Using oak in your next renovation project has many benefits. Whether you’re just looking for new ideas to redecorate your room, or are intending to undertake a whole floor-to-ceiling renovation project, we will reveal the best ways to use oak in your home renovation project.
Oak is the natural choice for your floor as not only does it look great, it is also really durable and hard-wearing. This means that when you install solid oak flooring, you can be sure that it will withstand heavy footfall and will last for many years to come.
If you’re looking to install new doors in your house, oak should be your material of choice.
As well as being constructed from a long-lasting and sustainable material (as long as it is sourced from sustainable sources, like the oak at Traditional Beams), oak doors can be made with a wide range of finishes, so you will easily be able to find a door that will suit your decor.
Adding oak floating shelves to your living space is a stylish and simple way to add extra storage to normally unused wall space. It’s always best to add oak floating shelves to your walls in odd numbers. Displays of three or five oak floating shelves look amazing.
Oak floating shelves work in any room of your house. In your bathroom, add rolls of towels to your oak floating shelves. In your kitchen, stacks of plates and cups are ideal and in your living room, pictures of your nearest and dearest interspersed with piles of books and candles, work perfectly on your oak shelves to create a stunning focal point.
Install an oak fireplace beam to your chimney breast to finish off your fireplace. Not only do oak beams look really good as fireplace mantels, they make the ideal place to create a seasonal display. At Christmas, festoon your oak fireplace beam with fairy lights intertwined with greenery garlands and in the summer, decorate your oak mantel with jars of seasonal flowers and brightly-coloured bunting.
When you’re undertaking a home renovation project, it can be easy to forget one of the most important living spaces: the garden.
An oak framed gazebo is a stylish and practical addition to any garden, as not only does it make a great feature, it can also provide a seating area sheltered from the summer sun and – more likely in the UK – the rain.
Oak gazebo kits come in a range of shapes and sizes, designed to suit different sized spaces.
We hope we’ve inspired you to use oak in your next home renovation project, no matter how big or small. As always, we’d love to see photos of what you’ve created, so remember to send us your snaps!
