Coastal Bathroom Renovation Plans
Our house is almost 30 years old and in the 11 years we’ve lived here, we’ve never touched either of our full bathrooms. Let me tell you – both of them could really use an update! So I whipped up some coastal bathroom renovation plans and now I’m ready to share them!
Last weekend, I finally stripped the old, dated wallpaper that was in my kid’s bathroom. My original plan was to just remove the wallpaper and paint but after spending several hours in there with time to think, I schemed up a new plan that I love!
I knew for sure that I’d want to paint the bathroom with my favorite white paint (Sherwin Williams Extra White). It’s a small room with no natural light so painting it white will keep it light and bright. However, I also know that just painting it all white might get a little dull. I considered doing planked walls but I wasn’t sure that we wanted to take on that big of a project. One of my kids also hates using the fan when they shower so I was also a bit concerned about the steam warping the boards too.

So I decided that a good compromise would be to do board and batten half walls using lattice strips. We did something similar (without the strips) in our coastal powder room makeover. But again, just painting it all white would be boring. I would love to do the bottom white and wallpaper the upper half (see my favorite coastal wallpaper options here!) but I *really* do not want to wallpaper again. I love the look but hate the work!
After with the wallpaper gone
So I settled on painting the bottom half of the walls a color and leaving the top half white. That will add interest and make it visually appealing without adding tons of work! I love what The Turquoise Home did with her walls here and she has a great tutorial that I will be using too!
I built my entire coastal bathroom renovation plans around this floral shower curtain. That might seem silly but since it’s the main focal point when you walk in the room, I wanted it to be something I really liked. I’m not into kid’s themed bathrooms (nothing wrong with them, it’s just not my thing!) but in here I was going for a bright and cheerful Palm Beach-y, coastal chic vibe.
I’m hoping to easily remove the giant wall mirror and replace them with these rattan mirrors from Serena and Lily. They are my long time favorites! I own this wicker wastebasket already and it’s my favorite! I already ordered these white bath mats and they’re perfect. We need something really flat in order for the door to be able to open and close and these fit the bill.
I also already ordered this Hand Sands print from Carly Tabak. It was on super sale so I was really excited to snag it. I’m planning on framing it with just a simple white inexpensive frame. These gold hooks from Anthropologie will be perfect to hang towels on the wall and I’d love to either change the colors of our existing faucets with Rub n Buff or to replace them with these brass faucets. This dip-dyed stool has always been a favorite of mine and I’d love to find a little spot for it!
Future Renovation Plans
From a long-term perspective, I’d eventually like to switch out the countertops with a white quartz, the shower tiles with a colored glass tile and the floors with something simple like a marble-looking tile. From a budget perspective, I’m not sure what I might be able to get accomplished this year. We’ve never done anything like replacing tile and I’m not sure it’s a project I want to tackle ourselves. I’m hoping maybe I could at least do the counters and floors this year but we will see!
