Modern Beach Houses

The decoration of a modern beach house can be very different from that of an urban house, as they usually use the Mediterranean style, especially if they have plenty of natural light. The goal of all decoration is to create spacious places, even if the dimensions of the house are small, with its basic facilities, functional and, above all, create an atmosphere that conveys joy and relaxation.

Above all, comfort should be a priority and special emphasis should be placed on the common areas: terrace, pool, garden, living room and dining room. These rooms should have a special decoration. As for the distribution, beach houses should enhance socialization, so if there is a possibility to remove some walls to unify spaces, it is a good time to do it. For example, open the kitchen to the living room.

That is why our goal is to share with you the main elements to take into account when decorating a modern beach house:

1. Furniture

In beach houses are used few furniture and often, of style more implemented is vintage or restored. Because this style of furniture blends perfectly with the set, where the white color usually dominates.

Another option is natural fiber furniture, since it is a light and fresh material, ideal to enjoy in summer. You can also place a comfortable armchair with some cushions in the living room or on the porch, if you have one, to enjoy the sea breeze.

The materials must be resistant and easy to clean. As for the decoration, it should be simple and pleasant.

2. Decorative elements

The most commonly used decorative elements can be shells that you collect on your beach walks, pictures of boats, etc. You can also put some typical element of the region where the house is located, an object of local craftsmanship will always give a more authentic touch to the place.

3. Exterior decoration

The exterior of the beach houses is dominated by flowers, fabrics and decorative details. If you have good views you can install a bench integrated in the construction to enjoy the sunset or rest when you feel like it. For the night you can install lampposts integrated into the walls.

The auxiliary furniture should have very simple lines to highlight the architectural details of the porch and, if desired, with brightly colored cushions, such as orange or yellow.

These are some of the common features of modern beach houses, but the design and features may vary according to location, budget and personal preferences. In general, these homes are designed to offer comfort, relaxation and a close connection to the natural beauty of the coastal environment.
