5 TIPS FOR DESIGNING YOUR DREAM COASTAL KITCHEN
Designing a coastal style kitchen is simple — and a style that works whether you're living on the water or not. Kick off your shoes and pour yourself a cold drink and read along to create the perfect coastal style kitchen in your home.
Below are 5 tips to keep in mind while designing your Coastal Kitchen.
1. CHOOSE COASTAL COLORS
Dreams of the sea often invoke sentimental shades of colors inspired by the sand, foam green sea and various tones of the water. When designing a coastal kitchen, any shade of blue can reflect the style. Every aspect of the kitchen, the splash-back wall, tiles, appliances, accessories and most importantly, the cabinets should remind you of the warm summer days with delicate shades of coral yellow and pink perfectly suited for twilight. Pair these colors with a splash of white and you will have created a nautical, beach themed, coastal style kitchen
2. BEACHY SPLASH-BACK TILES
A few minor wall changes can make your kitchen the star of your home. A good idea is to pair the white cabinets with a decorative tile splash-back which adds character and allows you to consider different colors. The tile splash-backs can range between shades of grey to green and blue reminding us of the treasures of the ocean
3. PAY EMPHASIS ON WOOD
A coastal style kitchen would not be complete without some woody finishes. Choosing white or any neutral shade not only brings inspiration of the drift wood that has tumbled ashore but makes the kitchen feel airier, hence giving a beach them inspiration to the kitchen. For a more modern look, adding polished wooden flooring paired with wooden cabinets will leave you with a complete sleek coastal style kitchen.
4. GOOD LIGHTING IS IMPORTANT
A coastal kitchen might not offer much natural light during he winter months, it can yet feel like a summer day with the right light placement. A coastal kitchen should ideally have a combination of track lighting and hanging light fittings to illuminate the area around the sink and any other area requiring additional brightness.
5. MINIMALIST BASE DESIGN
As coastal kitchens can be minimalist in design, it is important to choose thematic decorations that stand out. Thematic decorations for a coastal style kitchen can range from seashells to yachts or anything else that reminds you of the ocean life. It is important to be tasteful and be consistent with the accessories and color scheme of the kitchen.
