You're in luck if you're looking for a kitchen design that exudes relaxation and coastal vibes! Coastal-inspired kitchens are all the rage this season and for a good reason. They're bright, airy, and perfect for anyone who loves the ocean.
So, are you ready to embrace the trend? Here are some tips to get you started.
1. Use Bright, Airy Colors
One of the defining characteristics of coastal kitchens is the use of bright, cheerful colors. Think sunny yellows, sky blues, and crisp white. These colors will help to create a light and airy feel in your kitchen. We suggest something in the pastel family and adding pops of color to your cabinets, countertops, and décor.
2. Make It Natural
Natural materials are key in achieving that perfect look. Try using stone or marble countertops, tile backsplashes, and wooden floors for a natural and rustic feel of hugging the shoreline.
3. Add Some Greenery
Don’t forget about incorporating some greenery into the space. House plants are a great way to add life to any room and are especially well-suited for a coastal kitchen. Palm trees, ferns, and other tropical plants will give your space a fresh, breezy feel.
If you’re limited on space, you can do with some shoreside succulents like a potted Chalk Lettuce by the windows!
4. Get That Beachy Feel
There’s no better way to embrace the kitchen style than by adding some beachy touches. Try hanging seashells, starfish, or other beach-themed décor.
5. Keep It Clutter-Free
Coastal kitchens tend to have an open and airy feel, perfect for anyone who loves to entertain. Make sure to add plenty of counter space and storage to help keep your kitchen clutter-free.
6. Incorporate Nautical Themes
Nautical elements are a great way to add a touch of coastal style to your kitchen. Start by incorporating maritime-themed accents like rope, anchors, or fishnet into your décor.
7. Hang Some Lanterns
Lanterns are the perfect way to add a little bit of light—and style—to your kitchen. They’ll give the space a warm, inviting feeling that’s perfect for entertaining guests. Lanterns are also a budget-friendly, opulent way to add some extra illumination if your kitchen doesn’t have a lot of natural light.
8. Install A Glass Backsplash
A glass backsplash creates a focal point in your kitchen. It's also an easy way to add some extra light to the space. Glass backsplashes come in a variety of colors & styles, so you're sure to find one that fits your kitchen's design.
For some people, the thought of luxury kitchen designs is intimidating. However, if your contractor is experienced, achieving is quite simple. And when done right, it can result in a stylish and functional kitchen.
