If you are a lover of the outdoors and wish you could reflect this love of nature through the decor inside your home, there may well be a way. Whether you live in the city but escape to the countryside at the weekends or are looking to bring some of the nature that surrounds your countryside hideaway inside, read on for a few ways of creating the desired look;
Keep the Colour Scheme Neutral
For the natural, outdoor look, bold and brash colours are certainly out of the question. The key thing is to keep your colour scheme relaxed and neutral, so creams, beiges and greens are more likely to work well with your overall design aims.
Go For Real Wood Furniture
In order to achieve the natural finish, you need to go for the most natural furniture possible, so real wood is certainly the way to go. From tables and chairs through to cupboards, surfaces and bedroom furniture, real wood can be used throughout the home, so whatever room you are trying to create the natural look within, be sure to include some form of real wood furniture to accentuate the outdoor feel.
Introduce Wood Effect Tile Finishes
Alongside real wood furniture, there are many finishes available in an imitation wood style that can contribute to the overall design. Wood effect floor tiles don't need to be sealed, wont scratch and often are cheaper than real wood. Here at Trade Price Tiles for instance, we have the stunning Onda range, which issuitable for use on both walls and floors. These large full bodied, matt finish tiles are slightly different to most in that they have a wood grain finish so are brilliant for creating the natural, outdoor look wherever they are installed. With 40% off this range at present, they are also a great addition if you are working to a tighter budget!
