Coastal bedroom ideas for your home

Coastal bedroom designs follow a laid-back and bright waterfront theme. So, even if you live away from the ocean, you can still incorporate the vibe into your living space. Read more to find out how. 

It doesn’t take much time and effort to convert your bedroom into a tranquil place and an impressive display of nature all at the same time. Put together the right kind of textures, colours, decor, upholstery and bedding to mimic the theme and you’re good to go. A coastal bedroom idea will perfectly fit the bill for you especially if you like neutral and open-spaced bedrooms with a not-so-overpowering attitude. 

These are some of the elements you can use for your coastal bedroom design:  

  • Area rug: Bright carpet, small/medium carpet, circular/rectangular carpet 
  • Colour palette: White, corals, smoky/soft blue, green, light/medium grey, yellow, bleached-wood tones
  • Lighting: Table lamps, capiz-shell chandeliers
  • Furniture: Multifunctional cabinets and drawers, funky chairs 
  • Decor: Antique pieces, photo frame feature wall, dimensional artwork 
  • Patterns: Horizontal lines, stripes, printed/textured wallpaper 
  • Textures: Linen, silk, hemp, grass cloth, wool, cotton, seagrass, jute, bamboo, rattan  
  • Layout: Minimalist, plenty of floor space, open plan format
  • Bedding and upholstery: Fluffy pillows and bright throws  

Now let’s dive into the best coastal bedroom design ideas that will help you achieve your in-home exotic retreat.
