Coastal Style Kitchen Makeover

4 Coastal Kitchen Designs You’ll Love

Looking for a kitchen remodel for your coastal home whose design hints at lazy lapping waves, boat themes and light hues? Well then, coastal kitchen design may be a great option for you.

Here are a few points you should know about coastal kitchen designs: 

An important component of a coastal kitchen is its color. Hues are meant to be gentle and calming, with colors like sea foam green, light beige and soft pinks and blues. Whites and creams are primarily the base colors, often contributing to the overall theme of the kitchen.

Wall design can vary depending on your taste. Cottage-style boards can be used or backsplashes that might feature tiled murals with beach themes, tiles in the shape of seashells or sea life; they can even be made entirely from real seashells. Use your imagination!

Decor in a coastal kitchen is often seaside themed. Curtains, placemats and other linens may feature seashell or sea life designs, and are often in soft, soothing colors in shades of pink, blue and green. Driftwood and actual seashells can be used for centerpieces or arrayed decoratively on windowsills or storage shelving. Artwork may also reflect a seaside or maritime theme.

Furniture in seaside kitchen designs tends to be simple and sturdy; it’s often constructed from traditional hardwood. Many homeowners designing coastal kitchens decide to leave furniture unfinished or with a somewhat natural stain or finish, as this style works well with a light and bright kitchen design.

Coastal-Toned Kitchen

You will notice that this kitchen has neutral and pale blue tones. The cabinetry, marble countertops, and backsplash create an off-white backdrop. Nautical-style lighting above the island helps carry the subtle coastal look into this space.

Light Hues

The light, soft hues of color and light enhances this kitchen’s coastal feel. Don’t be afraid to use strong color in big, unexpected ways such as on your kitchen island. The same color of this island was also repeated on the window shades so it matches. Plenty of sunlight, additional white cabinetry, and warm wood floors balance the bright aqua.

Subtle Nautical Kitchen

Nothing says nautical like blue and white!T his kitchen is visually appealing because it offers a mix of materials evocative of boats. The antique chestnut shelves are reminiscent of a ship’s deck, and the stainless steel appliances and large hanging light fixtures over the island call to mind metal boat fittings. A splash of deep royal blue tile is contrasted against the clean white.

Breakfast Nook

 If you have a little nook in your house, it’s a great idea to turn it into a breakfast nook area. A window-filled alcove functions like a dining room with a casual table, two slipcovered end chairs, and a pillow-topped banquette. The built-in bench and wall of windows make this small space seem much larger. Two vintage light fixtures hung with nautical rope enhance the space in your coastal home.
