Timber Cladding & Slatted Wood Furniture – The Winter Edit

Can you believe that it’s already winter? You know what that means… another Seasonal Edit!

This winter I’m craving subtle texture. Well, I’m always craving subtle texture…but in particular, I’ve been loving timber cladding and slatted wood accents. 

I’ve been eyeing this look for a long time now, and I’m finally starting to see it make its way into the interior of the home.

You may have seen this look before, and that’s because timber cladding is typically used as exterior siding. But as of late, it’s creeping into the interior realm in the form of accent walls, furniture, and decor.

Yep! You heard me right, statement and accent walls are slowly making their way back into the design scene, but this time they’re taking on a more minimal and Scandinavian approach with raw, unfinished wood. And I’m here for it because it adds so much texture and dimension!

What is timber cladding and slatted wood?

Also known as timber weatherboarding, timber siding, and wood slats, it’s mostly used as exterior siding on modern and contemporary homes. It can easily be described as thin strips of wood, placed either vertically or horizontally, with equal spacing between each piece.

How to incorporate the wood slat trend in your home

You can get this look by incorporating a piece of furniture that has a slatted wood look, or by using it on an accent wall. It can either be left unfinished or painted for a subtle look. The best part is that it can easily be DIY’d, which you know I love!

 I’ve seen a couple of home bloggers on instagram do something similar in their home and it looks great!  If you want some inspiration to DIY this one, I’ve been enjoying @brepurposed and @lukearthurwells . @brepurposed painted hers black and it looks particularly chic, and @lukearthurwells used the wood slats to cover up a weird doorway and it’s awesome!

In my opinion, it’s an easy way to add texture and dimension to a room. Plus, it’s DIYable. Bonus points in my book! Let me know what you think about this wood cladding look in the comments below.
