We all have a different style or preference when it comes to our homes, and if you’re anything like the Swedish and love a good hygge moment, then you’ll love the rustic style decor. Here are some tips to give your home that rustic look.
Choose Wood For Tables
One of the best ways to give your home that rustic look is to incorporate as much as wood as possible. So choose wood as a material for your dining table, side cupboards, and office desk. It’s always good to your dining table some sort of sealant or varnish so that it doesn’t easily scratch or stain. You can get this from most general hardware stores, and a quick google search should talk you through how to do it. You could even go to the extent of doing reclaimed wood walls, or even just on the one to make it a feature wall.
Install A Fireplace
If you’re lucky to have an open fire that’s fully functional with exposed brickwork, then you’re sorted. However, there are ways to cheat this style, and it doesn’t even have to be a real fire. There are somewhere you can just have a fake fire that glows using lighting, or if you want the real thing, then you can get a log burner. Just make sure you’ve got the accessibility to create a chimney for the smoke to get out!
Soft furnishings are a great way of making a space feel super cozy, and if you’re looking for a rustic style, then you’ll want something like a quilted throw to decorate your home. These would be great on the couch or displayed over your bed, and they’ll come in a variety of styles. From patchwork to the more elegant designs, these are a must-have in any rustic home.
Storage for the home keeps everything organized, and there’s now plenty of styles and options to choose from, rather than your standard wall or floor shelf. The most popular to have recently appeared in the home interior section of stores is ladder shelving. They look like ladders, but they’re for decorative purposes only. Display a few potted plants, maybe a photo frame or two and not to mention your favorite books, DVDs and CDs.
Fairy Light It Up
It’s true that something as simple as fairy lights can transform a room. Fairy lights are really cheap to buy, and they can come in a variety of lengths which you can use to decorate your home. Get creative by placing them in glass jars or lining your vanity table mirror with them. If you have beams, you can wrap these around them, turn off the main lights and have pretty warm stars above you.
The rustic style is certainly here to stay, and it’s the perfect home design that will make your home look inviting and relaxing. So get those fairy lights, quilted throws and stick on the fireplace to watch a good movie.
