Whether you live by the seaside, in the city or suburbia, there’s nothing like the easy elegance of a coastal-style bathroom to soak away your troubles. Here we present a selection of swoon-worthy spaces sure to inspire…
1. Room with a view
This ensuite (above, photographed by Andy Macpherson) takes advantage of its position on the home's upper level, looking out onto sand dunes and bushland. Privacy is provided by remote-controlled retractable ‘Luminette’ privacy sheers from Luxaflex.
2. Only natural
Ensconced in a canopy of palm and pandanus trees, this bathroom is a vision of relaxed luxury, adorned with a stand-out wicker pendant from Biku and a pair of Beacon Lighting pendants flanking the vanity.
3. Fresh approach
A cascading green fern is a colourful counterpoint to this all-white space, clad in marble with handy inset storage.
4. Easy living
Low-maintenance surfaces are king in holiday home bathrooms – who wants to clean when the beach beckons? These 600mm x 600mm ‘Bianco Carrara’ splashback tiles from Amber resemble marble, but are made of porcelain, so there’s no need to seal them. Bonus – the large format is easy to clean due to fewer grout lines.
5. Texture takeover
There’s nothing remotely utilitarian about this light and lovely ensuite: large-format honed marble Shima ‘Scuro’ tiles from Skheme make a stylish choice for the floor and walls, while touches of timber are in keeping with the modern coastal style.
