with a modern
Modern coastal kitchens are light, bright and airy. Organic elements, particularly wooden features, give a textural feel and relaxing vibe, reminding you of your last summer holiday.
Two-tone cabinetry fits this style well, particularly white and light wood cabinetry. Flat-panel matt cabinetry with breakout sections of vertical panelling as a feature is trending right now in this style kitchen design.
Galley style kitchens are the typical layout for this style kitchen design as it mimics the galley on a boat. Coastal kitchens also incorporate lots of light so you will frequently see glass window splashbacks and lots of feature windows to bring the outside in.
Coastal kitchens tend to favour a tiled splashback. Light blues or greens work well to contrast the white on white elements. Open and feature shelving designs really suit a modern coastal style kitchen as it allows you to decorate with coastal style decorations and ornaments.

Vertical panelling on an island or cabinetry enhances the modern coastal style and creates a beautiful texture. We recommend using Polytec Thermolaminated doors and panels, as they offer a variety of styles and thicknesses to compliment your design.
In the kitchen design shown above we have used Polytec Calcutta to create the striking vertical feature to the back of the island bench.
