Top Tips about matching wood into your home:
Great news! Contrary to what you might think, the wood finishes in your home do not have to match.
Don’t worry if you have a diverse mix of wood furniture. When done right, you can create a stunning room using a variety of wood tones, colours and styles in a way that would make an interior decorator proud.
Using a variation in patterns, textures and shades is not only an eye-catching way to decorate a living room, dining room or bedroom, it’s also a practical way to decorate.
Most people don’t buy all their furniture from one place or at one time. The unique finish is more interesting than the matchy-matchy look of the past.
Read on to learn how to properly fit a mishmash of wood furniture, with these top tips from CasaLivin.
1. Watch for Warm or Cool
The tone of the wood furniture in your room doesn’t have to match exactly but you should look for complementary undertones.
First, check if the woods are overall warm or cool in tone, and then look for a base undertone that carries throughout the different wood finishes in the room.
In this example, all the woods are dark and warm in tone. They fit together despite being different. This is a good tactic to take if you are feeling unsure about mixing wood finishes. You can’t go wrong when you pick one wood tone to anchor the space.
Some woods are considered more formal than others. Classic oak, mahogany and cherry are formal, while pine, maple and bamboo are less formal. By sticking to the same family of wood you create cohesion – it’s an easy way to match a room.
3. Match the Grain in Rustic Woods
If you are creating a rustic-themed room and your different wood furniture pieces all have a prominent grain, keeping the grain pattern similar creates a cohesive look. An open-grained pattern is, on the whole, more casual than a fine grain.
4. Or Mix it up with Different Grains
Alternatively, you could use grain style and pattern as you would fabric pattern in a room – scatter a mixture of different grain patterns around the room to create an eclectic, eye-catching mix of colours and textures.
Just be sure to commit to one way or the other – don’t use one type of grain on nearly all pieces and have one different piece that sticks out like a sore thumb. Either go with all similar or really mix it up thoroughly.
5. Pick a Stunning Accent Colour
Two entirely different pieces of wood furniture work effectively together when you use a brilliant shot of pink, purple, green or any other accent colour on both pieces.
This trick really helps to create a cohesive look to a dining room, or brings together two distinctive pieces for a brilliant bedroom to be proud of.
