Nautical clock

Sometimes, you just get bored the same old type of home decor — and with good reason. There’s only so much that you can get out of the typical beige furniture and cream-colored walls. It’s no wonder that only one out of five Americans feel happy with their home decorations, and 14% reported that their furnishings made them feel “gloomy”. In recent years, people have started turning away from traditional home furnishings, and started looking towards nautical home decor. Nautical home decor is certainly out of the ordinary, but it’s existed for much longer than some might think. Typically, pirate decor and other types of nautical decorations have been associated with children’s rooms. But now, people are applying nautical decorations throughout the home. Of course, nautical decor isn’t just for the home — it’s also been frequently used as a theme for things like bed and breakfasts and inns. Nautical home decor doesn’t have to be silly or over the top — unless you want it to be. Nor should you feel as if you have to look everywhere for nautical decor. There are plenty of different options for those who want to decorate their homes or businesses with a nautical theme. Let’s take a look at them.

1. Life Preserver Decor

Of all the different types of nautical home decor, life preservers are perhaps the most recognizable, and the easiest to apply to different types of the home. You shouldn’t so much look at this type of decor as being made up of real life preservers — because they very often aren’t. Rather, they’re just parts of furniture. It’s estimated that 63% of people over the age of 55 buy new furniture. Some people even take time off to buy new furniture. Life preservers can be used in many different parts of the home. For some, they’re extraneous decorations that can be hanged on the wall. Others look for pillows that look like life preservers, or even seek out life preservers to act as pillows themselves on sofas — though this might not be the most comfortable option. Again, it’s important to note that buying nautical home decor doesn’t necessarily mean buying actual, usable items and converting them into home decor. Rather, you should look for a company that specializes in nautical home decor, and look for what they have to offer. That way, you’ll have something that looks good, and if need be, is comfortable.

2. Nautical Art

Lots of art is themed around the sea, from paintings to sculptures. You may like the idea of a painting that depicts a lighthouse, or one that is themed around the waves. On the other hand, you might want to choose a small sculpture of a sea creature, like a dolphin or whale. Either one is acceptable; it all depends on your personal taste. Of course, some people prefer works of art that were actually made from oceanic items, like sand or driftwood. Driftwood has long been used for sculpting and carving. Some people also choose to have driftwood covered with a preservative, which keeps it in its original shape, while adding an extra shine. Some companies specialize in producing ocean-related art to add to a home’s nautical theme. No matter what, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to buy good art; you can get a great piece at a very affordable price, from the right company.

3. Nautical Wheels

Nautical wheels are often themed or modeled after a ship’s wheel — yes, the same kind of wheel that sailors steer with. Many people like to have wheels hanging on their walls, much like they would hang art — and much like what we mentioned in regards to life preservers earlier. A nautical wheel is a bold statement in terms of decor, and it might not be for everyone. But it certainly is a great way of expressing your personality!
