Tips for Creating a Chic, Rustic Home

Home Improvement

The "rustic" look has become very popular recently, and many people are implementing this particular style in their homes--whether they're from the old-fashioned South or the ever-modern L.A. But creating a rustic look in a home walks a fine line between pulling off this trendy look and just making your home look rundown and out of date. So how can you pull off the rustic look? Here are a few tips to help you out.

Barn Doors

When it comes to the rustic look, big accent pieces can help you pull off the style while allowing you to still maintain a minimalist style--that's the kind of balance that really helps to make this style effective. There are many modern designers out there who create and install barn doors for homes in Los Angeles. These kinds of big accent pieces are just what you need to pull off the right look.

Typically, you will want a barn door that is made from reclaimed wood. This will give the door that classic "weathered" look that is so essential to pulling off the rustic style. You can also choose between having a no-fuss door that is compromised simply of vertical slats or a more traditional barn door style, which has 2 horizontal slats as well as a diagonal piece of wood. It all depends on how much of a country look you want the doors to have.

Wood Accent Walls

Speaking of big accent pieces, installing an accent wall is a great option if you're trying to have a chic, rustic look in your home. But that doesn't mean putting up a different color of paint on one wall of a room. If you really want to complete your home's rustic style, you should consider installing an accent wall made of reclaimed wood. 

As already mentioned, reclaimed wood is an essential part of rustic decor, and it is used in many ways to pull off this style. An accent wall of wood is a great way to tie in the weathered wood, but it shouldn't be overdone. If you already have quite a bit of reclaimed wood in your room--whether it's a barn door or several furniture pieces--then you probably don't want to do the accent wall. However, if you're looking for a way to make a big statement and completely change the feel of a room from modern to rustic, the accent wall is a great way to go.

Antique Furniture

A key component of the chic, rustic home is having classic furniture pieces that have clearly withstood the test of time. Typically, the best way to achieve this look is to purchase true antique furniture. Of course, not any antique will do. You will want to find pieces that have clean lines and don't waste a lot of time with flourishes and other such details.

If real antique furniture, simply isn't in your budget, then you can go back to that reclaimed wood route that has already been discussed many times. If you're familiar with woodworking, you may be able to build a few simple pieces of your own with reclaimed wood. If not, you can always find a designer to create some for you, or find a shop that sells furniture designed from reclaimed wood. With the rising popularity of the chic, rustic home, it's becoming easier and easier to find these kinds of stores around.


These are just 3 simple ways that you can try to makeover your home and pull off the chic, rustic look. If you need more inspiration, find a shop that sells rustic items like barn doors for homes in Los Angeles and browse their merchandise.
