If there’s one thing that holds true about apartments is that the bathrooms are super drab, and extremely boring. A lot of the time they’re an off-white color or something else equally as neutral, and there’s just no vibrancy or any sort of personality to these bathrooms. I know when we moved into our newest apartment that the bathrooms were just way too sterile-looking, and needed a bit of color to make them seem a bit more inviting, and not like you’re sitting in a hospital bathroom. So, I added some cute themes to the both of our bathrooms, which really helped in giving them life, and making it seem like someone, in fact, does inhabit our apartment. One thing I think more people need to jump on board with is having cool bathroom themes in their apartments. I know you can’t do as much as you could with your own house, seeing as you can’t paint the walls or replace lighting fixtures in apartments, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a cool theme in your bathroom. You just have to get a little more creative with it. Hopefully, these six cool bathroom themes will give you some awesome inspiration.
1. Dolphin Theme
Who doesn’t like dolphins? They’re super adorable, not to mention friendly sea creatures that are basically like underwater dogs. Having a dolphin-themed bathroom is fun, creative and brings a bit of the ocean life into your apartment. There’s plenty of possibilities too when it comes down to decorating your bathroom with dolphins. You can buy a dolphin shower curtain, which will immediately help in sprucing up your bathroom space. You can also buy cute dolphin-themed bathroom accessories like a toothbrush and soap dispenser. If you want to take this cool bathroom theme even further, you can buy matching bathmats and towels as well. Plus, if you have small children, they’ll absolutely love the dolphins! You honestly can’t go wrong with decorating your apartment bathroom with dolphins.
2. Pine Tree Theme
I feel like this is one theme that wouldn’t be very common in most bathrooms, which makes it unique. This cool bathroom theme would feature pine trees in a misty setting, which I love the look of because it feels very serene, and like I’m deep up in the mountains somewhere. It almost looks like you’re in the upper Northwest, when in reality you could be living down in the Southwest. There’re some great possibilities with this theme where you can find some cool pine tree wall art to hang up in your bathroom, and you could also find a similar-looking shower curtain to complement the art with. Pine tree towels can also add to this cool bathroom theme, and really help in tying the whole look together. You could also incorporate some mountain-themed bathroom accessories into the pine tree theme seeing as they usually go hand-in-hand with one another. You can’t get anymore tranquil than with this cool bathroom theme.
3. Watermelon Theme
There’s just something about watermelons that makes them super cute! I’m not sure what it is exactly, maybe it’s because companies like to incorporate watermelons into things like jewelry and clothing? Plus, this is definitely one of the tastiest fruits, if not the tastiest. So, since watermelons are already so popular, why not have a watermelon-themed bathroom in your apartment? I think this cool bathroom theme is quite adorable, not to mention playful! You can easily buy a watermelon shower curtain, along with some charming matching bathmats to complete the look. You don’t need much with this cool bathroom theme, as watermelons are already so vibrant in color. But if you do want to go all-out with this theme, then you can get a matching soap dispenser and toothbrush holder, or even a matching trashcan if you so desire. Having a watermelon-themed bathroom will bring a taste of summer to your apartment bathroom all year around!
4. Horse Theme
Living out here in the West, I’m naturally drawn to horseback riding, and horses in general. They’re very majestic creatures, and can be some of the best companions you can have. Which got me thinking that having a horse-themed bathroom would make for a very cool idea where you can bring a bit of the Wild West into your apartment. With this cool bathroom theme, you can buy a horse-themed shower curtain along with matching bathroom accessories, like a bar soap dish or a tissue box cover. You can also buy matching towels to truly bring that theme home! There’s plenty of different horses you can also incorporate into this cool bathroom theme; you could have all Arabian horses if you so desire, or even Clydesdales! I love the versatility of using horses as a theme for your bathroom.
5. Galaxy Theme
If you’re a lover of all things astronomy-related, then this cool bathroom theme is just for you! I myself am a huge fan of astronomy, especially when it comes to galaxies. There’s nothing more beautiful in this universe than a colorful galaxy full of millions of stars, and hundreds of thousands of planets. An astronomy-themed bathroom in your apartment would be quite the vibrant spectacle, in a good way of course! Just like with the watermelon theme, this cool bathroom theme doesn’t take much to get the full effect of what you’re going for. All you truly need is a galaxy shower curtain along with some matching bathmats, and what’s great about going with the galaxy theme, you have endless possibilities of what your bathroom can end up looking like! You can easily match this theme to your favorite color as well. Bring a bit of the beauty of space home to your bathroom apartment!
6. Seashell Theme
I realize that it’s another sea-themed bathroom, but this one is more for those of us who love the beach, specifically the seashells often found on the beach. This is another cool bathroom theme that you can definitely get very creative with! There are so many different varieties of seashells that are found across the world, and you can easily incorporate any of those into a cool bathroom theme. One aspect about this theme that I like is that you can also include bathroom accessories, like a Q-tip holder or soap dispenser, that have a mix of seashells, seahorses and starfish, with the seashells still being the dominant theme of your bathroom. It adds a unique touch that works extremely well with the overall theme. Naturally, you’ll want to buy a matching seashell shower curtain to tie the whole theme together. A seashell theme would make any boring apartment bathroom simply beautiful.
