6 Things you need for your rustic style home

June 1, 2022

Nowadays there’s no need to move to the country to live in a farmhouse. You can turn any house into a rustic style home if you’re willing to put in the work. That is, if you’re willing to pay for some new furniture and decorations, because our professional movers have excellent moving and delivery services to help you with the heavy lifting! They can also assemble your new furniture, so if you need this service just ask us via our chat and we’ll be more than happy to help.

Here are 6 things you need to know to furnish the rustic style home of your dreams:
  1. Use a neutral colour scheme.

A base of neutral tones will compliment the rustic decor you choose. You want the focus to be on the natural elements of your home, so stay away from vibrant colours. Pro tip: white looks really good with wood.

Integrate natural materials into your rustic style home
  1. Integrate natural materials where possible.

Think hardwood flooring, a stone fireplace, wooden beams, and rustic metal decor. These materials can usually be found at home reno stores, but if you want them to look more “worn”, try Facebook Marketplace.

Did you know our professional movers at MoveMate will do your Facebook Marketplace pick up or delivery? And it only takes 2 minutes to book our moving and delivery service!

Integrate textured fabrics into your rustic style home
  1. Use fabrics.

Rustic style homes pride themselves on their cozy features too. Use a variety of fabric items to add some warmth. You could buy chunky knit blankets, a faux fur throw for your couch, or a patterned woven rug to add some colour!

Rugs are notoriously difficult to move, so why don’t you hire professional movers to do the large item delivery for you?

Embrace imperfections in your rustic style home
  1. Embrace imperfections!

A rustic style home is timeless because of its character, not how pristine it is. Try checking out some local thrift stores for used furniture or decor. In fact, mismatched furniture can make your rustic style home really unique! Things like cabinets, tables, chairs, frames, and mirrors don’t need to be new. And they can all be found at a secondhand store. With the right moving and delivery service, they can be delivered right to your living room!

  1. Edison light bulbs.

That’s all you need to know.

  1. Make it your own.

If you want a rustic style home, but you still want a feminine touch, add some crystal features like a chandelier or vases with fresh flowers. Throwing in some pops of light pink is a great way to make your home less “farmhouse” and more “pinterest dream house”!

Completely updating the style of your home can be a big undertaking, so don’t try to do it all in one day. But if you want to make your life easier, hire our professional movers at MoveMate to deliver any large item you need. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our support team.
