How To Create A Modern Rustic Home

by HomeDecorBeauty

Every family is telling a story. And, if your story leans toward wood, outdoors, and earth-like elements, while balancing what a modern home demands, that means you’re ready for the perfect combination of both: a modern, rustic home. Yes, such a thing does exist, as design trends make it now possible to strike the perfect balance between old and new, modern and natural.

In fact, a modern, rustic home might easily be one of the most popular home design elements. From small elements to larger design aspects, you’ll never run out of opportunities to make your home look what it is. All it takes is some inspiration here and there, and trusted designers and contractors. Then, soon enough, you’ll open the door to your very own modern country home.

If you’re keen to learn how to bring this vibe into your home, read on for the best design ideas.

Using natural stone and reclaimed wood

When you search for country house design ideas online, the two most common building elements are natural stone and wood, which can be recycled or versatile wood,and many more. Picture a log cabin or farmhouse in the woods and you’ll get the idea. It’s like bringing the outdoors into your home.

So wherever you can use them, you can use natural stone and reclaimed wood in your home. There are many places to incorporate these elements into a home, such as:

  • Use wood for island countertops, backsplashes or floors in your kitchen. For this last option, you can even extend the wood floors to the rest of the home.
  • Build stone walls in your living room, foyer or even bathroom for accent.

Focus on Monochromatic Neutral Palettes

You won’t see many pops of color in a modern, rustic home. You’ll find a lot of muted, monochromatic, neutral shades for paint rather than bright shades. The whole premise is that these colors will complement the natural stone and reclaimed wood you will be using in your home design.

With a monochromatic palette, you can enjoy the advantages of a relaxed and simple environment. No sore eyes, especially if you find bright colors annoying.

play with textures

One of the characteristics of a modern country house is that it embodies the beauty of nature. This means that when you bring in natural wood and stone, you are free to use textures.

For example, wood and stone do not have to be perfectly sanded or worked, unlike modern homes that use a lot of tile, granite and quartz. In fact, it’s better to let their natural designs shine.That’s what it means to play texture. Every grain in wood tells a story that makes your home even more unique. After all, no two grains are alike.

Besides wood grain, there are other ways you can add some texture to your home design, such as:

  • across your rug, for example when you must use a wool or sheepskin rug
  • Pass the throw pillows your sofa should have, because rustic homes are all about comfort too

hang some modern art

Don’t forget, you’re after a modern rustic home, not just rustic. While most of your home’s design may now focus on a rustic vibe, you can still insert some hints of modern design here and there.

One of the best ways is to hang modern art. If you really want a bit of color, then this is where you can do it, not on the walls of your home. The modern art you hang can also be a great talking point when you invite friends and family over.

Modern art and paintings can also act as great accents when placed in the right areas of your home. These can help break up the monotony of having an overly rustic home.

Choose an open space concept

Finally, choose an open space concept. Modern homes are all about free movement, while country homes are all about comfort. Open space layouts are most effective when you mix the two.

With this, you also have to be very conscious of your furniture choose. Keep them as simple as possible and as neat as possible. This helps facilitate a smooth flow from one part of your home to another, so you can have a more seamless and holistic design.

wrap up

Are you ready for some chic ways to transform your home into a modern rustic home? When it comes to design, don’t feel overwhelmed by everything you can do. In fact, if you’re excited to get started, it’s best to go one room at a time. These are just a few of the things you can do if you’re building from scratch. If you’re renovating, do a thorough inspection of your home to check which design elements you should change, and how you can continue to come up with themes and interiors you’re after.
