Are You Remodeling Your Family Room with a Western Theme?

Posted on: 7 October 2019

If you are getting to remodel your family room, that probably means that it has received a lot of wear and tear over the years, right? Maybe you have just been waiting for your children to get a little bit older before you start the remodeling project. 

No matter the reason that you are not remodeling your family room, if you've chosen a western theme, you are in for some really enjoyable shopping excursions. Do you have a remodel plan already? If not, from selecting handmade western style furniture to selecting the other decor, here are some ideas that might help you to establish a fun and unique setting.

Start With Handmade Western Style Furniture 

Maybe it was seeing handmade western style furniture in a store that inspired you to remodel your family room with that theme in the first place. Think of the furniture pieces you'll want for the room and go from there.

For example, perhaps you want a setting with traditional sofas and occasional chairs. Or, maybe instead of traditional chairs, maybe you have decided to go with heavy western style rocking chairs. Look for heavy wooden furniture that has intricate carving as part of the design. For example, hand-carved stars or steer horns might be part of the design carved into heavy wood.

The upholstery is important, too. For example, do you want leather upholstery? Denim is another good choice for your western style furniture. Or, go the extra mile and have cowhide as the upholstery. Don't forget a western-style shelf where you can display things like family photographs and western art.

Add Western Style Decor to the Room 

Are you repainting the walls of your family room? If so, consider faux painting them to look like denim or like worn leather. If you're not comfortable with doing the job yourself, a paint store will more than likely be able to provide contact information for professionals who do faux paintings.

Think of creative ways you can add interest to the western style family room. For example, even a worn pair of cowboy boots filled with silk wildflowers would add pizzaz to the room. Choose things like horse paintings or cowboy paintings for the wall. One really fun thing to do would be to take a picture of your kids wearing cowboy duds. Put the picture in a rustic frame and add it to your western style shelf.
