DON’T BE A BLOCKHEAD. NAIL IT RIGHT!

The environment can influence your mood. A modern and attractive workplace has become just as important as an attractive pay-check. Like how office interiors are designed with employee’s happiness in mind and productivity being the natural by-product, homes can be just as versatile, if not better.

A home is more than just 4 walls and a roof. It is surely a comfort zone and a place for you to feel safe and relaxed. With deliberation, a home is also a personal space to express your creativity and evoke happiness. Whether you are going for a unique look, or finding creative solutions for your storage woes, custom carpentry can tackle all kinds of space challenges.

Today, we will shed light on amazing interior carpentry design principles that will be the perfect inspiration to make informed choices and create a well-designed living space.




STRIKE A BALANCE THROUGHOUT THE HOUSE

When designing a space, the matching of its purpose to achieve a home design that is both appealing and functional is nothing, but crucial. Defining the space with colours and furniture sets a clear layout, and it all starts from the entrance where your home begins.

Less is more? Committing to a minimalistic design does offer openness and lightness. Nonetheless, the consideration of storage areas such as shelving options to prevent cluttering is perhaps not a trade-off. Thus, taking your time to look for complimentary furniture is an essential business! Remember, every element - including shapes, colour palette and well-built furnishing is necessary to create a soothing and inviting space of timeless aesthetics.




DON’T OVERLOOK THE LITTLE DETAILS

Sometimes, we tend to over focus on the big picture when we start planning for our dream home. For the design to be comprehensive and successful, we need to lavish as much attention on the fine details as we do on everything else.



UNDERSTAND THE BEAUTY OF WOOD GRAINS

Like fingerprints, the grains of each tree are unique. This is an essential design detail to take note of. Not only do the types of wooden grain determine the strength and surface of the wood, but it also makes all the difference between a rustic, contemporary and industrial style.

Wood adds a natural warmth to interiors across all design spectrums and in just about any space. The extensive array of wood species, ranging in textures, colours and patterns, gives interior designers the flexibility to propose stunning design concepts for diverse eclectic and versatile structures.

Many authentic woodworking projects predominantly use expensive and exotic wood types to accentuate the modern architectural features, which can be costly.

- Solid wood furniture: Made completely of the same species of all-natural wood, exposing all its original knots and features.

- Veneer furniture: Constructed by gluing thin layers of real hardwood together to a stable substrate, creating the look of solid wood furniture with a lighter core. The best and most interesting logs are cut into veneer, allowing for uniformity of crisscross designs and arrangements of the wood.

Bearing the resemblance of organic wood and feel, laminate furniture consists of synthetic materials that is printed to obtain its wood grains appearance. Not to say laminates isn’t stylish. With fully customisable colours and finishes, it offers a broader range of design options. Hence, if cost is your only qualifier, laminate is definitely a practical and sophisticated way to subsume the biophilia trend.


As always, speak with a manufacturer for details and discover the

final results with the right wood.



DON’T UNDERESTIMATE CARPENTRY HARDWARE

Surprisingly, committing to suitable interior fittings compliments the choice of wood. The abundant options for style, size and finish are often overlooked in lieu of the larger design elements. A carefully thought-out combination of knobs, handles and other opening closing mechanisms is necessary to define your interior design style. For instance, elaborate handles complement traditional environment, while smooth sleek stainless steel or sometimes without any visible hardware enhances the minimal contemporary edge. Especially in a larger living space, you may want to add variations to add subtle visual interest, giving your home a disputed character.
