Introducing Texture to a Room with Extra Flooring Pieces
Are you worried about turning your sunshine-filled home into a country cottage or hunting lodge with all that wood? Contrary to popular (old-school) belief, adding the perfect amount of wide wood planks to a room introduces an aesthetically pleasing and visually appealing contrast. In essence, a touch of hardwood can take an already modern-looking room and elevate it into a truly unique space.
Things to Consider Before Adding Wall Accent Hardwood in Myrtle Beach
Before you haul up all that extra flooring from the storage area, or run out to purchase several boxes of hardwood, you'll need to consider a few design factors:
1) Do you want to add wood accent to a wall that is in an open room or area? If the wall in question is close to a narrow hall or small entryway, will adding a wood texture wall create a sense of congestion or darken the area?
2) Do you have enough wall space to use 4-inch-plus wide-cut planks, or 0.5-inch narrow-cut planks?
3) Do your wood flooring planks have visual appeal? Are your slats textured with knots, whorls, or spirals? In the end, to create a visually stunning accent wall, you'll need wood pieces that have character.
