Rustic Area Rugs for Your Log or Timber Home

Log cabin rugs, not always easy to find, but well worth the effort, give your rustic décor a finishing touch.

My husband and I searched for months until we found the perfect rustic area rug for our great room.  We found that there are rustic area rugs with nubby designs, cabin rugs with wildlife themes and area rugs with abstract designs that go with a natural décor.

Log cabin rugs work nicely in your great room, dining room or in rustic country bedrooms.  Choosing the right rustic area rug for a room can bring your theme together and help you create the look that you want for that room…

This woven area rug would add color and interest to a room, and it could become the center of attention.

Types of Cabin Rugs

When shopping for rustic rugs, you’ll find that there are a number of choices. Choosing different kinds of rugs will add interest to your rooms:

  • Woven rugs – The photo above shows an example of woven area rugs. Many rustic area rugs that are woven are handmade.
  • Hooked rugs – Beautiful hand made hooked rugs come with theme designs like deer, moose, pine cones, horses and bears. If you are crafty, you can make your own hooked rugs for your log or timber home.
Log cabin rugs can be braided, like this cute moose area rug.

  • Area rugs with themes – Difficult to find, this kind of area rug can become the center of a room, pulling together your theme.
  • Braided area rugs – Years ago braided rugs were made by pioneer women, who used rags and scraps of cloth to make the braids.  Braided area rugs are still popular today in homes with rustic decor.
  • Oriental or Persian rugs – Because they have an antique or older look, these rugs also go well in a rustic lodge or log cabin.  These rugs give an Old Money or sophisticated look to a rustic lodge, without being showy or flashy. Cabin rugs add softness to a sitting area or great room, but they also keep your rustic décor intact.
