How to Use Timber in a Home Design?

The versatile material has many applications such as a feature piece (or a part of it), on the walls/floor, or in furniture.

  • For the floor design, strips form the most common pattern that uses timber but you can also consider parquetry or herringbone. However, you need to know the wear rating before choosing the right timber for flooring. The base should be strong enough to bear the traffic through the room.
  • For wall designs, timber can be used to create aesthetically appealing textured designs. You can use recycled timber to create such a design, showing your concern for the environment while getting a unique appearance in return.
  • In the furniture segment, timber can be used to create various styles and looks such as a dark bathroom vanity or a neutral kitchen cabinet.
