Eclectic Design – Using Rustic Hardware and Antiques
Have you ever spent too much time fretting over whether or not your home’s decorations and interior design are in line with current styles? Then we’ve got some good news for you—it’s time to stop worrying. Why? Because eclectic design is in, and eclectic design has only one rule: There are no rules!
What Is Eclectic Design and Rustic Hardware?
As the name implies, eclectic design represents the ultimate freedom of choice in design. Instead of worrying about whether or not that neat cabinet you’ve found matches the same period and design style as your coffee table, eclectic design gives you personal license to put the two together anyway. For anyone who just wants to express themselves without worrying about current styles and trends, eclectic design is a godsend.
Of course, just because eclectic design gives you personal freedom in your design choices, it doesn’t mean it’s a visual free-for-all. You should still be conscious about how things look when paired together, and how everything put together affects the visual flow of a room. In particular, many followers of eclectic design have latched on to rustic, vintage items for their unadorned, “goes with anything” qualities.
A big trend seen with eclectic design is the use of sliding track hardware and ‘barn’ doors. Sliding door track systems allow you to open up a space, such as a kitchen or living room, while still getting the overall look and style you want. Of course, it is important to ensure that your sliding door hardware is high quality and installed properly.
The Benefits of Rustic Design
When someone says the word, “rustic,” the image that probably comes to your mind is one of wood furniture, stone fireplaces, and natural materials. If “rustic” sounds too quaint, the term “natural” works just as well. While our ancestors certainly think of design choices as charmingly simple and natural, many people living in the 21st century have embraced their design aesthetic for just those reasons. With the rise of eclectic design, in particular, people are embracing the charm and visual appeal of antiques and old-fashioned furnishings.
For those looking to transform outdoor buildings on their property, such as a barn, take advantage of these trends with barn door sliding hardware. A sliding barn door track results in a sleek appearance and a rustic door adds that natural look to your property. You can get the barn door hardware you need to complete your project by working with RW Hardware.
