Would you like to enjoy that special feeling of freedom and serenity at home, which only happens during vacation by the sea? Let us try to create kitchen interior in Marine style! We offer you a few ideas on how to transform an ordinary kitchen into a real mess or veranda in the house on the beach.
It is not hard to recreate marine style in the kitchen interior. This style is good because it provides plenty of opportunities for experimentation. First of all, you may experiment with themed accessories.
The most simple and obvious way to remind about holiday and sea is to use the next staff in marine kitchen décor: seashells, sea stars, colored stones, pebbles and other stuff, brought from warm countries. They can be simply spread out on open shelves or in a welsh dresser. You may decorate kitchen set, lamps or the walls in the kitchen with “marine” panel.
By the way, the “application” of sea pebbles, smalt, pearlescent shells, or fragments of blue, dark blue or pearl ceramic tiles is a great way to update boring facades of white kitchen furniture.
Marine style in the interior is an exquisite model of a ship on a shelf, a small round mirror in polished metal frame in imitation of a porthole, an aquarium with colorful fish and coral, barometer, telescope, hourglass and compass and other naval attributes.
However, there are less obvious, but no less effective ways to add a marine mood. For example, you may add “sea” dishes — white with blue stripes or spotted. Blue jug with an image of sea stars on the chubby side or blue cooking utensils. Bamboo blinds or decorative shutters of bleached wood, light linen curtains or decorative curtain of strung on long strings of shells, or blue beads. Sea interior of the kitchen is perfectly complemented with natural materials like jute and sisal. Home textiles of unpainted canvas, cotton or linen in white, grey, blue and dark blue blend well with marine interior. You may add striped “marine” cushion chairs, decorative pillows and linen tablecloth.
The basis of marine style is neutral tones: beige, sand, white, blue, dark blue. Their combination in the kitchen creates an atmosphere of relaxation, tranquility and total relaxation. By the way, they visually expand the space. Instead of the blue and dark blue colors in the interior, you may use cool shades of green, as they resemble the water at great depths. “Sea” shades create a feeling of coolness and freshness, so the marine style is suitable for the kitchen, which faces the South or East side.
Marine style floor is made of simple planks of whitewashed wood, in imitation of the deck. The original decision is to put panels of glass on the floor, under the panels you can put decorative composition of sand, pebbles, corals or shells.
Simple bluff furniture is appropriate for the kitchen. It should be made of light wood: pine or birch. It should not look too new, on the contrary, a little rubbed, slightly discolored and definitely matte. As long as it was practical, solid and reliable. Knotted furniture of rattan or willow will fit the interior perfectly. You may finish the ceiling and walls with wooden panels. Another option is to use decorative tile for the kitchen or a mosaic with marine motifs.
Marine style of the interior may be accentuated with accessories of brass, easy pottery, lamps, lanterns or sconces in the form of marine life. Decorative fishing net, nautical knots rope, decorative bottles make it ideal for the interior in Maritime style.
In this kitchen you may really spend hours, enjoying absolute tranquility, delicious food and pleasant conversations.
