5 Features That Give Your Home a Rustic Look

    Homeowners today want a unique look in their home.

    Furniture and sofa sets that match too well are out, and decor has become more personalized to individual tastes.

    Some popular designs include rustic elements in your home decor.


Here’s how to include a few pieces scattered throughout the house in order to lend a unique farmhouse flair without having your home appear like it’s stuck in the country.

Feature a Rustic Mantle

Whether you’re resurfacing or replacing an existing mantle, consider using reclaimed timber as part of your design. Hand-hewn mantles, rough-sawn mantles and reclaimed beams all can add a great look to your living area or sitting room along with bricks that surround. If you have wall space and can find a great vintage mantle from an old home, you can attach it to the wall (sans actual fireplace) and decorate it according to your personal style.

Hang an Oversized Vintage Clock on the Wall

Everyone loves a beautiful and functional piece, and a large clock always does the trick. Buying a new one designed to look old or an actual old clock adds an old-fashioned element to your home while not taking up floor space. Get a clock in a bright color (or repaint it yourself) for even more pop in a room.

How to Age Wood in Minutes:

Install a Rustic Door

A front door is one of the first things guests see when they visit your home. Installing a new, rustic door can add just the right amount of personal style you’ve been looking for. Once you’ve researched your options and narrowed down the type of rustic door you like, be sure to hire a seasoned, professional like those at Arch Design to install it for you. You don’t want leaks, drips or faulty installation to damage the beauty of your new addition.

Interior rustic doors are also gaining in popularity. A particular favorite is a natural wood sliding door, especially good for small spaces.

Invest in Rustic Lanterns and Vases

In the colder months, set around vintage or antique-looking lanterns with candles to add rustic ambiance to any space. In the summer, fresh flowers or greenery in old-fashioned vases can be used to scatter on surfaces around your home.

Use a Farmhouse Table, Chairs or Buffet in the Dining Room

Instead of using an entire dining room filled with a matching set or rustic furniture, choose one piece to feature. A long farmhouse table with more modern chairs, vintage chairs or benches with a modern table or a painted, antique buffet can all add a rustic look to your dining room.

Just a few small changes can add that rustic look you’re looking for as you look to personalize a unique style for your home.
