Have you ever had the pleasure of walking along the shores of a pristine and gorgeous beach?
Have you ever had the thrilling experience of snorkeling or scuba diving on a reef enjoying the countless amounts of sea life swarming around you?
Now you may be wondering what do both of these experiences have in common? They are both activities of one of nature’s most loved and intriguing animals, the sea turtle.
Granted sea turtles aren’t exactly moon-eyed tourists enjoying the sights, but these things are still an integral part of this species’ life.
In this article, we’ll be looking at the design of the humble sea turtle along with its surroundings and using 13 tips, create an incredible sea turtle themed bathroom complete with sea turtle themed bathroom décor.
Now without further ado, let’s dive in!
Create a Sea Turtle Themed Bathroom- Choose an Appropriate Color Pallet
We want to start on the right foot, or ‘flipper’ so we should ensure that we choose colors that complement each other as well as relate back to our theme in some way.
If you don’t want your overall décor to be overly flashy, try using elements in your color scheme to create a more subtle and muted bathroom space.
Sea turtles as far as sea creatures go, won’t be winning any awards for being the brightest or most colorful but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t still a range of bright and vivid colors that can be used from their immediate environments.
Let’s ‘sea’ what some of them are and how we can incorporate them into our sea turtle themed bathroom.
The tried-and-true color for creating an appropriate setting for any aquatic or marine scenery and environment.
There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that when we think of sea turtles, we are immediately reminded of a beach or ocean scape.
From the vast blue of both sea and sky, this color is an expansive part of a sea turtles daily views since they do spend more than half their lives in the open ocean. So why not make a sea turtle themed bathroom reminiscent of their majestic aquatic home?
Any shade of blue could do the heavy lifting for this job but concentrate on shades that fall between blues and greens to create a tasteful and vivid blend, that could bring to life your bathroom wall.
A tip to try is instead of one flat color you can incorporate an Ombre, abstract effect with various shades of any blue and blue color materials of your choice.
Patterned, Marble and Mosaic styled tiles to wallpapers, they’ll make an even more striking and appealing ocean wave look.
Also, look into bold bathroom décor and bathroom accessories to help create a sea turtle theme turtle bathroom you’ll ‘turtle-lly’ love!
Why put emphasis on sand as a potential bathroom color? Not only is an important and obvious coastal feature where turtles live, it also doubles as a nursery for sea turtles’ eggs and hatchlings.
Female sea turtles return to the shores where they were previously hatched to lay their eggs and so the cycle continues for generations. Sand’s no doubt plays a great role in a sea turtles’ life.
Now ‘sand’ doesn’t sound much like a color name but it is! Truth is beach sand comes in a wider range of colors than you’d think.
Its mineral content, that is its inorganic components, is the reason for its brilliance in color and as a result, sands can range from stark white, pink, orange, purple and get this, rainbow. That’s pretty neat…literally! So sky’s the limit with your options of vivid color choice.
The easiest option is the common and classic pale cream or golden sand but if you’re up for the challenge and want to make your theme even more unique and creative, these other options can deliver that guarantee for ‘shore.’
Mosaic wall tiles in your choice of color can definitely deliver an artsy, glassy look of sand or textured wallpaper can deliver a grainy look and feel for a more rugged shoreline look with coastal bathroom elements.
Get your hands on some bathroom accessories with either a sand color, sand in the design or can display actual sand as a decorative piece to help accentuate your themed bathroom space and bring out the sea turtles’ environment even more.
Brown is a great neutral color that like green, helps harmonize colors and elements in a bathroom space.
It’s listed as a potential color choice for our sea turtle themed bathroom because it’s the color of the shell and body of most sea turtles.
Most sea turtles have variations of brown depending on the specific species, from reddish-browns like carmine to greenish-grown like olive which makes it a perfect choice for a prospective color.
You can choose any shade or variation of brown depending on what tone and atmosphere you want to set for your themed bathroom.
Like the other colors you can decide between a flat shade or a combination of browns to highlight and contrast different elements in your bathroom space and stay in line with your theme.
Rock/Stone elements are another interesting feature that could be added that falls under shades of browns and will help bring out a more nature like feel and give your bathroom a wild edge.
Sand is made from the erosion of rocks but not all rocks get eroded away completely.
Whole rocks can still be found on and along many beaches and can therefore be an apt and appropriate feature to add into your sea turtle bathroom theme with a nice mixture of a coastal bathroom. Accessories that also include shades or brown and rock elements will also help bolster and emphasis the overall visuals if the space.
White is a constant contender for potential colors for bathroom themes because of its great versatility and compatibility with other colors no matter their shade.
White is great if you want to maintain a simple design and minimalist look in your bathroom as well as cut down on the amount of overall work and or renovations done to make your sea turtle themed bathroom dream a reality.
Sea turtles, while the shells and bodies are mostly covered in brown as mentioned above are actually dual colored. Their underbellies and underneath their fins are a lighter shade, usually white giving them camouflage abilities.
White can also be paired with blues for your ocean scape since sea foam is white.
Again, there is a type of sand that is white as well as rocks and cliffs around beaches so it can be incorporated with other sand colors to help create a coastal bathroom reminiscent of a sea turtles’ environment.
So having white in your bathroom, either standing on its own or in tantum with any of other of the listed colors will definitely add an extra dimension to each and further transform the overall look and design quality of your bathroom.
Your walls will look divine in Mosaic and Marble wallpaper while your accessories bring even more elegance and style to an otherwise boring bathroom space.
Remember these colors are only guidelines to help you narrow down potential color schemes and designs. They represent only a few of the many potential blueprints that can help you build your dream sea turtle themed bathroom.
You can choose which colors and color combinations would best suit your preferences. Feel free to also use other colors, materials, patterns, and décor styles that you may want to see more of or you may think are a better match with your vision for this theme.
No matter what you choose, you can no doubt pay a unique and beautiful tribute to the beloved sea creatures.
