Wood is often overlooked in modern and contemporary home designs. However, there is a reason it has been used to manufacture furniture for centuries! This article will prove to you that wood furnishings and accessories still look amazing in any home.
Wood lasts a really long time if you take good care of it. There is a reason why our forefathers have opted for solid wood furniture as opposed to the compressed wood/laminate pieces available today. When you are looking to purchase a dining table, wood is able to handle years of abuse and use. The laminated or faux wood dining tables are hard to care for, don’t look as good and often cost about the same as a solid wood piece of furniture.
It can easily be pointed out that wood looks good paired with any style. If you love a more natural feel to your home, wood can help you get in touch with nature. A wooden end table or a gorgeous rocking chair are all pieces that can quickly become family heirlooms. A well produced item made from solid wood such as pine or oak, can give an even modern home a facelift.
Furnishings and products made from solid wood are easier to care for. Oftentimes, laminate or compressed wood items fall apart or get dings/scratches. When the latter occurs, usually the homeowner is left with no choice but to dispose of the items. A wooden piece can be sanded down and refinished with a new coat of paint. You have a lot more options to update a piece when it’s made from a natural resource.
There is no reason why any homeowner should shy away from using natural wood elements in their home designs. You can make a true statement in your home and add a focal point without trying too hard!
