A lodge style home evokes so many emotions in so many people. The rustic charm of these lodgings surpasses everything else. And to enhance and maintain the charm one must accessorize and furnish it appropriately.
Ideas to decorate
You can choose from the no-nonsense sturdy furniture to the more elaborately carved teaks and oak wooden tables and gizmos and rocking chairs. Add to this the right lighting and voila you have your own beautiful space amidst nature. You can also decorate the walls and floors to suit your style.
- Use wooden panels on the walls and ceilings. You can paint them in a wide variety of colors from garnet red to pine green, though leaving the natural color of wood untouched is the most preferable.
- Wooden or stone floorings are the ideal choices. Rugs in traditional motifs accentuate the beauty of the rooms.
- Use interesting artifacts to decorate the walls.
Don’t forget the view
Ask anyone and they will agree that the highlight of any lodge style home is its windows – they are the focal point in every room. Great windows are the blending point of the breathtaking outdoors with the warm cozy indoors. Hence, special care must be taken when selecting windows, their design and location.
Attention must be paid to the ratio of the window to the wall. What kind of window you chose will depend on the purpose of the window: is it just for viewing outdoors or is it to allow light into the house. You can choose from sliding windows to awning windows, bay windows, and casement windows according to the rest of the design of the house. Whatever the design or style of the windows you can get double glazed windows in any style and they must be your preferred choice because they are energy efficient and safe.
