12 Tropical Bathrooms with Summer Style

Looking for a summer escape? What if you could create an exotic getaway inside of your own home? Give your bathroom a tropical update, and that dream just might be a reality! Today we spotlight 12 tropical bathrooms that celebrate summer style. From powder rooms featuring the colors of the sea to spa-like bathrooms surrounded by lush plants, these spaces will take you to another place…and hopefully inspire you to create a special interior of your own!

Inspired by the Sea

What better way to celebrate tropical powder room style than by channeling the mystery of the sea… And that’s exactly what the bathroom below does, with the help of custom-designed glass mosaic tiles that evoke the blues of the Caribbean. Note how a gradient of color is created from ceiling to floor. [from Susan Jablon Mosaics]

Next we see the softest shades of blue in this beachy space. Add a capiz shell chandelier and fishnet-style draperies, and the sea has truly been brought indoors. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the sea is right outdoors as well… [from Interiorholic]

Blue and white tropical bathroom

Even if your powder room doesn’t feature an ocean of tropical references, a couple of special touches can get the job done. Try adding guest towels in shades of turquoise, and incorporate a mirror that’s as magical as an enchanting sea creature, as shown in the beachy bathroom below. [from Lonny]

Surrounded by Plants

Next we feature a series of powder rooms that take the addition of plant life to a whole new level. In the Hualalai home below, the bathing area opens up to a patio filled with tropical greenery. Take a vacation from the comfort of your tub! [from Knudson Interiors]

Contemporary tropical bathroom

Oh, if only every bathroom opened onto its own tropical garden! When the area just outside of the powder room is this good, it almost doesn’t matter what’s indoors. Nevertheless, this space celebrates the power of verdant greenery with mosaic-style green tiles. [from Lonny]

Then there are the spaces that bring the garden inside! This next featured bathroom includes a range of indoor tropical greenery, including the leafy plant Licuala, which adds an emerald green glow to the space. There’s nothing like taking a bath in the rain forest! [from Eduarda Correa]

Decked out in Wooden Details

We end with a group of powder rooms that celebrate the art of incorporating tropical, earthy touches into the mix. This bathroom from Zak Architecture is filled with natural details, such as cabinetry and ceiling beams in shades of golden brown:
