Do you finally have a bedroom that can be used when out-of-town guests visit you? Perhaps you are now an empty nester couple and your grown children live close by in homes of their own. Or it might be that you still have children living at home, but you have decided that you want to redecorate one of the bedrooms in a way that will make it especially guest-friendly. If you have selected a beach theme for the new decor, that more than likely means that you have a special love for things like seashells, sailboats, and lighthouses. From choosing the wall treatment to making arrangements for carpet installation, here are some ideas that might help you to design a beach-themed guest room that is both attractive and usable.
The Wall Treatment: Have you decided whether you want to use paint for the walls or whether you want to use wallpaper? If you want to paint the walls, consider selecting a paint color that reflects things you might find at the beach. For example, consider off-white that represents seashells or choose turquoise which will remind people who use the room of the sea. Maybe you have thought of wallpapering the guest room. If so, consider selecting wallpaper that has things like pelicans, fish, and seashells as part of the design. Another idea is to combine paint with wallpaper. For example, you could choose off-white for the paint color and then enhance the room with a beach-theme border, maybe one that has lighthouses in the design.
The Flooring: Do you have a preference for carpet in your guest room? If so, think of selecting light tan, a color that will go with everything else you use to enhance the room. Another idea is to choose a bold color, say a deep orange, which one often sees in a gorgeous beach sunset. Carpets come in so many different colors and textures that you might have trouble selecting the best one for your guest room. The representative at the carpet installation service will have the training and the experience to help you choose a carpet that is not only beautiful but durable, too. The great part about selecting carpet for the flooring is that it is more than likely very affordable.
To add to the beach theme you have selected for your guest room, think of buying things like shell-shaped hand soaps and coconut-scented body lotion for your guests to use while they are staying in your guest room.
