Interesting New Design Inspirations with Natural Oak Flooring

 

Choosing natural wood for your interior design aesthetic is a good choice for those looking to bring the feel of the outdoors inside. Australian architects and interior designers are increasingly using natural timber tones and hues in their designs. Natural woods can also be used in other spaces, including the bathroom and even the office.

The tone of the wood will also inform the choice of your colour palette for paints, décor and other accessories. Let’s take a look at how to best use natural wood in your interior design.

Appropriate Lighting

 

While using natural wood tones for your ceiling, floor or walls is a great way to create a warm feeling, this can be to the detriment of the room’s brightness. Compensate this by using tracked or recessed lighting along the ceiling. A few subtle sources of artificial light such as lamps can also add to the warm, comfortable feeling.

Invest in Some Crafted Furniture

 

Why not keep the natural, un-treated theme going for your furniture? Select some pieces that either match the tone of the wood used for your floor, wall or ceiling or go for a lighter or darker tone. However it is best to keep them un-treated to keep in line with the theme of your room or house.

The Attic or Loft

 

Converting your attic or loft into an open plan bedroom or living space is fast becoming a popular option among Australian designers. Use natural toned wood for the ceiling and walls and either keep the palette continuous with a natural toned floor or go a shade darker or lighter to create some contrast. Dark purples, blues and deep reds can be effective for a bold touch of colour here and there.

 

 

The Master Bedroom

 

One way to incorporate natural wood into the master bedroom is to have a feature wall. This can work especially well if you choose full-length windows for the other walls. The natural grain of the timber feature wall will nicely complement the view of the trees and shrubbery in your yard.
