A coastal chic bedroom style can be created wherever you live with the help of our collection of inspiring beach bedroom design ideas and tips on how to achieve the look. Bunk rooms, island-style suites, gorgeous guest quarters, each of these beach-inspired sleeping spaces has a look worthy of imitation. A beach inspired room design should create a calm and peaceful feel in the space. Be careful not to go too crazy with the theme and keep your accessories low-key. Muted colors and light fabrics are perfect in coastal style rooms. If you have dark furniture, consider using a lighter neutral color on the wall to warm up the space. Consider using a painting as a focal point in your bedroom and pull your colors from it for a theme, carrying it out throughout the room. Be sure to add texture to your room with pillows or rugs. Bedding for your beach themed room should be inspired by the colors at the beach, but you do not have to have seashells or surfers on it.

In kid-friendly spaces such as the image above, there’s no such thing as pattern overload. Combine stripes, polka dots, and prints with chenilles and cottons for a lighthearted look. Pick a two-tone palette, such as green and blue, and use several shades of each hue.
A piece of salvaged crown molding serves as a shelf and holds a collection of sea coral above an understated metal bed.
Boost character in a beach bedroom with simple board walls. Mix up the look by placing some boards vertically and some horizontally, as though they were installed on a whim.
Every well-stocked guest room should have extra pillows and blankets, books and magazines, bottles of water, and cut flowers. Little touches go a long way to make guests feel welcome.
Enlarge a small space by coating every surface in white. The absence of color opens up areas that have limited natural light, making them feel airier. Add texture with building materials and textiles to keep a pale scheme from falling flat.
Typically reserved for the porch, hanging beds command attention when installed indoors. Teak platforms suspended from heavy-gauge rope play up a nautical look and create sleeping quarters your guests will fight over. You’ll need to attach the ropes to sturdy beams or studs, so be sure you have the support before you buy the materials. Engineered hardwood flooring echoes the rich graining of the bed platforms, and offers tropical-wood appeal at a fraction of the cost. It’s environmentally friendly, too!
Allow a fabric you love to play a starring role in the room. Select a graphic print with a large repeat and spread it around. Show it off on bedding, a headboard, accent pillows, and seat cushions. Paint walls, furniture, floors, and accessories the same color as the fabric’s background to help the look hang together.
Make slumber parties a cinch with a summer camp–style setup―no sleeping bag required. Place some type of storage close to the beds to hold spare towels, sheet or blankets. Creates nooks for children to have easy access to their toys. Canvas cots provide extra sleeping spaces in a pinch and are easy to fold up and store when not needed.
This beach-inspired bunk room is also home to this black cabinet, which houses nautical artifacts and aquatic-themed artwork. Old tennis rackets hang above art, reinforcing the room’s sporty theme.
