Your bathroom is a room that lends itself to fun and themed decorations without taking away from fancier decor in other parts of your home. One way to decorate your bathroom is to use an ocean theme. You can modify this theme for a kid's or adult's bathroom, depending on your personal preference.

Sponge Painting

Create the look of the ocean by painting your bathroom walls using a sponge-painting technique. Prepare your wall by removing all wallpaper. Paint a few coats of dark blue on all walls. Allow this to dry and choose any lighter shade of blue to use for the next layer of paint. Dip your sponge lightly in the paint. You can purchase a sponge for this technique at your local hardware or paint store. Using a circular motion, dab the sponge over your dark wall base colour until you have covered all walls. The more times you go over the dark wall with the sponge, the less the base colour will show.

Blue and Green Tiles

Enhance your ocean-themed bathroom with blue and green mosaic tiles that look like ocean water. Purchase enough green and blue mosaic tiles at your local hardware store to cover one accent wall in your bathroom. Purchase a matching grout colour to use after you adhere the tiles to the wall. Follow the instructions for placing the purchased tiles on your wall or pay a contractor to do this for you. After the tile wall is complete, you will have a wall that will remind you of the glistening ocean.

Fish Shower Curtain

You can find many pre-made ocean-themed shower curtains. However, it is not difficult to create your own. Purchase any light blue or white cloth shower curtain and a variety of fabric paints. If you are not artistically inclined, purchase various fish and sea life stencils at your favourite craft store. Use the special fabric paint and paint sea creatures such as fish and seahorses on your shower curtain in any pattern or design that is pleasing to you. Tie in the colours from your walls or use bright accent colours to enhance your ocean theme. When you hang your curtain, place a vinyl shower curtain behind your creation to protect it from the moisture of the shower.

Ocean-Themed Accessories

Finish off your ocean-themed bathroom by purchasing a variety of sea life and ocean accessories. Go to local discount stores and search for pottery, seashells or picture frames that fit your ocean theme. Purchase blue towels and bath mats or ones that have fish or sea animals embroidered on them. Place bath salts and bath beads in a glass fish bowl and set them out for your use.
