6 things to know before buying linen for your yacht

It may seem like a finishing touch but choosing the right linen for your yacht can make or break your interior design aesthetic.

The design of a yacht is not the same as the design of a house. In a yacht, even if it’s a very large one, you have limitations with the space and environment and there are things you try to achieve with a yacht that you don’t think about in a house. With a house you can decide to buy your linen at the very end but in a yacht you should integrate all the elements, including decorative things like linen, at the very beginning of the process.

You need to have a 360-degree approach when designing a yacht’s interior space and to do that the interior designer needs to have all suppliers and brands involved as soon as possible.
