Create a whimsical shark-themed bedroom using novelty items and ocean-hued textiles. If you or your child is a shark lover, transform a bedroom into a vibrant under-the-sea-inspired personal space.

  1. 1

    Cover a bedroom wall with an sea-inspired mural. Paint a mural yourself, or hire a professional artist to enhance the wall. Hanging wallpaper featuring ocean life is another option. Create a mural depicting sharks in their natural habitat, including blue water, colourful fish, coral and a sunken treasure chest.

  2. 2

    Enhance the bedroom with a shark-shaped glass fish bowl. Fill the bowl with fish, plants and vibrant rocks. The shark-themed bowl will add a touch of whimsy to a night stand or work desk, as well as bring a bit of ocean life indoors.

  3. 3

    Create a cohesive bedroom look with shark-inspired decor details. Update boring dressers with porcelain shark-shaped drawer pulls and install ceiling fan chain pulls. Choose a ceiling fan featuring blades shaped like shark fins. Replace traditional light covers with versions featuring shark and ocean life designs.

  4. 4

    Install blue-grey carpeting, reminiscent of the colour of sharks. If the room features hardwood or tile flooring, add warmth and interest with shark-shaped rugs. Place several small rugs throughout the space, or one large rug in the centre of the room.

  5. 5

    Decorate the bed with shark-inspired touches. Turn the sleeping space into the room's focal point by enhancing it with a comforter or quilt featuring shark patterns. Coordinate with crisp white sheets displaying tiny grey shark designs. Complete the look with a large, plush, grey shark-shaped pillow.
