The hipster era has brought back rustic décor into fashion and this time it is so chic, modern and stunning, you will want to redecorate your space. The best part of this trend is that, not only is it easy on the pocket, it is super environment friendly as well. You can simply make use of any unwanted wood crates and panels, ropes, earthen pots etc and create a modern and yet sustainable rustic look. The options are endless!

Wooden Crate Furniture And Organizer
Used wood crates are your best bet when it comes to adding a touch of rustic feel to your patio, home or business. These boxes are extremely lightweight, sturdy and versatile and they are super cheap or even free. You can utilize them storing and organization as it is or give them a little makeover. With a bit of basic carpentering, it is extremely easy to make a display or storage unit, couch or bed out of these crates.

Wood Paneling, Accents And Beams
If you have any leftover wooden planks from a project or can forage, find or buy some discarded bits of wood, a beautiful hint of rustic chic can be chiseled into your space by converting these into wood paneling or accent. It draws the focus when one enters the room and creates an aura of warmth. If you can manage big enough pieces it is possible to give your space striking makeover with wooden beams.

Jute Rope Décor
Another super cheap and easy item that you can use is simple jute rope. Often discarded after packing, you can get them for practically nothing, if not free, or you can even procure bundles of them cheap at any hardware store. These ropes can be used in a number of decorative craft projects, to revamp old furniture or even paneling. You can also make use of ropes to wrap around a beam or wall, which could be a fascinating background for photos.

Neutral And Earthy Color Scheme
Neutral and soft earthy warm tones go the best when it comes to a rustic look. Be it for your walls, drapes or any other item in the space, try to opt for colors on this palette to give you that rich, warm, caressing feel. With the right décor the bare bricks look can be absolutely adorable as well. However, it is not a good idea to leave your bricks completely unpainted as the humidity can wreck havoc. Use a sealant to protect those walls.

A Final Touch Of Nature
Last but not the least, a touch of nature can completely transform your place and give it the right warmth and look. Get a few easy to maintain plants and strategically place them up around or hang if you do not want to give up the floor space. Not only do they look absolutely gorgeous, they also produce valuable oxygen and clean up the air. Do a little bit of research of soil and light needs, as well as safety if you have pets, before you buy any plant.

If you have been planning a makeover for your home or business and yet to settle on the vibe, the rustic look is the more happening trend and sustainable as well.
