Purchasing a new home normally coincides with change: you want to turn a new page in your book, break free from old habits, and finally replace the broken things you found it so hard to get rid of in your old home. You might even want to start completely from scratch, and try out a different trend in interior design this time. One that differs from the copy-paste contemporary interiors that everyone seems to have accepted as the norm. If you’ve always been drawn to raw, rustic furniture pieces that seem like they came from a different time, now is the opportunity to finally bring them into your home. And here are some good reasons you totally should embrace the rustic trend.
Liveable and Loveable Furniture
If you browse the wide offer on furniture for sale, you’ll come across plenty of rustic pieces. It’s a common misconception that rustic pieces are supposed to be ancient and outdated, when in fact they’re quite refreshing and people are always on the hunt for them. The popularity of rustic furniture probably has something to do with the certain homey vibe it has, considering how most new furniture pieces can feel cold and strange until they’ve been in your home long enough. But even when new, the raw and distressed design of rustic furniture makes it look like you’ve had it forever, which makes it feel even more comfortable.
Warm and Intimate Spaces
Modern and minimalist designs can sometimes feel too rigid and unwelcoming, but rustic style is the perfect recipe for a warm and intimate space, if that’s what you’re after. The muted colours and natural materials of rustic furniture for sale provide just the right amount of cosines a home needs. It’s just hard to beat the warmth that’s emitted from pieces made of raw, distressed wood. Bonus points if it happens to be reclaimed! You can even go a step further and feature wood, stone and other natural materials in the walls or floors and bring an additional dose of cosy, organic appeal.
Eclectic and Easy to Mix
If some of your old furniture is in a great condition, don’t be quick to throw it out as rustic is one of the rare styles that are easy to mix. Alternating furniture pieces in different styles is a great way to create an eclectic look that will keep your home from looking ordinary. Plus, rustic design can be easily blended with a variety of styles: rustic modern, rustic industrial or rustic Scandinavian. All of these trends have originated by experimenting, so do not be afraid to show your creative side.
