One of my favorite home decor styles at the moment is using natural woods such as oak beams in order to furnish a room. Oak beams are such an excellent building material to work with, they can be put to use in so many novel ways, for example in one of my rooms the beams have a mottled and beaten effect that was achieved by using a wood chisel. In another room the beams of oak are installed as they came from the sawmill, they are used mainly for their functional support qualities but still manage to look visually attractive.
I’ve also used solid oak flooring in my home
When I had installed the oak beams in my home, I also bought solid oak flooring to match the decor. Because I was buying the oak in large volumes, I was also able to get a discount on the hardwood which meant it turned out to be a lot cheaper that it otherwise would have.
My oak flooring looks particularly effective because I have chosen to leave it untreated, thus making it look authentic. The colours of both the treated and untreated oak go together amazingly well.
