Decorating your log cabin can feel like a minefield if you’re stumped for ideas. There are a variety of ways you can decorate your log cabin to make it a more inviting space.

These include but are not limited to:

Install Warm Lighting

Installing lighting can transform the entire space of your log cabin, as no one wants to be sat in a dark and uninviting space for a long period of time. 

The right lighting can make a room feel warmer and a much nicer space to inhabit. After all, there’s a reason why fairy lights are so essential to the holiday season!

You should consider installing twinkly fairy lights, as well as warm lamps, and you could even go all out and install a grand chandelier if you have the budget for it.

Lighting doesn’t have to be super expensive, but when you realise how much of a difference it can make to a gloomy room, you’ll quickly feel much more at home.

Add Warm Furnishings 

There’s nothing quite as cozy as being next to a roaring fire and a big mug of hot tea on a winter’s day. Adding warm furnishings to your log cabin can do a world of good in making it an inviting space.

When it comes to decorating your log cabin, why not add a wood stove to warm up to? Alternatively, you could opt for a small electric fireplace that both warms the space and makes it more cozy.

When you add warm furnishings, you’ll be surprised how much it makes you want to inhabit the space whether it’s curling up with a good book or watching your favorite movie.

Add Plants And Foliage To Your Log Cabin

A great way to make your log cabin feel more lived in is to bring outside, indoors! Adding a few plants can breathe a new lease of life into your log cabin, and can also help to purify the air.

Adding flowers to your cabin can not only add a pop of color to the space, but is also an excellent way to make it feel more homey.

If you’re not going to be visiting your cabin to water real plants on a regular basis, then why not opt for fake plants or flowers? With the large variety of realistic fake plants available on the market, the options are endless!

Opt For Sleek And Modern Furniture 

If you’re looking to make your log cabin feel more like a modern home, then why not opt for sleek and modern furniture?

For instance, adding a leather sofa to the space is perfect for adding a contemporary feel to your log cabin. 

You can also mix modern pieces with more traditional furniture if you prefer a combination of old and new.

Invest In Blankets For Your Furniture 

No matter the season, you can never have enough blankets in your log cabin. You never know when the weather’s going to turn and it’s going to get chilly, and draping blankets over your furniture adds another cozy texture to the room.

Install Drapes Or Blinds To The Windows 

If you don’t already have drapes or blinds installed in your log cabin, it can feel quite drafty when the nights draw in and the temperature drops. 

Also, it’s common to feel exposed as soon as it gets dark if you’re not able to draw curtains or drapes.

Adding drapes or blinds is a great way to create a cozy vibe and add an element of privacy you wouldn’t otherwise have. This way, you can enjoy your evenings in your log cabin without having to worry about feeling exposed.

Add Statement Cushions To Your Furniture

A great way to bring a pop of color to your otherwise neutral log cabin is to add statement cushions to your couch and chairs.

Whether you opt for a bold, interesting pattern, or prefer block colors, adding cushions is a great way to reinvigorate the look of your cabin and saves you from replacing your furniture entirely!

Reupholster Your Couch

If you’re in the market for a new couch when you’re redecorating, but can’t find anything that you like as much as the one you have, why not try reupholstering your couch?

This is another great way to add different textures to your log cabin that you wouldn’t otherwise have, and can be a much cheaper alternative to replacing the entire couch.

Reupholstering your couch is also a great way of modernizing an old couch, especially if you’re trying to achieve a more contemporary feel in your cabin.

Add Bookcases To The Walls

Another great way to decorate your log cabin is to add several bookcases to the walls.

You can dress your bookcases however you please. A great way to decorate your bookcases is to fill them with your favorite books and trinkets that make a house feel like a home. 

Search for photo frames, vases, and other possessions or mementos you’ve kept throughout your life that work with the color scheme that you opt for in the room. 

If your color scheme permits, you can even color coordinate your books to add a gorgeous rainbow touch to your walls.

In Summary

There are so many ways you can make your log cabin a more comfortable and inviting space to spend time in. From simple touches to getting super creative, the options are truly endless!

Hi, my name is Mandy Carlos, and I moved into my own tiny home around 5 years ago. My home is situated on my own plot of land in the country, and for the most part, I live off grid. Living in a tiny home has been incredible, and I love being away from the fast pace of city living. While tiny homes are becoming increasingly popular, there are still many people that are unaware of the best accessories, and necessities to purchase. This is why I decided to set up Clothesline Tiny Home, to share my experiences with others.
