Home décor trends go in and out over the years, but the classic rustic style seems to always come back. Rustic style is defined by features that are rugged and inspired by nature. Homes with emphasis on these rugged and rustic features are comfortable, cozy, and welcoming.

Here are some tips and tricks to make your home look more rustic and take advantage of the unpretentious effortlessness of rustic style:

Create Warmth with Exposed Beams and Wood Furniture

With exposed wood beams and large, functional wood furniture, your room will be instantly transformed with farmhouse chic features. Large cheerful wooden kitchen tables, kitchen islands, coffee tables, and more provide a beautiful centerpiece to any rustic room.


Open it Up

Combined living and dining spaces provide more than enough room to execute a flawless rustic style. With open spaces, your home will feel light, airy, and effortless. With rustic-style furniture, it’s easy for the room to feel overwhelmed or cumbersome, with an open-concept layout, you won’t have to worry about the room getting overtaken by furniture or décor. In order to achieve this, homeowners often choose to install new windows or knock down existing walls to open the space.

Eclectic Details

For example, the tub, sink, and shower do not need to come from the same family. The stunning rustic design blends modern and vintage features into one beautiful room. Try adding some eclectic details to your home such as a claw foot bathtub or apron sink in a bold color. These small details will truly give your home rustic appeal and effortless style.

Play with Color, Patterns, and Texture

Try a bold cover for the couch or beautiful intricately embroidered bedspreads. Painting your walls with warm, neutral tones is also a great way to further solidify the earthy ambiance of a rustic home, but a bold accent wall will take your style to the next level. Incorporating numerous patterns and textures into your home décor provides comfort and a dynamic look that guests will notice.
