Interior design trends for wood in 2019

Trends change a lot, they are always on the go, interior design trends included. People like to think that interior designs trends as recreated rather than an imitation of history. We like to think this because they’re tradition ideas, linked to the past, they have just been changed by modern practices.

Below is a collection of interior design trends in wood that’s going to be key in 2019.

Elevated Grain

Playing a bigger part in wood within interior projects this year is texture, elevated grain is being a popular feature in homes, hotels and workspaces. It is said when you come into contact with the honest wood you feel connected to the natural world. Elevated grain is becoming a must in 2019. The many different texture and tone of the wood when it put onto walls, ceilings or floors help to add layers of interest because it is bringing a calming feeling to the interiors. The weathered patina, characterful knots and grain add a distinguishing texture to the wood.

Statement Colour

Minimalist, clean palettes are being overtaken by bold colours and a big amount of texture. Many interior designers have been drawn to Pantone's colour of the year, we’ve been attracted to by a completely different colour by Benjamin Moore. Using colour on doors, furniture and ceilings makes an interior statement and is providing character within that space.

Multi-Surface Wood

If your looking to bring indisputable warmth into a room then having reclaimed wood on walls, ceilings and floors is the way to go. This will permeate a relaxed feel, no matter what the interior style is. Reclaimed timber with the rich aura of bygone times is rammed with protentional for interior designs.


Lots of interior designers have been pulled in by the ultra-bright sheen of metallic. Modern magpie shine that comes with a metallic surface is irresistible and they couldn’t resist working with it and working it into handmade wood floors.

Sculptural Pieces

Having patterned flooring is nothing new, just certain things within it may have been forgotten. A design called herringbone pattern dates all the way back to millennia to Roman road paving systems. It's been used to create flow in challenging spaces since the 16th century. With interior designers wanting to work woods texture, sculpture and historical beauty into their projects, we are seeing herringbone, chevron and parquet de Versailles a lot more in modern times. There is just some great feeling seeing a hand-cut piece of reclaimed wood. Herringbone format lets craftsmen show their techniques.
