Whether fixing up a vintage building or starting a new construction project, The Rustic Homes Connection has most of the essentials for cabin, lodge, ranch, or farmhouse. Even if you have a plain home and you simply want to add some rustic design elements to add extra interest, this is a website well worth checking out.
Consider cast bronze or hammered copper doorbell buttons or matching doorbells. If you want to stay old school there are always door knockers. There are a wide variety of rustic lighting fixtures for both interior and exterior. Other items that can make a strong visual statement while approaching the front door are bronze plaques, rustic house numbers, mailboxes, mail slots, and an attractive door knob collection. To light up a dark country night there is even a lamp post.
Moving to the interior, there is a stunningly large collection of heat registers, air vents, and return air grilles. These are available in a vast array or woods and metal finishes. There are both stock sizes and custom sizes available. For the hands-on person there are collections of rustic motif stencils. When outfitting drawers and cupboards be sure to see the many collections of rustic hardware. Also noteworthy are the rustic switch plate collections.
What cabin couldn’t benefit from a hand made wood clock on the mantel? Traditional southwestern rugs, mirrors, picture frames, and hanging pot racks help make a visual statement in a lodge, cabin, or ranch. A traditional fireplace is best complemented by a set of fireplace tools by a genuine American blacksmith. Cowboy motif dinnerware and glassware look wonderful next a forest motif art tile. Maybe you should even consider a restored vintage rotary telephone!
The vast majority of items are made in America by skilled artisans. In a throw away society it is good to know that quality still exists!
