Making Your Boat a Home

You have just purchased a boat or you are looking to remodel your old one and you want to find a way to make it more like a home on water. Having traveled all over the world, I know what it feels like to be on the open water for long periods of time. The last thing that you want is your “new home” to be uncomfortable. You want to make sure that you are gearing up your new home with all of the comforts of home. That way, when you are on the open sea, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. Here are some of the top design tips for utilizing space, creating comfort, and emitting style:

  • Creating storage space

When you are decorating your boat, you want to make sure that you utilize every square inch of space. It is essential to find ways to store the things that you need. This can be done by incorporating some furniture and other items that incorporate storage in them. This additional space will allow you to store more things without the clutter. Clutter-free space is comforting and when everything has its place, you will feel more at ease.

  • Minimalize

Less is more on a boat. Try not to get things that are overly complicated, bulky, and hard to secure. Remember, the water is not always going to be calm, and therefore, it makes more sense not to have a bunch of things that can fall all over the place.

  • Warmth is key

Wool is a perfect fabric for your boat. It provides warmth when it is cold and it provides cooling properties when it is hot. It can be water resistant and durable. It will provide you with comfort and security. Choose a nice wool comforter for your bed and you will be able to sleep comfortable.

  • Adding shelving

One great way to utilize space on your boat is to add shelving units that are built with a front guard to hold things in place. Enclosed shelving is idea for keeping things in their place. It is a great way to hold up your toothpaste, body wash, medicines, and other toiletries from flying around. Plus, it will save space in the drawers and other compartments for other things.  It will also be essential in the kitchen to hold your spices and canned goods.

  • Hanging baskets

When you are looking to add more storage space, you can add hanging baskets around the cabin. They are great for holding things and can sustain movement from the water. They will rock back and forth nicely as the boat collides with the waves.

Finding secure places for all of your things is essential in creating comfort on your boat. You want to have the things that you need, when you need them. These tips will help you find a place for all of your things, so you can sail away into the sunset in comfort and style.
