Follow these tips to create a truly your own space to personalise the space with your favourite house and homewares, as well as some classic sofas and pieces of furniture.
The Lazyboy Furniture brand provides a range of options to create that perfect relaxed or modern country style in your home.
1. Use Raked Ceilings
Raked ceilings are a type of ceiling that slopes or angles downward from one end of the room to the other. This type of ceiling is often found in loft spaces, attic rooms, and other high-ceilinged areas. They can create a unique and visually interesting architectural feature– giving a country living vibe.
Raked ceilings often allow for the installation of windows at the upper end of the room. This maximises natural light and creates a sense of spaciousness, which is necessary for country living spaces.
2. Pick Rustic Sofas
A rustic sofa can help to create the ultimate cosy country living space by adding a touch of charm and character to the room. Rustic furniture is often made from natural materials like wood and leather. This helps to create a sense of connection with the outdoors and enhances the rustic charm of the space.
In addition, rustic furniture often has a vintage look, which can add interest and depth to the space. When selecting a rustic sofa for your space, consider choosing a piece that complements the overall country design. Finally, don’t forget to add cosy touches, such as plush throw pillows and soft blankets, to make the sofa even more comfortable and inviting.

3. Choose Natural Fabrics
Natural fabrics, such as cotton, and linen, are known for their warmth and comfort. They can help create a cosy, homely feel in any space and are particularly well-suited to country-style decor. Natural fabrics are also eco-friendly and sustainable, which can add to a room’s overall atmosphere. In addition, natural fabrics are durable and long lasting, making them a worthy investment.

You can match the Canyon recliner with the 2 and 3 seater recliner sofas from Lazyboy to complete the look in your living room.
4. Embrace Large Windows and High Ceilings
Large windows and high ceilings can create a spacious and open feel in a country living space. The natural light that floods through the windows makes the space feel bright and inviting.
Similarly, the high ceilings help create a sense of grandeur and openness. This can help create a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere well-suited to country living.
5. Use House Homewares to Create a Country Feel
Paintings can help create a country living space by adding colour, texture, and visual interest to the white walls. They can help to personalise the space and make it feel more homely and inviting.
In a country-style living space, paintings of rural scenes create a sense of connection to the surrounding landscape. Similarly, still paintings such as fruit baskets and flowers will enhance the living space to create a country living vibe.
In addition to paintings, mirrors add textures to walls. They reflect light making the rooms feel brighter and bigger. To give your space a country living vibe, use mirrors with rustic frames. They also help to add elegance and sophistication to your living space, elevating the overall design.
