Cabin interiors are some of the most beautifully designed types of living spaces. Whether or not you agree, it is undeniable the amount of character and uniqueness that is present in the walls, floors, ceilings, and other structures in the house. Unlike the common drywall and paint technique, a lot more thought goes into a cabin and a lot more personalizable aspects are available. Just think about it, in a normal sheetrocked house, every square inch of wall is the same. It is man-made factory processed panels of gypsm slapped up with compound. Sure, it's an affordable way to get the job done, but it's hard to get over the fact of an alternative method is just so much more homey and full of character.
Traditional, rustic cabins are formed with real, virtually unrefined, pieces of the wilderness itself. No two individual logs will ever be the same, and no area of the surface will look 100% similar. The interior and exterior walls are formed by the same thick logs. While you can't necessarily customize with color, you do get to choose the type of wood and also have the option of different stains which can drastically increase the darkness of the wood. But most people who choose to build a log cabin see and understand the beauty in the unaltered.
Modern cabins, on the other hand, keep the exterior and interior walls separate. This enables them to opt for the more flat wood paneling for the walls and ceilings. Because of this, they are a bit more customizable than the traditional cabins are. They allow for a cleaner, more symmetric look. The 100% truly natural look is squandered a bit, but they are beautiful nonetheless.
Traditional cabins are more organic, while modern/contemporary cabins are more refined.
Take a look at this photo collection of both rustic and modern cabins. Whichever you prefer, I think everyone can agree that there is blissful beauty present in both styles and they are a wonderful sentiment to the great outdoors!
