About The Stylists

Judges on The Block were huge fans, giving Kyal and Kara 30 out of 30 for their bathroom reno. So highly regarded are the 'Super K's', they set a record for the highest number of challenges won! Kyal (the carpenter/builder) and Kara (the designer) have completed over 35 renovation projects and are a big hit on YouTube and Instagram and have been guest designers on Channel 10’s The Living Room.

Lovers of the beach and sea, Kyal & Kara are known for creating stunning coastal-inspired spaces, spaces that are bright and breezy where nature takes centre stage. Kyal & Kara will always have a soft spot for the coastal style like their Long Jetty renovation where their coastal styling was strong as they chose Beaumonts to renovate a coastal home, click here to view their episodes.

Coastal Style Checklist

Childhood memories, collections from the seashore & beyond, coastal is the enduring beach side retreat where city stress fades away in a heartbeat. It's bright and breezy with nature taking centre stage.


  • Take colour inspiration from the beach. Think muted neutrals, crisp whites, blues, aqua and timber highlights. 


  • Choose white baths and basins with soft curves and chrome or stainless steel tapware.
  • Use natural and even textured tiles such as stone or stone look tiles, timber or concrete.
  • Use grout that matches the tile colour to keep your bathroom in harmony.
  • Make it even more spacious by running your floor tile up your walls to the ceiling.
  • Style your bathroom with timber or bamboo accessories (think stool, bath caddy and scrubbing brushes) and beautiful succulents.

Main Floor Tile

  • A stunning coastal interior is one that oozes space so create more of it by using large format tiles
  • Colour match your grout to your tiles for a seamless look and consider choosing tiles that can run from indoors, out like our Microtec range. 
  • A sandy coloured floor tile is a stunning choice like our Tile of The Year, Rock Salt in White Gold or our Aussie Made Belga White
  • Use timber look tiles in plank sizes laid in an offset pattern for a traditional look. We have some great living room & hallway ideas here to inspire you. 


  • Choose a mixture of matt and natural finishes including timber and stone.
  • Team your kitchen cabinetry with finger pull or simple timber handles.
  • Go for open timber shelves to show your seaside finds and natural-shaped crockery.
  • Choose a splashback tile in natural colour or a sea blue for a classic nod to the coast.

Furniture & Finishing Touches

  • Furnishings should be neutral in colour and layered with shades of blue. 
  • Compliment your spaces with artwork in similar hues (think ocean prints or sea life). 
  • Choose finishings in natural fibres such as jute or sisal. 
  • Don't forget to accessorize with plants! Choose palms, succulents and leafy foliage.
