Beach Condo Reno

Beach Condo Kichen Reno

I have a choice between deep cherry/merlot color cabinets and cinnamon
cabinets for our beach condo as they are avail. at an affordable price. How do I " beachy" them up ? I need to use tile floors as well. What suggestions do any of you have for wall and tile color, countertops, backsplash? The kichen is open to the family room.
Thanks

I would go with the cherry cabinets, keep the tile light, sisal rugs, backsplash nice light creamy color and go with sand and water colors

Thank you. What about white subway tile backsplash and beige floor tile? Thanks again

First of all: which one do you prefer if you wouldn't want to 'beachy it up'? And which one matches the rest of your furniture best?

If it were me and I had to choose between the two, I'd go for the lightest colour, because I associate beach with light driftwood, blues and greens and sand/beige colours. Chrome appliances (silvery sea waves colour).
The dining room chairs look very beach-like already. Nice!

Carolins was thinking on my wavelength. "Beachy" to me means light and bright. Cinnamon would be my choice. However, I'm digging those 80s throwback cabinets in the picture...haha. Just kidding.

Look for some shell stone tile or slabs for backsplash. It is limestone (from Texas is where I've seen it) that has shell imprints all in it. Most of the University of Texas is made of the stuff. That should help with the "Beachy" aspect.

Is the cinnamon color "orangy"?

Hmm...if Jayme's photos are like the 'real thing', I've changed my mind and would choose the darker one in stead of the lighter colour. Unless of course orangy goes really well with the rest of your furniture. I could see it work if you combine it with aqua/turquoise tiles and fabrics. While the darker one would go well with beige/sandy colours. Did that help? No... probably not, sorry ;-)

Every companies "cinnamon" is different. Most of the cinnamon cabinets I've seen are a light brown...not really orangy at all.

My posts were not meant to depict the cabinets in question....some of the cinnamon cabinets I have seen were orangish toned.
