Lighthouse Bathroom-A Touch of the Sea

Updated on September 10, 2014

Decor to Spruce Up Your Bath

Are you thinking of changing the décor in your bathroom? Why not consider a lighthouse décor? There are many great products available to decorate your bath in lighthouses and you will feel you are at the beach all year long!

In deciding on your décor, it is best to start with one great accessory and build your décor around that. For the bathroom, I would suggest you pick something for the wall, like one of the photos in the lens below, or perhaps a colorful lighthouse shower curtain to be your centerpiece. You can then add complimenting accessories to fill out your lighthouse bath décor.

In this lens, I have made several suggestions for your décor. You will note that I show a lot of harbor lights décor, they have a wonderful line of matching products that would really add to a great lighthouse bathroom.

Happy Decorating!

Photographs add Focal Point

Set the stage for your décor

Choose a favorite lighthouse photograph and then base your lighthouse décor around the photo.

I have several lighthouses photos on the walls throughout my house. In addition to adding to the décor of the rooms they are great conversation pieces and guests are always commenting on the photos and the lighthouses.

I like to display items and photos that have meaning to me and my husband. Since we have visited over 100 lighthouses in our retirement you will find lighthouses throughout our house. When we have guests they are always making comments about them and it starts conversations about places we have visited. It is a great way to keep the memories alive.

The photo below is one I took of Split rock Lighthouse in Minnesota.

This is a favorite lighthouse photo of mine.  This lighthouse is said to be one of the most photographed lighthouses on the Great Lakes.

Beautiful Shower Curtain - The "centerpiece" of your bath

This shower curtain will certainly be the center piece of your bathroom lighthouse décor. Space wise a shower curtain takes up a considerable space in the bathroom. Why not use this space to set the tone for your décor. Just add a few lighthouse towels and perhaps a lighthouse accessory or two and you are all set with a great lighthouse themed bath.

Don't Forget the Matching Hooks - Compliment your shower curtain

These hooks are great in combination with the matching shower curtain or if you prefer use these hooks with a solid color or clear shower curtain to add a touch of lighthouse decor.

Clever shower rings help to bring your décor together.

 

Colorful Toilet Seat Cover and Rug Set - Bathroom rugs

This 3 piece bathroom toilet seat and rug set is the perfect addition for your nautical themed bath. The sailboats in the waters around the lighthouse make a charming image for this set.

With these bright designs they could also serve as the focal point and build your other lighthouse décor around these colorful rugs. Perhaps a soap dish and some towels and you will be all set with a beautiful lighthouse bath.

Brightly colored lighthouse and sailboats make this a great choice.

 

Bathroom Accessories - Accessorize your bath

These colorful lighthouse accessories will add to your bath décor. These would be great in a black and white bathroom. The touch of red gives a festive look.

Ceramic Bath Accessory Set - Nautical bath décor

This great three piece set would be a wonderful addition to your lighthouse bath.

Bath Towels - Harbor lights bath

These towels would make a great addition to your lighthouse bathroom. They come in a variety of sizes.

The Outer Banks of North Carolina have several historic lighthouses. Each of them were painted differently so the ships captains could tell where they were along the coastline. On these colorful towels you can see the different designs.

Hereford Inlet Lighthouse

This beautiful Victorian lighthouse would make a great theme for your bath décor.  This lighthouse is surrounded by gardens so you could do a floral/lighthouse theme.

      I've always liked the idea of living in a lighthouse. One by the ocean being buffeted by waves. But at my age, I would need a lift to get to the top to change the light bulbs.

      Great suggestions. I actually live 10 miles from the Tybee Island Lighthouse and my bathroom has a print of the Lighthouse on the wall, to complement the seashell shower curtain. Perfect for my Georgia Coastal home.

      I actually have a lighthouse picture in my bathroom -- after living on Tybee Island, GA for 13 years, I naturally ended up with a Tybee Lighthouse picture purchased in a gift shop on River Street in Savannah! I also have some small Tybee Lighthouse ornaments. After seeing all the delightful lighthouse ideas listed here, I think I need some Lighthouse bath towels to go with my picture. Great idea!
