Decorating Your Dock. Installing a boat dock is just the first step to make your waterfront property look beautiful, stunning, and magical. The second step is to decorate your boat dock. You want your boat dock to stand out just as much as you want your home by the lake to grab the attention of curious onlookers.
We wanted to give you some ideas on how you can decorate your boat. Part 1 will be followed by Part 2. Get a head start on decorating your boat dock by choosing one or more ideas that interest you.
1. Custom Accent Lights Lighting Up Your Boat Dock
You can add custom accent lighting to your boat dock. When the sun disappears and signals the moon to come out, the lights will come on. We have seen boat docks with light bulbs and lanterns and, trust us, it never looks good. Custom accent lighting will not dull the appearance of your boat dock. It will enhance it. You can find several beautiful lighting options such as low LED lights, hanging lights, and lights enclosed in glass.
2. Steps Leading into the Water
Would you rather haul yourself up from the water to get on your boat dock, or would you rather have steps allowing you to get in and out of the water easily? If you are smart, you will pick the latter option. Without steps, there is a chance you can lose your balance. If you have small children, having a set of steps will start looking like an even better idea than before.
You do not want your little ones to struggle to get on the boat dock from the boat. If you want, you can even add underwater lights under the steps. It would further enhance the appeal of your boat dock, especially at night.
3. Dock Hammock for Ultimate Relaxation
You can add a dock hammock to your boat dock. When you feel like relaxing outdoors on your boat dock, you can lay down in the hammock. You can take a nap or just do some light reading as the cool breeze caresses your skin.
If you host parties on your boat dock, your hammock will serve an extra seating space. The combination of accent lights and a hammock will make relaxing on your boat dock at an even more memorable experience.
4. Pontoon Table for Picnics
A boat dock serves as your very own personal space for having picnics by the lake. If you and your family enjoy picnics outdoors, consider planning one on your boat dock. You can add a pontoon table on the boat dock for picnics. To create a pontoon table, replace its legs with plastic barrels. For people with floating docks, eating while gently swaying back and forth in the water will make eating outdoors one of your favorite things.
5. Kayak and Canoe Holders
Canoe docks and kayak docks need canoe and kayak holders. If your choice of watercraft is a canoe or kayak, you will benefit from adding the holders to your boat dock. You can keep the boats in them when they are not in use. They will keep your boats safe from unexpected circumstances. You will also no longer have to take your canoe or kayak to the lake when you feel kayaking or canoeing.
