Decorating a stylish beach apartment
Buying a beach flat is an excellent decision. Whether you intend to spend the summer there or rent it, you should create a stylish and modern decoration that will suit most tenants.
From Casasol, we give you some recommendations so you can decorate your beach flat in Nerja with style and care:
Use a decoration that invites relaxation and comfort. The first thing that a beach flat should mean is an invitation to relax in each room. It must be a flat that requires easy cleaning and maintenance. For this purpose, try to use easy to clean and keep textiles. Natural materials such as cotton, linen or wood are the kings of decoration because they are resistant, durable and supply comfort. Use natural textures whenever possible.

Use practical furniture that is not too delicate in the living room and the different rooms. You can use versatile furniture both for decoration and for discreet storage. One suggestion would be to add a sofa that converts into a bed in the living room or a bed with drawers underneath the mattress. In general, try to keep the beach flat stylish and simple at the same time.

In the bathrooms, use accessories or decorations with a summery touch. You can use pictures with sea-related motifs, such as illustrations of paradisiacal beaches with clear waters or scenery of the seacoast painted in watercolour. As for the decorative objects in the bathroom, we recommend that you use ornaments related to the sea and have a marine touch, such as a soap dish with shells or a towel rack with stars or seahorses.
The general tone of the flat should be light. If we want to emphasise the summer touch in the flat, it is essential to use a light colour. You can use neutral tones such as white, beige, or light grey to create corners that simulate being by the sea. For example, cover the chairs and tables in the living room with light-coloured fabrics, and choose curtains with a material that brings freshness and luminosity. In this way, you can get natural light into the rooms of the flat.

The combination of light colours such as white or pale blue gives the rooms a more spacious feel. You can add the other colours’ touches and create a cosy combination with these colours.
The balcony or terrace should also convey a summery feel. In summer, you can spend a lot of time outdoors, especially if you decorate your flat in a way that invites you to relax and rest. Vegetable fibres often supply a warm, summery feel at the same time. For example, wicker chairs are perfect for indoors and outdoors, and esparto grass mats add a natural and fresh touch. You can hang lanterns, plants, or nets on the balcony walls if they align with the chosen decoration style. Wooden pieces also add that rustic, seafaring side.

Include ceiling fan and air conditioning. Both options are valid for air-conditioning the beach flat. Some tenants prefer the fan to air conditioning or vice versa. For this reason, the fan can be a decorative element for some rooms, and the air conditioner is necessary, especially in summer.
When decorating, think that the beach flat should be a special place for relaxation and enjoyment.
