In continuation of the beach houses’ topic which has unprecedented interest among readers all over the world, we want to present a short series of small beach houses from different continents. We have already reviewed the sunny California beach house in the modern style that can’t leave anyone indifferent. It is time to see some tips on the small beach house designs that might be used in real interiors.
Florida Beach House
Let’s begin from the US again as we have a really stunning example of how to distribute small space. What is the main thing about the seashore house? Absolutely right, the possibility to rest in the summer and feel energized after surfing, swimming, eating the fruits and have possibility to rest after parties. Therefore, it is quite necessary to keep the layout, rooms and all the interior design simple. And the effective house below confirms that statement.
Staying on the sandy ground, it has quite a strong concrete foundation, lounge zone at the second level and simple gray painted metal sheathing to withstand tropic rain. Moreover, the house also has convenient cat parking at the first level, swing on the chain and the stairs to the second floor.
The first floor only has an entrance to the auxiliary premises where you can store your sports equipment.
Despite the humble size, the beach house visually has plenty of room inside. It is because of skillful space distribution and light finishing. Open ceiling constructions and pendant light create the feeling of volume at the top. To utilize the useful space to the maximum, the living and dining zone are combined. Additionally, we can see the extra space at the top level. This is an improvised bedroom or kids’ room. However, the stairs leading there are not safe enough to recommend using such construction at home.
Behind the dining zone, there is a free creative space for rest that consists of low storage level with the wooden top making the interesting leisure time possible.
Welcome to Sunny Spain
The next beach house is a small cottage in Spain, at the seashore of the Mediterranean sea.
West-Southern Europeans are fond of being outside the house in the warm evenings, chatting and drinking wine after siesta. So the outdoor lounge plays a special role. Many people prefer to have a veranda, patio or some else place to rest at home in addition to the outdoor lounge area.
Combining the dining zone and living area is a forced necessity. Although, the dining achieved its own separated with arched ceiling zone and lightweight wicker imitating lampshades over the table. This made the dining group a logical prolongation of the living room and quite a cozy place to rest as well.
The bedroom is personal room for the hosts. Ceiling built-in fixtures and cooling fan really matter for comfortable stay during hot summer.
Bedside and legboard tables make the time after sunset comfortable for leisure too. You can read a book, place some personal things like a mobile phone near you and also enjoy coffee or fruit brought at the tray.
Australian Beach House
How about the Pacific ocean-facing house? This two-story lightweight building really amazes with an open view of panoramic windows. This makes the whole construction almost elusive. You can barely feel the borders of concrete walls thus enjoying the boundless space and the power of nature!
The feeling of volume and space all over the place stuns. It is quite easy to design the interior with such great architecture. Anyways, the inner decoration and design solutions really worth another compliment. The dining zone with the view of the terrace and ocean is a spectacular place to have meals. Mid-century dining group found harmony among the spacious mild gray atmosphere and disposes to measured relaxing.
The stone slab floor is really an indicator of genuine Scandinavian style in the house. The fireplace, firewood storage rack both built into the wall and the suspended cabinet only supports the image of minimalistic Scandi design.
