Interior Design Ideas for Your Narrowboat Home

Interior Design Ideas for Your Narrowboat Home

So you’ve finally taken the plunge and bought your very own narrowboat, now you’re faced with the exciting yet daunting prospect of turning it into a home. Don’t worry, we’ve pulled together some different design ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Light and airy narrowboat interior design

Reminiscent of a modern farmhouse, the gorgeous colour of the wood compliments the white creating a light and airy space. We love the deep sink which will hold a good amount of washing up and the corner sofa at the end fits perfectly.

Eccentric and cosy narrowboat interior design ideas

If you’re a great lover of patterns and colours, bring them all together with this eccentric yet cosy style. The black and white tiles look great paired with the striped throw and floral curtains, all pulled together by the consistency of the wood.

Modern and minimalist narrowboat interior design

White and bright, this minimalistic design creates a calming atmosphere. We love the rustic wood panelling and you can be sure even in the height of winter this interior will still feel bright with the windows and lighting on the wall.

Traditional narrowboat interior design ideas

The traditional narrowboat design will never get old, so if your boat has this design on the outside, you may want to keep the theme going internally. The touch of lacy fabric on the ceiling and the paintings on the cupboards really bring it to life.

Rustic and recycled narrowboat interior design

There are many materials out there that you could recycle for use in your narrowboat, we love this example because of the misshaped wooden surface, the ‘tree trunk’ which is decorated with fairy lights and the bottles. Altogether, they’ve created a quirky and homely atmosphere.
