Warm Up Your Home With Rustic Décor

If you love the cozy look of log cabins, but don’t actually have a cabin to call your own, there are plenty of ways to bring rustic décor right into your home. Decorating with a rustic theme is easy. Just think “˜natural’ and the first images that come to mind will probably work. With rustic décor, it’s all about bringing the outdoors in, whether you prefer that to be trees, logs, wildlife, or plant life!

Rustic rugs are a great way to bring rustic décor into your home and they can decorate any space. A large rustic area rug will cover almost an entire room, while a smaller rustic rug can sit at your front door as a welcome mat. These rugs are also a great way to divide up your space, something people are always looking to do when it comes to their overall design scheme.

When thinking rustic décor, think wood! Place wood wherever you can and this will go a long way to adding to your décor. Log cabins are made of wood, and incorporate that look throughout the entire cabin with wood floors, wood walls, and wooden ceilings. If you have high or angled ceilings, consider installing some real or wood faux beams. Panelling entire walls in log cabins is also quite common; but do this in your home and it’s most likely going to feel confined and outdated. Instead, cover the lower third of the wall only with wood panelling. You’ll still get that warm rustic feel, and the look will be very stylish.

Carry the wooden look through to the furniture of your home when decorating with rustic décor, and never look for modern pieces that tend to be slim and narrow. Instead, choose chunky pieces of wooden furniture. Large arm chairs with rustic decorative throw pillows placed on them are wonderful, as are large coffee tables made out of a tree trunk that’s been cut so its rings are showing. Don’t think that you have to use the same color of wood throughout though. Use darker wood for the large pieces and lighter wood for the smaller pieces, or vice versa. This is a great way to add further detail to the room.

Once you have these main pieces of rustic décor, it’s easy to fill in the rest with all kinds of accent pieces and rustic accessories. One of the fun things about decorating with rustic décor is that you can always collect different pieces and add to your existing décor. To start turning your home into a cabin getaway, make sure you check out all the rustic rugs and other rustic décor we offer that will look great in your home!

How To Care For Your Cabin Rugs

Your cabin rugs are an essential part of your cabin décor and unfortunately, they’re also susceptible to the most wear and tear, because they’re right under people’s feet and are often placed in high traffic areas. You certainly don’t want to be replacing them all the time, and you don’t have to. You just have to know how to care for cabin rugs properly.

  • To make sure that your cabin rugs get even wear throughout, and don’t start thinning on just one side, rotate them as part of your regular cleaning.
  • Don’t place your cabin rugs directly in sunlight as this will only fade them much faster. If you have to put your rug directly under a window or door, cover it with curtains or draperies to help protect the rug.
  • Vacuuming rugs regularly is one of the most obvious ways to care for your rugs. Don’t wait until you notice they’re dirty though, as by that point the soil will have already damaged the fibers. And if you have western rugs or other rugs that have fringes on the sides, make sure you never let these get close to the vacuum as the suction may tear the main part of the rug.
  • If something is spilled on your rug, scoop as much of it off as possible and then blot the area with a dry cloth. Apply warm water to the stain and continue to blot as much as possible. If that still does not get the stain out, mixing a little bit of laundry detergent with water and continuing to blot may work. To dry the rug, use a hair dryer but be sure not to overuse it as the extreme heat will damage the rug.
