Love the nautical home décor look, but not sure how to start turning your home into a beach paradise? Here are some tips to give you some inspiration!
Coastal Color Palette
Selecting the perfect color palette for your room will be the first step to setting the tone for the room! One way to determine a color palette is to use a photo of your favorite beach scene or nautical accessory. Using tans, browns and a spectrum of blues and greens, it will be easy to accomplish a nautical vibe!
Coastal Flooring Options
Once you have selected your color palette, you’ll want to compliment your room with the perfect floor. There are many rustic and coastal-style floors available. We recommend taking a look at our Costal Flooring Category, where we feature all of our best-selling nautical-styled floors! We offer up to 5 flooring samples completely free, delivered right to your door. If you have a beach or lake house, these vinyl floors are perfect due to their water and moisture resistance!
Accessorize Your Coastal Styled Rooms
Furniture and accessories will complete your room and pull all of the elements together! For furniture, select a light brown, tan, or white sofa and add pillows with fun patterns. Adding a colorful rug, rope art, and sun-aged looking décor, a room can be instantly transformed into a nautical-inspired paradise!

Nautical Styled Room Ideas from Bestlaminate Customers
Flooring sets the tone of any room. If you prefer contemporary or casual styles, select lighter colors. For a more rustic feel opt for white-washed, nut-rich floors like pines and oak. For a more traditional appearance, the darker, richer wood tones of mahogany provide plenty of Old World charm and grace. When deciding on the colors for your room, keep in mind that it will set the tone and character for the entire room. Like a professionally mounted picture frame, the background of a picture or a room can drastically alter its style and appearance.
When selecting the colors for your nautical room ask yourself if you will be using your existing furniture or if you will be using something new. Try to complement the color of your furniture with other elements of your room. Earth tones, such as browns and greens, have a calming effect on a room, and they blend so nicely with blues and greens. Remember, white creates a sense of elegance, and pastels are both lighthearted and calming. Before moving forward with your project, you will want to decide on the overall feel you want to create in each room.
