The rugs reviewed above will serve a variety of purposes in various sizes and colors.  The main purpose that these welcome door mats will serve is to give you more of what you are at a lake house for: time.


You can achieve a relative and healthy amount of cleanliness by stopping dirt and debris at the door.  They are mats that can be picked up and shaken to remove stones, sand, dirt and twigs that otherwise would find its way into the living areas of your lake house. 


Not all of it will be stopped, and that is not the point.  Part of the atmosphere and experience of a lake house is the bits and pieces of the outdoor that are inside. 


You want the items in your lake house, welcome mats included, that will work for you, not another item that requires maintenance and care.  We know that we can’t eliminate all upkeep, that is not realistic, but we do want to minimize the time spent doing so.


The time away at a lake house is precious, and if a welcome mat at the entry doors help keep the debris where we can fling it back where it came from, then it is a good item to have at the doors. 


In thinking of the variety of colors of door mats, my favorite in any of the selection of welcome mats for a lake house would be a darker brown.  On this color, dirt would be less visible and if I can’t see it, it doesn’t exist!

Color Schemes

There are many different color schemes for lake houses.  You can choose your favorite in order to make an extra impact that will combine with the overall scenery of your lake house environment. The best color schemes to choose for lake houses in particular would be autumn colors, greens, browns, and blues.

Autumn colors (yellows, oranges, golds etc.) will accentuate the fall foliage depending on the region your lake house is in, greens will accentuate the vegetation surrounding your lake house, browns will give off an earthy accent, and blues will place emphasis upon the sky and lake.

You do not have to be limited to these colors, but these are the colors that will work best to give your lake house a calm and welcoming vibe.

Add Your Personal Touch to the Design

Make your lake house unique by including your own personal decorations and accessories. This can include family photos, items from your personal collection, or a keepsake. Adding something to your home that has a personal appeal to you can help you connect with your lake house and display what is important and unique to you.

Emphasize the View from the Inside

The view that you will be able to experience from inside of your lake house is one of the most essential features to focus on. You should be able to clearly see and admire the lake and  vegetation that surrounds your house.

Make good use of areas in which you can install windows and prevent furniture, draperies, or other obstacles from obstructing your view of the outside so you can have the best view possible.


You will want the flooring of your lake house to compliment the type of lake house you are living in. For example, wood flooring would work perfectly well for mountain cabin style or country style lake houses, while vinyl or marble may look amazing in modern lake houses.

The type of flooring you choose to install will make an impact on the overall authentic or natural appearance of your lake house and can greatly accentuate the overall design of the house.


The lighting inside of your lake house will contribute to the overall vibe, and there are many different lighting combinations that you can utilize for any type of lake house. Adding draperies to places such as any windows inside the master bedroom or other areas of the house can help you control the amount of natural lighting that area can receive at any given moment.

Country style lake homes may look best with old-fashioned wheel or barrel lighting fixtures while mission style lighting may suit rustic style lake houses.


Add some stylish and high quality chairs and sofas to your living room area to give yourself and your guests a nice place to sit and relax. The seating areas should be durable enough to where you will not have to spend as much time worrying about the upkeep factory, so you may instead focus on relaxation and overall enjoyment.

Make sure that your seating matches and accentuates the color schemes of the area you place them in and that you have enough seating areas to accommodate for a crowd of people if you plan to throw parties for your friends and family at your lake house.


You can choose furniture to place into your house based on the interior design or the color scheme you have chosen to implement. Wood furniture works marvelously with most types of lake house and can work to accentuate the rustic appearance of your own house. You can also add your own personal touch to your furniture selection to give off your own unique vibe.


Update your lake house depending on the type of existing architecture so you will have an easier time of maintaining the quality and functionality of your house. You can work with the architecture by giving the floors or walls a refinish to make them look more modern, and you can utilize the placement of your furniture accordingly in order to further accentuate the architecture.

You can always hire a professional to help you with additional details of your home if you need advice or if you need to renovate your home.

Make the Master Bedroom Soothing

Your master bedroom will be one of the most soothing areas of your lake house, and you can make it more comfortable by utilizing calm color patterns and furniture. You can also use linen draperies to add an extra level of privacy and light filtration in order to give you a deeper sense of security. Grey and white palettes tend to be the most soothing color schemes to use in a master suite.


Make the best use of your accessories and decorations in order to put your personal touch into making your lake house more comforting to you and your guests. Lake houses are meant to be soothing and connect you with nature. The right combination of furniture, lighting, and overall interior design will bring you closer to nature than ever before.

Nautical Décor Ideas for Your Lake House: Cape Town Inspired

It’s impossible not to feel relaxed with a calming nautical design around you, especially when you take Cape Town for your inspiration. Of course, it helps that the nautical option will never go out of fashion. This means that once you’ve got it decorated, you can kick back and relax. You don’t need to obsess about changing everything either: we’ll show you can use nautical décor ideas for your lake house easily.

What is Nautical Décor?

Using simple elements such as stripes, anchors, and other maritime features, nautical interior design recreates the feeling of the ocean. Natural textiles and different types of furniture will add this style to any room, meaning that you can do lake house decoration Cape Town style anywhere.

What exactly should you be looking for with nautical décor, though? Well, you really only need some features that are characteristic of the ocean with some good decorative elements. Try out nautical stripes for a striped blue pattern on your window treatments, rugs, or any other coverings. Keep the colors to a minimum with just a little bit of red to offset the blue.

Sea creatures and nautical maps are huge parts of nautical décor too. You’ll love having starfish around your home for just a touch of the elegant seaside without it being overwhelming. Adding a map along the wall and nautical stars near the window give your room that feeling of adventure only attained on the open water.

Just remember not to go overboard on any of your little decorative elements. You don’t need to have a sea of starfish in your room. In fact, there can definitely be too many elements all mixed together, so keep it simple. A good rule of thumb is to use strong colors like white and blue with some pale pink highlights, and add only a few decorative elements for that pop of nautical style.

Nautical Décor Ideas for Lake House

You have chosen the perfect starfish to match the blue and white curtains. Your furniture has been selected and you have made sure it is made from good natural textiles. Now comes the time to decorate more fully and put all these elements together.

Framed Starfish

Starfish can literally go anywhere in your home to add that nautical element that you’re looking for. If you have a large selection mix them in a frame with your sand dollars and shells. Paint the frame white and outline with starfish for a little bit of ocean fun at an extremely affordable price.

Let’s Talk about Shells

Starfish and shells: two of the best elements for any nautical design. Whether purchased at a store or found walking along the beach, shells are extremely versatile. Just wash your shells free of sand and you can simply place them around the room.

Use any conch shells you found as paperweights, and fill a bottle or cute jar with smaller shells. You can even use some glue with medium-sized shells to make them into magnets or to secure them to your shelves. If you prefer to keep your coffee tables free of clutter, shells are easy to hang up as well.

Decorative Elements

Don’t forget about the regular decorative elements in your home, like the curtains. Drape your curtains to keep your room looking open and airy. Just think of how those light curtains will flow in the breeze, and how they’ll look with the sunlight shining through them.

You can add a few floor rugs also, especially to soften any of the hardwood floors in your home. Rugs come in all materials and designs to fit your taste, whether that’s full of color or more natural earth tones. 

Finally, think about your furniture. Anything white-stained will imitate driftwood and emphasize the coastal appearance in your home. With the wood and minimal colors, you can create a more casual and relaxed atmosphere.

Painting like a Pro

Beach elements are great, but you can also make a few of your decorative pieces yourself. This is a great way to relax with the family while you’re still decorating the beach house.

Don’t worry if you’re not a painting master either. Separate your canvas with some painter’s tape to start. Brush along the top portion with sunset colors and the bottom with various blues to imitate the ocean. The point isn’t to paint a Picaso, but to create a fun DIY piece to match your home..

To the Dollar Store

You don’t need to spend a lot of money to get a great nautical decoration for your lake house. Honestly, you can find a lot of great things at the dollar store. Just pick up a few candle vases, tissue paper and seashells. Glue a few pieces of tissue paper around the candle vase, fill it with seashells and a candle, then light and enjoy your nautical lighting.


You don't need to get those ugly plastic crates from the store to keep all of your items contained. You can paint your crates yourself—just pick up a wooden crate and some blue or white paint. Paint the crate white and add a blue anchor design for that nautical look. When it's all dry, you can sand the paint a little to add that distressed look too.


You don't have to plaster a menagerie of seashells on your home to make it nautical. There are actually many great ideas that you can apply to your home to make it both practical and nautical at the same time. Paint your cabinets, add some sheer curtains, and have a little fun with your family, adding those decorative elements so that you can enjoy your beach house to its fullest.
