Does the new year inspire you to remodel rooms in your home? Have you ever re-done a room not because it needed updating, but just because you wanted a new look? I’m guilty of wanting to change cabinet hardware or a paint color, just to mix things up a little. Since I know you’re busy working, cooking, cleaning, and hopefully having fun, we’re going to search for inspiration ideas for you, with a focus on rooms in a beach cottage.
I love the beams and ceiling as well as the rustic floor in this kitchen, you can easily sweep the sand up at the end of the day. The yellow and gray are bright and cheery and make this small kitchen seem bigger.
While I love the look of open cabinets, it would never work for me, because we’re just not neat enough to make it work. The idea of a reading nook in the kitchen is fabulous!
Using furniture in the kitchen for storage and cabinets is a fun trend often seen on home improvement programs. If you already have the pieces or could pick up some furniture and customize it yourself, this would give the kitchen a lot of personality.
This kitchen uses an open plan instead of cabinets and has a very crisp, clean look.
I love the gorgeous wood floors as they contrast with the whiteboard ceiling. I’m also a big fan of the bureau that’s being used as an island.
The use of different color blues with the white bead board looks great in this cottage kitchen.
This kitchen uses colors that pop along with white beadboard and glass front cabinets for some old school charm.
If you have a beach cottage, you probably spend a LOT of time outside. This kitchen understands you want to bring the outside in with a window from the kitchen opening to an outside bar.
