Deciding how to decorate a boat will largely depend on your own likes and dislikes. Every boat, big or small, can be decorated to some extent. Some might only be able to be decorated on the exterior, while others might have a cabin or living quarters that can be decorated. Your boat decorating decisions will also depend on your budget.
Things you'll need:
- Boat wrap
- Vinyl or printed graphics
- Colorful cushions
- Paint or Graphics. The exterior of the boat is important in that everyone will see it. A rapidly growing trend in the boat decorating world is the wrap. A boat wrap is a large printed graphic that completely or mostly covers the outside of the boat. Almost anything can be decorated with a wrap. As long as you have it done by a good company, your boat will be sure to get lots of looks and compliments from passers by. A wrap might be too complex or expensive. If that's the case, decorating the exterior of the boat can be as simple as a paint job, striping or small vinyl or printed graphics. The colors and graphics you choose will depend upon your personal preferences and budget.
- Other Exterior Decorations. There are a number of ways to decorate the deck of the boat. Boats can be made with different colored metal accessories. You could buy different color or style cushions for any seats on the boat. There are a number of small decorations for boats. One of the most common being flags, whether it's a pirate flag or flags with meanings, such as the fish flags. Some boats also have colored carpeting on the deck which is another way you can spice up the decorations on a boat.
- Interior Decorations. Boats provide much more options for decorating when they have an interior cabin. The interior can be decorated much like a room would be. One of the key things to keep in mind is space. Most living quarters on boats are small and cramped and thus need as much functional furniture as possible. Unless, of course, you're lucky enough to own a huge yacht. When decorating the interior of the boat, you'll want to put in as much of your personal style as possible. It's a place where you'll be spending your time and you want to be able to enjoy it. Most boats are decorated with a nautical theme in mind, but that is up to you.
