Tip On How To Add Vintage Decor

So, you’ve decided to kick it back old school with one of your rooms (or perhaps your whole home!), but you aren’t sure where to start? Or are you considering it but concerned about the amount of time and work you’d have to put into it in order to do it well? Don’t worry! We’ve got some tips that can help you to get a vintage look in your home that will appeal to you and everyone who comes through your door.

The first rule of vintage

the walls are the most important part. This seems odd because, in most setups, the most important part is the furniture or the flooring. But no, you need to start with the walls for a vintage look and work your way out. The vintage theme thrives in the wallpaper of the time period. Symmetrical patterns and floral designs in pastels (pale pinks, blues, and greens) defined the style of the era, and without those sorts of colors and designs on your walls, you won’t be able to achieve the look easily.

Then, you can work on the floors

You don’t necessarily have to change the floor in order to capture the vintage look, but it can definitely add to it. The best way for you to do this is to get wood floors. The wood will give your home that rustic feel and, on top of that, wood floors are a lot easier to take care of than other types of floors. Some people will even put a shag rug in to add to that vintage feel.

Another mark of a vintage home is that everything, from the furniture to the curtains, is homemade or appears to be homemade. You can have a lot of fun with this part, especially if you enjoy doing crafts.

You’ll want to hit up your local flea market and check out some of the vintage items that they have available there. You can also repair the furniture you find and give it a new lease on life. Wooden furniture is definitely the best in order to keep with the look.

Achieving a vintage look in your home can actually be a lot of fun if you’re willing to put the time into it. It can also help you to showcase what you like to do, and you may be able to get a new hobby or two out of the process as well.
