Driftwood decor is a go-to choice when designers want to bring a coastal look into a home, whether it's on the water or not. It can be as simple as gathering one big piece or multiple pieces that catch your eye on nature strolls. A large piece also can fill a section of your bookshelf, which saves even more money on decor.

Although the cabinets in this modern rustic kitchen were custom made, architect Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta says there’s a key space-planning tip here. Depending on your kitchen layout, use the space above your windows for storage that you don’t need every day. Floating reclaimed wood shelves would well work in these spaces and can be found at home decor stores, for example.
