Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have seen a trend in homeowners returning to natural wood living spaces in their interior design , maybe in an attempt to reconnect with nature as families spend more time indoors. In recognition of this trend, we’ve come up with a few ways that you can use raw wood to tap into the calmness and peace that wooden interiors can provide.
Counter and Cabinets
Often the kitchen area is dominated by steel, stone, marble, and many other materials, just not wood. There has been a recent shift from the modelist all-white kitchen to natural wood, specifically in the kitchen cabinets. This can really warm up the kitchen and bring that loving feeling back into your life. If you are looking for a knotty, rustic aesthetic, try cedar and pine wood for your interior design!
Another design element that has been emerging as of late is exposed wooden ceilings. Again, it can help provide some sense of calmness and relaxation. The unique wooden board patterns on the ceiling can make the space feel homey and provide beauty inside your house that you typically can only find in nature.
On top of the natural beauty in these wooden ceilings, they also provide great functionality. Installing lighting and systems is much easier now because you can just place them behind the slats with a simple procedure of removing them, installing the system, and re-attaching the slats.
Wood can even be used on the wall to add some texture and comfort to places that wood isn’t really utilized. This is great to keep in mind for rooms that you don’t have a wood floor in. Natural wood can add a certain character and presence to a room that was not there before.
