Wood is one of those materials that never goes out of fashion, even though different types and shades can fall in and out of favour.
According to the LA Times, there are a number of areas of interior design where wood is set to take centre stage in the coming 12 months.
The newspaper highlighted the move towards creating “resort- or spa-like interiors”, noting that “meditative colours, rattan, warm materials like wood, natural fibres” are all key in achieving this particular look.
If you’re planning to revamp your children’s rooms, meanwhile, you should look at how you can incorporate lofted beds into their space. The publication notes that these “make the best forts”, and if you want something that’s tailored to your little one then splashing out on bespoke joinery in Kent is well worth the cash.
Wood details are also going to increasingly pop up in kitchens, as more people look for a way of introducing rustic country styles into their homes, whether they’re in the countryside or the heart of the city.
Trough sinks, warm wood details and vintage elements are among the features to incorporate if you want to achieve this look in your kitchen.
Another trend to look out for in 2018, according to an Australian interiors expert, is Raw Earth. To get this right, you need to feature handmade, bespoke pieces of furniture, often crafted using natural materials like wood, as well as making use of rugs and throws made from natural fabrics like wool, hemp and calico.
