This festive season, here’s how you can introduce the warmth of wood in your homes

A home cannot be built in a day, it’s a haven that you create piece by piece. If you are someone who wishes to make your home an oasis of peace and warmth, then you must definitely introduce wood in the interiors of your home.
Wood being a versatile material has given people the chance to explore its different applications in home decor. Similarly, the festive season gives you an excellent opportunity to experiment with different types of woodwork in your home.

Here are a few ways in which you can enhance the aesthetics of your home with wood:

1.Create a lasting impression with beautiful and practical wooden flooring

A home with wooden flooring is a dream come true. It gives a rich appearance to your interiors and complements almost any colour scheme. Apart from the aesthetic value, it is also considered as a very economical addition to your home. It is durable, naturally resistant to rot & decay and it performs exceptionally well in extreme conditions.

2. Enhance the look of your walls with wood panels

Wood panels were restricted to basement rooms in America in the 1970s. Now, it’s one of the most popular interior trends in India and overseas. The combination of designs inspired from the traditional and contemporary books make this application a perfect choice! By experimenting with different wood species, you can explore multiple ways in which you can introduce wood panels in your home. Established interior designers suggest to begin with three-quarter wood panels if your home is filled with woodwork; if not, you can opt for floor-to-roof panels. Complement your home with these wonderful panels and make the most of this wonderful application!

3. Create an illusion of a spacious room in your home with wooden room dividers

Wooden Dividers are an excellent choice for creating different spaces in one large region. Translucent wooden dividers with intricate designs contribute to the aesthetics of your home and also allow you to personalize your space in subtle ways. Flat floor-to-roof panels with generous gaps allow natural light and fresh air to enter the room while maintaining connectivity between two rooms.

4. Add a natural touch to your home with wooden ceilings

Wood ceilings have noticed an increasing demand today in the interior industry. Apart from being easy-to-install and maintain, wood ceilings also give out an inviting vibe.

A light-coloured wood ceiling makes the room look bright and warm; however, you can pick shades on the basis of the colour of your walls and other interior elements. It also has an additional advantage of being an insulator, thus keeping your home warm and cosy at all times.
