If you are remodeling your home's den and would like to create an ocean-themed environment, use the following to assist with acquiring the results that you desire. The newly updated room will provide you with the perfect space to relax after a long day or entertain guests on weekends.
Large Scale Art Prints
Purchase some large scale art prints of sand, shells, water, or any other feature that reminds you of the ocean from an art dealer or local gallery. The textured appearance of each item that is printed on one the artwork will provide the den with a captivating appearance that you or your friends may enjoy gazing at. Place each print inside a wooden frame that has been painted to match the other decor in the den. You can also secure the prints to the wall with a staple gun if you do not wish to frame them. Contact a company like Christi B Fine Art to check some out.
Aquariums That Are Filled With Tropical Fish
Set up a couple saltwater aquariums and purchase some colorful tropical fish to place inside of each habitat. If you haven't ever cared for saltwater fish before, inquire at a pet store about which types of fish can be placed together and any equipment that is needed to keep the water clean. Install lighting over each tank so that you can watch the fish during times that you would like to dim the other lights in the room. Watch the fish swim around in each tank whenever you would like to take your mind off of your problems and feel calmer.
A Colorful Lounging Area That Includes Ocean Sounds And Decor
Lay a decorative blanket that reminds you of the seaside across the back of a couch. Place colorful pillows on each end of the couch so that you will have a comfortable area to lay down when you would like to unwind after a long day. Purchase audio recordings of ocean waves or seagulls and play them on a portable stereo whenever you are resting in the den or would like to pretend that you are in an outdoor environment.
Arrange some seashells that you have collected from some of your trips to the ocean inside of decorative bowls and around the base of a candle that are displayed on a coffee table or end table in the den.
Your ocean-themed den may become one of your favorite rooms in your home to spend time in by yourself or with some of your friends when you feel like entertaining.
