Creating a coastal themed tiling scheme

To make sure you really capture the coastal essence with your tiling scheme, you should consider:

  • the tiling colours
  • using a mosaic layout
  • adding textures

Coastal themed tiling colours

Blues and turquoise is an obvious choice for a coastal themed bathroom taking inspiration from the sky and of course the sea. However, dont neglect the netural tones. For floors especially, natural coloured tiles such as creams and beige’s can work very effectively. If you want to create a contemporary twist, consider natural stone effect tiles, or even natural timber.


Bathroom mosaics are a popular choice for splash-blacks and feature walls in bathrooms. If you mix and match various shades of blues and greens you can create an impressive coastal themed tiling feature. For a unique blend, why not add yellow tiles for a hint of that foreign sunshine.


Whenever you are creating a themed room you should consider the realistic textures and try to incorporate these into the room. With tiles you can be true to the textures and incorporate them in a variety of ways. For example, timber effect tiles, and natural stone effect tiles can be incredible to add to the depth and create a sense of the environment you are creating. Tiles with this effect can be more suitable for bathrooms than using natural wood or stone, as the tiles are hard-wearing and fully waterproof. As a result, they don’t need as much maintenance.
