Simple Design Ideas for a Wonderful Timber Home

21 Feb. 2017

One of the best things about creating a wooden home is the feeling of freedom and order you get from knowing that everything is in its right place. While some people naturally prefer to live in a large space, for most of us, comfort is about scale. The ideal combination of space and cosiness is what we all strive for and it is possible to achieve it with a timber frame home. Here are some design ideas to get the most out of your wood.

Allow Sunlight to Enter
There are few things more welcoming than the sight of natural sunlight entering the home. Design experts say your home should have lots of windows and glass doors to create a bright and vibrant space. For example, if you have nine-foot ceilings, you can add eight-foot windows; the additional space makes the world of difference.

Include a Foyer
The best post and beam homes create an element of suspense in the form of a single-level foyer. Instead of immediately walking into a vast space which can be intimidating, guests are welcomed by a small transitional space with lower ceilings that eases them into your home. Always avoid entries that bring people directly into the main room as it removes the intimate element so coveted in timber homes.

Embrace Nooks and Crannies
Keeping in tune with the elements of surprise and discovery, consider designing cosy nooks for relaxation and entertaining. Examples include a gaming area, reading chair or breakfast corner. It is important to consider these details during the planning phase to ensure these nooks are distinguishable from the central area of the home. According to design experts, a so-called dead end space is the best place to include these unique areas.

Don't make it Too Small!
Although you want to make your timber home nice and comfortable, there is a fine line between cosy and cramped. If you can afford it, ensure that you allocate some extra space to auxiliary rooms to make your home more functional. The larger the home, the more design options you have at your disposal. For example, you could include a media room, den or even a library.

When it is designed correctly, there are few things more beautiful than a wooden post and beam home. It offers a rustic feel, but you can still include as many home comforts as you wish.
