Be reminded of the tranquil seas and luxurious vacations by the sea every time you walk into your bedroom. All without spending your life savings on personal interior decorator. Keep reading to get all of our tips on how you can turn your bedroom into the beach style room of your dreams on a budget.
Where To Start Designing A Beach Bedroom
It is exciting to decorate and make some updates. But, before you start buying new bedding, picking out paint colors or wall paper we suggest figuring out a cohesive design or goal first. Below are several tips to ensure your room will turn out exactly as you envision it.
Make An Inspiration Board:
First things first, start collecting a few inspiration pictures for the beach bedroom of your dreams. The truth is that all beaches can vary drastically in color palette, textures and overall vibe. So to ensure you get what you have in mind start by gathering inspiration.
Maybe you like the simplistic laid back vibe or California? Or the pink sand beaches of the Bahamas are more of what you had in mind? Did you take a trip to Hawaii and marvel over the black sand beaches?
Regardless, collect photos of what inspires you most. This will be a great starting point for choosing your color palette. As well as different textures, materials, even patterns that have a cohesive look that perfectly captures you’re beach dream.
You’d be amazed at how beaches vary, so make sure you find images and inspiration that capture what you most want. Because in the end it is much easier to swap out pictures on a board that repaint walls.
Choosing your color palette has never been easier, the beach is your inspiration. Neutral tones can mimic the soft beige tones of sand. While the tranquil teal blue of the ocean and bright blue skies and white foam all can make an appearance as well.
Of course, we suggest that you reference your inspiration board first. This should show you exactly what your intended color palette should be. It doesn’t need to be literal in taking the exact colors for your wall paint and the colors of your bedding and wall decor. However, it can be a great starting place to see what colors really speak to you.
Bring In Natural Textures:
House plants, framed sea shells, palm baskets, ropes, capiz shell decor or chandeliers. Find whatever speaks to your individual vibe and design style. This helps to bring in the feeling of the outdoors inside. When nature is your inspiration, it only makes sense to have a bit of the outdoors in. This will also add layers of interest and make your room feel more luxurious than just having pictures on the walls or shell patterns on your sheets.
One thing we love for a beach inspired bedroom is a good set of linen sheets. They have a beautiful texture to them that adds to the laid back feel of a beach vacation. They are breathable for the summer but also wonderful for layering in the winter, so you can use them all year round.

Beach Bedroom Wall Decor:
If you have been on vacation to a beach that you love, use those vacation photos! Get them printed out and put them in a frame. This is some of the most authentic and least expensive decoration you could ask for. Still planning your dream vacation? No problem, book mark this for later and we have some other ideas for you. Turn your walls into your mood board for your vacation.
Find a piece of wall art or a photo you can have printed out that inspires you to put your pennies in your vacation fund jar. Their are beautiful free print outs and photos all over the place. Take that stack of travel magazines, cut out the photos you love most and frame them. Or pin them on a cork board. They are beautiful and very cheap.
If you are a travel junky, a fun map of the world or your favorite locations can be a fun addition to your bedroom wall decor. Leave them framed or you can mark off where you have been and where you hope to go.
Lights & Lamps:
If you’re wanting to make your beach bedroom look custom and oh so chic, we suggest changing out your light fixtures. Depending on how handy you are, you can even save a chunk of change by changing out the fixture yourself.
Be sure to do your research if you plan on going this route. Not feeling very handy, or simply wanting to save on time and effort? Get a lamp for the bedside table. A beautiful lamp can add a lot to a rooms overall appeal. Check our beach bedroom design below for our picks for a beach bedroom and where to find them.
