How To Create A Western-themed Family Room

Posted on

Whether you are moving into a brand new house or whether you are redecorating your present family room, if you have decided to have a western themed room, you are in for a lot of fun. Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create something unique and attractive.

Start With The Floor - Consider hardwood floors. They are affordable and easy to care for. They would definitely add to a western mood, too. Another consideration would be to faux paint concrete floors. If you are an artist, you'll probably feel comfortable doing the job yourself. If not, then consider hiring a professional to faux paint the concrete. Consider giving the floor the look of old wooden planks or rustic pebblestones. Concrete will last for a very long time and the faux painting will look just as great when it has a worn, older look.

Add The Decor - Consider choosing leather for your sofa and chairs. Another great look would be to select either red or blue denim. Leather and denim both wear well and they fit the Western theme you selected.

The Windows - Denim or gingham curtains would be great. Another good choice would be wooden shutters. Wooden shutters are very affordable and are so easy to install that you can even do it yourself. If you decide to let a professional install the shutters, it won't take long to do the job. Wooden shutters are super easy to care for. Simply go over them with a feather duster or a soft cloth. If they need extra attention, clean them with a cloth and a gentle cleanser. 

Have fun creating your western themed room.
