Lighting for Beach House Bedroom GUIDE

Beach Theme Bedroom Lighting Ideas:

When it comes to beach-inspired bedroom lighting, the possibilities are endless. That’s why we created this Beach Bedroom Lighting Guide because selecting your lighting can change from fun to overwhelming in no time flat.

We break the process down into two main areas.

  1. The materials and elements you look for to create that coastal vibe.
  2. The beach bedroom types of lighting.

For each section, we give you shopping option examples so you can see exactly what we’re talking about.

Beach Bedroom Lighting Materials and Elements

When choosing lighting for a beach themed bedroom, consider materials and elements that make you think about the sea. Here are some ideas and guidelines to consider.

Lighting Colors: Use hues that are inspired by the sand and sea like natural beige, coral, soft white, crisp white, turquoise, OR you can always stick with the traditional beach colors red, white and nautical blue.

Beachy lampshades: Beach lampshades with beach-inspired designs, such as stripes, anchors, shells, seagulls, or even just a beachy color, works well.

Table Lamps for Beach Theme Bedrooms
Table lamps are a great way to bring a soft light to your beach-inspired bedroom. Look for table lamps with natural materials like wood, bamboo, jute, rattan, and wicker work. You can also pick light shades in coastal colors like soft natural hues or rich vibrant teals and corals. Or go for the tried and true red, white and blue. Glass is also gorgeous. If you’re really adventurous you can fill the glass lamp base with seashells or sand.
