These sandy tiles on the wall and the floor are matching the cabinets in the bathroom as well. The countertop stands out just because has that pale blu/green color, and the industrial fixtures match the whole bathroom style.

Deep Blue Cabinets


If you’re not a big fan of details and if you don’t like cluttered spaces, this is the perfect idea on how to decorate your nautical bathroom. Just paint the lower cabinets in dark blue, and add golden handles. You can add some contrast with the black-framed mirrors and light fixtures as well.



For all of you who like more subtle and calming spaces, yet still get that nautical look, you can pick sand-colored tiles for the floor, and blue tiles only for the shower walls. Add some matching towels and there you go. Pure perfection.

If you’re aiming for a more luxurious nautical style, this is it. The tile is simply amazing, but the golden elements make it pop and give it that much more character. The greenery makes it look fresh, yet so elegant. You can paint the cabinet in some lighter color but it’s gonna look good no matter what color you pick.
