The post-Christmas winter months aren’t exactly the pinnacle of fun times, especially since the cold weather drives most of us indoors during the week. The best way to cope with the January blahs is to deck out your living room and make it as cozy as possible. If you’re going to be in during a snowstorm with a book or the newest crime series on Netflix, you may as well enjoy your surroundings. Here are a few ideas to savor it the WoodOnSteel way!
Natural Wood Coffee Tables
The best place to start is with the centerpiece: a new coffee table, made from real wood can bring added warmth to any room. Use a stain that enhances the grain of the specific wood so that the rustic texture is really amplified.
A custom-made coffee table can make it even cozier. It will be unique to your space, turning the living room into a little bit of comfort that’s just for you!
Barn Board Accents
Barn board can be used to create the feeling of a warm, rustic cabin, and this cabin won’t require long winter drives and/or snowshoes to visit! Whether you’re using barn board in a table or as an accent wall, you can make your living room feel like a cozy loft way out in the country, even if you’re smack dab in the middle of the city
One excellent use of barn board is around a fireplace. It’s a good way to accent a real fireplace, but it can also be used to give a natural gas fireplace a more authentic feel.
Neutral Stains In Your Living Room
If you’ve customized your living room with unique furniture, but don’t think the look of raw wood would work, use warm neutral stains to create a cozy atmosphere. Soft brown stains like Golden Oak, Natural, or Pickled Oak can accommodate a wide range of fabrics and comfortable colors. If you’re still choosing the look of your custom furniture, make sure to think about how the stain can help enhance the warmth of the room.
Cozy Living Room Beds For Your Pet
Your pet will probably be spending as much time indoors as you’ll be, so why not make a cozy environment for them, too? The Rustix Mod Pod lets cats or dogs can have their own little slice of coziness in the living room! The Mod Pod is made from natural wood with stains that won’t harm your pet. If you don’t have a pet, heck, you can add it to the living room just for yourself!
Live Edges In Living Décor
Sometimes it’s best to just keep a little bit of nature as you curl up on the couch. Live edge furniture that incorporates the natural ridges of the tree will transform the living room into a rustic paradise. If the colors, knots, and grains of the natural wood are already great, we can use a stain that will only enhance them.
The live edge furniture doesn’t have to be the focal point of the room, like the coffee table or TV stand – it could be your end tables, bench seating, bar, or any other part of the room that accents your furniture. Whatever your game plan this winter, we can help you make the most of your time indoors!
