Coastal Dining Room Design Ideas

Love the feeling of a day at the beach? Bring the feeling inside with a coastal dining room design. This bright and airy design style is full of those beachy and coastal vibes. And there are many ways this style can come to life—be it an all-out coastal theme or just some subtle hints. This style has a clean aesthetic that’s very laid back and livable. It’s filled with soft tones, pastels and neutral colors that you’d find at the beach—like varying shades of blues, sand, whites, and the occasional pop of green or pink. This look is perfect for those who want a beachy, laid back feel in their home year-round.With soothing blue hues, beachy decor, and weathered wood furniture, coastal design is classically calming and beautiful. We love that coastal dining rooms—with their natural materials and color schemes—make you feel like you’re dining out on a patio, overlooking the ocean. You can almost smell that salty ocean breeze, even if you’re thousands of miles from the beach!Need some coastal dining room design ideas? Start with a dining room table with a lighter visual aesthetic—something with a streamlined design, in a light, weathered wood or a white-washed finish. Pair it with chairs that either have a woven element or go a bit more formal with slip-covered or upholstered chairs in white or flax linen. We also love the unexpected look of a French-style bistro chair in a coastal dining room! And we love light fixtures in rattan, with shell detailing, or even a metal and weathered wood chandelier for a rustic nod. For other furniture and decorative accents, mix in other natural materials like jute, rattan, and rope, as well as weathered woods and whitewashed furniture. Overall, a coastal dining room layout can be pretty traditional—with just a table and chairs, plus a sideboard or bar cart.Beyond furniture, decorative accents help this look really come to life. Depending on how themed you want your coastal dining room design to be, you can be either very subtle or a bit more heavy-handed with the decor. For artwork, go for some framed beach photos or paintings, or perhaps some coral reef or seashell framed prints. You could also go more subtle with abstract paintings in blues and greens. Woven baskets and rugs in natural materials like jute and seagrass are also perfect with this style. Consider peppering in other coastal elements—like a bowl of seashells or a small white coral statue atop your sideboard.Need more ideas?
