Browse these kitchens for subtle coastal accents or nautical-themed decor to create your own beach-inspired kitchen.
Welcoming Coastal Kitchen
The designer wanted guests to feel like they could just walk in and hang out in this space. All of the living areas connect, so to avoid cluttering the open floor plan with too many cabinets, almost everything—from flatware to everyday dishes—is well organized and stowed away in drawers. This also makes it easy for guests of all agest to access kitchen essentials.
Glass pendant lights over the bar mimic candles resting in huricane holders, an element typically found on outdoor dining tables.
The woven plastic seats and backs on the barstools by Serena & Lily hold up well against wet bathing suits.
Blue Beach Kitchen
Waves of blue drench this kitchen. A pale shade covers the walls and ceiling while a deeper shade is used on the cabinets. The wood floors carry a third shade of blue. Such colors are a perfect reflection of the shades of ocean water.
This kitchen has an interplay of neutral and pale blue tones. The cabinetry, marble countertops, and backsplash create an off-white backdrop for bowls, trays, and dishware. Nautical-style lighting above the island helps carry the subtle coastal look into this space.

Playful Breakfast Nook
A window-filled alcove functions like a dining room with a casual table, two slipcovered end chairs, and a pillow-topped banquette. The built-in bench and wall of windows make this small space seem much larger. Two vintage light fixtures hung with nautical rope instead of standard chains illuminate the space in this beach house.
