It's official: natural wood is back. A beloved feature of homes across the nation, incorporating natural wood elements into your space is a surefire way to achieve the cozy home oasis you've been dreaming about.
Natural Wood and Interior Design's Love/Hate Relationship
When you hear natural wood interior design, you may think of wall-to-wall wood paneling, gold parquet flooring, or outdated yellow wood cabinets. These unfortunate trends were common in the 90s and early 2000s. Much like carpeting at the time, homeowners loved wood a bit too much.
Interior design trends often swing to one extreme before settling in a comfortable middle ground. In response to the overwhelming wood frenzy, public opinion on wood in interior design shifted completely, resulting in an overload of painted wood.
Design trends have finally settled on natural wood; thankfully, it is easy to bring this cozy trend to your home!
The Resurgence of Natural Wood
These days, it feels like you can trace all trends back to the early pandemic days. 2020 brought us a new appreciation for comfortable living spaces. The idea that your home is your sanctuary has not gone anywhere since then!
Using natural wood in your decor can elevate your space instantly. Whether your style is boho, eclectic, or minimalist, bringing the outdoors inside through natural textures like wood will maximize your home's calm.

Incorporating Natural Wood Around the House
One of the reasons wood is so popular again is because it is such a versatile material. It can be used all around the house!
To create a seamless outside-in, start at the windows by installing wood blinds or shutters. The wood will instantly lighten and brighten the atmosphere of the room. Golden sun rays will highlight the natural wood's beauty and bounce off color to create a warm glow around your window.
Coffee tables are a popular option for anyone purchasing a natural wood furniture piece. Whether you're looking for a statement piece or a coffee table to help highlight other features in your space, you are sure to find something you like!
Think about installing a wooden wall design for those wanting to make an impact. This can be as simple as using natural wood frames for your artwork or as extensive as installing modern wood accents custom-built for your space.
Opt for a light wood bedframe to make your bedroom feel like a spa. Paid with soft white bedding, the warm tones of the wood will jump out. You won't be able to resist climbing into bed at the end of a long day!
Don't leave your kitchen behind! Adding a wood chandelier or lighting fixture over an island or table can elevate your space while keeping the heart of your home casual and approachable.
If you're not a fan of statement lighting, switch out your countertops for butcher block wood. Durable and stylish, your kitchen will thank you for the change!
