How to Give Your Living Room a Rustic Makeover

When you are looking to change up your living room, giving it a rustic makeover can be a great way to add some beauty and charm into the space. One of the best things about Western living room décor is how simple it is to add to your existing area. At Adobe Interiors, we offer a variety of rustic and Western furniture and décor to help transform your dull living room into a place filled with warmth and comfort.

Start with the Shelves

Framed shelving is a great way to add some rustic charm to a room. You can then add a variety of Western and rustic décor pieces to the shelves to complete the look. For a more authentic look, you can create your DIY shelving to incorporate into your home for a truly unique piece.

Update Your Storage

Though we may not think much about our storage bins, updating those to match your rustic theme can add a new element to your living room. Swap out your plastic containers for wicker baskets to store your blankets, remotes, and magazines in a stylish manner.

Change Your Lighting Fixtures

Another great way to add rustic charm into your living room is to change the lighting fixtures in the room. Swapping out your boring department store lamp for one of our beautiful rustic pieces will help transform the look of your room almost instantly.

Rustic Living Room Ideas for Small Spaces

Small spaces can be the bane of everyone’s decorating desires. That large, cushy couch and 50” TV screen may not be able to fit in your living area as you had hoped. Fortunately, there are a variety of Western living room décor ideas to suit your small or narrow space. Below are three ways you can make a tight space look comfortable and inviting.

  1. Keep it Simple

When decorating a small space, you want to keep things simple. Too much in the room can make it look cluttered and unorganized, so choose one or two accent pieces for the room. Opt for beige walls and rustic brown wood floors to help the room feel more open. You can then choose a Western-style coffee table, armchair, or loveseat to be your accent furniture for the room.

  1. Separate Spaces with Rugs

If you have an open floor plan between your kitchen, dining, and living area, use a beautiful rustic rug to separate the spaces. This will allow you to dedicate certain parts of the floor plan as your room, and also provide a centerpiece for all of your other living décor.

  1. Leave an Open space in a Narrow Room

If your living area is long and narrow, keep an open space or path along the room. By having a clear path from the door to the entryway for the next room, you can help the area appear less awkward. Floating couches are another great way to help decorate the space, and will prevent you from cramming everything against the walls.

If you are looking to decorate your home in Western-style décor, the designs available at Adobe Interiors are second to none. If you love the look and feel of Western living room décor but are not entirely sure how to use it in the space, below are some decorating ideas to create a cozy, classic look.

Combine natural and dark colors: If you are after a rustic Western look, try combining natural wood tones with deep and vibrant reds, golds, and browns. You can also incorporate rich leather or suede sofas with stone floors and rustic detailing. Adding a few indoor plants to the room can create a brightness to balance out all of the darker colors.

Merge modern touches with Western themes: If you love the look of Western décor but want something a little more modern, it is easy to balance the two. Adding Western accents such as animal print rugs, leather sofas, or mounted animal heads to a room can add an alluring touch to a more 21st century-styled area.

Mix wood and leather furniture: For a Tuscan-inspired theme, find leather and wooden furniture pieces to pair together in your living room. A deep brown leather sofa next to lighter wooden coffee tables and entertainment stands can create a great Western-look without going too over the top.
