MODERN HOUSE WITH WOOD ACCENTS
CLADDING FOR CEILINGS, FIREPLACES, AND MORE
A lot of people tend to overlook reclaimed wood as a contemporary style piece, thinking of it instead as just a rustic application product. We’re happy to see, though, that more and more people and designers are using finished wood planks in a contemporary space to add some personality and warmth.
A fireplace is generally the focal point of a room, so it doesn’t need a lot of flare surrounding it. Finished wood planks can provide just the right amount of eye-catching design when it is used as a wall surrounding a fire place. It pairs especially well with brick to bring a little bit of the outdoors into an otherwise urban setting.
A wood ceiling does more than add warmth to any room in your home. It also saves you time since wood used on areas that are not walked on can basically be left as it is and requires minimal cleaning and maintenance. Try using wood on your ceiling in the kitchen to add warmth and style.
If you’re not quite ready to devote an entire wall or ceiling to wood, but still like the added style element it can bring to a room, try it out first as a headboard. You’ll add instant interest to your bedroom, and you’ll also get a chance to see how much you like this look in your home.
Whether you are decorating a home or office, wood is a simple yet elegant way to add some style and depth to your space without overpowering other design elements.
