Want A Cosy Home? Here Are 6 Ways To Achieve It Using Wood

January 30, 2020
BOOKMARK

When the temperature heats up, there are no other places more appealing to relax and enjoy family time together than in your own living room. One of the most cooling elements you can go for when renovating your home is wood material. In addition to being one of the most durable building materials, wood is a popular choice as furniture and it creates instant comfort and cosiness to even a modern space.

If you are looking for design inspiration to incorporate wooden material into your home, take a look at these ideas to inspire you to experiment with this natural element in an interesting way.


1. Choose similar wood tones to create a unified look in a living space

Wood that comes in masses of colour, finishes and formats can go well with various interior designs. Go for light tone vinyl flooring if you prefer a Scandinavian look for your home or choose a mahogany sideboard for retro styling.

To create a continuous flow between the different zones in an open space living room, look for wooden furniture in the same tone as seen in this contemporary home. The natural light helps to highlight the beauty of the wood grain and creates a Zen-like atmosphere to this restful living room.

2. Apply wood elements from floor to ceiling

The living room below will take a love of wood to another level. The reddish-brown parquet floors are impossible not to notice from its rich colour and pattern. The natural grain carries up across the walls, into shelving units, furniture, cabinetry, and even across the ceilings. The resulting style creates a welcoming and relaxing vibe into this home.

3. Choose light wood tones to add warmth to a living space

A living room decked out in light tone wood floors, furniture, cabinet and a white palette may not be the easiest to maintain (especially if you have small children) but if cleanliness is your middle name, you’ll be pleased with the result of the combination of these two components as seen in this urban home.

Light-tone wooden flooring and built-in dining bench set against a backdrop of crisp white walls not only look pleasing in the eyes, but it also makes the room look visually spacious. It complements well with the grey fabric sofa that adds warmth and comfort to the space.

4. Mix and match wood with other design elements

Wooden element can also be mixed and matched with other materials as well. In the living area of this condominium, a pebble wash terrazzo floor was ornately laid to add textural contrast to the earth-toned timber floors. The combination of a muted interior palette and sleek Scandinavian furniture selections offers warmth and creates a calm and relaxing living space.
