Beach Wallpaper – Stunning Ocean Wallpaper Ideas To Create That Coastal Feeling

5 August 2021

Recreate that ocean feel with a stunning beach wallpaper! We love the sea – the noise of the waves, watching the world disappearing over the horizon, the feel of soft sand under our feet and the pebbles smoothed over by the endless flow of water….

Many people also relish that ocean vibe, but few are fortunate enough to live anywhere near the beach to have that experience each day. If you are in this situation, you can still bring the ocean to you. Interior décor allows many inspirational designs to make a splash in your home. Ocean wallpaper – or beach wallpaper if you prefer – can do just this. Let’s explore how to style a beach wallpaper at home and designs that will bring those ocean-going sensations indoors.

 

A beach wallpaper is an atmospheric choice


Some rooms are naturally welcoming, with well-chosen décor and furnishings creating a relaxing space. You can achieve this in your own home, while introducing the ocean wallpaper that helps replicate the outdoor scenery you love. You may be surprised to see how well ocean or beach wallpaper works in an assortment of rooms, too. Imagine laying back in the bath, surrounded by walls offering a marvelous view of sea wallpaper. Hang a beach wall mural and you could almost feel as if you are laying there, reading a good book and enjoying a long cool drink.

In sharp contrast, you could also put sea wallpaper to spectacular use in the kitchen. Choosing something abstract could work well here, especially as wall-hung cabinets are likely to give you far less wall space to work with. An abstract ocean wallpaper would fill in the gaps, displaying beautiful tones of blue and white – a calming choice for any room. When the heat picks up during a cooking session, you’ll feel calmed by the more relaxed design around you.

Where else might beach wallpaper come into its own? How about in a nursery? Expectant parents often ponder over how to decorate this room. An abstract ocean wallpaper is a superb choice, offering an innovative design that would go with the ever-changing furniture that is likely to grace such a room. Whether you go for strong shades and wave-like shapes or something more subtle, it’s the perfect backdrop for any nursery.

Dip into the big blue with an ocean wallpaper


As you may now have realized, we’ve yet to exhaust the possibilities of beach wallpaper designs. While tones of blue are the driver for this design idea, you can also find examples that include a few other unusual shades as well. Would you consider an ocean wallpaper paper with golden tones running through it to imitate the sunlight, for example? Something to think about.

You also need to think about the level of detail and recognizable imagery you’d like to have in your ocean wallpaper. Would you prefer colors and shades that suggest you’re up close to the waves and the ebb and flow of the water? Or would you rather choose a design that makes it seem as if you’re viewing the water from above, so you can imagine dipping your toes into the waves as they approach. With so many possibilities wrapped into various wallpaper designs, you always have an impressive range of beach wallpaper to choose from.

Abstract designs are popular, of course, but there are other options that give you the chance to introduce a more realistic tone. When you think of the ocean, do you think of seagulls or other birds swirling around in the air, hoping for a treat from a trawler out at sea? Or do you think of the sand beneath your feet? Some sea wallpaper uses such imagery and inspiration to create a repeating design or captivating mural to hang in your home.

Making waves with a beach wallpaper!


Another point to think about is whether you’d rather hang an ocean mural on one wall or redecorate an entire room in ocean wallpaper. It’s worth thinking about the amount of natural light the room receives, the size of the room, and what kinds of furniture you’re going to have in there. Sometimes, a room will have a specific feature that almost demands you go for a wall mural. In this example, a beach wall mural would certainly take over that area and stand out… almost as a work of art.In other cases, you can be more daring and hang your chosen beach wallpaper around the entire room. When looking at different papers, think about how light or dark they are. Lighter tones always work better in smaller rooms that don’t receive a lot of light. You can be bolder if you’re in a bigger room.

We should also talk about the mood you wish to create in your chosen room. Another popular space to hang ocean wallpaper is the bedroom, where you can drift away to sleep each night dreaming of the ocean beyond your walls. Some people like to be bolder with their interior décor if they’re revamping a space that few others are going to see. In the bedroom, you might choose a design with abstract imagery in many light and dark shades. Something bolder – something more reminiscent of the waves on a dark and stormy day.

Switch to a communal space such as a dining room or living room and you can lighten things up with something calmer. A graded paper looks fantastic, with darker colors swirling around the bottom of the wallpaper and moving through to far lighter ones near the top.
