Have you recently enclosed your outdoor patio with the purpose of using it all year rather than just during the warmer months? Perhaps you are looking forward to entertaining friends and family members during the upcoming holidays and you have realized that you need more space. If you have chosen a beach theme for the enclosed patio design, you are probably in for some very fun shopping and planning. From contacting a painting contractor to buying beach-themed decorating items, here are some ideas that might help you to plan an attractive room.
Hire A Painting Contractor - After the construction work is complete, consider starting your indoor patio project by contacting a painting contractor. Explain to him or to her that you are wanting a beach theme for your new room. He or she will have the training and the experience to help you pick out the right color of paint. For example, the recommendation might be made that you select colors that are found at a beach location, colors like sea blue, pale green, or very light tan. If you want something truly unique, the painting contractor might recommend faux painting that will give the enclosed patio walls the appearance of old wood or weathered brick. Whether you have faux painting or regular painting, think of adding a beach-themed wallpaper border, too. Talk to a painting contractor like Old World Painting for help picking the best solution for your enclosed patio.
Buy Beach-themed Decoratives - After the walls are painted, think of other things that will add to your beach theme. For example, consider buying rattan or wicker furniture that is upholstered in fabric and that has things like sea shells, pelicans, light houses, and sailboats as part of the design. Another idea is to select fabrics of colors that will complement the wall paint you have selected and then to add beach-themed throw pillows to the sofa and chairs. Is there room in your enclosed patio for a bench swing or for a hammock? Either would add interest to the room, don't you think? Choose beach-themed art, too. For example, select water colors of different kinds of colorful fish. Look for metal art in the form of different kinds of boats and of light houses. Add a bit of humor to the room by stenciling words like, I'd rather be at the beach or Isn't life a beach? Another idea is to buy different sandals and flip flops and turn them into wall art by adding shells around them strategically.
