01 RUSTIC HOUSE FACADE IN STONE

The rustic house facades they always attract attention, they are the anteroom, the wrapping of what is to come inside the home. Therefore, it is important to choose a good facade both for aesthetics and for the insulation and care it brings to the home. In this article we show you an interesting variety of photographs so that you can enjoy designs that you will love.

One of the characteristics that enrich the rustic house facades is that a wide variety of materials can be used for its construction. On the one hand, we can find the use of materials natural and noble that provide a robust, solid and resistant appearance to the home. The simplest example is to imagine (or see the later photographs) a house covered on the outside with natural stone or containing exposed wooden beams that protrude. On the other hand, it is also important that you bear in mind that there are many people who reject the option of using this type of materials but they can achieve a beautiful and useful effect.

When choosing a rustic house facade for your home, it will be important to take into account where you are going to build it, since Geography and climate they usually go hand in hand. Therefore, we are not only talking about an aesthetic choice, but you should evaluate how the chosen material can favor your home and, therefore, if there is any material that could damage it.

Another feature that makes it a very interesting option is that a rustic facade is a timeless design, that no matter how many years pass it remains a true beauty, regardless of where it is located. Also, do not think that a rustic facade implies that a rustic decoration has to be maintained inside, not even further. Currently, we can find rustic facades with modern decorations and the combination is absolutely intoxicating, contrasts that further enhance both designs but that coexist wonderfully.

Another interesting detail is that the rustic facades they blend in very well with the environment but that does not imply that they cannot be modernized. It is becoming easier to see modern rustic facades, where not only stone or wood are predominant and fundamental elements, but also materials such as steel and glass are included that give it a more modern aspect, without reaching eccentricity, but keeping the appearance simple and harmonious.

Next, so that you can see the great variety of possibilities that you have in hand, we are going to show you an interesting collection of photographs of facades of rustic houses with which to enjoy and get ideas for your own home. To make it easier and more practical, we have divided it according to the materials chosen for the construction of rustic facades, so it will also be easier for you to see more ideas and then compare.

Stone facades

The stone you use will depend on where you are and the type of stone you can get. The most common are limestone crushed in the quarry or pre-cut stone blocks.

You can use different types or different sizes to, for example, frame the windows and doors or define the angles and edges of the walls.

You don’t have to use the same material for the entire front of the house. Stone facades also look very beautiful when combined with wood or cement, as is the case with this one, where the stones are only in the corners, and the rest of the walls are made with a mixture of sand and cement; on the ceiling, sturdy wooden beams.

Facades in Adobe

The adobe, bahareque or mud block is an ecological material, very economical and durable. It is ideal for those who have proposed to make their home with their own hands, as it is easy to prepare and apply.

Adobe can be the mainstay of the walls of the house or serve only as cladding to prefabricated and previously installed blocks. The result is a handcrafted appearance, with smooth lines and rounded finishes that make it look robust and harmonious at the same time.
