Playful or serious, traditional or avant-garde, the interior of your home provides a perfect opportunity to create your personal style. Express your love to the ocean by using colors, designs, and furnishings that reflect your interests and hobbies. With a little thought and planning, walls, floors, furniture, and decorations all come together as a personal expression of who you are and what you like. You don’t have to be a professional interior decorator to bring the beach to your home and create a look and feel that suits your style.
Bestlaminate is here to show you 5 ways to bring the beach to your home. If you enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach, here are a few ways to bring that valued feeling of peace and tranquility.
There are several lines of coastal laminate flooring decors that offer styles in stunning beach theme colors and designs. Check out white laminate flooring, as well as light and bright colors. Light colored designs will bring that fresh feel of the beach right into your interior. When selecting the color of your flooring, ask yourself if you will be using your existing furniture or if you will be using something new. The color of your floor should complement the color of your furniture. Ocean tones, such as blues and greens, have a calming effect on a room. Use brighter accent colors of blue, red, and yellow to add more energy.
Choose furniture that has the light, care free feeling of the beach. Heavy, dark furniture will not be a great match when it comes to a beach themed room. If you have heavy, dark furniture, you may want to invest in lighter colored throw pillows.
3. Window Treatments
Take a look at your window treatments. In a beach theme, light and airy window accents are key. Consider interior shutters, which give a rustic beach feel. They offer a classic look that never goes out of style, and can be found in a wide variety of wood species and tones. Shutters combined with the look and feel of nature, will aid in the flow of the beach atmosphere in your home.
4. Accent Colors
Accents in coastal colors, such as blues, whites, and beige tones can help bring out the beach theme in your home. Think the 3 S’s – sun, surf, and sand! Incorporating these theme accent colors in your home will automatically make your guests think of the beach!
5. Fresh Paint
A fresh coat of paint, accompanied by the look and feel of the ocean, will make your home the talk of the town. And don’t forget about small details like: themed coastal placemates with lobster napkins rings, cute kitchen towels, throw rugs, blankets as well as nautical lamps to complete the look and once you are done with decorating your beach themed home will look stunning. By bringing the beach right into your home, your family will have an enjoyable experience while relaxing at home.
Now you have everything your need to get your home looking like a beach paradise! Once you get everything completed, you can kick back and relax! Until then, get going with your decorating!
