Modern Cabin Homes

There's nothing more relaxing than snuggling up by a wood fire in Winter and even better when you have natural forest and forest life outside your window.  Modern Cabin Homes are all about keeping in with the surroundings and what wildlife brings.  Think natural timbers to reflect the natural elements outside.... rustic timbers, earthy stone and brick, animal furs and skins (real or faux).  Or add an Industrial feel to your Modern Cabin Home with mixing these classic materials with accents of metals and concrete.  And if are over dark timber and want to lightening things up, then opt to paint all or some timber out white for a more fresher, brighter and cleaner look.  Whichever your style, we've found some Modern Cabin Homes which we are sure will leave anyone wanting to escape to and to hibernate in during this Winter.

Tip: Modern Cabin Homes are about feeling cozy and creating a place where you want to relax and unwind.  By selecting dark rustic timbers, larger sized pieces of furniture and lusious fabrics (i.e. wools, knits, furs, felts, aged leathers) will help to make your space warm, inviting and cozy.  If you are working with raw rustic structural timbers, it's best to protect them from all elements by applying a timber coating.  Cabots Cabothane Clear Matt is an ideal coating to use if you aren't wanting to affect the natural appearance and dullness of raw timber since it has little sheen.  It's also a polyurethane coating, so very durable, hardwearing and a fast drying varnish.
