The coastal architectural style home, or "beach house style," embodies the relaxed and breezy atmosphere of coastal living. This design aesthetic draws inspiration from beachfront and seaside settings, capturing the essence of the ocean, sand, and sky. Coastal style homes are characterized by light and airy interiors, with a palette of soft blues, sandy neutrals, and white, evoking the ocean and shore.
Coastal style may feature distinct design elements tailored to withstand coastal challenges and celebrate the beauty of waterfront living. Pitched or gabled roofs to efficiently shed wind and rain, while open floor plans and large windows maximise natural light and scenic views.
These homes often have outdoor living spaces, such as decks and balconies, for enjoying the sea breeze. Coastal architectural style combines practicality with aesthetics, creating a unique and inviting retreat that captures the essence of coastal living.

Choosing the right product
Avoiding corrosion is the biggest challenge when building in coastal environments. Choosing the right materials to protect the integrity of the build and ensuring the home looks beautiful for years to come is critical.
While LYSAGHT(R) roofing, walling and guttering shaped from COLORBOND® steel will meet the performance needs of homes built in most locations, more demanding coastal environments require materials with a greater level of corrosion protection.
