There are so many options out there when it comes to decorating children’s rooms, it can be hard to know which route to go down. Sometimes the best way to create a bedroom that stands out amongst all the pink princess decor and football wallpaper is to choose a specific theme, and if your little one loves going to the beach, why not bring that element into their everyday life? If you want to know how to transform their room into a seaside themed sanctuary, then take a look at these easy tips!
Start with the walls
Making the walls look as summery as possible is a good first step in this makeover. For this, you have the choice of either painting the walls in a dreamy blue shade and getting creative with some DIY clouds, or take the simpler route and find a blue sky patterned wallpaper. Another idea is to find a patterned wallpaper with imagery of starfish or simple nautical patterns to set the tone of the room.
Create some sea and sand
The most distinctive part of a seaside theme is the sea and sand itself, and there’s lots of ways you can bring this into your child’s bedroom. If the room features wooden flooring, consider painting it with blue and yellow shades. Or if you’re looking for an easier (and less permanent!) solution, look for blue rugs and choose the one that you feel best represents the sea.
Find nautical bedding
Beach balls, anchors and sea creatures all make for great patterns when choosing the right bedding for a seaside room. Alternatively, if you can’t get your hands on any bed sets in this style, simply using bedding in blue or yellow shades will also fit the beachy feel. Also consider materials when looking for the right bedding, such as a blue throw with a silky finish for a perfect ocean feel.
Add the final touches
Now that you have the majority of the room sorted, add your finishing touches with some seaside accessories. A simple yellow light shade that mimics the sun can really bring the theme together, as can details like treasure chests and nautical patterned bean bag chairs. If you want to add some DIY magic to the space, there are lots of beach themed crafts you can try out with the help of some old household bits and bobs!
