Your bedroom is the place you go to escape the stresses of everyday life and get a good night's sleep. For children, the bedroom can be a place to play as well as sleep, and for teenagers it can be a place to escape the family and listen to music. When redecorating your bedroom, it is important to come up with ideas that not only reflect your personality and your personal needs, but that also show your individual taste and preferences. A Hawaiian-style theme bedroom can be fun for kids of all ages--from newborn to elderly adult.

Flower Prints

Purchase photographs or paintings of Hawaiian-style flowers, such as Hibiscus or orchids. Use simple frames to hang the pictures so as not to detract attention from the beauty of the pictures themselves. Alternatively, buy or make a large tropical flower stencil and use it to paint flowers directly onto the walls using bright paint colours such as red and fuchsia.

Tropical Fixtures and Lamps

Search your local home-improvement stores for a palm leaf ceiling fan, which can replace the light fixture in your bedroom while helping to circulate the air. The palm leaves tie in with the Hawaiian theme, giving the room an island feel. Look for table lamps made of natural materials such as raffia. To accentuate the Hawaiian motif, look for island themed lamps with hula girl or pineapple bases.

Murals

If you are artistic, paint a Hawaiian-theme mural on the bedroom wall. Create a relaxing beach scene complete with sand, sea and palm trees. For extra colour, paint a tropical bird or a tropical flower arrangement. Other ideas for murals include a sunset scene, a volcano scene or just a cluster of large, bright flowers.

Beach Colors

Give your bedroom a tropical beach feel by painting the walls sky-blue and installing a light pine wood floor. The floor colour together with the bright blue will remind you of the sea and the sand. Place brightly-coloured flower arrangements on your end tables for an added splash of colour. If the floor feels too bare, search for a tropical-themed area rug in a natural material.
