We can show you how to do just that while enhancing not only the overall look of your home, but its overall value as well.
Incorporating Wood Tones Into Your Luxury Home
Many homeowners are misled in their belief that whenever using natural wood as part of your home’s interior design and décor that you must match the wood all across every part of your home. This could not be farther from the truth. There are two primary reasons why this is not the best design idea at all. First, it is nearly impossible to match wood types of any kind exactly. With that said, your wood floors, wood shutters and your oak furniture are all going to naturally vary in tones.
Secondly, if you make every effort to match all the wood in your home then surely everything will just run together and none of your wood pieces or designs will be eye catching and stand out at all. Rather, they will all blend together. Certainly, you don’t want your home to lack that luxurious appeal if you are willing to spend the money, so the best approach is to coordinate the tone and the grain of the wood in your home furnishings. By doing so you give your living space a true sense of direction and uniqueness.
Coordinate the Wood Grains In your Living Space
As many of us know, matching wood grains can be quite simple and straightforward. If your wood floors are smooth, then it’s best to go with a smooth finish for your wood shutters. If your wood floors are hand-scraped or wire-brushed then be certain to choose a similar grain for your shutters so as to keep that natural style flowing throughout your home. Taking it one step further, you can also coordinate your wood shutters to blend or match your shelving in your home as well.
Coordinate the Wood Tones In Your Living Space
Though matching wood grains is somewhat easy, attempting to match wood tones is a whole lot harder and trickier. When it comes time to choose the color stain for your wood shutters there are a couple of important factors to keep in mind. To begin with, try to keep the tones within the same family of wood tones. Cherry and oak are quite elegant and formal, with maple and pine being a bit more on the simple and casual side.
Next, keep in mind that wood species can either be naturally cool in tone or naturally warm. Be sure to choose the wood shutters that best match the tone of your individual rooms as well as the texture in your décor.
