Tropical kids’ bedrooms are pretty easy to craft when compared to other contemporary themes that demand more sophistication and less color. It is a theme that allows your kids to express their personalities and turns their private sanctuaries into fun, energetic and imaginative settings. With summer knocking on the door, this is an exquisite style that seems like a perfect fit.

Stylish Shared Spaces

Turn to the Walls

Colorful wallpaper, custom wall murals and fun wall decals; make sure you pull you every trick in the book to turn that mundane bedroom into a chic, tropical-style hub. In fact, by adding wall murals and decals you can quickly transform the ambiance of the kids’ room and add color to the setting while working with a limited budget. Swinging palm trees or a lovely mural of life on the beach coupled with the right decor and accessories can easily get the job done. Bedside tables in heavy wood or a whimsical canopy bed enhance this appeal and complete a truly remarkable tropical bedroom.

Inspired by the Waves

Styles such as coastal, nautical and tropical are pretty close to one another, and each one of them easily borrows from the other. Blue is a great color for all three of those themes, and wall murals and decals inspired by ‘island life’ can further take the bedroom down the coastal route. Balance this by using decor that shouts out tropical and introduces textures that are as nature-centric as possible. If you want a bedroom that combines both the tropical and coastal styles, then throw in a few ship wheels and starfish along with a bamboo bed frame and pops of corals and greens to get the best of both worlds!

Color It Right!

While green and blue are traditionally the two colors that work best in tropical bedrooms, vibrant shades of orange and pink also blend in beautifully with this rich decorating style. Since we are talking about kids’ bedrooms, make sure you turn up the color spectrum to create a truly spectacular hangout for your little one. A backdrop in white, sandy beige or mellow yellow seems to work every single time, and irrespective of the color palette, make sure that there is plenty of natural light to really usher in that delightful tropical vibe.
