Step 1: Flooring
Nothing transforms the room like new floor. Bestlaminate has an entire style category dedicated to coastal decors. From ashy & soft greys or browns, to the purest shades of white, there is most definitely a coastal decor laminate for your project. Flooring is what makes or breaks a beach theme so choose your flooring wisely.
White washed laminate flooring will surely please someone looking for a typical coastal, bleached floor look. The look is light and airy. This flooring is something that would be unique to your home, as the look is truly one of a kind. Floors like this one, with a white-washed look will be a fantastic choice for coastal properties, since white, blue and gray and beige tones play such an important role in creating cape-cod, beachy atmosphere. The look and feel of the ocean can be felt when you walk across this flooring.
Step 2: Furniture
Once you have made a decision in regards to what flooring you will install, take a look at your furniture. Every room needs a focal point. A compelling focal point expresses your unique style and pulls a room together, expressing both balance and harmony within the space. When creating a coastal inspired room keep in mind that the beach has a light, care free feeling. Heavy, dark furniture would not be a great match when it comes to a beach themed room. If you have heavy, dark furniture, you may want to invest in lighter colored throw pillows and take an assessment of your window treatments.
You can create a masterpiece by converting your old but comfortable chair into something extraordinary by simply purchasing new fabric and using an upholstery service if you can not do it by yourself. If refinishing of your furniture is an option – do it. Whitewashed and hand scraped textures are essential when creating a coastal atmosphere. Plus will save lots of money by using what you have. Other touches to consider are interior shutters, driftwood accents, and wicker furniture.
Step 3: Color
Color. Who doesn’t love color? Your home is probably full of the colors that you truly love to be around. If you are a nature lover, you probably have earth tone colors throughout your home. Maybe you love to live through bright, vibrant colors. Or, maybe you enjoy a more colorful, subtle tone throughout your home.
When you are selecting paint for your beach home theme keep in mind that light, airy, and white-washed colors not only brings a sense of tranquility, but also a very unique look.
Accents in coastal colors, such as blues, whites, and beige tones can help bring out the beach theme in your home. A fresh coat of paint, accompanied by the look and feel of the ocean, will make your home the talk of the town.
Step 4: Lighting
Step 5: Customize
The most exciting thing about home remodeling is the possibility to create something that reflects your style, dreams and taste. Don’t be afraid to be creative or to use unconventional materials. You are the designer here!
