LIFESTYLE: What Gives A Home A Distinctly Old Feel?

 There are so many ways to approach styling your home, and it all comes down to what your personal taste and preference might be. But if you are keen on the old-world feel, then that is something that can be particularly beautiful and interesting to try and make come true. The question is, how can you produce the desired effect when you are trying to make your home feel old? In this post, we are going to take a look at just some of the ways that you can achieve this a little more effectively. You might want to try out all of these in turn.

Thatched Roofing

Whenever you drive past a home that has a thatched roof, it can’t help but take your breath away. If you want to provide people with that feeling when they see your home, then it is something you can make come true. You might be thinking that not every home can have this, but a lot can - and there are actually plenty of modern thatching services that can do this for you, allowing your home to have a real old-world feel in no time at all. There is nothing quite like this for that kind of effect.

Elegant Woodwork

Although wood and other natural elements are also often used in more modern designs, there is a certain usage of wood that can point to a much more old style, and that is something that we are going to want to look at here. Elegant woodwork throughout a home can immediately make any home look older, so that is something that you might want to consider. You’ll be amazed at now only how stylish it can look but what kind of overall appearance it can provide, so this is something you should consider if you are going to try for that.

Natural Scents

Something that you see less and less of in modern homes is not actually something you can see at all, but rather is more to do with how the place smells. You’ll want to think about having some truly natural scents in the home, and this is best achieved with pot-pourri and similar objects to that. If you have a lot of those kinds of scents, it is going to help make your home feel so much older in just the right way, so make sure that you are at least considering this.

Plenty Of Furniture

Because the contemporary look is all about minimalism and having as little as possible on display, the opposite of that can really make a place look like it is from many years ago. Don’t be shy of filling out the space in each room with lots of furniture of different kinds. This is an opportunity to aim for the eclectic furniture mix that you might be keen on too. Make sure that you are considering this at least, even if you don’t end up completely filling each room this way.
