Rustic Decor For Your Home


Rustic décor brings a home one step closer to nature. For sure, one step might not seem like a lot, but if you are living in a hectic city, that one step can seem like a mile. If your world is full of cell phones, computers, and various other technologies that “makes the world a better place,” coming home to a house packed with rustic décor could be a relief.

It’s important to be aware that there are many different levels of rustic decor. This can make your decision harder because there are a lot of options. You’ll want to remember that you don’t have to have the same rustic look in each room. It can vary and this can help if you are having trouble choosing just one particular rustic look. The first and most common rustic decor is the one that uses older stuff like antiques and hand-me-downs. As time passes, you inherit certain furniture pieces from loved ones and when you first get them you really don’t know what to do with them. That’s when a rustic look works out.

Wooden floors offer an antiquated effect to a rustic decor. But the accessories you place in the flooring could make a greater impact. Persian hand woven rugs are appropriate choices for this style. Nevertheless, you should note that Asian carpets are best fitting for large rooms as then the entire length is stretched out to exhibit all the designs to the carpet. Additionally, you will need to pick rugs that match the form of your room.

Decorating the walls
For starters, wood paneling is probably the best ways to begin a rustic decor. If paneling is out, then paint the walls in warm tones that evoke wood: tans, beiges, browns or warmer whites such as ivory or cream. Wallpaper, particularly in a log-cabin style, also can create the desired background. No matter what your wall covering choice is, strive for having a sense of being warmed by the sun in the outdoors.

Your furniture must match so if the furniture is mixed then you may be thinking about purchasing new furniture for the room. Don’t mess the room with too many pieces of furniture; make it simple. It doesn’t matter how light or dark the furniture is as long as it matches.

With regards to accessories look for items that have an antique or worn look. Once again, leather and wood make perfect accents, and keep the natural theme flowing throughout your property. A distressed wooden trunk is an ideal addition to a living room or bedroom, and antique style mirrors create beautiful walls. Flea markets are a great spot to find mirrors, plus it doesn’t really matter should they have a few dings.

Creating a rustic decor is a superb start for beginners.
