You’d probably be hard-pressed to name a style that can warm your heart like tropical. It’s big and bold in a tasteful way that makes you feel as if you’re on vacation. You can get away with a lot with this look. If you like bright colors and patterns, you’ll feel right at home here. The goal is to create that island getaway that oozes comfort.
The challenge with this style rests with keeping everything in check. You can indulge in lots of color and accent pieces as long as you don’t overdo it. It’s a slippery slope between a tropical paradise and a gaudy attempt at creating one. The goal is to create an open, airy space that adds to its relaxed atmosphere. The exotic elements add to the fun.
Bringing the Tropical Style Home
The tropical dining room design ideas include a full spectrum of defining elements that reflect the diversity of the tropics and its cultures. You have wide latitude for homing in on your particular take. The underlying theme is warmth. You’ll follow it to the vibrant rainforests of Bali or sandy beaches of the Caribbean.
A Colorful Palette
The shades you’ll see in the tropical style reflect the broad range of colors of these places. Think lime green, tangerine, and coral. You can go with solid swatches or get playful with some classic motifs like palm trees or banana leaves. It’s perfectly acceptable to go bold with the patterns. But as in all things, moderation is the key to keep your room from being garish.
Exotic Woods and Natural Textures
The tropical style celebrates the things that make it unique such as the exotic woods. Choose furniture and other pieces made of materials such as teak and bamboo. This look isn’t picky about everything matching. Feel free to mix and match as you please. Weathered woods are welcome too. Include natural textures like jute and cane.
Plants and More Plants
Nothing says the tropical style more than plants—and lots of them. They bring nature indoors not unlike your choice of materials. They’ll also help improve indoor air quality. Choose lush varieties such as palms and ficus.
A ceiling fan light is almost a prerequisite for the tropical style. You’ll love the feel of cool, ocean breezes making your dining room comfortable. The only other thing you’ll need is a tall glass of iced tea.
