Retro Home Decor

The first glance at the house, pulls out of the way of finishing the walls and roof. Agree, the cottage is unlikely to be similar to the construction of the XIX-th century XVI11 if its pristine walls are smooth, and the roof has some “merry” hue. To comply with the canons of retro style, it is best to use the same materials and coatings that were available 100-200 years ago, or imitating their modern counterparts.

But the walls and roof-is only the beginning. It is important to remember that all the elements of home decor should correspond to a single style, because lack of attention to detail can spoil the impression of the whole structure. Therefore it is necessary to emphasize the appearance of windows and doors, and even the various decorative elements. And because architecture is always perceived in a complex with the surrounding landscape, we should not forget about the fences and small outbuildings.

Today, ordering the project of a country house, the clients are increasingly turning to the “retro” style, now it has become much more accessible thanks to the emergence in the range of standard (ie, serially produced in an industrial scale, and not the piece and to order) lining materials, allowing give the home a historic surroundings. Therefore, to emphasize the status and viability of the landlord can without exorbitant costs for the finish: only need to choose the right components are available and appropriate for style.

Metal Roofing

Roof-one of the major architectural elements of the house, forming its surroundings. Roofs of old mansions, where there are sufficient funds in the homeowner was taken cover copper. Her illustrious shine-a kind of business card of homeownership.

Copper is used as a roof covering since time immemorial, but has retained its relevance to this day. This material has always been considered “elite”, largely due to its considerable cost: up to 3 000 rubles per square meter. Even for the most successful members of the middle class of this amount may be hard to lift, especially considering that it is necessary to add more and the cost of roofing. In addition, many homeowners say that copper roofs are attracted radiant appearance was his they consider the main advantage of copper. In practice, however, this roofing material, despite its durability, fade and fade in a few years due to oxidation: familiar to us greenish color of old roofs-not that other, as an oxide, is formed on the surface of a copper roof.

The modern market offers homeowners an alternative solution. Today copper roofing has become much more accessible thanks to the metal tile roofing and other materials made of steel with polymer coating, which exactly mimics the natural copper, but three times as affordable. According to experts, this material, unlike copper, retain its original attractive gloss and brightness for more than half a century of life.

A similar effect is achieved through the use of a manufacturer of specially designed copper-colored dye to include microparticles, providing the characteristic luster. In addition, the use of the above-mentioned reflective particles reduces the heating of the roof, so that the hot summer is possible to create a much more comfortable microclimate in the attic. Long-term preservation of the color of roofs ensures its high resistance to UV radiation.

Long service life of roofing materials provide high corrosion resistance of the steel plate (class 1 galvanizing steel, 275 g / m2), as well as the excellent protective properties of bilateral polymer coating (30 microns / 25 microns) and a plastic layer of soil that is resistant to the fold. Due to this fact the coated steel may be used including for traditional standing seam roofing, paving the room for imagination followers of authentic solutions.

To form a complete image of the roof can be decorated with additional elements, for example, decorative fences, caps and weather vanes, giving the structure of personality traits. A good addition to the copper-colored roof is a steel weather vane or windsock, covered with black powder paint. Universal mount makes it easy to mount the accessory such as the roof of the main house and pavilions, baths or any other outbuildings.

Decorative Finishing Walls

Today, as a couple of centuries ago, the tree still remains one of the basic building materials in the world. Wooden house (especially if it was built of logs uncalibrated) does not require additional elements that emphasize its affiliation period. However, if the house was built of modern materials, to give it a “historical” features available on the market allow the decorative elements and coatings.

The first option-plastered walls, adorning their diverse moldings of plaster or painted polyurethane elements. The second option-to use for facing slabs of the facade, imitating natural stone or weathered brick (depending on the direction retrostilya). Different variants of plaster, stucco and synthetic coatings on the market so much that the recommendations of their choice-this is a topic for another article.

It is advantageous in the cottages in the style of the past, it looks decorative imitation of half-timbered structures. This design decision is likely to appeal to fans of European classics. Decorative elements that mimic the girders, mounted directly on the plastered walls.

To solve both functional and decorating tasks help facade or individual elements of steel siding with a polymer coating, pattern and texture imitating natural wood.As an example, siding «L-bar” coated. This lining material is designed for continuous facade of country houses (including hinged ventilated) and for filing the roof eaves. This solution is perfect for finishing facades of country estates and allow the house to keep a fresh appearance for 30-50 years. Imitation of natural wood will help the steel facing a serious competitor to other finishing materials. Indeed, in contrast, for example, vinyl siding, «L-bar” is not deformed by the heat, the cold does not break and does not fade in the sun, but from wood veneer of his distinguished incombustibility and simplicity in operation.

Installing Windows Doors

It is obvious that in the old days in the homes have not been used or plain plastic windows, nor the same boring metal doors. However, to comply with the “historical” style in the decoration of his home did not have to use authentic solutions. For example, many manufacturers of PVC windows now offer a variety of color frames and PVC window profiles, imitating natural wood, it has become a standard feature in the range.

Wood energy-efficient windows are more expensive and require more care and with time (approximately 5-10 years), when the protective lacquer coating izotretsya, windows lose their appearance and will need restoration. I would also like to warn homeowners who believe that the wooden frame are more environmentally friendly. For their manufacturing laminated veneer lumber impregnated with antiseptics and flame retardants to protect against insects, rot and fire. Accordingly, their ecology such material even inferior to the PVC profile.

Choosing technologies for inexpensive decorating doors today is not so wide, but in the range of many manufacturers of metal doors, you can find a model that simulates wood trim, and more expensive solutions can even be decorated with natural veneer.

Proper Intake and the Surrounding Landscape

To successfully enter the house in a “historical” style in the surrounding area, it is not necessary to pay big money for the author landscape design infield and individual projects of small architectural forms. The old manor house and look equally well in a modern well-kept park, and in a natural forest or a corner of the field. And to the buildings in the gardening area still apply the same considerations as to the big house. But special attention should be paid to the future homeowner on the fence.

A typical pattern that can be observed in many Russian cottage settlements-exquisite homes in the details matching your style, enclosed by three-meter metal fences typical, not in harmony with them either in style or even color.Unfortunately, such a structure can almost completely negate all the efforts to give the house and the area of ​​the spirit of the old manor.

As an alternative to the typical blue professional flooring for the fences, you can use materials that mimic the natural wood, for example, profiled sheets already mentioned coated. By the way, it also comes with a cover, imitating natural stone, which extends the possibilities of decorating the site. Unlike short-lived, in spite of modern paints and varnishes, wood, fence shaped coated sheets will retain their appeal and functionality of up to 50 years.
