When it comes to choosing your home decor, you may find that you’re torn between a lot of different options. Not only can these be based on a range of decorating styles that you like the look of, but the kind of home that you live in too. Because when you love the country cottage look, but you live in an urban area or a new home, you may find that you’re put off going with creating that kind of look. But ask yourself why? Because you don’t actually to live in the middle of the countryside in order to create a country look. It can be a really simple look to recreate, no matter where you live.
Make The Kitchen The Heart Of The Home
In a country home, the kitchen always takes center stage. Kitchens are often big, bright, and open. They’re where the family gathers to eat and enjoy themselves, and you don’t have to live in the countryside in order to recreate this in your own home. Focus on choosing the right look, which will be much more homely that it will be modern, and you should find that it has a good country feel to it when its complete. And be sure to build yourself a well-stocked pantry too. Because every country kitchen comes with an incredible pantry to fill with your favorite things.
Work With A Farmhouse Feel
But you have to make sure that you have that slight farmhouse feel to it too. Even if a country home isn’t a farm, it can often feel like it is. Whether that’s putting an AGA in the kitchen, or using a wood burning fireplace in the living space, you’re going to want to recreate the warming, homely, farmhouse feel in your home to make it feel more like a country cottage.
The Devil’s In The Details
As you’re decorating, you’re going to want to make sure that your details count too. Because if you start adding in very modern touches, it’s not going to look or feel like a cottage. Instead, you need to be able to work with touches like stone flooring and faux wood blinds for the right kind of image. And it’s this simple touches that will make all the difference.
Then, you have to be able to create yourself a lovely little country garden to go along with your house. To do this, you have to have a very natural look about the way you landscape. There are lots of plants that you can use to do this, but all in all, if you go with a very green and English country garden look about what you create, it will definitely set off the inside of your home.
Focus On The Right Look
Finally, you need to ensure that you’re working on creating the right look with the finishing touches you add to both your interiors and the garden too. This can often be done with the right materials and colors. Country homes are often very neutral, think beiges, browns, greens, and reds. Not too much bright color. Using lots of wood too, you should find that you can create the perfect country look, wherever you live.
