We’re back with another ‘Get This Look’ post and today we’re focusing on this beautiful coastal inspired basement kitchenette. This space was from home #38 in the 2016 Utah Valley Parade of Homes and was built by McEwan Custom Homes.

Now, technically, this kitchenette wasn’t actually in a basement. It was in the home’s pool house. But, since we know most of us don’t have a pool house to update, we thought this would make for a stunning basement kitchenette look!
How to Get the Look: Coastal Inspired Basement Kitchenette
If you can’t go bold, bright, and whimsical in a children’s space, where else can you do it? If you love this look, as well, but don’t know where to start in your own home, we’ve outlined some tips and sources below to get you started! We’ve found some nearly identical items (and some are the exact ones) so you can recreate this playful look in your own home!
BOARD AND BATTEN GRID WALL
Some people consider all white walls boring. But, when you add an architectural feature like that board and batten grid wall, you immediately make the white walls much more interesting! This can be a very affordable way to add a higher-end look when you use MDF boards from your local lumber store. For the white, we’d recommend Benjamin Moore Simply White for a warmer tone, or Benjamin Moore Decorator’s White for a purer version.
ADD NAVY BLUE ELEMENTS
The addition of navy blue in this otherwise white space adds a coastal vibe and playfulness to this space. We’d recommend a color like Benjamin Moore Hale Navy for a similar look.
The floating shelves add interest to the white accent wall and are a great way to display unique items or your own personal collections. This is a much more affordable alternative to cabinet uppers and it adds a fun design element to the space!
The bold, graphic cement tiles pack a major punch in this basement kitchenette area. This pattern, in contrasting gray tones, adds visual interest, but also help to hide dirt in a high traffic area. You could also attempt a DIY project by painting or staining your existing concrete floors in the pattern and colors of your choosing and them sealing them.
