5 Benefits of Wood Home Decor

Wood furniture is durable.

It is hard to destroy wood furniture. In fact, there’s a whole scale dedicated to ranking wood based on its hardness. This scale is called the Janka hardness test, and two of the hardest wood species are brazilian walnut and brazilian teak. These are both commonly used in furniture and flooring, and both are perfect for busy families, children, and pets.

While wood décor may cost a bit more, it is well worth the higher price. Wood furniture is well-made, heavy-duty, and will hold up through the years. When you purchase a piece of wood furniture, you’re adding a quality piece to your home.

Are current trends lost on you? Trends can come and go very quickly, but wooden furniture and decor items rarely go out of style. Whether it be a rustic set of wood coasters, a log slice clock, or a modern wooden alarm clock, you don’t have to over-think any of these pieces. They’re timeless, chic, and they can mesh with any current decor.

Wood is sustainable.

Wood is one of the most naturally renewable energy sources, something we’re not going to run out of anytime soon. It also absorbs carbon dioxide and is known as a ‘carbon store’. This means for every meter of wood used in construction, one ton of carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere.

Wood décor is versatile.

Wood decor can be useful as well as aesthetically pleasing. A retro coffee grinder, for instance, looks great as a neat piece of table-top decor for your kitchen or dining room, but it can also grind your coffee. If wine is more your style, then a heart-shaped wine rack can add a charming piece of decor to your wine bar.

No matter what kind of style or theme you’re going for inside your home, be it modern or rustic, wooden decor can be a pleasing addition to your space. For a rustic feel, lighter woods and organic shapes accent the qualities of nature. On the other hand, if you prefer a modern aesthetic, darker woods and stained wood furniture will be more your style. 

Whether you’re after clean lines or organic shapes, wood furniture will be the most durable and affordable option while also being environmentally friendly and versatile at the same time.
