Cozy country house style is preferred by many people. If you love something rural and rustic, you can learn more about the half-timbered and beautify his apartment in half-timbered style or beautify. Because this work is very elaborate and requires a pretty good craftsmanship, certain knowledge and skills as well as professional advice and support. A simple example of this is the design of the walls. The plaster must not hit the wood directly in this type of wall embellishment. The reason for this is that wood is a natural building material that changes its shape and volume over time. This can cause unwanted cracks in the newly designed walls.

The half-timbered wall is therefore the basis of every rustic home decor and who wants to design his home after the half-timbered style, should first design the walls. Truss needs structure. For this one needs a framework pattern of natural wood, which is attached to the wall. In between there are free spaces. These should then be filled with plaster. Anyone who has manual skills and possesses appropriate specialist knowledge could also do this task on his own. Otherwise, it is advisable to seek out a trusted, detailed craftsman who will diligently complete this work so that there are no cracks or cracks in the walls later. The plaster is mixed with a special tool, with the so-called Quast and unevenly mounted on the wall, so that the typical rustic look is achieved. Subsequently, a mineral primer is first painted on, before the fine fine plaster can also be applied uneven on the wall. This achieves the typical rustic effect of half-timbered walls.

Nowadays, many people want to move away from the hectic society to the stress of everyday life. Half-timbered houses are a great way to do that. They create a fairytale cosiness by offering a simple, historic living, which is currently in great demand.
Table and chairs in vintage look
As far as the furnishing of half-timbered houses is concerned, there is a lot of freedom for creativity and style. Depending on your taste, you can now furnish your rustic half-timbered house in a classic, country-house style. Typical country house furniture will complete the rural ambience. Of course you can also interpret the whole thing a bit more modern by choosing furniture in the currently very trendy shabby chic as well as vintage style. Old and new belong together here. A few unique items such as chairs, stools, tables and chests from the flea market or some extravagant chests and boxes that can be bought from the flea market will feel at home in a half-timbered house. The intentional signs of wear on the furniture and the other home accessories from the old days will give the overall picture of the rooms an individual, cozy atmosphere and lots of country house charm.

This is how the modern pieces of furniture are properly staged, because in addition to the rather unconventional wall design, they quickly become the visual highlight in the room. The result is a unique composition with a bizarre charm in which old and new merge into each other.

Another option in the room design in country house style is to be inspired by the Mediterranean style of furnishing. Even the English country style with the typical, heavy and massive leather upholstered furniture offers an excellent opportunity for the furnishing of the half-timbered house. Straight cabinets with natural surfaces and natural, decorative accessories complete the overall atmosphere. The home accessories should be made of authentic material, thereby creating more authenticity in the rooms of the half-timbered house. Natural materials such as clay, ceramics, stone and wood are the elements that perfect and enhance this style. Flea markets and small shops for antiques are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for this, because just there you can browse for antique pieces for his home. You can not only enjoy the charm of the newly acquired piece. Often, great bargains are already half the fun. And even more - you can find beautiful, fancy things for the design at home that are much more in keeping with your style and your personal notion of coziness than a brand new set-up.
