If living out at sea isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry! There are a number of ways you can have a nautical house without having to paint navy stripes in the bathroom or throwing bread outside to attract seagulls. We went voyaging for some ways to bring boat themes indoors and the results were amazing and unique.
If you can’t stand the thought of being away from your boat, just plonk it right in the middle of the living room. This very smart and unique situation sees the boat screwed in and hanging form the ceiling, meaning that anyone lying in there will feel as though they’re floating along easily.
If you like a good soak, this ceramic boat bath is a very simple design executed perfectly. It sadly only has enough for one though so you’ll be going on an deep soak expedition on your own.
Captain of the ship and the kitchen? Then why not make sure everyone knows by transforming your worktop and breakfast bar in to a fake yacht front. It brings a perfect excuse to eat on deck and not be worried about the prospect of having to clean off bird dirt.
You’ll often see this type of curtain in private cabanas in hotel pools, but now the sail type cover is becoming a popular feature of many contemporary homes. It provides good shelter from wind and rain, without blowing you off course.
And if you want your kitchen to have a fully incorporated boat façade , this boat sail doubles as counter light.
This is something of a cheat but the simplest way to bring a nautical theme to any room: prop up a porthole. As you can see in this bedroom, the window doesn’t even show you the other side of the wall. It’s a simple decoration that adds a bit of character to the room without being overbearing.
