In order to get the authentic Canadian cottage experience you need a cozy retreat. The interior design of a cottage should mirror the slow paced, carefree cottage lifestyle. Here are some interior design tips to help you create that classic cottage look that everyone dreams of!
Imagine the kids come in from the beach and place their sandy feet right on the couch! Being a cottage owner myself, I know the headache this causes any parent. It didn’t matter how many times we vacuumed the couches, they were still dirty and full of sand. A few years ago we did a cottage renovation and decided to replace our couches with slipcover furniture. This is the only thing I would recommend now to a cottage owner! Slipcover furniture is extremely easy to clean making it kid-friendly. They come in so many different colors, fabrics, and styles so it’s easy to find one that matches your cottage interior.
Our cozy cottages can leave us limited on storage space, especially when we have guests. Putting in extra shelving units allows you to optimize your wall space. If you don’t have exposed wood beams in your cottage, consider adding a rustic wooden shelving unit to add warmth to your room. The wooden texture in a cottage makes it feel more inviting.
Bring coastal living indoors by creating a nautical themed space. Blue and white hues, striped patterns, and boating decor are all essential in creating this classic cottage look. Get inspired with these nautical decor ideas to easily transform any room in your cottage.
