Who said surfboards are only for extreme water sport enthusiasts? They look the most stunning when incorporated into a home’s decor, regardless of whether that home is situated on the coast or not. In fact, you don’t even need to have an overly beachy or nautical theme going on in any room to make it work either.
You can get surfboards in so many different colors and designs, the possibilities for using them to accentuate a room really are endless! If you find that the ocean may be calling your name for your next decorating project, here are a few surf-worthy ideas to inspire you.
HALLWAY FOCAL POINT
The surfboards in the hallway can reinforce your calling for the ocean through the artwork. It’s just the thing to serve as an exclamation point in what could otherwise be a nonevent space.
A bright colored surfboard can reflects you great love for your love with the ocean, and acts as a center stage in the hall.
Casually displaying a surfboard in a living room creates a focal point that directs eyes where you want them to go. Simply leaning the board against the wall makes it looks relaxed and natural.
Nothing gives your home an instantly chill vibe like sticking a longboard right next to your front door.
Ceilings offer extra space to show off a room’s personality without taking up valuable square footage elsewhere. Hanging multiple cleverly placed surfboards can also add depth to the area.
Move the surfboard from the ocean and let it stake a spot as a decorative design piece on your bedroom. Minimalist and streamlined.
Being relatively flat, sturdy and smooth, surfboards make for a brilliant countertop. Their narrow dimensions also make them especially suitable for a bar-top.
You went, you surfed, and you conquered! A custom shower using a surfboard as a mount for the plumbing fixtures will be a refreshing sight after a long morning hanging ten.
DRESS UP WALLS
Instead of artwork, a wall-mounted surfboard is a fun and unexpected way to liven up bare white walls. This brightly hued board is the perfect complement.
BIG KAHUNA LIGHTING
Similar to the surfboard-as-shower idea, drilling some holes and adding bulbs can transform an old shorty into a custom light fixture.
This colorful, Mermaid Ocean printed longboard makes a fun art piece propped in any room. Who knew surfboard fit well in fashionably bold bathroom?
Added some surf culture to the bedroom through color choice and decor. Articulated every detail from oceanic palette, to the hand-painted sunset on the surfboard and the gallery wall above the bed.
If you’re feeling creative, there are lots of different things you can use in place of an actual coffee table, but did you ever think a surfboard would look this good?
One of the great things about using surfboards is you can follow so many different color palettes. The surf culture hype is nothing new, but its introduction into interior design is. Now, everywhere we look, we’re seeing surfboards in home decor.
