When it comes to choosing interiors styles for you home, you’re often met with a lot of different options. You can often be stuck between a few different styles. One of the ways to help you decide is to consider your local environment, the history and the shape of your home. When you live somewhere rural and have a cozy space to work with, going for a cabin style interior can be a great option. Not only is it a really welcoming and comforting design theme, but it can also be striking too. If it’s a theme that you’re tempted to create, here are a few ways to achieve it in your home.
Use A Lot Of Wood
Firstly, you’re going to want to go wood crazy. Hopefully, your home itself is made from wood, has a wood frame, or wood cladding, because that will pull the entire look together. If not, you’ll just have to make the interiors count, or you could opt to clad your exterior as a part of the process. When it comes to the inside, cabin interiors are easy to create when you work with wood. From the floors to the walls and even the furniture, wood is the main (if only) material of choice.
Utilize Your Windows
The next thing you might want to do is work with your windows. Although cabin interiors are usually quite dark and cozy, they tend to have a lot of windows to let in a lot of natural light. Because the color pallet is often dark, the natural light is needed. So, be sure that you have plenty of windows in your space – preferably a triangular shape, giving you the perfect excuse to convert the attic into a living space.
Mix Up Textures
When it comes to the features of your cabin style home, you’re going to want to work with a mix of different textures. When you research cabin homes, they always have so many going on. From wool and cotton to fleece, wood, silk, and even faux fur, you’re going to want to add in lots of different textures to make the space warm, cozy and inviting.
Use Period Furniture
For furniture, you’re going to want to go classic. You may find that vintage finds always work, but you can even get modern creations of period designs, like a leather chesterfield sofa or solid oak sideboard, work wonders too. For things that you don’t want to invest in, be sure to head to local flea markets or check out estate sales where you can pick up perfect pieces for your cabin style home.
Bring The Outside In
And to add the perfect finishing touches to your cabin style home, you’re going to want to make it as natural and nature-inspired as possible. Using nature in your home will create great cabin vibes. From adding potted plants to using natural scented candles and sprays, you’ll give off the effect of being in the middle of a forest, even if you’re in a busy neighborhood.
