Ever wanted to achieve a breezy and beachy kitchen look but wondering how to pull it off without hiring an interior decorator? We’ve got the goods for you! Try one or try all and let the sun, sea, and sand vibe be in your home!
GO FOR AQUA APPLIANCES
Hey, who says your appliances have to be boring? Go for an aqua-hued retro-inspired toaster or refrigerator, more so if you’ve got a white kitchen. It’s a perfect match!
HOW ABOUT PAINTED FLOORS?
Got wooden flooring which has seen better days? You can revive it with a simple coat of paint and perhaps a stenciled design. Marine paint works wonders and is resistant to the daily traffic and grind which is normal to an area as busy as your kitchen.
INSTALL IRIDESCENT TILES
An iridescent backsplash mimics the sun’s glint on crystal clear waters and heavenly waves. You can also opt for a small tiled area using beachy hues of aqua, white, and beige. It’s going to be gorgeous!
TRY WHITE AND BLUE STRIPES
Whether you use the stripes on your walls or the fabric you choose for your kitchen island stools, it’s an update that is both chic and easy, a real winner!
USE TONGUE AND GROOVE PANELING (SHIPLAP)
Recreate the cabin vibe in your kitchen by bringing in this architectural detail. It’s double the breathtaking beauty if all’s going to be painted in white!
COLOURBLOCK ALL THE WAY!
Ever thought of using bicolour stools? They bring to mind nautical flags, especially if you’ll use navy and white. If you can’t find them at your furniture shop, you can also DIY them!
ADD TEXTURE TO PENDANT LIGHT
Use natural fibres to wrap your pendant lights with to bring in a casual and earthy feel in your kitchen. Pair this tip with a diffused light type of shade and you’ve got a showstopper! (see photo above)
PAINT YOUR KITCHEN ISLAND IN NAVY
A simple change such as painting the base of your kitchen island a saucy navy blue can create such a huge impact; you’ll think you’re in someone else’s kitchen!
GO FOR BISTRO STOOLS
Wanting a French Riviera feel in your kitchen? Then go for bistro stools. Go for counter height versions for a more coastal look. Tassels in white or blue won’t hurt either. It’s all about playing with textures and colours!
YOU CAN’T GO WRONG WITH YACHT-INSPIRED DETAILS
Love sailing or cruising on a yacht? Then bring the yacht inside your kitchen! Add boat handrails, plank wood flooring, and perhaps a deep navy blue accent wall on a white background. It’s bound to be deliciously classy, truly eye-candy worthy!
