To give a room a unique nautical touch, consider using boat cleats for hardware and hooks!

Nautical boat cleats are mostly used to tie a boat to a dock. This beautiful Nautical Bathroom shows the cleats off on its vanity! Via My Home Ideas.

Nice brass boat cleats are used as wall hooks in a Nordic Nautical Cottage.

And this creative solution comes from Laurie of Laurie's Projects who decorated her sons bathroom with nautical in mind.

You might remember this staircase, featured on here. A clever use of nautical boat cleats and rope.

Where to shop for nautical boat cleats? Pottery Barn sells Nautical Cleats. Aero Home has Cast Iron Cleats. Go to your local marine supply store if you live coastal, find nautical boat cleats online in stores such as West Marine and check out Ebay for Boat Cleats and Dock Cleats.

Love that guest bathroom and the creative twist on cabinet pulls! This look definitely fits in the "nautical" category of my coastal style post. Check it out if you have the chance.

I love the roped staircase. You can also do that outside with your patio or walkway.

Oops! There goes part of the post I was going to do for you. LOL! I have had one of these on my door to the bathroom. It's my door handle. ;-)

Wow! Love these... especially used as cabinet handles!

Della said...

Oh I wish I could think of somewhere to put some of these! Maybe poolside to hang towels on?! I like them, and I'm wanting some!

What a great idea, I never thought of these for things like that!

Thank you for looking at those pretty coastal things for us
Have a good week end

Be still my heart! I want them everywhere!

Julie @ followyourheartwoodworking said...

I don't want to be a party pooper because I think the handles are great but... some with rope would not pass safety standards. Please be careful, especially if you have young children in the house.

I was going to use these in our half bath for towels but then couldn't find any at reasonable prices. I needed 6. I would love to add a couple somewhere, love the look.

Tybee Dreaming said...

This is what I'm doing in my kitchen using the cleats as door handles. I like the idea hanging the TP roll, so I will use that idea to hang paper towels instead.

Given that I have been around boats since I was a toddler the best to go to a marine store. Or a nautical salvage yard.

Personally my favorite is pop up cleats. You simply touch them and they pop up and then push them down so the collapse.

These are some awesome ideas, I just love boat cleats, especially the galvanized ones! ~Lili
