Choosing a Rustic Dining Room Set

Many people mistakenly interpret the word “rustic” as meaning furnishings that are worn or somewhat broken down. In reality, the rustic style is popular not only for its exceptional beauty, but for the superior materials and craftsmanship used to make it last for years. That’s why you want to select rustic dining room furniture that will accommodate your needs for a long time. The central focus of the dining room is the table and chairs. That should be the starting place for furnishing your rustic dining room.

Materials

Rustic house decor is made from a variety of materials found in nature. Hickory, cedar log, and barnwood are used to build strong furniture with a rough, natural finish. The very nature of rustic design allows you to bring together a variety of materials and styles instead of being limited to coordinating the wood finishes like you do with other styles. This gives you more flexibility to add accessory pieces to the dining set of your choice instead of limiting the furniture pieces that will blend in.

Shapes and Size

Dining tables come in round, rectangular, square, and oval shapes. They may be made of rough boards or of logs. They come in heights that accommodate either regular dining chairs or benches. Some offer more flexibility by having extensions that allow you to expand your dining area. Before choosing which size and shape of dining table you need, you will need to consider how much seating room you need and the available space in your dining area. Measure the available space in the room. Leaving between 42 and 48 inches of space between the table and the wall or furniture on each side, how much room does that leave for the table?

Each diner requires approximately two feet of space to eat comfortably. If you only have larger numbers of guests on occasion, an expanding table may be your best option. To better visualize what a certain sized table will look like in your dining room, use a bed sheet folded to the exact dimensions in the area where the table will be placed.

Chairs and Accessories

The chairs you choose to complete your rustic dining room set will make a big impact on the overall style of the furniture. Cutout arm chairs feature trees, ducks and other rustic themes that give instant rustic appeal to the room. There are also upholstered and plain log chairs from which you can use a single design or mix-and-match for a more unique look. Benches in a variety of styles are also available to use with specially designed dining tables.

Although the dinette set is the focus point of your dining room, the right accessories can give a sense of unity to your theme. Buffets, hutches, and display cabinets can be used for needed storage and to add to the beauty of the dining room decor. Choose display items carefully to ensure they are the best way to take advantage of the beautiful rustic furniture instead of taking away from the rustic theme.

More materials are available today in rustic finishes that make decorating with a rustic theme elegant enough for any home. Creating the perfect getaway in your bedroom starts with beautifully detailed rustic bedding at an affordable price. The bed is the center focus of the room, providing you with the ideal starting point for your rustic theme.

Tips on Creating a Rustic Bedroom

The key to creating a bedroom that has the look and feel of an authentic cabin in the woods is to bring the outdoors inside. The natural colors and simple designs used to create the items in rustic house decor will provide you with the perfect touch for every area of the room. Look for items that have a similar theme to the bedding to give the overall decor of the room a unified touch. Getting the authentic rustic results you want for your bedroom call for special attention to detail in a few specific areas, including:

• Materials – Plastic has no place in nature, and it doesn’t belong in the rustic bedroom, either. Use items that are made from natural materials, like copper, wood, and stone. Authentic rustic furniture and decor will look raw and sturdy, as though it was crafted by hand by the home owner.

• Colors – Choose rustic bedding, curtains, and pillows made with the colors of nature. Brown and beige, sage and evergreen, rust red and robin’s egg blue create a natural palette that will look like it was designed by Mother Nature. Stick with neutrals for the main colors and add accents of the deeper hues.

 Seasons – Incorporate the seasons into your bedroom decor just as you would in nature. Heavier bedding is appropriate for winter, with fluffy comforters and decorative throws providing the added warmth you need. In summer, use a bordered sheet from the rustic bedding collection to replace the throw for added comfort and lightweight decorative appeal. You can also use a lightweight comforter that is appropriate for warmer weather to keep you warm during cooler temperatures at night.

• Layers – Shy away from monochromatic linens, and use layers that combine colors and textures to give you’re bedding a multi-dimensional appearance. Start with a bed skirt in a rich shade, and top with themed sheets and a coordinating comforter. One way to accomplish this is by purchasing a coordinated rustic bedding set that has the colors and patterns perfectly matched for you. Add throw pillows on the bed, along with a throw made from faux fur or velveteen as the final touch, for a rustic bed that is as inviting even during the coldest of weather.

Choose Your Animal

Animals such as moose and bear, which are typically part of the scenery in nature, will also be part of your rustic bedroom. Choosing the animal that you want to incorporate into your theme will make it easier to select the right rustic house decor to coordinate the entire room. If your bedding includes images of moose, add some of the decorative pieces to your walls, or with a throw pillow that features a single moose displayed in an obvious spot.

Incorporate Personal Belongings into Your Theme

The best way to give your decor the authentic look of a rustic cabin is to add real items that have special meaning to you. Old fishing equipment makes a great complementary piece for a fishing-themed bedroom, while an old pair of cowboy boots will look great with any western theme. One small addition to your theme can make your entire decor even more personal.
