Looking for a way to bring the breeziness of the beach to your home? If so, consider turning your home into a beautiful coastal space. So, what exactly is a coastal space? Good question! Essentially, it uses soft tones, a clean aesthetic, coastal living decor, and plenty of natural light to bring summer to your home year round. If you’re intrigued and wondering how you can create your own coastal oasis, keep reading.
1. Don’t Be Afraid to Go Bright
If you’re hoping to create a coastal style home, pops of bright, vibrant colors are your best friend. Consider painting your front door orange. Or, a wall in your living room turquoise. If you’re a bit color shy, start with a few colorful coastal decor accessories like throw pillows or table runners.
2. Add Greenery
To bring the outdoors in and create a relaxing atmosphere you’re proud to call your own, greenery is a must. Try banana leaves or palm fronds, two plants that will make you feel like you’re living life on an exotic island. Greenery can be added in just about any room in your home, including the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and dining room.
3. Choose the Right Curtains
Sheer curtains are one of the most important pieces of coastal decor for your bedroom and living room. They’ll allow the natural light to flow in your home and give it that light, airy feel that everyone admires about a coastal space. Save your dark, thick curtains for a log cabin.
4. Change the Knobs
Little details like cabinet knobs can make a big statement in your coastal style home. Swap any existing knobs you have with those that feature dolphins, sea turtles, shells, and anything else that reminds you of the ocean and sand. Shop our collection of quality coastal hardware today.
5. Accessorize in Moderation
If you have too many coastal living decor items in your home, it may begin to feel like a coastal souvenir shop. That’s why it's a good idea to focus on small touches like hardware that can add a pop of beachy style without being overwhelming.
6. Remember the Outdoor Spaces
A coastal home is not complete unless its outdoor spaces make you feel like you’re at the beach. Pay attention to your deck, porch, patio. Think ceiling fans, rugs, and hanging artwork that can turn your outdoor spaces from ordinary to coastal.
While a coastal style home isn’t for everyone, it could be a good option if you love the beach and are in search of a way to transform your home into a unique, relaxing piece of paradise.
