When decorating a country primitive bedroom, the first rule is simple. You want to bring out the “old” in you! This means throwing away all of the “modern” accessories and decorating with items that have been in use for generations. Throw out everything except for the wood burning furnace and some basic furniture. That is what makes it authentic.
Try to use as much natural products as possible. This will help tie the room together. Old barn wood frames, baskets, and cedar lined closets are just a few examples. Use rustic colors like yellows, browns and blues. You can even paint your walls a very light pastel color.
Next, you need to think about adding in a country primitive bedroom dresser. One of the best ways to do this is to go with an antique. Many people don’t realize how important antique dressers are in a bedroom. It is not only a focal point but it adds a touch of class. The other thing about an antique dresser is that it will usually be made of solid wood.
Here is an idea for your country primitive bedroom. Think about how you can incorporate two beds in one frame. That would make it into a cabin type of setting. You could make it more fun by putting in a desk with a chair in the middle and add wooden shelves on either side.
There are many country primitive bedroom furnishings that have been around forever. These include chests of drawers and dressers. It is interesting to note that many of the older styles were made of wood. Pine was most popular and there were a lot of them around at one time.
The next thing you will need to do is pick up some country pine furniture. A lot of people feel that pine should not be used for furniture but some people are stuck in the old-fashioned days. This is when country pine bedroom furniture began to take shape. Some people like the look of the log cabin pieces but others like the more modern look of the box type. There are so many choices that you will have a hard time choosing. This is why I usually recommend getting some help when choosing this kind of furniture.
The final thing you will need to put together is some furniture to match the bed. You can really have some fun here and pick out everything from the bedroom. You will have to think about the size and where the items will go. If you have a small bedroom, you might want to avoid the huge dressers and put the items in a way where it won’t look out of place.
Remember, this is all country primate stuff so make sure you plan it out before you start shopping. The last thing you want to do is go home and find out that you don’t like it. Sometimes you will have to compromise and work with what you have. Once you get the country primitive bedroom furniture in place the rest of the decorating should come naturally. You will probably even fall in love with it. Happy hunting!
When choosing furniture, keep in mind what you will be using it for. If you are planning on putting a desk in place in the evening you may want to go with a dresser that has drawers. If you plan on putting a chest of drawers in then you might want to look into something like a hutch. Maybe you are into something more modern than wood. No matter what it is your needs should dictate the type of things that you choose to put in your little hideaway.
Something else you will need to consider is lighting. As I said above, if you are using this primitive country bedroom as a study then you probably wouldn’t want to use a lot of lights. However, if you are trying to make this the perfect room for your family then you will need to use as much light as possible.
As far as storage goes, this all comes down to personal preference. You want something that makes storage easy. Something like a chest of drawers will give you more storage space. You can also add other items like hampers, wicker baskets, and coat racks. As long as you have enough shelving for your items, there is no way you couldn’t create a country primitive bedroom that will make you the envy of other cabin dwellers.
