Why Timber Will Never Go Out Of Style

July 1, 2020

In a world where styles go in and out of fashion in what seems to be a blink of an eye, fads come and go and leave behind outdated looks that can bring down the aesthetic of your home. When all else fails and you’re at a loss as to how you can amp up the feel and style of your home, it’s always a great idea to go back to the basics and take inspiration from styles that have withstood the test of time. To do this, taking note of what materials have been used in history for various furniture pieces can significantly alter your style decisions. Hard wearing, natural materials such as wood have not only been proven to be long-lasting, but are also easy to care for, and can be constructed carefully as according to your specifications.

What About Plastic?

While plastic furniture is a cheap yet durable alternative to most other furniture types, and can come in a range of colours and sizes, if you’re after a classier, stylish look, it’s harder to achieve this with plastic materials. Sometimes, it is true that you get what you pay for: inexpensive furniture can put off a cheap vibe that can dampen the style that you are going for.

Timber Furniture Is Multifaceted

Instead of investing in cheap materials, looking into furnishing your home with Australian made timber furniture can spell the difference between a common design and a home that fully encapsulates your personal style and taste as the homeowner. Aside from being tried and tested as a durable material for most furniture applications, working with a reputable furniture maker can ensure that not only do you get a unique piece that is not only functional, but also beautiful.

Striking wooden furniture not only elevates the feel of any room in the home, but also provides conversation starters, too. With a range of options for customisation, from shape, shade, to purpose, you’ll find that wood is the perfect material for your furniture needs, whatever they may be. 

And, depending on the type of wood and the quality of the furniture you’ve chosen, it’s important to note that the option of changing up the look of your pieces by means of sanding and refinishing down the line can breathe new life into your furniture, not only ensuring that it looks polished and beautiful for longer, but also adding to its timelessness. 

If, down the line, you find that your current wooden furniture no longer feels like the best fit for you, a fresh sanding and staining can really make a difference, and provide you with the versatility you may need in your home design. This adaptability of the material really does underline the fact that timber never goes out of style: instead, with the avenues provided for customisation and change, you’ll find that as your personal style changes, you’ll have a piece that can also change with your tastes, too.
