Flooring for A Coastal Look


Flooring for A Coastal Look

Light, bright, calm, and collected. Coastal design embodies the effortless beauty of a seaside retreat. However, this laidback and approachable aesthetic does not require ocean views to work. The right flooring can help transform any space into a comfortable, tranquil oasis.

Coastal Design

Coastal interiors are all about keeping things natural, light, airy and neutral. White, beige, ecru, and sand are clean colors that evoke the breezy feeling of the shore. Neutrals are not only cozy, but they are aesthetically reassuring, easy on the eyes, and evoke a sense of comfort. Set the tone for your space with light and bright flooring and white woodwork and you will be hearing the waves crash in no time. 

Light Hardwood Floors

Breezy shades of birch, beachy whites, and bright oaks all work perfectly for a coastal style. These lighter hardwood floors create a sunny, cheerful atmosphere that is inviting and accessible. Available in both solid and engineered construction, their light color is also great for disguising pet hair, dust, debris, and sand.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring 

If you like the look of wood but crave durability and affordability, luxury vinyl flooring might be the solution. Available in just about any style you could imagine, this flooring can even be installed directly on top of your existing floors. It is waterproof and scratch resistant, so the water and sand, whether real or imagined, outside of your coastal oasis won’t stand a chance.

Wood Look Tile  

Wood look tile has the warm look of wood with the durability of tile. Available in ceramic or porcelain, it is made from fired clay and designed to mimic the grain, finishes and plank sizes of hardwood. Tile can withstand kids and pets and is a great option for damp areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Perfect for high traffic areas and cooling homes in warmer climates, it is easy to find a wood look tile with a coastal flair.
