If you want to give your home a beautiful rustic and charming appeal, we’ve put together ideas on how to welcome the look into your home, including rustic accessories and distressed furniture.
Introduce new furniture to the home
Good quality oak furniture is often made from the finest selection of natural timber; the rustic charm shines through in the variation of the grain, adding individual nature and appearance to each piece. Oak furniture is often warm and inviting, adding a little shabby-chic feel to the room.
For the kitchen, why not purchase a chunky oak table to take centre stage, decorated with frilly place mats, a glass vase with fresh flowers and chunky oak chairs to sit and relax on. For the front room, oak table sets can provide low level shelving for photo frames and coaster matts for hot drinks.
Add antique accessories
An easy way to inject some rustic charm into the home could be easier than you think! Head down to your nearest antique store or charity shop to hunt out some beautiful china dishes. You can hang them on the walls, use them as candle holders, soap dishes – the possibilities are endless.
If you fancy a little DIY project, why not transform your furniture with a distressed look, instantly adding rustic charm to the furniture? Add white paint to desks, tables, cabinets or whatever furniture you want to use. Then use sandpaper to rub some of the paint away for the coveted distressed look.
Don’t forget about the outside
The right exterior enhancements can dramatically improve how charming your home looks from the outside. Why not hang a large lantern to add depth and definition, or perhaps change the style of the door to a more detailed design so that it matches the style of your home?
