Coastal Dining Rooms

There are a variety of homes for sale in Atlantic Beach FL built with a coastal design flair. Glenn Layton Homes offer true coastal style and beauty, along with the best in modern building. Their homes are designed to make it easy to combine indoor and outdoor living, which is a hallmark of the coastal lifestyle. One of the ways people make the most of the Florida climate is with dining indoors and outdoors. Glenn Layton Homes feature enticing patios, porches, and verandas for easy outdoor living, but they also include spacious dining rooms indoors, providing you with a wealth of entertaining opportunities.

A dedicated dining room doesn’t have to be ornate and formal. Using a variety of materials, colors, and decorating options, you can create a room that continues the laidback coastal vibe found throughout your home. The result will be a room that is welcoming, relaxing, and perfect for delicious dinners spent with family and friends.

One way to invoke the coastal style is through simplicity. A rustic table, paired with modern, clean-lined chairs in a white or pale color to match the walls creates a soothing environment where a few simple but bold table decorations, such as large, dark green banana leaves in vases become the focal point. This also ensures that the food laid out along the table becomes the real star of the meal.

Alternatively, you could draw the eye upward with a dramatic chandelier hanging over the table. Whether it’s made of glass in the colors of the ocean or decorated dramatically with a variety of sea shells, a coastal-themed light fixture above the table will help set the mood. You can draw further inspiration with your table setting, using light blue napkins or plates, and scattering a few of your own shells and sand dollars found on walks along the beach.

If your dining room opens out onto a patio or porch, consider tying the two dining spaces together by using similar tables and chairs. It not only creates visual continuity, but it enhances the idea of true indoor/outdoor living.

Coastal living tends to be more relaxed, so to make the most of your dining room, choose tables and chairs that can move easily from a lazy Sunday brunch to an elegant dinner, while also serving as a space to sort out the day’s shell collection or put together a puzzle. A classic table can easily go from being covered in newspaper to being draped in fine linen. With comfortable but classic rattan chairs, you will have a space that won’t go to waste.

New homes for sale in Atlantic Beach FL offer plenty of ways to make your home truly meet your needs. With some thoughtful decorating, you’ll be living the coastal dream.
