Why No Colors?

If you are designing a beach bedroom for kids, it’s highly likely that they want various colors in the bedroom. And yet a beach theme!

Since we are talking about colors, we mustn’t forget the neutral colors definitely.

Especially when you are decorating a beach-themed room for adults, neutral colors can do the magic.

As an adult, it’s likely that you don’t want to see a lot of colors around and have chosen the beach theme owing to the simplicity it brings to the space.

So, doubtlessly use the simplicity of the neutral colors (except black) to your advantage.

General Guidelines To Create A Beach-Themed Bedroom

One of the major reasons we all LOVE beach-themed bedrooms is the casual and relaxing feel they have. That feeling is not the result of just the furniture or the colors, it’s the combination of various things like the color palette, the space available, the use of textures, etc.

To ensure that you create the best coastal bedroom for yourself, have a look at some of the rules below for creating a beachy bedroom that’s calming and hands down comforting. Here we go:

Choose The Right Color Scheme

The right choice of colors is the first thing to consider when designing a coastal-themed bedroom.

Colors have their own effect on our psychology and since we are creating a bedroom that is relaxing and calming, we ideally want to go for those colors that promote those feelings.

Ideally, those colors are that of the elements of the beach. Broadly, the sea, waves, and the sand. So the colors that you can’t go wrong with, are blue, white and light brown.

You might want to use white and blue as the base colors. That would make the room very soothing and monochromatic.

If in case, you wish to make it into something more, feel free to add some touches of green, brown, or any other color, but in moderation.

Take, for example, if you are looking for beach bedroom ideas for girls, you’d find some bedrooms with pink as the dominant color. That is good, in a certain way as girls can relate to pink more than they can relate to any other color. For them, that’s relaxing. Purpose solved.

The takeaway is, to use colors that make you feel calm and relaxed. Above all, use them in moderation. You won’t go wrong, that way.

Keep It Spacious

Inscribe it to your heart, ‘to give a calming feeling to any space, give it space.’

Don’t try to stuff your room with all the beach decor. Let your decor be as natural as the beach is.

Only add those decor items that you feel, are highly important and will help you in pulling together the theme.

Anything that does not help you with that or seems to take up any extra space, throw it away. So far as this theme is concerned, that’ll be the best decision you’ll make.

Use Varied Textures

To give depth to a room, use different textures. This is a simple rule for designing awe-inspiring interiors and if followed correctly, you’ll feel the difference. Literally.

Since the beach theme is not just about ‘how it looks,’ but more about ‘how it feels’, we ought to fix the feeling.

Now, how will you do that? By using different textured fabrics. For example, you can use jute carpets, a linen bedsheet, sheer curtains, and net fabric for your canopy bed or fishnet wall decor.

There ate many ways to incorporate textures in your room. It’s all about creativity! So be creative!

Simplicity Is The Key

Simplicity can never go wrong when the feeling of calmness and composure in the interiors is concerned.

Whether it be the simplicity in your chosen colors or the fabrics and furniture you are using, prioritize it.

Use simple fabrics. Buy simple furniture. Choose simple colors.

And we bet, your bedroom will become your dream bedroom- a beach bedroom!

Natural Light Can Make It Easy

When we talk about simple themes for bedrooms (or any room in that case) or the themes that are closely related to nature, you can’t afford to get away without some natural light. Actually, plenty of it!

Even in maximum traditional or modern coastal bedroom ideas across the internet, you’d notice that most of them have a source of natural light. That is what makes them look vibrant and lively.

So once you have your heart set on this theme, give a heartfelt invitation to the sunlight. Once that’s in, you’re sorted.

Use Fragrances

Okay! It’s nowhere written that you must use fragrances in your bedroom to make it look pretty since they have more to do with the feel of the space and less to do with how it looks!

But since, we are focusing on the feeling equally, why not enhance it with some fragrances?

You can use an aroma diffuser (it’s really a worth-it investment) or reed diffuser, or some incense sticks or room freshener or scented candles to make your room smell amazing. There is a hell of a lot of options to choose from!

Try it and thank us later!

Pay Attention To The Walls

There is this common slogan that we have (you can find this in almost every post we write! Sorry!), ‘the moment a person enters a room, he notices one of the two things. It’s either the bed or the walls.’ So, pay attention to them!

You can consider having a beachy wall mural up on the wall, or some beach sceneries would look serene too. You can decorate the walls with some shells like a shell mirror or a shell wall hanging. Or, if nothing, how about the shiplap wall panels?

The point is, to take good care of the walls. They can make or break a theme! (Here goes another common dialogue!)
