As one of the most beloved coastal mammals, Manatees are gentle giants that are commonly used for adding unique flair to coastal home décor. These creatures were once endangered and in the 1970’s estimated to number in the hundreds. However, in 2017 their U.S. federal classification was changed to “threatened,” after their population grew to approximately 6000 in Florida waters. They are truly a success story of wildlife conservation.

Manatees are mostly found in Florida, Mexico, the Caribbean Islands, eastern Central America, and northeastern South America. They prefer warm water above 68 degrees Fahrenheit. During the summer months, these incredible marine mammals can venture as far north as the mid-Atlantic and as far west as Texas.

You may be surprised to learn that manatees generally grow as long as 9 to 12 feet and weigh up to 1300 pounds, on average. Believe it or not, they can sometimes be found kissing each other when they meet. Manatees have the ability to survive in salt, fresh, and brackish water and find their food sources in shallow bodies of water like lagoons, rivers, and mangroves.

Unique Coastal Cabinet Knobs Inspired by the West Indian Manatee

Sea Life Cabinets Knobs offers a series of handcrafted, coastal cabinet knobs modeled after the West Indian Manatee. These are perfect coastal home accessories. Available in medium and small sizes and cast of solid pewter with a brushed nickel finish, these products are hand finished and premium quality cabinet hardware.

The knobs come in a single post design with brass ferrules to ensure lifetime durability.

You can expect the medium size manatee to be 2 3/8” long and 1.25” tall and sculpted in a very round 3-dimensional design. These manatee designs are available in left and right facing models.

If you’d like something a bit smaller, opt for the small size manatee cabinet knob. It’s 2” wide by 7/8” tall and also available in matching left and right facing knobs to ensure symmetry in design with kitchen and bathroom cabinets with 2 doors.
