Room Transformation: From a Plain Old Bedroom to a Rustic Dream

Any bedroom, no matter how plain and simple, can turn into a rustic dream come true. You just need the determination and a little bit of research to make it happen.

The right mindset and sufficient knowledge about rustic bedroom design, however, will not yield results until you physically apply these to the bedroom transformation. Having said that, here are some small solutions that make a big difference towards having the bedroom of your dreams.

Install Soft Lighting

Lighting plays a major role in interior design. Thus, you should take note of your current light fixtures and how they affect the bedroom’s overall vibe. If you’re going for a rustic look for your space, install soft and warm lighting aspects that veer away from shiny elements.

On a related note, stay away from bright colors including stark white (as opposed to shades such as off-white, pearly white, and the like). Rustic interior decor typically adopts earth tones such as brown and beige.

Use Natural Textiles

A rustic interior design sensibility is all about feeling cozy and comfortable. As such, use natural textiles for your beddings, blankets, rugs, and curtains. Linen, wool, burlap, and weaves are great types of fabric to build a warm ambiance.

And while we’re on the topic of fabrics, don’t be afraid to experiment with textures. Some contrasting textiles will balance each other out and contribute to an overall pastoral atmosphere which exudes charm and warmth

Invest in Wooden Furniture

Wooden furniture never goes out of style. Practically speaking, the material is strong and sustainable. It is also versatile; it looks good regardless of the setting. Therefore, you will have no problem creating a rustic atmosphere when you have wooden furniture.

You can use a simple bedside table, drawer, or headboard to accentuate the rural-inspired interior design. The fixtures should match the overall color scheme, though, for the design to remain coherent. In this case, research about wood types and explore your options: oak, pine, cherry, maple, walnut, mahogany, and more.
