Cabin Décor

Cabin Décor Vendors

Your cabin décor is important to the look and feel of your log home. Cabin décor can range from rustic and simple to fun and whimsical. Picking a theme for your house helps in the décor decision. The sky is the limit when it comes to decorating your cabin. There are a number of online retailers that specialize in cabin décor and have inventory such as log beds and rocking chairs, themed curtains, and knick-knacks. Cabin décor can also be found in your local stores and antique shops.

Some things to keep in mind when deciding the décor of your cabin are:

  • Architecture - Identify features in your cabin that you want to emphasize, like a picture window, high-vaulted ceilings, or particularly unique fireplace.
  • Location - Use colors and style that compliment your location. If your cabin is in the woods, bring the outside in by decorating in rustic, earthy tones.
  • Ambiance - Remember that lighting is important to the feel of a cabin. Be creative with uplights, candles lamps and lanterns. Too much light can make your cabin seem overdone, while lighting that is just right can give your cabin a warm and cozy feeling. If you're still not sure which décor or furniture type you may like for your cabins, read on to get an idea of what is popular in the world of cabin décor.

Rustic Décor

Often made of sticks, twigs and hewn logs to give a natural appearance, rustic furniture is popular for finishing cabin decor. Manufacturers of rustic furniture use a couple of different techniques to achieve the rustic look. The "bentwood" technique takes fresh sticks and twigs and steams them to make them more malleable. They are then bent into decorative shapes and other structures. The "stick" technique takes sticks of all shapes and sizes and uses them within the actual structure of the furniture. Almost any piece of furniture can be made in a rustic style.

Country Décor

Bring a little of the laid back country life into your cabin with soft, homey elements that are beautiful and practical. Heirlooms and hand-me-downs are a large part of decorating your cabin with a country décor. Practicalt items like quilts, cedar chests and wash stands also serve this style well. Old cookware, odds and ends, and tablecloths also add appeal as country décor. Folk art items such as clocks, candles and baskets often also turn up in country décor. In recent years the term country décor has begun to incorporate items known as Americana--using lots of red, white, blue, stars and stripes.

Log Décor

Lend your cabin décor an authentic feel with log cabin furniture (see cabin furniture). Beds, chairs, and tables can be crafted of hewn logs. This furniture style is very similar to rustic furniture. Instead of using small twigs and sticks, log furniture is made (as its name implies) using the whole log. Furniture items can be made in styles from sleek to rustic. Log furniture is often bonded using mortise and tenon joint, affording more strength and durability. If you're on a tight decorating budget you may want to avoid the use of log furniture. Custom built, it can drive up your cabin decorating cost.

Western Décor

Bringing a western décor into your cabin offers you a wide range of options from which to choose your furniture and decorations. In general, a western décor incorporates leather and wool textures. This can come in the form of a leather couch or chair with a colorful woven blanket thrown over the back. Go one step further and incorporate an old saddle in your décor and you have a cowboy feel. Furniture in the western décor is often oversized with earthy colors.

Primitive Décor

Primitive décor will take country décor back even further in time. It is the most basic approach and arguably the most beautiful because of its simplicity. Less ornate antiques are at the heart of the primitive style. Simple wooden beds, rocking chairs, and kitchen tables all project a primitive feel. Americana and folk art are also included in the primitive style. Worn and weathered items such as barn stars, rustic American flags, tin cans, and copper cookware have all found a place in this style. Remember, simple can be better and rental cabins are easier to maintain with "simple".
