Natural elements and rustic pieces has been something that I always have been attracted to. Even from a young age, I grew up on a farm with two large barns on it. I would explore the barns by climbing the ladders and exploring all the nooks and crannies. I could cringe when I think about all the barn wood there and how wished I had that amazing wood now! Rustic elements are all the rage right now in home decor, and here are ways to create a rustically-inspired space without breaking the bank.
1. Keep the Tone Neutral
I found when decorating my home, I needed to keep it to neutral tones for the walls, cabinets and furniture pieces. It helps bring out the natural beauty and texture of the wood beams. It also gives the space a more relaxed vibe.
2. Wooden Focal Pieces
If wood is your focal point, then adding beams and wood to your ceiling or walls is your golden ticket to creating a rustic space. I don’t like over doing it with wood, so I adding a few beams in designated places in my kitchen, family room, fireplace, and foyer area.
Lighting is a key factor in creating a warm and rustic feel. Adding recess lighting or hanging chandeliers is a great way to show off the beauty of the wood.
4. Shopping for Rustic Wood Elements
Shopping for rustic elements is not an easy feat. Especially since it is now a trend in home building and interior decorating, prices have skyrocketed! I have found a company that has a great faux alternatives. Barron Designs offer faux beams and other design products that will transform your home without costing a fortune.
