Have you always wanted that rustic look for your living room? The rustic look never goes out of style, so it’s generally a great option. It’s also good for families with younger children and pets, because minor damage is less conspicuous with rustic décor. Where do you start though? The rustic look can just look worn and old if not done correctly. Here are some tips for creating the perfect rustic living room.
Rustic Living Room Flooring
The first thing to consider is flooring for your rustic living room. Look for reclaimed wood flooring. In Dubois County, it’s not that hard to come by. See, barn owners often turn to wood-salvaging businesses when they need to remove their barns. Replacing barns is usually less expensive than repairing old barns. Hoosier Reclaimed Timber, for example, has taken down plenty of barns throughout the state. The company gets calls about taking down an old barn weekly. The best barns for this are made of oak. They often date back to the mid-1800s! This company and others in Indiana take the reclaimed lumber and turn it into all sorts of things, including flooring. This is a really cool way to get a rustic living room rich with Hoosier history. A great accent to add warmth and comfort to the floor is a long-lasting wool floor rug.
Rustic Living Room Furniture
Country style furniture is certainly an option. Similarly, single-color, simply designed pieces also add to the rustic feel. A gorgeous wooden rocking chair and even a second hand chest of drawers are other pieces to consider. You can also hire a contractor to build a wooden wall unit. Old church pews with pillows in simple colors is another nice addition. For the rustic look, second hand stores and thrift stores are a fantastic option for wooden furniture. There’s never been a better time to buy second hand items anyway. The nation is in a massive wave of decluttering thanks to Marie Kondo’s books and TV show.
