I’ve always been drawn to wood and I think its entirely due to my grandparents’ being wood workers. When they retired from farming and milking their cows they converted their (now my) old barn into a wood workshop. I have so many memories of being out there in the saw dust helping. To this day the smell of stain brings me right back to being with my grandma.

I think wood can really add to a space if done correctly. I love seeing images (like those in this article) that prove that wood can be rustic and incredibly modern all at the same time.

Though I am not entirely on the wood bandwagon (I think we’ve cut down enough trees now and there are plenty of renewable options!) I can still entirely appreciate its beauty.

Especially in tiny home designs because it adds warmth truly in a way that nothing else can.

The use of wood for small homes has always been a great option for homeowners. Wood provides a natural aesthetic feel especially with homes with tiny spaces. Aside from its pleasing look, using wood for tiny homes is also an affordable choice.

  1. Sturdy Outdoor Flooring 

Most people spend a lot of time looking at wooden interior flooring, but significantly less time looking at outdoor wood flooring.

This is a shame, because, when doing your outdoor wood flooring, there are so many different styles and materials to choose from.

Out of the many choices available to you, most experts recommend modified wood, in comparison to standard outdoor wood, due to the richness of the wood, and how much more aesthetically pleasing modified wood is.

If you have a pool, or are in the process of installing one, instead of using traditional concrete, you can install modified wood – in the color of your choosing – to create a space that is very pretty to look, but also a lot cooler on your feet – due to the way modified wood absorbs heat – and slip resistant.

One other great style to consider is, if you have wood floors, using a similar style and color of wood on your outdoor deck, in order to create a very seamless and beautiful transition between the two.

  1. Unique Styles Of Interior Design 

There are many styles of wooden interior design. Such as Industrial – a darker, more old-fashioned aesthetic. Farmhouse – a very rustic theme, with modern touches such as paint that is a bright shade of white. Mid-Century Modern – A very classic, clean look that is primarily focused on practicality, and less on aesthetic beauty. Urban Modern – a very popular style that blends minimalism with an emphasis on looking glossy and sleek.

You can integrate wooden interior design in many unique ways throughout your home. For example, purchasing beautiful wooden furniture – preferably custom made – is one such way. One other way of integrating this style is by installing wooden walls in a color and style that matches your space and the aesthetics that you like.

  1. Sustainable Home Exterior

When it comes to having a wooden sustainable home exterior, you have plenty of choices, but in our experience, mid-century siding is the best choice.

Wood siding is such a versatile choice, because there are so many options for color, texture, and tone. Then, when you combine it with mid-century siding, you get a very geometric design that merges the artificial – your home – with the natural, using an absolutely breathtaking style.

One way of putting this style into practice is by using different types of siding materials – such as stone – and integrating them with wood. If you choose the right materials, you get a beautiful home.

  1. Board And Batten 

Board and batten is a type of interior paneling, or exterior siding, that consists of wide wooden boards, and very narrow strips of wood that are called “battens.”

Generally, it’s an inexpensive style to install in your home, and, while most homes don’t always make use of its aesthetic beauty, you can easily do so.

Use white or gray, when painting the walls, because those tend to look the best. Make sure that your walls aren’t too high, either, on the interior, because they tend to look a little ugly when they take up a lot of space, due to the muted color scheme that board and batten paneling and siding often uses.

  1. Reclaimed Wood Accents 

Reclaimed wood paneling is an incredibly inexpensive choice of paneling – due to the fact that it is made from recycled wood – and when you install a reclaimed wood accent in, for example, your living room, it tends to look fantastic!

Using the style, tone, and texture of your choosing – and there are many options – you can install an accent wall in the room of your choosing, and the aesthetic combination is often very pleasing, due to the distinctness of having such an accent wall.
