Green renovation10 Ways to Refurbish a Room with Wood

We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again: The simplest or most subtle details will often be the ones that most impact your decor. Little touch-ups here and there like painting over walls and kitchen cabinets, or adding shelves are practical tips for those who’d rather avoid extensive renovation projects.

A design trick that really got my attention this year is adding wood or wood panelling to a room to achieve a low-key, minimalist look. Often coupled with other materials such as tiles or concrete, or raw, light-coloured wood can do a lot for your home, whatever way it’s used. Here are 10 perfect examples to inspire you on those rainy fall days!

Renovation Inspiration: 10 Wood Refurbished Rooms

1- Minimalist wood kitchen cabinets

Whether dark- or light-coloured, sleek or subtly detailed wooden cabinet doors will suit perfectly any number of shades, ceramic or whichever type of backsplash you prefer. Now that’s an elegant detail that’ll give your kitchen a luxurious twist!

For limited budgets, you can use peel-and-stick tiles. This is a quick and easy transformation that can be removed with ease when you’ll want to switch to something else! It’s briefly mentioned in our article: Affordable Bathroom Renovation Ideas for Tenants

2- A framed wardrobe area

This option is ideal for set-ups near the entryway or for any and all doorless closets that need a little love. The contrasting effect created by the wood in this tiny space will enthrall your guests, especially when it’s an entryway wardrobe. 

3- A wood-panelled, bedroom wall storage

If you’re running out of storage space, this solution could be it for you. Concealed behind what appears to be, at first glance, wood panelling, is practical cabinets to store your clothes or linens. This idea is both elegant and discreet. 

4- A welcoming built-in hallway cabinet

Earlier, we showed an entryway closet with a ton of flair to gain additional storage space. For those who’d want an eyeful, a custom-made refurbished corner adorned with shelves and a bench will be just as practical as it is interesting. 

5- A light-filled bathroom that instills R&R

Blending light-coloured wood and white tiles guarantee a bright and soothing decor. The materials suit one another perfectly and are easy to integrate into various decors to create a perfect spa-like bathroom area

6- A focus-channelling home office

What’s more soothing than a work area that channels productivity? With light reflecting off the walls coupled with the wood used to make the home office furniture, this is exactly the vibe you want to have for a productive workday at home. 

7- A floor/ceiling match

Now this will surely create the interior design balance you’re looking for: a ceiling that mimics the flooring. In a well-light and decently furnished room, this type of design will create a rustic flair and a chalet-like appearance to the whole.

8- Magazine-worthy shelving

Probably one of my favourite designs, with an elegance I’ve countlessly emphasized, is that of a built-in, floor-to-ceiling bookcase. For book lovers and bookworms alike, this wall unit made of wood is a dream come true. 

9- Wood and concrete for a low-key, soothing design

Creating the perfect balance between texture and dimension, the raw wood coupled with concrete will give off a magazine-worthy home design. There are numerous ways to mix these two materials, but we really like the design created in this picture. 

10- A full-on wood interior

For those who are ambitious and like all things grand, an interior made only of wood will live up to your expectations. Though it could easily be over-to-top, this design can be delicate and soft if done properly!
