Rustic house ideas for urban homes

timber-sliding-sash-windows rustic house ideas

Just because you live in the city doesn’t mean you can’t have a country feel in your home. When you think of city living, modern trendy apartments and renovated townhouses come to mind. However, by choosing traditional materials and styles you can have a slice of country living wherever you are. The windows and doors you choose can certainly make a difference when it comes to the feel of your home.

Material is key

Timber is a desirable material for homeowners for many reasons. The rustic feel it gives is one of the main draws. Used for centuries in windows and doors, it can easily create a traditional feel in any home regardless of age and location. Add wooden windows and doors to your home in the centre of town and instantly feel like you’re in a country cottage. Timber is extremely durable, weatherproof and thermally insulating. So not only does it look good but it provides perfect protection for your home against the cold. You don’t need to compromise on performance or style with timber.

Colours that bring out a new side to your home

Easy to personalise, you can paint timber in any colour you like. If you want to continue the heritage feel, opt for pastels, creams and pale colours like Chartwell Green. However, there’s nothing stopping you from going bright and bold with reds and blues if these suit your style.

Our extensive timber range

Our windows and doors are available in hardwood, softwood, redwood or oak to give you the choice that fits your home best. With exceptionally low u-values and secure locks, they will keep your home protected against the elements and intrusion. You can have ever popular timber casement windows or choose the sliding sash style for that authentic look. Our timber door range includes entrance, French, bi-fold and sliding patio doors. If more space is what your home needs, our timber conservatories and orangeries could be perfect.

Rustic ideas that can transform a city home

Other ideas to add a rustic feel to your home include incorporating timber elements to other areas of your home. Ceiling beams, wooden floors and worktops in the kitchen are all easy ways to transform the interior of your home. You could have a thoroughly modern home with a cosy country kitchen that lets you stand out from the rest. If you don’t have a lot of outside space; bring it inside with a herb garden on your kitchen windowsill. Bifold doors can open up your space and make a garden feel bigger by making it continuous with your home.
