How To Style With Ranch Decor

When you think of ranch decor, do you think cowboys and masculinity? Or are you drawn by the rustic, natural elements inspired by acres of land?

Whether you live on a grassy plain in Colorado, or follow the Pioneer Woman on her dreamy cozy ranch in Oklahoma, you have inspirations surrounding you to style with ranch decor. The best part is, you don’t have to be a cowboy to love this decorating theme.

Here’s how to bring ranch style into your own home:

Flooring

To get this look you should start with the floors. Rustic Style Laminate flooring is an affordable way to achieve the wood inspired look and comes in many richly colored options that would be perfect for a ranch style home.

Ceiling

A lot of ranch style homes have exposed wood beams along the ceilings and doorways. Faux beams can be added to any ceiling or doorframe to create this look. Make sure the beams are stained in the same or coordinating color to flooring.

Dining Room

Ranch style homes usually have a large dining room that can feed a crowd. Start with a rustic would farmhouse style table and ensure that there is plenty of seating around it. If there is an island or bar, provide additional seating in the form of metal-framed stools.

Kitchen

Even if you don’t have a large kitchen you can still give it a ranch style feel. Accessorize with usable items in natural materials, such as wooden bowls, rustic serving trays, and metal knobs and handles. A beautiful detail in a ranch style kitchen is the sink. Upgrade yours to a ceramic or stainless steel farmhouse or apron style sink.

Furniture

Choose wooden furniture and stick to natural, warm, and richly colored wood tones. The key is to keep most pieces as natural as possible. Have them embellished or accessorized with metal accents to achieve a rustic meets industrial feel. Leather sofas and chairs pair perfectly with this style as well.

The Details

The last step for achieving a ranch style look in your home is the details. Accessorize with natural elements such as colorful woven rugs, iron/metal accessories (horseshoes anyone?), and more. Wooden details, such as rustic frames or tree branch lamps work well too. Incorporate animal elements in the artwork (think herding cattle or horses on the range) and cowhide print in the accent pillows and throws.
