6 ways to use wood in your designs
Wood is perhaps the most universal of all construction materials – it has been there since the beginning of time, and has been used throughout the centuries in varied themes and formations. In the contemporary world, where newer and more advanced construction materials have jumped the rope to create a better experience for both users and designers, wood is still one of the foremost products to be used in the industry. With MDF (mild density fiber) and other wooden composites, there is nothing that cannot be made from wood and its modern counterparts. Today we will be taking a look at 6 ways you can use wood to create a more authentic interior design.
- Curved Waves
While wood could only be molded and hashed into solid, square and rectangular parts in the past, today it can be used to create a more dynamic setting. Entire parametric structures have now been constructed from timber, so it is only right that such architectural animation be applied in the interiors. The feature wall in the room below highlights a rater dynamic design. The curved waves alternate in each column to create a respectful 3D wall design that is both neat, as well as sophisticated.
- Wall Cladding
While there are thousands of designs that could be retrofitted into wooden schemes, it is better to lean towards simpler ones, especially in small scale interior settings. The wall clad design in the image below shows just how to encapsulate a small amount of wood or composite fibers into a visually pleasing design that can end up defining the ambiance of your room. The alternating zig zag pattern may not be a new one, but is definitely visually attractive.
An all-out simple wood design might be too bland of a concept, but given the tone of the wood, the size of the space and the kind of aesthetic you’re going for, it can certainly be arranged. The interior below is a perfect representation of how lighter wood can be used to plan the interior of an entire three dimensional space. From the wall, to walls, to the wall cladding, the simple oak wood furniture and clad make up a minimalist, earnest interior design.
This interior shows how to merge the darker tones of wood with even darker tones of the color palate. Both come together seamlessly in the interior below to showcase the best interior design strategy.
The floor may be a typical stereotype for a wooden layout, but that is definitely because it is one of the best strategies for a warm, floor layout design, as demonstrated in the design below. The warm tone of the simple wooden floor complements the white color scheme of the study and creates a beautiful, complementary setting.
