Russian country style is rather strict and does not welcome frills. Its basis is simplicity. The peculiarity of this direction is the active use of materials from wood. The wooden floor will create coziness: the previously used boards, previously restored, will work well. It is better not to use parquet, but in such rooms as the bathroom, hall and kitchen, decorative stone or tile is laid. However, use these materials in moderation, since the task of the style is to give a feeling of warmth, and the stone can, on the contrary, take it away. The ceiling can also be wooden. A characteristic feature - plastered beams under the ceiling.
Tip: An integral element of the interior in the Russian style is a chest. You can store clothes in it or use it as a bedside table.
