BRAX Roofing gaithersburg

The people of the internet are embracing Cottagecore, and it’s captivating! 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, cute tucked-away cottages, fresh-baked bread, plaid dresses, dungarees, rolling, dewy hills, and essentially a simpler life.

Slowly but surely, people have embraced this aesthetic into their everyday lives. One can see it in 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.

Roofing Materials

When wandering through the countryside, you’ll recognize that rooftops tend to look a little more rugged than those found in the suburbs. To make your home and your rooftop look a little more Cottagecore-esque, we would suggest installing roofing materials like cedarwood, slate, or tile. These roofing materials have been around for eons and are traditionally used in the countrysides all across Europe.

Cottagecore enthusiasts tend to gravitate towards more natural materials that complement the natural environment. Cedarwood, slate, and tile offers homeowners unmatched curb appeal, and over time they develop a rugged appearance that adds great character to homes.

Gutter Installation

Copper gutters are one of the most durable and sturdy gutter systems available to homeowners, perfect for the Cottagecore aesthetic. When it comes down to your home’s gutters, a copper gutter system will be more aesthetically pleasing than any other type on offer; this is thanks to their warm, rich tones.

The warm red and brown tones of the copper add a beautiful finish to your home’s appearance. Should you find that oxidization has taken over, don’t worry. A lovely layer of blue-green patina will coat any problems areas, which will help sustain it for much longer.

Window Design

Cottages rarely have large, expansive windows. Instead, they make use of gable, dormer, single-hung, or casement windows. Because cottages are often in the countrysides where temperatures drop drastically in the nighttime, these homes try to keep the warm air inside and refrain from installing oversized windows.
