Everything’s better in Texas. The food, the weather, and the houses. And when it comes to thinking of the best Texas rustic home decor, no body can think of better ideas than your local Texan. Whether you live in the city or out in the backwoods, a rustic home is “in” right now, and there are plenty of things you can do to make your home more like those Texas ranch homes.
Ideas for Texas Rustic Home Decor
Decorations play a big role when it comes to designating a theme in your home. Adding touches of antique furniture can portray a rustic feel to your home. You can turn any piece of furniture into an antique by distressing the paint. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. You’ll need the item of your choice (preferably a wooden piece of furniture), chalk paint (Annie Sloan works best) and a paintbrush. Paint the item using small strokes in all different directions, and remember that less is more. The chalk paint will dry easily leaving an aged look. Viola! You’re done.
If you don’t want to paint your furniture, try using the chalk paint as a way to distress the outside of your home. Window decorations add curb appeal and value to your home. You can use the chalk paint and a clear wax to coat window shutters or the windowsill. Shutters instantly add a ranch-like look to your home, and distressing them can give an even more rustic appeal.
When it comes to home decorations in Texas, less is not more. More is more! Throw a few metal stars around the home, a cowhide rug and buy a large chandelier. Wood is good, too. Ranch houses typically have accents of wood throughout the home. You can do this by using wooden frames to create a gallery along a main wall, or start a cross-wall with a large wooden cross in the center. Another way to make your home look like you live on a ranch is by adding siding. Specifically siding that looks like stones. Many Texas homes use Brickstone masonry siding to add curb appeal and a rustic feel.
With the right decorations, your modern home can turn ranch-style as fast as you can say, “Yee-haw!”
