When you begin decorating or redecorating your home, how much time is spent considering new chairs? Whether in your kitchen, dinning room, office, or other living spaces, barnwood chairs can be the solution to completely pulling together the look of a room.

Customize with Colors and Accents

Whether you need a pop of color to break things up or you’re looking to match the color scheme of a room, a chair is a fun and easy way to incorporate such colors.

We recommend painting a chair or barnwood stool with a bold color for an eye-catching surprise, or try a more sublet approach by incorporating all the colors of the room into a single chair.

Add Some Rustic Flair

Reclaimed oak chairs and stools can completely transform the look and feel of a room in your home or office. Selecting various stains and finishes can take a barnwood chair from dull to full of life in just a coat or two!

The Possibilities are Endless

Who’s to say that you need six traditional chairs around a table? Switch things up by getting three chairs for one side and a bench for another.

Feeling a little more adventurous? Don’t get a single matching chair for your dinning area. People will be inspired by the originality!

Warmer days are on the horizon! Are you as excited as us? We’re thinking yes!

A new season always brings new design inspirations and we love getting in on them. The truth is, though, that home decorating is expensive and time consuming. So how do you “keep up with the Jones’s” without breaking the bank?

We are sharing some of our favorite tips when we’re feeling a little bored with our space.

Bring in Flowers and Plants

Flowers are a natural and easy way to add a new color in any room, whenever you want. Not to mention – they smell beautiful and are inexpensive! Want to get in on the latest trend? Grab a succulent to place on your living room coffee table. It’s easy to care for and sure to be a hit!

Add a New Coat of Paint

Whether on an accent wall or your favorite barn wood table, a fresh coat of paint is the first step in giving your space a brand new feel. Make it a simple project with some spray paint or step it up a notch with some chalk paint, which gives your furniture a cool matte finish.

Clean Your Reclaimed Barn Wood Furniture

Once you’re satisfied with your updated layout and look in your home, be sure to properly clean your barn wood furniture.

Some items to avoid when cleaning our barn wood include:

  • Silicone-based cleaning or polishing products
  • Harsh chemicals such as ammonia, bleach
  • Abrasive powders, pads, or steel wools
  • Sponges or dishcloths that have been used to clean food or may contain oils

One of 2017’s biggest design trends is set to be farmhouse inspired décor. Blending rustic elements with modern pieces can bring the feeling of farmhouse living to any home. Read on as we explore ways you can incorporate this trend into your home.

Exposed Beams

Exposed ceiling beams put your home’s unique architecture on display and really showcase the construction elements of the home. Revealing the “bones” of your home can be done a very classy manner, allowing it to benefit a variety of styles. Exposed wooden beam and large windows provide warmth to a room, as well as giving it a rustic cottage feel. When choosing to utilize exposed beams in your home it’s best to choose one room, such as your living room, as you do not want to over use the design throughout your house.

Accent Walls

Accent walls fit well in bedrooms behind a bed, in bathrooms to showcase an ornate tub or in a room that features artwork.
