Adding That Finishing Touch to Your Beach Themed Room

Sweet Aloha Switchplate
It’s almost finished, the beach themed room that will take all who enter to a place of sand and surf, palm trees and sun, and the sounds of birds and waves crashing down. Whether the room is leaning towards a more tropical feel, surfing USA or a nautical look, Hawaiian, surf or beach themed light switchplates will set the tone for the entire setting of the space. After all, often times when a person enters a room, one of the first things they look for is where to turn on the light.

Beach themed switchplates come in as many varieties as there are grains of sand. If sea shells and sand dollars are the focus, look to find beach themed switchplates with sea shells in calming neutral colors such as shades of gray and brown. Or go for a classic white background with natural color sea shells. Color schemes of blues and greens work great for a beach look as well.

If the room is more of a big kahuna, look for surf themed light switchplates. Ride the wave with a surf themed light switchplate covered in multi designed surf boards with a weathered look. Or go for surf themed light switchplates featuring colorful hibiscus flowers reminiscent of a favorite pair of swim trunks.

Maybe the room is meant to be an escape to a beautiful Hawaiian island oasis with palms, tropical drinks with little umbrellas, and multi colored sunsets. There are an ocean sized variety of Hawaiian themed switchplates that illustrate island scenes with mountains and parrots or dancing hula girls in grass skirts. There are also Hawaiian themed switchplates featuring very popular sea life. Find schools of colorful tropical island fish or dolphins jumping through the ocean blue. You may even come across a mermaid or two.

No matter what the focus is of a beach themed room, it’s the little touches that bring it all together. Using accents for décor including fabrics, wall hangings, and switchplates are going to catch a person’s eye and make them feel like they’re on a vacation from a standard boring room.

We often receive questions asking "what is a Duvet Cover" A duvet cover is like a big pillowcase for your comforter. Many people prefer duvet covers so they can put a nice fluffy comforter inside and they are also easier to wash and easier to store. They also make it easier to change your decor without having to purchase a new comforter.
