Finishing Touch | A Place to Call Your Own

Log-home design doesn’t have to follow any one guideline. In fact, incorporating unique spaces into your design will help personalize your home, making it more your own. So whether you want a place to focus on your favorite hobby or somewhere to simply sit back and relax, be sure to add a space where you can just be yourself. Here’s a look at some of our favorite special spaces.

A Crafty Creation

Hobby rooms give you that extra space needed to work on what you love. These homeowners dedicated this room to their love of crafts. A large island offers plenty of space for working, and the many shelves and drawers provide storage space to keep their workspace tidy. A chandelier made of large twigs found in the yard contributes to the home’s rustic motif.

Spend the Night In

If you love to entertain or simply enjoy watching movies, a media room can help fulfill your cinematic desires. Risers situated under the second row establish stadium seating, while plush recliners and blankets guarantee comfortable viewing. For a more authentic experience, hang movie posters on the walls or an old-fashioned curtain above the large screen.

Get Your Game On

The game room is the go-to room for letting loose and having fun; when it comes to styling, it knows no bounds. This family opted for an elegant gathering space that features a pool table and sitting area. The black tones contrast with the light shades of the walls and floors, creating a modern edge. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow ample natural light while also offering a sweeping view of the countryside setting.

A Built-In Retreat

For an attractive, unique addition to your home’s design, carve out a sitting area under a large window. This built-in nook invites family and guests to gather together in a cozy atmosphere where they can enjoy each other’s company and take in the scenery.
