5 Coastal Design Ideas for Your Home

5 Coastal Design Ideas for Your Home

The coast has been a rich source of inspiration for designers for years. Colors, textures, and patterns feature widely in decor and home accessories.

Vacations are associated with fun and happiness. Often the places we visit become a home away from home. But our two weeks vacation time never seem to be enough. So we bring a little of that back with us to last us for the rest of the year. Bring the coast into your home with these simple tips.

1. Flooring

At the start of any renovation or home improvement project, it is important to consider flooring. After all, your furniture and possessions will sit on top of this. So it makes sense to deal with this first. Your floor choice will become a blank canvas for your to expand upon. It will also provide a focal point. There are many ways you can introduce a beach theme to your flooring. For example, if you’re searching for stylish Hampton home floor ideas, then oak timber flooring is a perfect choice. Simple touches such as rugs and mats can also add a beach or sea-theme. This can be achieved with color, texture, and pattern.


2. Color

Colors of the beach and ocean are rich and varied. They range from sandy tones to vibrant blues and greens. Color is a subtle way to incorporate coastal themes into your home. Ideas include:

  • Introducing blocks of colors to walls and doors
  • Adding carpeting, tiles, and rugs
  • Painting furniture
  • Adding small colorful accessories
  • Using beach colors in your home textiles such as cushions and table linen


3. Home Textiles

When you’re away on vacation, take lots of photos of styles, colors, and patterns you like. When you get home, they can be replicated throughout the house.

Adding curtains, cushions, and table cloths are simple changes that take little work. Unless, of course, you choose to make them yourself. When placed thoughtfully, they can have a big impact on the overall aesthetic.


4. Ornaments and Accessories

Introducing ornaments and accessories is a simple way to create a beach theme. Knick-knacks from your travels will personalize your living space. Items are likely to be unique to you. Shells and pebbles from your favorite beach may have personal significance. They work well with other nature themes.
Photographs from your travels make great artwork. The trend is to share photos online through Instagram and other services. Print out a few of your favorites and have them framed. Use them to adorn walls, shelves, and other surfaces.


5. Don’t Forget the Garden

When planning your theme, don’t forget the garden. Items such as shells, driftwood, and fishing nets have survived in the sea. Therefore, they are ideal for garden decoration. Found items will be unique and may have a special significance.

Another way to bring a coastal theme to your garden is to paint the woodwork. Fences and fascias can be painted. And some people paint their sheds to match colorful beach huts.

There are lots of ways to bring some coastal inspiration into your home. When you’re on holiday, look around for ideas. Notice how the properties in the area use these themes in their homes. Take lots of photos to capture colors, textures, and patterns. Go beachcombing to gather shells and other found objects. Then add your own touches for a personal and unique look.
