Wood is an excellent element to add to any interior space. Adding warmth, natural beauty, and comfort is why wood is very popular to incorporate into home spaces. Wood can be used in any home’s style, including rustic, modern, and even vintage. One idea for your home is to install reclaimed high ceilings to add uniqueness and create a more intimate atmosphere. You can also stack up birchwood logs into a decorative fireplace to make your home feel like a rustic getaway. Wood light fixtures are the perfect cherry on the top of wood accents in your home. The wood is more sustainable, offers an organic look, and can be incorporated into most areas. Let's dive into what wood accents you can incorporate into your home this spring.

Cabinetry markets used to go to great lengths to conceal the wood grain and worked towards making every single cabinet and kitchen piece uniform. The reclaimed wood trend began around ten years ago and is now a staple in interiors worldwide. It has opened the door to mixing textures, colors, and wood grain finish to create a unique space. We have collected our favorite photos of wood-accented kitchens and compiled our very own products to complete your dream look.

2. Make a Statement

When you layer many different wood surfaces in your kitchen, you can create a dynamic and eye-catching space. For example, let's say your kitchen is bright with natural light and grey tones. Although this creates a very sleek look, it can be overpowering. Instead, consider adding a bold contrast with wood on the countertops and incorporating a darker wood with your bar stools.

3. Frame Your Space

Wood beams will draw the eyes up and add a unique style to highlight the architectural details of the space. The ceiling of your home is usually a blank canvas and one that is too often neglected. Beams, whether structural or purely decorative, can instantly add visual interest. Reclaimed wood planks will create a rustic ambiance, while white-washed panels enhance the coastal appeal. Everything ties together when you add wood floors and counters that mirror the ceiling.

4. Widen Your Space

Anytime you add a wide array of one color or texture, it draws the eye along and makes your space look larger. The same happens when adding natural wood to your kitchen cabinets. Lighter wood finishes with bright and airy wall paint or backsplash will expand the perceived space and make your kitchen more inviting.
