Main characteristics of the rustic decoration
The wood is the base of the rustic decoration. It is critical to impress this style on the environment. But the material does not need to be used only on furniture, wood can be present on the ceiling beams, ceiling, floor and wall cladding.
If you want to create an even more rustic climate, invest in demolition wood and without any type of finish. If the goal is to create a sophisticated rustic, prefer the polished woods.
The brick is also a mark of the rustic decoration. They guarantee that stripped-down look and "unfinished" style. So, if you plan to explore this decor in your home, invest in that element.
You can either build a wall with them or use ready-made coatings that perfectly mimic the material. If you want a cleaner and smoother finish, just paint them in white.
Antique and heavy wood furniture can be used without fear in this type of decoration. This is also a great opportunity to recycle and reuse that wooden table or bench that was your grandmother's.
These furniture are charming, but in excess can compromise the decor, leaving it too heavy. So do not get carried away.
Various types of coatings can be used in rustic style decor. The most common, in addition to the brick already mentioned, are the synthetic materials that very accurately imitate noble elements such as wood, stones and leather.
Among the preferred for this type of finish are the porcelain tile, the laminate floor and the vinyl floor. These types of coverings can completely cover the walls or floor, but can also serve to highlight some area of the environment, such as a fireplace, the area of the oven or the wall of the TV.
Another type of flooring that is high in interior decoration and what you have probably heard a lot about is the burnt cement. And not just on the floor, it can also be applied to the walls.
Objects of rustic decoration
For a complete rustic decoration is indispensable the presence of elements that refer to the nature and the life in the open air. Therefore, use and abuse of plants, stones, wood, natural fabrics such as linen and cotton, clay, pottery, bamboo, copper and iron. .
These objects should also be simple and without great finishes. Avoid using pieces of glass, acrylic and stainless steel, unless you want to make a mix of styles. Alias, that's the theme of the next item.
