Are you thinking of ways to decorate your log home but don’t
know where to start? In this blog post I will explore the 5 must have items for your log home.
When considering decorating your log home, whether it is a
large lodge home or a small log cabin, form and function are imperative. You
want your log home to look beautiful but you also want the décor to be
functional. Hand forged functional and ornamental wrought iron is just the
The strong natural organic feel of wrought iron will
compliment the outdoorsy sturdy look of your log home. There are so many great
wrought iron decorating ideas it can get mind boggling deciding which ones to
choose for your home. So let’s narrow that decision down to my top 5.
- #5 Triangle
– No log home would be complete without a Triangle Dinner
Bell. Traditionally the Triangle Dinner Bell was used on the ranch to call the ranch
hands in for dinner, on the cattle
drive to call the drovers in for
supper, and in the pioneer home to call the
kids in for the evening meal. The image of mom on the porch ringing the bell
yelling “Come and get it” could have come right out of a Norman Rockwell
painting. A triangle dinner bell hanging from your porch is instantly recognizable
and will transport you back to simpler times.
- #4 Welcome Sign
– When you bought, or built, your log home you did so because you felt
homes are warm and inviting. Create that warm and welcome atmosphere from the
outset with a wrought iron welcome sign. A welcome sign lets your guests know
you are happy they came to visit and to expect a warm comfortable stay. Be a
gracious host and hang a welcome sign on your front door.
Wrought Iron Bed -
Hand hewn wood and hand forged wrought iron go hand in hand
when it comes to
decorating your log cabin or lodge home. What better way to incorporate wrought
iron into your home than with a wrought iron bed. You might be thinking that a
log bed would be a more natural fit in your bedroom than wrought iron. But
think about it, if your home is made of logs, you decorate your living room
with log furniture, and you have a log table in your kitchen isn’t a big log
bed a little over kill? A wrought iron bed will actually accentuate the other
log furniture in your bedroom, and throughout your house, while still keeping
the log home look.
- #2 Pot Rack
– A must have for any stylish log home kitchen is a wrought iron pot rack. Everyone
seems to gravitate to the kitchen so why not make if the showplace of your house without loosing functionality? The right pot rack will not only get
your pots and pans at arms reach and easily accessible it will also be a
statement piece in your kitchen. If you truly want your kitchen to be the talk
of the neighborhood a wrought iron pot rack is a must have.
Fireplace Tool Set
– The number one must have wrought iron piece for your log home is the right
fireplace tool set. The living
room is where you entertain guests and the fireplace is the focal point of that
room. Buying a cheap fireplace set from the big box stores just won’t
do. A brass fireplace set? Not a good fit. Fireplace sets with those wood or brass
come unscrewed and fall off… don’t even think about it! The right fireplace tool set will make your fireplace the envy of all. For my money the only fireplace tool set to
put in your beautiful log home is a hand forged sturdy functional attractive
wrought iron set.
Well there you have it the top 5 must have items for your
log home. Obviously there are many more I could mention like
hooks, hangers, candle
etc. but these are my top five. I hope you have found this post to be
