What if we told you that you don’t have to, you can create your very own beach house feel in the comfort of your own home. It’s no secret that this style is one of the most desired interior styles right now and creating this theme throughout your home can be very easy.

Let’s start with the basics, decide which type of flooring material you want to install.

If your looking to create a modern beach house look, then wood-look flooring is the style to go for. There are 2 types of wood-look flooring that we love to use namely luxury vinyl and porcelain wood-look.

Both options are durable, easy to clean and maintain. Trust us, if you are lucky enough to stay close to the beach then either one of these materials will be a great option to consider as they will be able to handle sandy feet, salty air and water.

Here are 4 styles to consider.

LIGHT NATURAL LOOK

Light wood-look flooring will create a more spacious feel in a room, giving it a more modern appeal. Lighter tiles are also ideal for dark rooms that receive little natural light. It also adds warmth and texture to the space, creating that perfect cozy beach house feel.

WHITE WASH

You can easily achieve a shabby chic, beach, vintage and even rustic styled theme throughout your space with whitewash flooring. It is the ideal flooring choice to create a cosy, peaceful atmosphere in your own home.

DISTRESSED LOOK

Distressed wood-look is where old meets new. If you like a more rustic look then this is the wood-look style for you. It goes with just about anything and you can get it in dark and lighter colours to suit your interior. Pair it with vintage beach house furniture to create a stunning contrast.

DARK WOOD-LOOK

If you like the wood-look feel, but prefer the appeal of darker wood then consider a darker wood-look tile.  However, dark flooring can make a room appear smaller and darker than it really is, especially if the room is naturally dark. If this is the case, think about combining the wooden flooring with light-coloured walls to prevent the room from appearing too gloomy.

INTERESTING LAYOUT

Colour is not the only change you can make to your flooring to achieve that beach house feel. Take it a step further and install your chosen wood-look tiles in a chevron layout.

Choosing a colour or layout that suits your personality and space is very easy, simply draw inspiration from your surroundings and existing architecture.

Feel like taking it a step further and renovating your kitchen and bathroom? Or perhaps you just need advice on which wood-look flooring to match with your existing kitchen countertop or bathroom vanity? We’ve handed picked a few ideas that will help you extend the beach house feel into your kitchen and bathroom.

WHITE & WOOD

White countertops and vanities go with any shade of wood-look tiles. Whether you like a plain white top or a marble top with soft details, it will compliment natural wood colour tones perfectly. In the examples above and below you will see how the wood contrasts the white interiors. You can’t go wrong by pairing white with wood.

SHADES OF BLUE

Blue is an iconic colour found in beach homes and nautic styled interiors, most likely brought in through striped scatter cushions and throws, but there are many other ways to add blue to your kitchen and bathroom. Install a countertop with shades of blue, this goes exceptionally well with lighter wood colours and white.

GREY MOOD

Grey is a very versatile colour and can be matched with just about any other colour. Which makes it a great choice for beach home interiors, especially if you are not a fan of all white or blue. Choose a material that plays with movement and shades of grey and match it with rich wood-look colours or white wash. If you prefer something more simple then a simple light grey countertop will also look great with lighter wood-look flooring.
