Imagine starting your day with the sensation of waking up in a serene beach vacation setting. How, you ask? With beach themed bedroom ideas, you can transform your everyday space into a coastal paradise. Whether it’s just for your bedroom or if you’re bold enough to extend the beach theme to your entire house, it’s a brilliant way to create a continuous seaside atmosphere.
Even though reality might rudely interrupt when you wake up to a 38-degree March morning with traces of last night’s snowfall outside, your beach-themed bedroom will keep your thoughts warm and centered on pleasant sandy islands. The ambiance created by a beach themed bedroom doesn’t only aesthetically appeal but also instills a tranquil state of mind – making it a wonderful start to any day.
What Gives A Beach Themed Bedroom that Beach Vibe?
It’s not hard to imagine what goes into a beach themed bedroom. The bright colors of the ocean, blue colors & greens plus the natural neutral color of sand are going to play important roles.
Your particular brand of beach vacation might be more cottage-y with painted furniture that looks handed down or picked up from the thrift store. Or there might be natural wood tones.
Sea creatures and seashells and other natural elements are perfect for this coastal style. The decor is a reflection of the ocean or lake that waits outside the door, which means there are a lot of different ways you can go with this beach idea in your own home. Of course, having tons of natural light is one of the easiest ways to finish off the beach theme room.
11 Beach-Themed Bedroom Ideas for A Bedroom That Feel Like Vacay
#1 – Textured Beachy Bedroom
The rattan bench at the end of the bed and textured pillows give this room that is basic light blue and white a lot interest and depth
Without those pieces, the room is just a pretty blue and white room. With those pieces, it’s clearly beach themed. You could also get the same affect with a jute rug.
#2 – Sand & Water Ocean Themed Bedroom
This room is so calm and relaxing. I love the touches of blue and white splashes, but this room is mostly about the sandy natural color.
Oh, and that chandelier. It’s fancy, but it’s not too fancy to belong in a relaxed beach themed bedroom. I found a rattan light fixture from Amazon that works just as well too.
And the abstract painting of the ocean is a perfect reminder of the beach.
#3 – Upcycled Family Vacation Home
This is the kind of beach themed bedroom that I love. The painted furniture reminds me of a cottage on the Cape. Everything is sort of hobbled together from hand me downs and thrifted finds that have been restored or repainted. The throw pillow doesn’t match anything perfectly. You can easily incorporate so many different design ideas and a variety of colors.
There are vibrant colors pictured; I love that the yellow table sort of stands out while all the blues kind of just hang out in the background.
This is a room I can see in a cottage more than a Master Bedroom at your every day house, but it is lovely.
This is the perfect way to get a beach theme bedroom on a budget. I’ve done this successfully by shopping lots of garage sales. You can pick up a different things here and there until you have a whole decor store in your basement storage (speaking for a friend!). What?! I’m always ready for a bedroom makeover!
#4 – Natural Beachy Bedroom
This beachy bedroom looks high end and expensive, especially the modern headboard. I love the sort of sun bleached looking wood tones in this room.
The use of natural materials and natural fibers really sets the tone. The light fixtures look like granite, the wood is unfinished looking and the little bit of palm found in the vase on the night stand is a more subtle look than the typical palm leaf themed bedding or wall paper that most people use.
#5 – Cottage Beachy
You can do seaside beach, or you can do lakeside beach and this bedroom is definitely lakeside beach.
The mix of different yellow bed linens are perfectly and purposefully not matched. So, this lakeside beach decor is another look you could easily do on a budget. I love having an excuse to do fun diy projects!
I can feel myself getting into this bed after sitting on the deck watching the sun set over the lake.
#6 – Driftwood Chic
It’s not actually driftwood, but this headboard gives the feel of driftwood and that paired with all of the natural light in this room make it very beachy.
That little make shift table sitting on top of magazines at the foot of the bed is pretty awesome.
And those wood vases above the headboard are my definitely my favorite things in this room.
And I love love love the grey color palette and white bedding; the ocean view picture above the bed is even black and white which is so atypical. Ok, I basically love every single thing about this room!
#7 – Bold Beachy
I do love a bold room and this room is definitely that. The black accents against the white are fresh and interesting.
The bug wall art is fun, but I don’t think it would give a lot of people a beachy vibe. The right accessories are important!
#8 – Turquoise Ocean Themed Bedroom
Turquoise is a happy beachy color. It is the color of the ocean, sometimes, and there’s different shades of it here along with some other pretty blues.
That glass lamp on the turquoise bed table is beautiful, but my favorite thing in this room is the color framed above the bed.
This is a classic beachy bedroom. This textured knit turquoise pouf and sea-inspired candle holder from Amazon would fit well.
#9 – Boho Beachy Bedroom
Boho and beachy make a great pair. Boho is all about collected and on vacation we do tend to collect things. Especially at the beach (rocks, glass, driftwood, seashells).
This room feels like an easy place to have a sunburn. Like somewhere nearby there’s an aloe plant to soothe the burn.
All these light colors would also translate well for a little girls room!
And that bed is pretty spectacular. Check out this similar rattan headboard from Amazon. You won’t even be able to handle it; it’s so gorge!
#10 – Navy Blue & White Beach Themed Bedroom
Navy and white are very maritime and nautical, so they make for a great color scheme (navy blue is my all time favorite decor color!). It’s legit making me want to go buy a navy blue throw like in the picture.
It’s accented with turquoise here which is sort of unexpected, but is great for a coastal feel. Dark blue can be a little stuffy, but the turquoise kind of relaxes it.
This rope mirror looks like it was made for this nautical bedroom theme!
