Wood is one of the best materials you can use to decorate your home with. Not only is it a natural choice, but it comes in many diverse styles and colours and it is sustainable, classic and sophisticated to boot.
Not only that, but you can create a wide range of looks from the rustic to the opulent using wood in different ways.
If you want to incorporate more wood into your interior decor, there are endless ways that you can go about doing so, which is why we’ve put together this quick guide to using wood in various ways in your home…
The great thing about wood is that it is so versatile, which means that you can do pretty much anything you like with it.
It would then be a shame to stick to the same old, same old and create a home look that everyone else has, it’s far more rewarding to get creative and do something unique with the wood you use.
Whether you turn a tree trunk into a one of a kind stool, use branches for hanging tapestries or create your own ornaments out of a chunk of wood, do something different with wood and your home will be all the better for it.
Create a Classic Kitchen
One of the best places to use wood in the home is undoubtedly in the kitchen.
The kitchen typically has lots of cupboards and drawers as well as shelves, storage units and pieces of furniture, so there are lots of opportunities to use wood.
Not only that, but wood is easy to wipe down and clean which is definitely a boon.
One of the best ways to use wood in the kitchen is by creating bespoke shaker kitchens which really show off the wood and its unique natural grain in all of its glory. It’s classic and beautiful and you can stain the wood in a variety of colours so that it always matches your decor.
On the Wall
If you’re looking for an interesting way to decorate your walls and you’re tired of simply giving the space a new coat of paint or applying the same wallpaper than everyone else has, why not use planks of wood to decorate your walls instead?
It’s something that few people do these days, which means that your home will be unique, and you can choose different woods/colours to match your style.
The best way to do this is by covering the bottom half of your walls with planks of wood and then painting the upper portion, but experiment to see what works best for you.
Wood is also great for accessorising and one of the best ways to use it is by collecting up driftwood or logs and then transforming them into photo frames to hang on your wall and frame your precious memories. It’s easier to do than you might think, and gives your rooms a rather unique style.
