If you do not have the luxury of time to visit the beach very often, why not bring the beach right into your homes? Yes, you can make this happen by adding some beach-inspired designs for your outdoor space. Here are some of the ideas you can consider:
People these days are no longer afraid of playing with colours for almost anything that they have built. Now, you can choose to have a colourful porch that highlights greens depicting that of nature. You can add vibrant hues inside the porch and use some asymmetrical designs for your throw pillows. You may also opt to paint piece of furniture with nature-inspired colours to bring in that beach vibe into the outdoor structure.
An intimate porch
The beach is a perfect getaway for couples who want to have a romantic day together. Choose to have a second-floor porch in your home so it will be easier to keep things private between you and your partner even when the bright lights of the sun are up. Use solid railings and overhanging eaves to make the entire idea more perfect. Bring in some cosy, dark-coloured furniture pieces in the area to make it more romantic. Make sure though that the cushions go more on the lighter colour.
The tropical porch
The beach is often associated with the tropical theme and what better way to have a beach-inspired outdoor theme than to have a tropical porch designed for you. Turn your casual gatherings into an alfresco setting with a porch that comes with louvered doors that seem to open to a better view of your garden or your swimming pool. Since a tropical porch typically is mostly made of wooden materials, you can add a soft touch to it by using some canvas curtains for more privacy within the area. You can accentuate the whole area with furniture pieces or pillows that come in a blue colour hue for added beach-inspired effect.
An outdoor structure for fish prep
If you want to enjoy the beach even more, you will certainly love the idea of a fish prep station in the outdoors where you can cook the freshest catch for the day. You can choose to have it designed right into your garage. Save some space for your very own fish grilling station too just in case you feel like eating your fish hot off the grill.
Fully-functional outdoor kitchen
You can use that small area in your porch to have a tucked-in kitchen where you can cook food whilst dining out with friends and loved ones. Designing this are using white colours will bring in that beach atmosphere into the addition. Paint everything white and add some touch of wooden furniture pieces to the idea. You can also include a charcoal grill in that cosy space of yours.
The perfectly-built sunroom
The beach is always associated with the sun thus it will be a good idea to have an outdoor space with a sunroom if you feel like bringing in the beach right into your own home. You can have a sunroom attached into your home and enjoy your very own breathtaking sceneries in your garden even with the most adverse weather outside. You can opt to have some sides of the structure open too so you can breathe in some fresh air if you want.
Some Asian countries like Thailand and Indonesia are best known for their beaches thus if you want a real feel of the beach, why not incorporate an Asian-themed design into your pergola? You can have a comfortable seating area in your pergola and plant some vines so that when these plants grow, you will be able to enjoy your very own canopy that seems to be growing out of nowhere. Yes the vines will be able to create that canopy for you. You can also draw inspiration from the beaches in Bermuda and the Mediterranean.
An open-air pavilion
If you want to have that breathy, comfortable of the outdoors similar to what you experience when you visit the beaches around town, you can build an open-air pavilion near your pool area. You can use the same place when you want to entertain guests at night time or even if you want to take time out from the scorching heat of the sun during pool parties. You can mix and match colours in the area but it will be best to have some blues and whites all around. You can put in wooden lounging chairs into the pavilion then add a porthole-style window just near the pavilion’s roof. Canvas curtains can be used in it too.
