Blue and White Beach Style Kitchens
If there is one color scheme that you cannot go wrong with in the beach style kitchen, then it is undoubtedly blue and white. If you are thinking of turning your modern kitchen in white into one that has a more beach-inspired look, then all you need to do is turn to a bit of blue for that additional magic! This can come in the form of coastal accents, decorative pieces, bar stools or even a new backsplash that draws the attention of your guests almost instantly. In the open plan living, this gives you an opportunity to change the color palette of the living space as well and do so without worrying about it being garish.
Wood Adds Elegance to the Setting
Natural finishes feel perfectly at home in the smart beach style kitchen and you can enhance the appeal of the kitchen with décor in rattan and bamboo as well. If you are a bit worried about those audacious rattan pendants or even bamboo bar stools, then try out simpler wooden accents and finishes first. If your kitchen already has wooden flooring, then the process becomes even easier. Nature and beach style go hand-in-hand with ease and you will not have to try too hard to make things work here.
White all the Way!
Not a big fan of bold color in the kitchen? Happy with a kitchen that feels cheerful and modern even while offering you ample design flexibility? Then the all-white beach style kitchen is one that you need to try out today. Instead of turning to colors like blue, use organic finishes and textural beauty to usher in contrast. It might seem a bit monochromatic at times. This is when you can use a vase or fresh flowers to add just that pinch of color; one that can be changed with ease at a moments notice. Full of life and perfect for the ergonomic modern world, these white wonders serve you well for years to come.
