Creative Ways to Use Timber at Home

Wood has long been used to furnish and fit residential dwellings, and despite the arrival of composite materials, timber is still the preferred choice for many homeowners, and with such a wide range of timber products available, one can really get creative. For those who love the look of real wood in their home, here are just a few ways you can incorporate quality wood into your interior décor.

Having the units made to measure assures a perfect fit, and the supplier will give you full instructions on how to measure correctly, which leaves no room for error. The range of timber includes Rosewood and mahogany, and with a range of stylish grain finishes, the screening will complement the décor perfectly.
  • Timber Balustrades – There’s nothing like a hand crafted timber handrail for the stairs, and regardless of the shape or size, a local joiner can easily create something ideal and the job can be finished in a few hours.
  • Breakfast Bar – If you really want practicality and style combined, having a bespoke breakfast bar fitted along the back wall of the kitchen is an ideal feature, and with matching bar stools and some hanging pendants, the look is complete. This is something that any qualified joiner would be able to undertake, and with the right design, your kitchen – dining area will be suitably transformed.
