Creating a nautical themed bathroom using blinds
Your bathroom is one of the best places to introduce a set of nautical bathroom blinds since it the place where you can imagine sun, sand and sea coming together. You will find that a nautical theme suits its water-centred function while the blue seas, white clouds, and wave crests, as reflected on the tiles, blinds and furnishings, encourage a sense of relaxation.
Go completely coastal
With a coastal theme, your bathroom’s décor will be characterized by the colours of the sand, sun and sea – sky and sea blues, white to cream for sand, and yellows for a spurt of bright colour. These are accentuated by seashells, pebbles and driftwood collected from the seashore making a soft palette that encourages feelings of calmness and relaxation suitable for all ages. You can get the look by:
- Painting the walls in or putting tiles with plain cream colours.
- Highlighting the woodwork with either duck-egg or pale blue
- Putting white bathroom furniture and fixtures, such as the bathtub, basins, and toilet
- Installing soft oyster Venetian blinds or roller blinds in either cream or pale blue on the windows
- Placing seashells, pebbles and driftwood as decorative items
Under the sea
You can go underwater with your nautical theme, too. Install roller blinds with prints of underwater creatures or use plain green or blue roller blinds before adding framed images of underwater scenes on the walls. Use cool green or blue tiles on the walls and floors to represent the underwater world while the furniture stays white.
Children will love the sail boats bobbing on the bath while adults will like the nautical oars, knots, and anchors as decorations. Think of sailing while you’re taking a bath and you will be inspired. Go for pale blue and white walls although navy blue is also a possibility. The floors and ceilings can either be white or pale blue, too, although the bathtub, toilet and sinks are usually in white; the pristine colour makes the bathroom appear hygienic, which it should be. The blinds, which can be wood or faux wood Venetian or roller blinds, can also be in coordinated blue for a unified effect.
