If you haven’t yet noticed, Cottagecore has taken the internet by storm. At its essence cottagecore, is a nod to the traditional English countryside, encouraging a more sustainable existence.
The aesthetic embraces images of the old countryside, fresh-baked bread, plaid dresses and dungarees, rolling, dewy hills, and essentially a simpler life. Slowly but surely, people have started to embrace this aesthetic into their wardrobes, travel plans, home interiors, and lifestyles.
If this sounds like a dream to you, carry on reading as we detail how you can introduce the aesthetic into your own home.
When meandering through the countryside, you’ll most likely find more rugged roofing materials than you would in the suburbs. To make your roofing system a little more cottagecore-esque, we would suggest installing roofing materials like cedarwood, slate, or tile. These roofing materials are some of the oldest roofing materials on the market and are commonly used in the traditional European and English countryside.
When it comes to cottagecore, enthusiasts tend to gravitate towards more natural things that blend in with the natural environment. Cedarwood, slate, and tile offer homeowners incredible curb appeal, and over time they develop a sort of rugged appearance which adds great character to your home.
When it comes to your home’s gutter system, a copper gutter system would fit in the most with a cottagecore aesthetic home. Copper is one of the most durable and sturdy gutter systems available to homeowners.
The warm red and brown tones of the copper add a beautiful finish to your home’s appearance. Should your copper gutter system encounter any oxidization, a lovely layer of blue-green patina will coat the problem area, sustaining your gutter system, and prolonging its lifespan.
When thinking about cottages, you’ll notice that they don’t have large, expansive windows. Instead, they make use of gable, dormer, single-hung, and casement windows. Because cottages are often in the cold, English countryside, these homes try to keep the warm air inside and refrain from installing more oversized windows.
