Though the rustic style is approachable and relaxed, it should feel welcoming with the use of some neutral color palette that's calming and traditional. Neutral colors like browns, grays, whites are the key and rarely bold pop of colors are used. Though monochrome can be an option, always choose something muted.

Key Features of Rustic Décor

  • Use Real Wood

When designing rustic home décor, try opting for real wood. Wooden flooring is a good idea, another option is to use a reclaimed wood farmhouse table. Rustic décor isn’t perfect and has imperfections, so be confident in choosing pieces that are a little weathered up.

Rustic furniture is a little gritty as it utilizes a lot of natural materials. Grainy woods, rugs made using animal hide or natural jute. Avoid using any sheeny thing to maintain the feel of rustic texture.

  • Heavy

Unlike mid-century décor and a modern one, the rustic design uses heavy elements. Think wooden kitchen tables with big and wide square legs, some deep, dark leather sofa and couches.
