Long Lasting Rustic Bedroom Furniture

Rustic furniture is the kind of furniture normally used in a hunting lodge or a cabin in the woods. True rustic furniture is heavy, solid, and rugged. Today, rustic bedroom furniture has become the latest trend in bedroom decor. Rustic bedroom furniture can really add warmth and create a theme in your space. Rustic bedroom furniture gives the room a feeling of natural beauty without the finished look of processing. This can be accomplished in various ways, but one of the most common types of rustic bedroom furniture is the log furniture design.

The pieces of furniture are made from various types of wood, but the wood is not cut straight or otherwise finished to create a smooth, straight look. Instead, imperfections and knots in the wood are left plainly on display to give a sense that the furniture’s wood was freshly cut from logs. Sometimes various woods can be weathered to appear vintage or excessively old. This is a common way to make rustic bedroom furniture that is solid and sturdy, yet aesthetically weathered and worn.

The woods are generally darkened and the texture is imperfect; cracks, grains, knots, and pits are common on the wood to give it an older look and feel. The wood may actually be recently cut and processed, but the appearance gives a sense that it has been exposed to regular use for decades. Many furniture makers will use certain techniques to weather the wood quickly without damaging the overall quality to make rustic bedroom furniture of this type.

Other types of rustic bedroom furniture may simply feature woods with grains and tones that give a feeling of unfinished or vintage construction. Some types of oak and mahogany, for example, may not be rustic at all, but the tones and grains give a feeling of simplicity and a charming appearance. Bed frames are the centerpieces of rustic bedroom furniture sets. They will usually feature the same wood used for dressers and night stands so the aesthetic of all the pieces is completely consistent.

Dressers also afford the builder the opportunity to showcase the natural beauty of the wood, and in some cases, the builder may choose to accent darker woods with lighter veneers or drawers that contrast with the frame. The price of rustic bedroom furniture ranges from the economical to the expensive. Rustic bedroom furniture sets made of quality materials are expensive. Hardwood, plush cushioning, and wrought iron are definitely highly priced, but ensure quality and durability.
