Breezy Beach Style Any room with an ocean view seems like the perfect setting to try out cheerful beach style. Universally popular, always on trend and easy to achieve, beach style turns that kitchen with a fascinating view into an extension of the charming outdoors. Modern beach style relies on top-notch ventilation, plenty of white and a hint blue brought in by decor and accessories. A beach-style kitchen with a spacious central island and a casual dining space next to it is the perfect way to give your home a cool, central family zone.

Gone are the days when the kitchen was filled with just polished plastic surfaces and design that was typical of the 90#x2019;s #x2019;cubicle#x2019; trend.

Waves in the Distance A kitchen with an ocean view need not be just relegated to homes that sit right next to the beach, as those in the distance can also make the most of their location with some smart design. A home sitting on an elevated lot and offering a bird‘s eye view of the coastline in the distance allows you to shape a kitchen that enables you to savor the scenery without letting it dominate the ambiance of the room.
