Whether you need to go down the coastal route, take the nautical ship or just love the simple beach style at its traditional best, inspiration from sun, sand and surf is something that seems to charm us all. And with summer now totally melting away into the colors of fall and winter waiting to greet us all, it is only obvious that we long to recreate the magic of breezy summer at its lazy best! The home theater or the media room is a place where you can effortlessly try out beach style without really disturbing the rest of your house and its current style and color palette. Smart, fun plus happy beach-mode media rooms place a smile at your face nearly immediately!
A small media room can create a big variance to your lifestyle. One of the biggest advantages is that it takes the TV away from the living room and ensures that you don't waste countless hours just staring at it. It also removes this irritating contemporary habit of living half of our lives with the television offering background noise! A devoted media room also forces your family to spend more time together, and you can combine it with a small gaming area, a pool table or just an activity zone to create a more energetic and interactive space. From wasted space on the mezzanine level to the small, unused room in the attic, pretty much any little nook of space can be transformed into a small and cozy media room.
There is no reason why your beach-style house theater can't be both relaxing and visually spectacular at the same time. Once considered an absolute magnificence, rapid strides in today’s technology have made home theaters a lot more affordable and easy to install. Wireless connectivity has taken this a step further, and today’s home theaters can provide the absolute‘cinema experience’ undraining your bank account. The beach-style home theater certainly stands out from the crowd because of its use of a light color palette that often involves white and its many shades. Throw in décor and accessories with a unmistakable coastal style, and you have a setting that is as refreshing when the lights are turned on as it is mesmerizing when it all goes dark!
Searching Space for the Media Room
Investigating Different Hues
It is barely a secret that the combination of white and blue is the ‘go to’ duo in any beach-style setting, and it is something you simply can't go wrong with. Those looking to add a more maritime twist to the media room or home theater can use darker shades like navy blue along with white instead. The white and blue media room senses fresh and cheerful, and with motifs such as the ship wheel, starfish, conch shells and even simple stripes, ushering in that coastal charm is all too easy.

This is precisely why we have also hurled in some fabulous media rooms that multitask with ease and permit you to use the same room as a cool ‘social zone’ and an interactive hangout.

A Hint of Grandeur
Traditional White and Blue
Not actually pleased with the simple white plus blue color palette for the beach-style media room? Not to worry, as there are plenty of other colors you can try out unaltering the appeal of the theme or its innate elegance. Pops of red are great for any room and breathe life into a setting, and you can use vivid red chairs, a couch or even just throw pillows to spice up the already stylish media room. But make sure you don't go overboard with a strong color like red in beach-style spaces.
Shades of coral plus pastel hues of orange and green are also great for these marvelous media rooms. Also try out lighter colors of gray in the coastal-themed home theaters to find that balance between the panache of beach style and the darker backdrop that you feel is more apt in the room. And in case you need a clue of sunny radiance, there is always yellow and its vivacious shades, which never disappoint!
