Beach bedroom furniture is available in many different types and styles. Some of it is luxury hardwood, while other types may be made of faux wood synthetic materials. There are many different ways to decorate a bedroom that gives the feeling of being at a beach. Beach furniture for bedrooms may be modern, rustic, romantic, elegant or tropical.

Modern beach style bedroom furniture typically has simple lines and plain surfaces. Both the beds and dressers may be very box-like in design. Although most other styles of beach bedroom furniture tend to be in lighter colors, modern versions may be dark. The rest of the bedroom is then typically done in white with perhaps a stunning ocean view adding the real color and drama to the room. Another feature of modern style beds and dressers is that they tend to be large in scale to allow for a clean, uncluttered look in a room, since oftentimes not even night tables are added.

Rustic furniture for a bedroom may sometimes be dark in color, such as a designer bed and dresser set made from logs. Usually though, a light knotty pine or a white painted style signal rustic beach bedroom furniture. The look may be "shabby chic" with whitewashed looking surfaces and a few dents or scratches to give bed frames, dressers and night tables a well-worn appearance. Unlike modern beach bedroom furniture styles, a rustic room may have many different pieces such as a rocking chair in a corner and/or a wooden or wicker plant stand or light-colored bookshelf unit.

A white or wrought iron canopy bed frame draped in gauzy material can be the focal point in a romantic beach bedroom. There may be touches of soft, dreamy pastels such as in satin pillows on the bed or in an accent chair. Dressers and tables in beach bedroom furniture sets are often light looking in their design and may be painted white or a pastel accent color. Elegant beach styles of bedroom furniture on the other hand could even be in darker colors of hardwoods, yet they may have curved or carved edges rather than being more formal and squared-off. They may include sophisticated chaise lounges and upholstered benches as well as dressers with large mirrors.

Wicker, rattan, glass and other natural materials are often featured extensively in tropical beach bedroom furniture. Sofas made for bedroom sitting areas, or smaller living rooms, are typically all in woven rattan or wicker. There are beds also designed in this fashion with the headboard and footboard both in woven natural materials. Dressers may have wicker or rattan accents or also be made mostly in the woven materials, along with a wood frame and drawers.
