Shark bedding has become increasingly easier to find online, with coordinating accessories such as window treatments, area rugs, and wall art. With so many children loving nautical, ocean and shark-themed bedrooms, there is now a wide variety of not only shark bedding, but shark wall art & stickers, lamps, plush toys, bath towels and bath mats to choose from.
When designing a kids’ theme room, it’s best to keep strong design elements such as sharks, dinosaurs or pirates in a balanced proportion to create a cohesive design. I noticed when viewing shark bedding available through different brands, that they do have shark quilts, comforters, duvet covers, sheets and décor in the same color range. This makes it much easier to pull the whole look together.
Crate & Barrel’s shark bedroom décor is in soft hues of grays and blues, while pottery barn has deeper hues in the same colors as well as a selection of brighter blues suitable for younger boys.
If you decide to go with shark bedding & throw pillows on the bed, as well as shark wall décor, it works best to keep the furniture light neutral with weather washed woods in a soft white, gray or tan that matches the bedding.
Whether your child loves giant great whites or hammerheads, a shark bedroom is perfect for kids that love the ocean. You can easily integrate other nautical elements to complete the look such as whales, anchors, rope, netting, distressed wood and wall decals. Minted has a great selection of reasonably priced shark wall art.
A net draped on the ceiling secured by small white hooks on the ceiling, with plastic or plush sharks placed inside – adds instant drama and dimension.
Or try adding a light that casts a glow onto shark decals like the Uncle Milton Wild Walls Shark Encounter Wall Decal Light & Sound Décor.
I hope you have found these tips helpful. Have fun creating your kid’s shark bedroom!
