Five Ideas to Make the Outside of Your Log Cabin Home Amazing
There is a saying: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” This is no truer than when it comes to any kid of decoration, especially landscaping. There are some amazing landscaping jobs that blow us away. You can see some of them here. And we think all of them are amazing. When it comes to a log cabin home, landscaping is a must. Since you are surrounded by nature, it only makes sense that you would want your shrubbery and yards to look as beautiful as the nature around you. But, landscaping is only one part of the process. There are many other ways to make the outside of your log cabin home look amazing and here’s our list of five of them here.
Nothing says calm like wind chimes. As they gently blow in the breeze, they make soothing sounds reminding us that all is safe and calm. There are many types of wind chimes. From solar to bell to wood, wind chimes come in many shapes, styles, sizes, and types of material. That means that they can fit into any decor and you can hang them off the porch roof or place them on a standing post in your yard. Wind chimes can make any log cabin home look great!
You have probably driven through a housing community and seen garden gnomes, wind socks, and other accessories that make a house stand out. Imagine how great your log cabin home would look with different accessories in your front yard, porch or garden.
We have seen thousands of log cabin homes in the time we have been fixing, maintaining, and refinishing, and have seen some creative garden and general accessories that make a home look amazing. Below are just some things we loved, and you may too.
● Mini water wells
● Bird houses
● Fake flamingos
● Mini statues
● And more!
Prep the Porch
In our opinion, a bare front porch is a waste of a porch. A porch filled with the right furniture and plants can become an inviting place to relax and entertain. Imagine a nice evening spent on the porch with candles lit, talking and staring off in the distance. You don’t have to go crazy either. A couple of wooden rocking chairs that match the outside of the house with a bench and a couple plants would work great. No matter what you choose, however, patio furniture and some plants can make the outside of your log cabin look great!
It is All about the Walkway
You probably will be coming and going from your log cabin home frequently while you are there. Your walkway can accent your log cabin home in a way other accessories cannot, especially because it is one of the first things people and you see when coming and going. Imagine a walkway with some beautiful lights along each side and hand-picked stones that make it look almost zen. Even a mailbox made of wood to match your log cabin home could make the walkway look better. Make your walkway into a welcoming way to come and go to help your log cabin home be amazing on the outside.
Steps are an important part of any home. When it comes to log cabin homes, steps are statement makers. They can be short and sweet or long and winding. Steps are a place where you can add some personality or flare to help compliment your home or to make your home stand out. For example, you may decide to have inspirational messages on the face of each step. Or, you may choose to put lights in the steps to make it safe at night and shine some light on the facade of your home. Or, you may choose to use the railings of your steps to hang some flower pots. So step it up, and make your steps mean something to help the outside of your log cabin home look amazing.
What matters is that your home is beautiful to you. There are many ways to make the outside of your log cabin home amazing. Among them are landscaping, garden accessories, chimes, patio furniture, and so much more. Call us if you need some ideas or a place to find that accent to make the outside of your home rock!
