How To Use Decorative Oars

Oars are typically used for water-borne propulsion usually to navigate small dinghies or rafts by pushing water in the opposite direction the vessel is intended to move. They’re traditionally made of wood and the flat blade is sometimes painted at the tip. Wooden oars used for decoration have all the essential elements of a traditional oar and capture the maritime feel.

We recommend using decorative oars or the ones with signal flag blades for theme decor. We’re going to talk about three different types of oars, the traditional or classic oar, oars with hooks, and oar coat stands. We’ll give you tips on how to select and position your oars for greater appeal to achieve the desired look.

Selecting and Placing Your Oars
When selecting an oar, choose one with a tip color that will work well with the designated setting or the room’s color scheme. We recommend placing your oar on a wall at door level in a horizontal position, making sure it is straight as if you were hanging a picture. For greater impact, use a pair of oars and position the second approximately twelve inches below or above the first, with the second facing the opposite direction from the first, creating a paralell format.

Another option is to place the pair in a slightly diagonal position in a parallel format with the tips facing upward in the same direction. This diagonal arrangement offers a more casual look. In case you’re wondering, yes the two oars can be placed on two different walls opposite each other (if the walls are not too far apart) with one oar on each wall facing one another.

Some decorative oars have hooks and are designed to hang garment, hats or other items. These are also referred to as oar coat rack and are not normally placed in a parallel position and not necessarily arranged in pairs. They are rather conveniently placed horizontally or diagonally at arms’s reach for convenience based on how they will be utilized.

Now for the oars used as a coat stand; these are great, the coat stand is usually made up of three oars that stand on the floor, forming a triangle at the base and are joined at the top where the oar handles are covered together with a nicely polished metal with coat hooks all around it. The oar coat stand adds interest to a room decor.

Where Are They Used?
Decorative oars look great in living areas, a nautical themed office, bedrooms, kid’s room, cabanas, or mudroom. Oars with hooks in a kid’s room can help to keep the room tidy. The oar coat stand is very practical for the home or business lobby. Restaurants, resorts, marinas and other businesses also use decorative oars for theme decor.

Use attractive oars in your nautical design to create and enjoy a soothing ocean breeze atmosphere in your home, office, or business even if you're far away from the ocean.
