In general, custom kitchens are meant to transform a person from reality into a favorite location. In this case, a coastal design creates a fantasy of being in a beach house. There are soft colors, natural materials, and an open floor plan that maximize natural light. The appeal of the space is timeless, fresh, and relaxing. Wood flooring brings the feeling of sand beneath the feet as well. Rattan accessories add interest and create an earthy vibe. Many times, a backsplash is crafted from a light-reflecting material, which adds to the airy appeal and delivers a touch of glamor. A large island provides an excellent place to prepare a meal or for friends to gather. It creates a private beach oasis without being at the shore.
