Rustic Style Bedroom Design for Men
Not a few bachelors' desire a nice sexy bedroom design that not only gives them the tranquility and peace they want but an interior space that will impress their special guest or partner.
There are a good number of bedroom design ideas for men, but this article is basically about the rustic style bedroom interiors that many men who tend to be art oriented or creatively inclined, will love to have.
What is Rustic Style Décor?
The word rustic can be used to describe rural, country or pastoral themes.
Though it is not a favourite of some men who seem to prefer modern bedroom interiors, a rustic style interior design is more for the man that loves the simple life, needs to have a close relationship with nature, and loves the raw natural characteristics of things such as brick, wood, cotton type textiles, and stone.
You can decide to keep your rustic style bedroom design simple by using an affordable rustic wooden bed and headboard and accessorize with fat bold coloured and textured throw pillows.
You can also make it bright and cheery like a country style bedroom, or light and breezy to depict a seaside theme.
Many homeowners that love the rustic lifestyle have retreats such as log cabins and beach homes.
Those that don’t but like to enjoy such treats now and then always opt for holiday lets that have these beautiful themed nature-inspired interiors with rustic style interiors.
For the Man Who Desires a Rustic Bedroom Style
A simple bed with wood paneling headboard can be your starting or focal point. It can be left natural, stained, or painted cream or white for a bright sunny feel.
Install light fixtures like sconces on both sides of the bed, in a position that falls directly above the bedside cabinets’ space. This light positioning works especially well in bedrooms that have limited space.
To add interest, use decor items that have rough textures such as driftwood wall lamps, a few animal motifs on cushions or area rugs, and natural materials such as rattan furniture, Hessian textiles, or seagrass rugs.
Blending Modern Designs with Rustic Style
No one can say you can’t achieve this successfully with great aesthetic results. There is no “either one or the other here.
To a good number of men, a blend of two outwardly disparate decorating styles may require the services of a decorator to put together successfully. But you can achieve a blended look with relative ease if you plan it your design out carefully.
A modern bedroom design with a dash of rustic provides a beautiful balance between raw natural charm and sleek airy minimalism.
This works almost naturally if your bedroom possesses exposed wood beams, pillars, and stone walls.
Renovations and conversion of old mills, lofts, barns, and other age-old interior spaces into dream bedrooms for men can result in superb looking rooms with great personality.
And to add a modern touch, it can be decorated with modern elements, furniture and/or furnishings like steel railings, large expanses of glass, leather, and plenty of white.
