Simple ways to create a rustic-looking home

Are you interested in getting new switch plates for your home and changing up your decor, but you're not down with the modern look? If so, you're not alone. There are many people out there who are not fond of the so-called "modern" look, since it often involves a lot of black and white and stainless steel. If you're the kind of person who is more interested in having a rustic feel to your home, then you're in luck, because this look never went out of style and is still popular today. 

Recently, the San Angelo Standard-Times quoted a number of design experts who explained fun ways to give your home a rustic look. For example, HGTV Magazine's Sara Peterson explained that garlands are very popular lately, and they have a real rustic feel to them. She added that while you can purchase garlands to place throughout your home, all you need is stamp kits, swatches of fabric and felt, and some wool to create your own. 

Furthermore, another simple way to help your home look more rustic is to incorporate some plaid into it. Whether it's a plaid throw blanket for your couch or a new plaid tablecloth for the dining room, there are many simple ways to bring this pattern into your decor. 

More ways to go rustic
Country Living magazine stated that one great way to bring a rustic aesthetic into your home is to replace the faucet in your kitchen with an antique iron hand pump, which can be very beautiful. However, if this seems a bit drastic to you, then you may opt for adding some more wood to your decor. For example, if you're considering re-doing parts of your kitchen, skip out on the tradition granite countertops that seem to be so popular these days, and go for wood instead. 

Antique stores are a great place to shop for rustic accessories for your home. One thing Country Living magazine recommended looking for were old rug beaters, which are very interesting looking and can be hung on walls throughout the house. Antique coffee tables are also a must-have for any home. Finally, old paintings of chickens, cows and other farm animals are a fun and quirky addition to any rustic home.
