Nautical Shower Curtains
Choosing a fish shower curtain is just one option for your beach decor.
You might like a tropical shower curtain, with palm trees and bright vivid colors that reflect the colors of tropical flowers and tropical fish. Or perhaps you prefer a beach shower curtain. It might have beach umbrellas, flip flops and sandy beaches, in addition to pictures of fish in the sea.
On the other hand, you might prefer a strictly nautical décor, with a nautical shower curtain that has crisp blue colors and colorful ocean fish.
A Fish is not just a Fish!
As you can see, a fish is not always just a fish. If you want to use fish in your décor, you still need to further define exactly what kind of décor you would like.
After you decide, the rest is easy. You simply find bath accessories that will complement your shower curtain and find accents for your theme.
This simple process will work for you, no matter what kind of home you have—a contemporary timber frame beach house, a cozy seaside cottage, or a fishing lodge by a lake!
A Lofty Lighthouse in the Bath
Whether you live in a secluded log cabin in the woods, or a contemporary timber frame home by the sea, a lighthouse bath can be complementary to your other home furnishings.
Lighthouses are very popular in home decor, for several reasons.
First, they are beautiful, standing out on the water. Many people love (and collect) lighthouses simply because of their beauty!
Second, lighthouses are a symbol of safety and security. They guide ships and boats into a harbor, and they warn ships of dangerous shoals and rocks under the water. They protect us from danger.
Lighthouses are also a beacon of hope, and they have become symbolic of hope. They have religious undertones, as they represent the hope given to us by Christ.
So, no matter where you live, if you happen to be one of the many people who love lighthouses, why not consider outfitting your bath with a beautiful lighthouse shower curtain and lighthouse accessories?
Tips for Choosing Lighthouse Shower Curtains
Waterfront decorating can be lots of fun! And there are many high quality nautical home décor furnishings on the market.
- Colors – Nautical home décor furnishings are often patterned after traditional ships and boats. You often see colors like navy, white and blues like the ocean.
- Motifs – And the motifs used in nautical décor also reflect classic ships and their quarters. You may see anchors, helms (the ship’s wheel or steering wheel), fish and star fish, seashells, ships, boats or sailboats, lighthouses and even old salty sailors (or pirates).
- Fabrics – Fabrics used in nautical décor have clean patterns. You may see plain fabric with appliqued motifs or clean navy (or blue) and white stripes. And no lacy frills or ruffles for a classic nautical décor in your beach home.
Since the nautical shower curtain in your beach cottage bath is the largest and most prominent feature of your bathroom, choose a beach shower curtain that you really like. And then build the rest of the room around it.
Select colors that blend with the shower curtain and motifs that reflect its theme to give your bath the look that you want!
So, if you are decorating a cabin by the shore and you want to use a nautical décor, keep your fabrics and patterns simple, your lines clean, your colors ocean-like and your motifs should reflect the ocean, its ships and boats and its sea creatures!
