A good theme for your apartment is very important to have a cohesive and aesthetic living space. A great theme for all those of you who love going to tropical locations for vacations is a coastal-themed living space. If you want to know how to give your apartment a coastal makeover, just read on!
Wainscoting or headboard is vertical slabs of wood that serve the purpose of insulating spaces. They can make the bedroom look very coastal. Beach house beds are mostly made with beadboard slats. So, if you want to add that coastal touch, buy these panels for your bedroom and your bed. Beadboard panels are also great for enhancing the height of a room. You can find these panels very easily. If you don’t want to use white panels, feel free to give them a quick paint job!
Another fairly simple way to make your living space look and feel more tropical is by choosing the right color palette for your living space. What are the colors that come to your mind when you think of a tropical paradise? Blue? White? Green? Pastel yellow? These colors are great for adding that tropical touch to your apartment. The best thing is that you can choose your preferred shade for each color. For instance, if you love blue, you can go for turquoise, seafoam, navy blue for a nautical feel, or light blue if you love pastels. If you like to do things differently and want your living space to look unique, you can consider indigo. If you want to get a little more creative and want multiple colors in your apartment, then you can choose two colors for each room and do two-toned walls!
One of the easiest ways to make your living space look like coastal vibes is by adding furniture items made from sisal, rattan, or seagrass. These materials have woven rope-like appearance so it instantly makes any space feel tropical! These are some ways in which you can add such furniture items:
● Wicker and bamboo stools are an easy and affordable purchase for your living room.
● For the bed, the footboard and headboard can have seagrass inserts.
● For your dining room, go for wicker chairs. These types of chairs are highly durable, lightweight, and pocket-friendly.
● Wicker and bamboo hanging chairs in your bedroom can be a fun addition!
● Add a sisal rug to your bedroom and living room.
This is a fun do-it-yourself project for your apartment. It’s inexpensive and worth the effort. A lot of beach houses have whitewashed accents on furniture items. Whitewashing is easy and fun to do. You don’t have to paint your furniture items. All you have to do is add a translucent white stain to your furniture. For instance, in the living room, you can whitewash your TV unit design, dining table, side tables, your desk, and other wooden items.
Adding small coastal-themed decor items to your apartment is a wonderful idea. Coastal-themed throw pillows on your couch and bedroom are a great addition. Wall-hangings, a coral replica, wind chimes made from seashells, a collage of shells on the wall, beach-themed coasters, and lamps are some great ways to add strong tropical vibes to your apartment!
Incorporate these simple ideas to make your living space feel like a coastal paradise! If you try out any of these ideas, you’ll feel like you’re permanently living in a beach house!
