There are many different types of wood textures available in the market. The vast variety includes dark espresso shades, distressed cherry ones, classic ash ones, and of course: the light oak and beech ones. The last of these have recently gained a lot of popularity, especially now that Singaporeans have discovered clever little ways to make their homes look more spacious. If you love this look, then here are 5 interior design inspirations for you:
1. Classic floor and media walls
This living room features an iconic light wood combination. The texture is mainly articulated on the floor and the media wall, but since it has a lighter presence, it ends up making the space look very capacious. Coupled with the white accents and laminates, the entire layout looks cheerful and breezy. Even the lighting has been specifically curated to complement this particular shade of wooden texture.
2. Call for furniture
Floors and walls are not the only way that you can emulate light wood textures in your home interiors. In fact, you can make your spaces look classy and unique by picking furniture of this specific genre. The dining nook featured in this image has been carefully planned out to highlight the coziness of the wood. Moreover, the white minimalist upper half perfectly complements the warm-hued lower half.
3. Accenting with bold hues
The thing about any kind of wood is that it doesn’t work very well with jewel-toned hues, but it does emulate a charismatic look when paired with neutral themed bold colours like black, greys, and more. As you can see in this image, the bifold partition windows with their black framing stand out beautifully against the light wooden hue of its surroundings. You can do the same with doors, feature-length glass partitions, and more.
4. Half ‘n half
This kitchen features a gorgeous way that you can use light wood textures on your cabinets. Since using them on all the cabinets can look boring, you can use this exact technique and only apply it on the lower half. The upper-cabinets can feature a different texture – whites, greys, anything that you like. You can even use a filigree of wooden borders to spice things up a bit.
5. Matching with pastels
This bedroom interior design is not only large and spacious, but it also features a unique combination of light wood and powder blue. Both are bright and airy, which in turn effuses the space with a cheerful aura. This is certainly a unique pairing that can give your spaces a distinct look.
