most bathrooms, most bathroom hardware is designed to be small, provide storage and attach to the walls. Common hardware for your coastal home includes toilet tissue holders, towel bars or rings, toothbrush holder, soap dish, shower curtains, robe hooks, cabinet knobs/drawer pulls and coastal towels.
Creating a common theme in the bathroom is a great way to unify the look of a disorderly nautical bathroom. This can be easily accomplished with the use of a common design, finish or general theme. Since the bathroom is focused around water, there is no better place in the home to introduce a fun and novel ocean theme! This can be easily accomplished by replacing dull cabinet knobs with a fun pewter starfish design or installing a new towel bar with a clamshell pattern. When creating a coastal bathroom theme it is limited only by the imagination – using a mixture of knobs will create an eclectic pattern that will tie together without being overdone.
