The Best-kept Secret That Pros Love To Use When Doing A Home Remodel
Ever wonder what material both architects and builders love to use in home design? The answer is wood. Why? It is timeless, natural, and inviting. Wood brings the feeling of the natural world into your home.
Picture a home with white marble countertops, white tile flooring and white walls. Doesn’t it feel cold and sterile?
Wood Design Elements
However, if you add in wooden elements such as wood windows and flooring and mix it with modern touches, such as matching steel appliances and white cabinetry; the result is a feeling of “warmth” in a room. It allows you to experience the essence of nature while in the home.
Create a Focal Point
Adding a beautiful texture, such as wood, to your windows can create a spectacular focal point. In this remodeling project, the homeowners selected Milgard® Essence Series® wood replacement windows and patio doors for their kitchen. The prime pine wood was stained to echo the cabinet selection color. The lighter wood flooring gives the eye a place to rest and helps create a warm and inviting ambiance.
