If surf, sand and sunny days sound like music to your ears, then the coastal-inspired kitchen might be the perfect design style for your cooking space. Coastal kitchen designs rely on ocean-blue accessories, crisp white cabinets, and beach-themed patterns and artwork with a nautical flavor.
While light wood cabinets are certainly an option in the coastal kitchen design, white cabinetry tends to be more common for this breezy kitchen style. Choose glass-front doors to reflect natural light, and accent the cabinets with a mixed blue mosaic backsplash.
A kitchen island or peninsula made from weathered reclaimed wood is also a fitting piece for a coastal kitchen, as is a glass bubble chandelier that mimics the water that is often not far from view in a classic beachfront home. Incorporate other natural elements like wicker baskets, bamboo pub-style seating and plenty of white accents, like a pure white marble countertop.
Accessories in a coastal kitchen are often made from understated blue, pale yellow, white and green, including blue glassware, fresh green plants, and pale yellow dish towels or place settings.
With a bit of mortar and design finesse, a travertine backsplash can transform your kitchen area.
