Want to make your house a home? Decorating with wood adds warmth and character to any room and can be restored to its former glory.
From mahogany to teak, sheesham, ash and oak, wood offers a unique combination of aesthetic appeal to your home and we can assure you that there’s no home that wouldn’t benefit from the style of wooden furniture. To help you choose the best wooden furniture for your home, we’ve put together the ultimate guide to wooden decor.
It’s time to take note the wonders of decorating with wood…
Why wood decor?
Not only does it look good, but wood can bring a sense of character, personality and warmth to your home. Eco-friendly and entirely natural, wood has the ability to completely transform the mood of a room and welcome in a more organic feeling.
One of the main positives to choosing wooden furniture is of course its strength and durability. Whichever wooden furniture you choose, it will age with grace for years to come and never look out of date, making it an excellent investment piece. Easy to clean and maintain, a regular wipe down with a cloth is all you need to do to keep it looking its best.
How to use decorative wood inside your home
From reclaimed wooden furnishings to carefully coloured wood finishes, there’s no end to how you can try the natural wood trend in your home. So, where should you begin? And how can you include wood in an already finished room?
Bringing nature inside your home can add a whole new atmosphere into your space and wooden furniture is becoming a massive hit with homeowners. The beauty of wood is that you can use it for almost any style and design in your home and it’ll still look stylish and comfy.
Starting in your bedroom is the easiest way to incorporate wooden furniture into your home. Complementary wooden furniture has the ability to make your room feel warm and cosy thanks to the natural character of the grain that’s present within the wood.
A wooden bed frame is a solid investment piece and requires little to no maintenance, meaning it can easily last a lifetime. Pair with matching bedside tables and wardrobes to finish the look.
In our eyes, the living room is the heart of the home. We spend so much time there with family and friends watching our favourite TV shows and enjoying each other’s company, so creating a warming and inviting space is a must.
Opt for high quality, solid wooden furniture that will stand the test of time and select a wood type and material that best reflects the look and feel you are trying to create. Oak living room furniture is strong, solid and will last a lifetime whilst walnut furniture can provide a more contemporary take on a classic design and will update your design aesthetic.
Wooden elements in your home don’t necessarily have to be big, stand out pieces. Add solid oak chopping boards into your home for an enhancing warming tone. For a more statement piece, choose matching bamboo bread bins, utensil holders and dish drainers. Complete your kitchen look with one of our wooden pendant lights.
Solid and reassuring, wooden dining room furniture will invite everyone to gather round your dining table, take a seat and enjoy a delicious meal together. A wooden dining table is a stunning way to add visual appeal to your dining room and will create a grand dining experience. Or opt for an extendable oak dining table to accommodate for those extra guests. Wooden dining chairs are also a great way to introduce a wooden element into your home. A lot of our wooden tables are available with matching chairs to complete your look.
