Log Home Decor
Log homes are rustic and charming wood structures that present a wide variety of décor options when furnishing the interior and exterior of the home or cabin. The natural look and feel of polished and stained cypress logs provide a unique setting for a number of wood accessories and furniture that will fit perfectly in your log home or log cabin. Whether you log home or log cabin is a vacation retreat or year-round residence high quality wood and timber décor accessories will always make this a special place to come home to.
When planning the layout for a log home or log cabin you may want to leave room for a custom built deck or staircase that will highlight your wood working craftsmanship and add a unique feature that will distinguish your log home from others. Custom pins and hooks on the side of a staircase can be shaped to seamlessly blend into the staircase while still providing places to hang coats and jackets. Any log home deck can also be custom designed to suit your own personal tastes including room for a hot tub or gas grill. Natural wood gives you the option for exquisite cabinetry and a wide range of furniture including chairs, tables, shelves and storage benches that will fit in perfectly with the treated cypress logs of the home.
Another wood component that is often used as a décor piece even though it has a far more practical purpose is the engineered wood beam. These sturdy and durable pieces of lumber are used for log home beams and are placed in a number of strategic places throughout the log structure to provide support. However, with the right sanding, finishing and stain you can make your beams look polished and clean so they fit in well with the stain scheme of the log home interior. Stains and finishes come in a wide selection of light and dark wood tones so you can custom match the beams to siding and paneling or provide a contrasting tone that offsets mahogany and walnut colors.
Log homes and log cabins are perfect for outfitting with custom made wood furniture including tables, chairs and shelving. Finely finished and smooth surfaces on tables, chairs and couch frames make a huge difference in the rustic yet comfortable feel of a log home or log cabin. Matched with coordinating pillows and cushions your wood furniture can be rather plush and cozy especially when in the mountains or out in the woods.
