Looking for the best coastal kitchen decor ideas and inspiration? Decorating the kitchen in your beach or summer home can be tricky. Some people just paint the cabinets blue in their kitchen and call it a day, but there are so many different ways to decorate a kitchen in the coastal style that it’s worth taking a closer look at what you can do.
We’ve rounded up several modern coastal kitchen images to show you the variety of decorating styles you can be inspired by. From sea-glass backsplash to white rattan chairs, there are lots of unique decorating ideas in this post. Coastal decor doesn’t have to be complicated and these modern kitchens are a testament to that.
Let’s get started with some of our favorite beach home kitchen designs.
1. Blue Open Shelving
Open shelving can help kitchens feel light and airy – just the feeling you want in a summer home kitchen.
2. Modern Minimalist Vibe
Keep it simple with blue-gray cabinets and a pretty pearl backsplash.
3. Rattan Pendant Lights and Palm Decor
Rattan pendant lights are a huge trend in coastal decor right now!
4. Navy Apron Sink
Most sinks are silver or white. Why not have some fun by picking a navy apron sink like this one?
5. Sea Blue Kitchen Island, Stripe Rug and French Bistro Counter Chairs
I love the various shades of blue in this kitchen. Don’t be afraid to play with light and dark shades. The counter chairs from Serena & Lily are just divine, too. Check out more of the best French bistro counter chairs, too.

Since dark cabinets can make a room feel heavy, I’d recommend going with navy cabinets for your coastal kitchen only if it is very well lit by plenty of windows!

If you have a white kitchen, then adding a fun patterned backsplash tile can give it some character.

I love the idea of displaying blue and green tableware in glass kitchen cabinets.

This backsplash gives a sea-glass effect in all the pastel beach colors!

Blue counter chairs for the win.
15. Sea Blue Subway Backsplash Tile
Subway tile is a versatile choice that everyone is sure to love.
16. Blue Island
When in doubt, go with a blue kitchen island!

Not everything has to be bright blue. This soft blue-gray cabinet color is relaxing on the eyes.
