Log cabins provide peaceful woodland retreats for some and full-time homes for others. Forms of decorating a log cabin can take on anything from an upscale modern look to a country woodland theme. Regardless of the way you intend to decorate your space, the addition of carpet can add a feel of warmth and provide a soft walking surface within a room. You may choose to place carpet throughout the entire cabin or only in select rooms. Color choices that work in a log cabin are nearly limitless.
Dark colors work well in a cabin with interior log or exposed wood walls. Dark shades of carpet contrast the light color of the finished wood. If you’re living in a cabin where you spend lots of time outside or have young children who are coming and going from the outside to the inside, dark colors don’t show the dirt as much as lighter colors would. Hunter green, navy blue and crimson fit with the natural vibe of many log cabins and add a rustic vibe to the rooms.
Light carpet colors are versatile and can work in any room of your log cabin. Neutral shades like beige and tan go with all furniture types and decor styles. If you are aiming for an ultra-modern vibe in your cabin, choose a white carpet. For children’s rooms in the cabin, colors like lavender or light pink can go in a girl’s room and light blue or pale green can work for a boy’s or a guest's room.
Multi-colored carpets are another option for log cabins. Carpets with dark plaid patterns or stripes can fit with a woodland style. Choose this type for a game room or movie room within the cabin. You can also find carpet with various patterns on it like animals that would fit with the vibe of many log cabins. These patterns add an element of visual interest to the room.
