Log home decorating ideas
Anything actually just go with wooden designs but to achieve one good house with log decorations, the following are some tips which you may find useful.
Make it contemporary
Incorporating nature in your home does not mean going traditional. A popular theme in most houses today is using log decorations that make the room look classy. Wooden ceilings are placed a little higher with wooden walls in lighter shade. It is recommended to have more windows to allow natural light to enter the home to have the same feels of outdoor sensation.
A little iron and glass may be added as in the stair railings and in the windowpane respectively. Adding iron lamp bases and glass table tops to wooden table makes a good combination, too.
Consider wooden furniture
To add to the natural effect of your room, you may use wooden furniture instead of the typical ones made with iron. For instance, in your living room, try using glossy sofa made out of timber matched with throw colourful throw pillows.
Decorate the entire living room with ligneous frames housing family pictures or sayings or religious verses. Find a dining wooden dining set with glass top for the family. It may also be pure lustrous wood coupled with wooden chairs with a little foam for comfort. For your kitchen, you can try placing cabinet pulls and hanging cabinets made of wood and timber frames for fridge.
To make the room look modern and fashionable, you should mix up your home log decorations with small porcelains, collectibles, ornamentation and furnishings with brighter colours. Colours ranging from yellow to orange and red are good choices.
To intensify the colours and the log decorations, adding a lighting fixture may help. A small lighting made of fabric and metal for low ceiling homes or a big wooden chandelier with yellow lights for high ceiling homes are places right above you living or dining room to complement with your home decorations. Putting wall lightings in kitchen and bedrooms may also be considered.
Consider some space
Log decorations can look space-consuming for the eyes. If you intend a richer look of your room, consider adding allowance on the spacing of your decorations.
Due to the inherent colour of the wood which looks a little untidy, it is wiser to maintain the cleanliness of the room every now and then. Normally, a clean house is a good-looking house. A decent arrangement of the log decorations can make the room spacious and clean.
