Log homes are hard to look away from as you drive by and take in the dramatic roofline peaks, round logs and other elements. They look natural and fit in well with a variety of surroundings. As lovely as the exterior of a log home is, the interior can be just as gorgeous, if not more so. Log home owners can do a number of things with the inside of their home. Some like to continue the log look and keep things as natural as possible while others like to go more modern and add splashes of color and different styles.
Many log homes have a more open floor plan, but even with the most open plan, there are still individual rooms and they can each take on their own style. Homeowners can decorate the bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen in a variety of manners. If the logs on the outside of the home also show on the inside, the wall colors may remain the same throughout the home, but that does not mean the color scheme of each room can’t vary. Windows often let in a lot of natural light in a log home and window coverings can add to the style of any room. The flooring can also differentiate one room from another. Lighting and other accessories along with furniture all make each room its own, even if they all fall under the same log home. Here are some examples of what homeowners with log houses have done with various rooms.
The living room is a well used portion of the house. It is where the family gathers to spend time together. It is where guests come to visit. It is a versatile room that can be used for many different things on many different occasions. Log home living areas have the opportunity to become an astounding portion of the home. These pictures prove it.
