There are lots of paint options to consider when you're painting the interior and exterior of a beach house. Whether you opt for traditional beach house colours or a more contemporary theme, the end result can be just as effective.
Create a jaunty, traditional nautical look inside your beach house by using blue and white paint. Paint the walls with pure white paint and highlight the woodwork and skirting boards in a royal marine shade of blue. To finish off the colour scheme, use home accessories such as cushions, curtains and throws in matching blue and white striped designs.
Choose paint in a range of pastel colours and adorn the interior and exterior walls of your beach house with an array of pastel shades. In beach homes that have wood panelling, this works particularly well, as you can paint each panel a different colour. Alternatively, use one pastel colour per wall or per room. Complement the look with matching flooring, fabrics and furniture.
Bold and Bright
Use bold and bright colours, such as red, yellow, orange, green or cerise to create a stunning effect in your beach house. Pick a couple of favourite colours, or use a rainbow palette. Be creative and experiment with colours you may normally shy away from, as a beach house can be the ideal place to use bright colours. Paint the exterior of the beach house in colourful shades too, plus the front door, to create a cheery and welcoming look.
Bring the colours of the beach into your home, through the use of warm sandy shades. Choose one sandy colour for the walls and a darker shade to add definition to the woodwork and skirting boards. Teamed with natural wood flooring and textured wall tiles, these colours will create the ambience of the beach within the comfort of your own four walls.
Experiment with using contemporary paint colours, by choosing a palette of shiny metallic silver, matt silver and grey paints. Use matt silver or grey paint on the walls, adding accents with the shiny metallic silver. These colours will help create lots of light in your beach home and work very well alongside black or silver furniture and kitchen appliances.
