How to Design an Ocean Themed Bedroom

Start the project by painting the walls and the ceiling. The colors that are suitable for the ocean themed bedroom are deep ocean blue and sea green. To create the desired effect, paint the lower portion of the walls with dark ocean blue and apply lightest green to the ceiling. Apply the strokes from floor to the ceiling and use two coats of the paint.

Add Creatures To The Walls

Adding creatures on the wall will accentuate the look of the room. Trace pictures of fish or other sea creatures onto large pieces of construction paper. Cut out the figures and paste them onto the walls, using double sided tapes. Add details to the creatures, like eyes and scales for fish. Stenciling creatures onto the walls is also a nice idea. Wall murals play a vital part in ocean themed bedrooms. You can paste life-size murals of water-plants or underwater creatures on the walls.


The furniture of the bedroom should complement the over-all decor. This can be done by painting each piece with a single color. It is a good idea to choose the same color that you have used for the walls. This will create a camouflage effect, apart from the illusion of increased space. Let your furnishing also reflect the ocean theme – paste stickers of sea creatures to the furniture and adorn it with seashells. 

Comforters & Bedspreads
Buy pillowcases and bedspreads in shades of blue and sea green. Ensure that the throw pillows are also in blue color. Buy ocean-themed bedding set, along with curtains. Make sure that you choose the comforters according to the theme. You may choose bright primary colors or pastels for the bedding.

Add some novelty to the bedroom by accessorizing it. The accessory that adds life to an ocean-themed bedroom is aquarium. Real fish, underwater plants and coral reef will add to the appeal. Small figurines of underwater creatures, like dolphins, starfish, seaweed, coral, turtles and exotic fish, can be placed at certain locations in the bedroom. You can also place novelty fish pillows around the room.

Ideas for Bedrooms for Teens

A Pink Room for Her

  •  While your teen daughter is growing up, she is still a girl inside. Trade in the little girl pastel pinks for bold shades of dark pinks or fuchsias. Paint the room doors to match. Choose her favorite contrasting color to paint the ceiling and a third color to trim the ceiling and floor. Match the carpet color to the ceiling or opt for checkerboard tile using all the selected colors. Match rugs to the walls or use patterned rugs in the selected colors. To keep the room feminine, choose large, medium and small fuzzy pillows in all colors to place around the room. Choose pillows in round, square and odd shapes. Find beanbag chairs or small traditional furniture in the third or trim color. Add stuffed animals in the three colors to set off the solid bedding.
A Sports Room For Him
  •  Create a Hall of Fame theme for a teen boy's room. Select his favorite sport as a starting place. Use outdoor green carpeting to imitate turf or grass for most sports. If you choose hockey or other ice and snow sports, use white glossy tile; and skating sports require bare concrete. Turn one wall into a written list of game or event statistics. Stencil the team names and dates of championships going as far back as possible. For example, if the teen is a football fan, list all the Super Bowl dates, the teams involved and the winner. Decorate another wall with jerseys from various teams. Begin with the teen's favorite players and add past and current player's jerseys to fill the wall. Fill a third wall with posters and pictures of players, live action shots and special moments in the sport's history. Complete the room with equipment pieces. For example, use balls, bats, gloves, batting helmets, batting gloves and actual triangular bases for a baseball fan.

Fun Ideas For Your Kids’ Room Décor

Go For A Fun Theme
Children have an uncanny tendency to explore the unknown and they are very likely to do fun experiments in the room. Choosing broader themes for kids would help ignite their imagination. A theme resembling an enchanted forest or something suggesting adventures in sea will be really fun and the kids are surely going to love it. Other interesting themes for a child's room could be outer space, beach party, life on the farm, a secret garden, camping, travel and transportation, the prehistoric era, a mad scientist's laboratory, the future, and castles.

Wall Decoration
Decorating the walls of your child's room will also need some adventure. It is important to ensure that the color of the walls compliments the room theme. Wall decals can be used to create lively designs. The walls can be painted in poppy orange or dark blue. Pink or peach color can be used in a girl's room, especially if she is not too young. To add texture to the walls, use simple faux finishes, such as sponge-painting, antique washes or rag painting. A nature scene or a fantasy landscape can also be painted on an entire wall.

Fun accessories can also be used to decorate your child's room. Pom poms, fringe or sequin trim on pillows, blankets, curtains or shelves can be made use of, in decorations. Flea markets or thrift shops will help you get some cool accessories that children will love. Old frames and spray paints can be easily gathered from such stores and used for art projects by your child and other experimental uses as well.

Fluffy throw rugs in faux fur or in the shapes of animals or aliens can be placed on the floor, to make it look lively. A treasure chest can be made out of a toy box by painting it in gold color and pasting some artificial plastic gems on it. Vintage swatches can be tried as appliqué on cushions or as shelf covers. Whatever accessories you choose, make sure that they go with the overall décor of the room and gel well with the taste of your child as well.

Other Tips

    * You can make use of over sized balloons and posters to decorate the kid's room in a funky way. Balloons convey a sense of joy and fun in the room.
    * A new light or lampshade to match the theme of the room is also a good option. In fact, you can encourage your child to read books under the lampshade and inculcate a good habit.
