Best Wood Guide for Home Interior

There are various types of wood that are used for home interior. Before that we discuss several types of Home Interiors-

  1. Bedroom interior
  2. Kitchen interior
  3. Study room interior
  4. Bathroom interior

Bedroom Interior:  Sleep is essential to good health, and people spend nearly a third of their lives asleep. Choosing a good quality wood is more important.

  • Oak: Oak varies from light pinkish-brown to near white, and is resistant to warping and shrinking. It is readily available, easy to stain, and easy to carve. Oak is also strong and durable and resistant to wear.
  • Poplar: Poplar wood is light tan and often has green or pink streaks. Although this is one of the weaker hardwoods, it is as resistant to shrinkage as teak. It is easy to work with, but most often used for interior furniture components.
  • Mahogany: Mahogany is a rich reddish-brown to red, with good resistance to shrinking and warping. It is easy to carve and will take dark stains.

Kitchen Interior: For good quality cabinets, tables, etc. the suitable woods are listed below-

  • Cherry: Cherry wood is reddish-brown in color and resistant to warping, shrinking, and swelling. It stains well, is easy to carve, and is popular for decorative work. It is thought to be the finest type of fruitwood.
  • Maple: Maple wood is light beige to tan in color. It is very hard and resistant to wear, warping, and shrinking. It can be dyed and is very difficult to carve. Soft maple (from red or silver maple trees) is not as durable as hard maple, but stains more easily. Hard maple comes from black or sugar maple trees.
  • Alder: Alder wood is characterized by light brown and reddish undertones. Alder has a straight and even-textured wood grain with indistinct boundaries between the heartwood and the sapwood.

Study room interior: The below listed wood types are good for study table, cabinets, chairs, etc.

  • Birch: Light tan to almost white in color, birch is resistant to warping, shrinking, and swelling. This type of wood is easy to stain and is often colored to imitate mahogany, cherry, or walnut. Birch is hard to work with when intricate details are required and it is most often seen where furniture features simple, contemporary lines.
  • Teak: Teak is a rich honey-brown color. It is very durable and is often used for outdoor furniture. Outdoor furniture made of teak has a lifespan of approximately 50 years.
  • Veneers: It is a thin sliver of wood, about a twenty eighth of an inch thick, applied to a plywood or wood base. Veneers are used on high-quality furniture as well as more casual pieces. They are used to add interest to furniture pieces by accentuating the wood’s grain lines. These can be arranged to look like a single solid piece or in a pattern.

 Bathroom interior: When choosing the right flooring material for your bathroom, it’s important to consider your style, budget, and lifestyle.

  • Engineered wood: Engineered wood is better than laminate, because its base is made of sturdier plywood, which resists more water.  You probably would not want to install engineered wood in a frequently used bathroom with a shower, but for a guest powder room or half-bath it’s not a bad choice.
  • Laminates flooring: Laminates are applied over a base material, like fiberboard or particleboard, although some are applied to wood to make furniture more durable. Laminates are usually smoother and easier to clean, and colorful laminates are often used in children’s or contemporary furniture. Particleboard is prone to splitting and warping, and screws may work loose. Fiberboard offers better performance
