Modern Decor: Concrete, Wood, and Metal

A popular trend in modern interior design is to use concrete, wood, and metal in the same room or even throughout the whole house as a design theme. Concrete and light or dark colored hardwood look amazing together. Adding different metal shelves or even just really nice metal trinkets and lighting adds even more charm to a room.
This design scheme might seem a bit drab at first, but it really does look beautiful once together. The best part about this design is that you can add splashes of color throughout the rooms. You could add different colored fabrics, furniture, or rugs.

Here are a few examples of how well these design elements look together:

The Difference in Wood Grades

SW483-00296-roomWood grade is described as the visual of natural wood. Wood grade is evaluated along a wide spectrum that ranges from very uniform to significant color variations, streakers, short lengths, open knots, and worm holes.

Here is a list of the different wood grades, their characteristics, and allowable defects:

1st Quality/A Grade –
Wood is cut from the center of the log and they have a highly uniform appearance with few knots. The sap content of the wood is low so color variations are minimal. After finishing, the face of the boards have a clean appearance.
Allowable defects – Natural color variations, off-color streaks 6 inches in length, and occasional very small knots or pin-worm holes.

2nd Quality/B Grade –
The planks will have more wood characters that are normal to the species, but the face of the boards will still be even and smooth after filling and finishing.
Allowable defects – Small worm holes, season and kiln checks, dime-size broken knots, larger open knots if they are properly filled and finished, and some sapwood, torn grains, and burns.

C Grade/Mill Run –
This grade of wood will have more color, bigger knots, and creamy-colored sapwood. There will also be some unfilled or unfinished open characteristics on the face of the planks. The boxes of this type of wood will also have shorter pieces.
Allowable defects – Some finish irregularities, bubbles, small skips, lines, stain, color variations, and surface handling scratches.

Cabin/Tavern –
This grade has shorter board lengths, more color variations, small dings, and other quality imperfections because of machining issues. This wood grade has more than a 10% waste factor.
Allowable defects – A small amount of unfilled knots, and small finish defects such as skips, color variations, scratches, and bubbles.

Wood Aquarelle

3

Wooden aquarelle is a coloring technique for wooden surfaces that involves pigmented water. This coloring technique allows for the product of individually unique pieces. The addition of liquid pigments on a wooden surface creates an autonomous color response. The wood will get random color-gradients, soft transitions, streaks, and other color nuances. The only controllable aspect in this type of coloring technique is the color palette that is used. The color will spread randomly over and throughout the wood after the liquid pigment has been poured onto the wood.2
The first step in wooden aquarelle is to clamp the wooden panel onto a water-proof frame. After the wooden panel is secured in the clamp, then the pigmented water can be added and it will soak into the wood. The water will evaporated in a few hours, and after drying the colored wood needs to be varnished with a transparent finish.
There are many unique uses for wood that has been colored in this method, but I think it would make a gorgeous floor in someone’s home.
