Our Favorite Coastal Home Design Tips

Our Favorite Coastal Home Design Tips

Coastal style is known for its light, relaxing and inviting nature. But while this kind of aesthetic is rooted in a seamless simplicity, it sometimes isn’t as easy to capture as the finished look may suggest. Read along as we have rounded up 11 of our favorite coastal home design tips to bring that coveted breezy feeling to any beach home interior.

1.     Design Around Your View

If your home offers a view of the sea or a lake, this should be your design focal point — always! Play up these natural elements by placing beds, desks, sofas and more facing out towards the water for premiere views from sunrise to sunset.

 

2.     Add Bold Pops Of Color

While coastal style relies on a lot of neutral color schemes, it is also important to incorporate some bold pops of color to add in a bit of life and personality. Colors like a deep marina blue, a strong yellow, or an enchanting coral shade are the perfect accents to an otherwise neutral space.

 

3.     Select Fuss-Free Upholstery

With sand waiting just outside every beach home’s front door, it is imperative to make upholstery selections that can stand up to these natural elements! With pieces that are outfitted with performance fabric, you are guaranteed beautiful style through years of use.

 

4.     Opt For Wooden Flooring

Sand and salt can affect more than just your upholstery. Flooring, too, is another area where you want to be as mindful as possible. Selecting wood flooring is typically the preferred choice as it is much easier to clean compared to carpet. Plus, the natural texture enhances the overall coastal vibe of a home, so it’s a win-win!

 

5.     Don’t Forget About Storage

Going to the beach requires a lot of different items! From flip flops, to hats, towels, sunscreen and more, a successful beach house design needs to offer plenty of storage spots for all of your coastal accessories.

 

6.     Choose An Open Floor Plan

Often a beach trip can mean congregating together with family and friends, which is why it is important that a beach home features a comfortable floor plan. Opting for an open floor plan will make your space feel bigger and it will offer more than enough space for meals, game time, and more.

 

7.     Layer Textures

Coastal design is all about those textures! From smooth, sanded materials to earthy wrapped rattan, making sure there are a multitude of textures in any given room is key.

 

8.  Don’t Go Overboard with Coastal Accents

While some coastal accents are, of course, appropriate, there is a fine line between just enough and too much. Avoid cliché items like seashells in the bathroom etc.

 

9.   Include Plenty Of Creature Comforts 

A beach home is often where you go to relax, so including plenty of interior comforts is a must! And this is an area where you can’t go overboard — so bring on the blankets, the plush rugs, the cozy pillows and more!

 

10.  Add Entertainment Accents

Don’t forget to create a nook in your home specifically for entertaining! Items such as bar cabinets and carts are the perfect complement to evenings after a day at the beach or a cozy brunch before heading out.

 

11.  Take A Minimalist Approach

A staple of coastal style is breeziness and simplicity, which tends to favor a more minimal approach. When in doubt, it is always a good idea to be more conservative with decorative accents.

  • Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

    - Someone does a search and winds up at domesticpossessions.com.

    - They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

    - And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

    - Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

    - There they go.

    This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

    But you CAN fix that.

  • Good day,

    My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with domesticpossessions.com definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out domesticpossessions.com.

    It could be a game-changer for your business – and it gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately (and there’s literally a 100X difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes.)

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.
