It’s Showtime! Are you a fan of the quirky and macabre world of Beetlejuice? If so, why not bring that eerie charm into your home decor by creating a Beetlejuice themed bathroom? I recently watched the orignal movie and am getting very excited about the sequel that is coming out in 2024. Since I love a good themed bathroom I figured why not go all out and pay homage to the beloved cult classic film. This delightfully spooky theme can add a touch of eccentricity and whimsy to your home. Let me take you on a tour of my Beetlejuice themed bathroom and give you some inspiration for your loo. Check out the video and then learn more about the different items I used for this transformation below:
Color Palette: Black, White, and Pops of Green
The signature color scheme of Beetlejuice revolves around black and white stripes with vibrant green and purple accents. To replicate this iconic look in your bathroom, start with painting the walls in alternating vertical black and white stripes. Consider using wallpaper or removable decals for a more straightforward application. For a modern twist, you can use a more subtle gray and white striped pattern too.
Painting this bathroom isn’t an option for me at the moment so I added a black and white striped shower curtain from Amazon, I didn’t want to permanently alter the cabinets so I used black electrical tape to create stripes. The tape can be removed if I want to change up the theme again.
For the other accessories and lighting I focused on shades of bright green and purple. I got many of the items from Dollartree.
If you’re a true Beetlejuice aficionado, consider displaying memorabilia from the movie as decor pieces. This could include figurines of Beetlejuice and Lydia, a sandworm plush, or a miniature replica of the Maitland’s model town. These items will add character and a personal touch to your themed bathroom. The giant flashing sign is from Spirit Halloween. I also puchased the Sandworm trinket dish, hand towels and Miss Argentina figurine from Spirit. The small Beetlejuice plush is from Lowe’s Home Improvement Store and is actually a squeaky dog toy.
Proper lighting is crucial in setting the right mood for your Beetlejuice bathroom. Install dimmable lights or use quirky lampshades that create interesting patterns on the walls when the lights are on. Green-tinted lightbulbs can add a ghostly glow to the space, enhancing the eerie atmosphere. We have Alexa connected smartbulbs from Amazon and I hooked them up in the bathroom with one green and one purple. Under the vanity is rope LED lights and hanging from the lace curtain is battery operated lights from Dollartree. In the vanity there are a few color changing battery operated tea lights from Dollartree.
On the closet door I used some “caution” tape from the hardware store and added a Beetlejuice sign from Amazon. The skull is a planter I made from a $5 skull from the At Home store and the other little cutout are from an Amazon party kit that is Beetlejuice themed. The shrunken head makeup brush holder is actually a 3D printed planter I bought off of Etsy. I also purchased a sticker pack from Etsy and put them on the soap bottle and mirror.
We already had the rug. We bought it from a Facebook ad years ago. And the candleabra is from Michaels Halloween several years ago as well. I added neon green dollar store candles.
With these tips, you’re well on your way to creating a Beetlejuice themed bathroom that is both creepy and charming. Let your imagination run wild and have fun adding spooky elements to your bathroom, making it a space that’s uniquely yours and pays homage to one of the greatest cult films of all time.
