How to follow 2017’s Love of Wood

You’ve got your gorgeous Harrogate townhouse. The location and its exterior is perfect but what about the interior? Wooden furniture is all the rage at the minute, whether its pallet headboards, farmhouse kitchen tables, rustic dining stools, wood stocking shelves or a sliding door credenza.

Luxury wooden furniture will bring your home right up to speed with 2017 and leave it looking flawless.

It doesn’t have to cost a fortune either. Using reclaimed wood is a very viable method of bringing stylish wooden furniture into your house and the fact is, the more aged and matured the wood is, the more durable it is.

And what’s more, every piece is unique which means your home will be completely different from anything else out there.

The Hallway

Starting with the hallway, a wooden front entryway table can make the entrance to your townhouse all the more inviting and warm. In terms of what type of wood to use, light oak Wooden furniture available at the Wooden Furniture Store always works very well.

Alternatively, if you’ve had enough of tripping over everyone’s shoes, add a wooden shoe rack bench to your porch. It can double as a seat as well as acting as the perfect place to store shoes. You can buy these from many high-street retailers, or you can build your own and stain with colour to perfectly match your home.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is often the room people put the most time and effort into when decorating their home and it’s so easy to instil some beautiful wooden touches here. Something as a simple as a farmhouse dining table and bench makes a statement and is a timelessly gorgeous addition to your home.

If you favour dining chairs over a bench, then a combination of wood and steel can create a perfect rustic touch to even the most modern of kitchens.

Though your dining furniture isn’t the only way to bring the wooden trend into your kitchen, a reclaimed wood kitchen pot rack made from drift wood or an old ceiling beam is such an aesthetically pleasing way to store your crockery.

It adds a warm and cosy feeling and can help bring the country feel into your townhouse. Using planks from wooden pallets can also be highly effective as they can create a perfect backsplash.

Wooden pallets are perfect to experiment with when introducing your home to the wooden trend. They’re so readily available and not only can they act as black splash for your kitchen, but they can help to create a gorgeous feature wall in your living room – a wooden wall accent is something that is rarely seen but looks stunning.

Painted pallets also make for a beautiful wall decoration and are a great alternative to a typical canvas or painting.

Though, if you do wish to keep those precious family memories on display, some oversized wooden picture frames will do the job perfectly. A coffee table with a suar wood top is the ideal way incorporate wood into your living room’s centre piece.

The Bedroom
In the bedroom, creating a headboard or bed frame from wooden pallets is a great way to keep the wood theme flowing. A nightstand made of reclaimed wood can also make for the perfect rustic touch for your sleeping space.
You may not want to go too rustic with your bedroom however, so if you have a desk or dressing table, go for a pine or oak option as the light colours will keep the room modern and won’t make it seem cluttered.
