Coastal, beach-inspired design is perfectly suited to homes in the Shallotte, Ocean Isle Beach, and Southport areas. This design style is meant to reflect the coastal environment, so it often features natural textures, nautical details, and shades of blue and white.

Light, Distressed Hardwoods

Hardwood is one of the most classic and popular flooring choices for coastal design. But we’re not talking about just any hardwood; light tones and natural, distressed finishes are best if you want that beach-inspired look. Be sure to consider whitewashed, gray, distressed, and hand-scraped styles if you are choosing hardwood floors for your beach house. Think of driftwood and other aged, weathered wood when drawing inspiration.

Natural Fiber Carpets

If you prefer carpeting in certain areas of your home, be sure to consider styles made of natural, woven fibers like sisal, jute, coir, and seagrass. Many of these materials are in fact grown in coastal areas around the world, so they blend perfectly with beach-inspired style. You can go all out with wall-to-wall carpeting, or add just a touch of natural texture with a strategically placed area rug.

Blue Accent Tile

Of course, the ocean’s many shades of blue are a major source of inspiration for coastal design. Glass and ceramic tile are available in shades of navy, aqua, turquoise, and more, and they add the perfect pop of color to kitchens and bathrooms. Use them to add a coastal accent to your kitchen backsplash or shower surround.

We hope that these flooring ideas have inspired you to transform your space into a relaxing coastal retreat. Call or visit Floor Coverings International Shallotte today for help selecting and installing new floors in your seaside home!
