Nautical Wallpaper a Comparison of Ocean and Sea Wallpapers

    Submitted by Martin on Tue, 04/25/2017 - 23:20

    Nautical wallpaper, we look at some of the best and compare what you can buy online to make your mermaid home more like the ocean.

    Below there are a number of wall papers we have found on amazon, we have only tested one of them as we only needed one room decorating. We have gone with a nautical theme in our small shower room, with one of the walls being a feature wall and the rest of the bathroom being painting in white and the skirting in a very light duck egg blue.

    Why nautical wallpaper? Well, this covers an expanse of ocean themes, from boats, to nautical maps, to sealife, the seaside and much more. With this look, whether you live near the sea or not, you can give a room an ocean upgrade.

    Feature Wall

    One of the best ways to approach something as dramatic as nautical wallpaper is to use it as a feature wall rather than putting it up on every wall in the room that you are decorating. Why is this? All the designs have a lot going on with them, placing it on one big wall in the room and paiting the others with a neutral tone will help tremendously liven up the room, theme it and at the same time, not make it too messy and distracting.

    Different Nautical Wallpapers

    Below we have muted tones in the sailboat and nautical atlas map wallpapers and some colourful wallpapers, like the beach huts border and wallpaper.

    The cream, grey and blue atlases we have added would look the best in your own bedroom or a bathroom, depending on what sort of style you already have in your home. The beach huts could work great in a childs bedroom as a border or even in a brighter, more seaside themed bathroom, this includes the full beach huts wallpaper too.

    Splashproof Wallpaper

    We have added a couple of splash proof wallpaper designs below, this is a great property of some of the wallpapers, especially if you will be hanging in your bathroom, toilet or shower room.

    As well, if you are using in a childs bedroom, having the option to wipe off any mess that gets on the wall is a great feature.

    How To Hang Nautical Wallpaper

    With all of the nautical wallpaper designs below, other than the border, you will require to line up the pattern, which is repeated on all of them. Lining up the pattern is not too hard, as we found out when we tested the driftwood wallpaper, but the important thing is to make sure you hang the first sheet properly.

    The key to hanging your first sheet correctly and perfectly vertical, is to use a plum line. This can be some string or wire and put a weight on the bottom of it. We just used masking tape to hold it at the top of the wall and celotaped a pebble from a beach to the bottom.

    You are hanging it from the top of you wall and letting it hang freely so that you can see a true vertical line, that is straight. Then all you have to do is line up the left or right side of your first sheet, depending on where you start with this plum line. Doing this will guarantee your wallpaper hanging will keep straight all around the room.

    So why do this? It's pretty simple, your walls may not be straight, especially in older houses. Ours is 140 years and is full of crooked lines. So make sure your nautical wallpaper pattern and ocean themed wallpaper lines up with the previous paper and not the wall. Once you have added a few sheets of wallpaper, you will see how straight your walls edges are.

    A great looking wallpaper that actually looks like driftwood. This can be hung in any room you choose, as long as it's on a flat walled surface, usually plaster and that wallpaper glue will stick to it.

    One roll will cover approximately a wall 8' x 7' foot in size, anything bigger and you will need to order more than one roll.

    Quirky and contemporary, our wonderful seaside design wallpaper features a motif of traditional beach huts in beautifully British red white and blue! This is a bright and summery design that brings colour and light to any room, but with its fun seaside theme and lively palette we think this would be the perfect choice for bathrooms or children's play rooms.

    This wallpaper would be great for any room, including a bathroom as it is fully splash proof and anti-bacterial. These are great qualities to find in a wallpaper, especially a beach hut wallpaper which would more than likely be used in a damp, moist room like a shower or bathroom.

    Nautical Sailboat Wallpaper

    A sailboat wallpaper, a simple yet stunning design which would suit most rooms in your home.
