Must-Have Items for Every New Homeowner at The Beach

October 27, 2023

Imagine the sun-drenched mornings, the gentle hum of waves in the distance and the scent of saltwater wafting through the air. As you step into your brand-new home in the Friendship Creek community, the coastal charm and relaxed ambiance of Bethany Beach surround you. While every abode here has its unique allure, there are certain things to buy for a new house that will truly make it your sanctuary. Dive with us into the world of coastal essentials and make your new residence a true reflection of the captivating Bethany Beach lifestyle.

Coastal Living Room Comforts

The living room is where memories are made, stories are shared and relaxation is a daily ritual. To breathe the beachy air into this space:

  • Opt for coastal-themed decor such as driftwood centerpieces, rope-accented pieces and marine-inspired trinkets.
  • Choose plush seating in hues of soft blues, sandy beiges and crisp whites to recreate the seaside palette indoors.
  • Incorporate ambient lighting with lantern-style lamps or string lights reminiscent of a moonlit beach night.

Bedroom Retreat: Beach-Inspired Bedroom Basics

Your bedroom should feel like a personal beach retreat. To evoke that serene coastal escape:

  • Dress your windows with breezy, lightweight curtains in muted beach tones.
  • Opt for coastal-themed bedding; think nautical stripes or patterns with shells and starfish.
  • Wooden or wicker furniture pieces will further emphasize the beachside living experience.

Turn your bathroom into a coastal haven with these Friendship Creek essentials:

  • Invest in plush towels in shades reminiscent of the ocean, like turquoise or seafoam green.
  • Decorate with beach-inspired pieces such as sea glass containers, coral motifs or a decorative boat oar.

Personal Touches: Decor and Personalization

To infuse your personal touch with the coastal vibe:

  • Adorn your spaces with seashell decorations, maybe even some you’ve collected yourself.
  • Beach-themed wall art, capturing sunsets or serene shorelines, will tie rooms together.
  • Opt for a soft pastel color palette to paint your walls or choose accents reminiscent of the subtle tones of beach sands and skies.

Outdoor Living: Embracing the Bethany Beach Lifestyle

Outdoor spaces are pivotal in coastal homes. Here’s how you can make the most of them:

  • Invest in comfortable outdoor seating, ideally in materials resistant to the salty air.
  • Beach-inspired patio decor, such as hammocks or tiki torches, will elevate the coastal ambiance.
  • Always have a beach-ready kit, including beach chairs, sun hats and maybe even a surfboard!
  • Don’t forget your clubs. There are some great golf courses in the Bethany Beach area

Utility and Maintenance: Essential Tools for Home Care

Maintaining your beautiful coastal home is crucial. For smooth sailing:

  • Have a basic toolkit on hand, ensuring it includes rust-resistant tools due to the salty air.
  • A pressure washer might be a good investment for outdoor areas exposed to the coastal elements.
  • Moisture absorbers placed in strategic spots can help combat the humidity typical of coastal regions.
