Wood adds warmth

This industrial-style Berlin home is a showcase of smart design combined with urban aesthetics. The space was naturally quite dark to begin with, so rather than try to change this, the owners emphasized it with a colour palette to match. Meanwhile, natural oak floors soften the mood and bring warmth to the restrained, yet glamorous interior.

This multilevel apartment offers a continual extended living space spread over four floors, each space connected to the next by industrial-style metal staircases. The home was designed as an open-plan living space with floor-to-ceiling windows added to let natural light in. Throughout the home, natural oak floors have been used to contrast the dark walls, design pieces and quirky objects.

Multiple shades of grey in the bedroom-level lounge area create an equally moody but slightly softer feel than the black downstairs. The varying textures of wood, leather, concrete, carpet and linen keep the effect interesting.

Natural wood floors

A true classic, a natural wood floor will add a sense of warmth and natural beauty to your home. Depending on the design, they can be lively or calm, rustic or elegant. Our wide selection includes different board sizes, surface treatments and shades from light and airy to rich and golden.

Floors chosen for this home:

Dining area: Oak Vedbo. This single-strip oak floor has a naturally relaxed, warm personality with a rich array of tones, enhanced by the hand scraped linseed oil finish. The planks are chosen specifically for their high number of knots and big grain features to create an exciting floor.

Living area: Oak Johan. The natural oil stain on this single-strip oak floor enriches its golden-brown finish, and accentuates the knots and cracks of the timber for a truly rustic expression. Each board is carefully brushed and hand-scraped to bring out the character of the grain and highlight the texture of the wood.

Bedroom: Oak Village. The blonde colour palette found in this single-strip oak floor is punctuated with large knots and cracks for a rustic look and vintage expression. Each board is carefully brushed to bring out the character of the grain and highlight the natural texture of the wood. The surface is treated with natural oil.

Upstairs hallway: Oak Tower. This warm single-strip oak floor features a muted colour palette and long planks, which add depth to its clean expression. Each board is carefully brushed to bring out the character of the grain and highlight the natural texture of the wood.

Bar: Oak Starnberg. The rustic character of this naturally toned single-strip oak floor creates a soft backdrop to a quirky interior. It features filled and partly filled cracks and knots, resulting in a lively, yet elegant floor. The surface is treated with natural oil to enhance the soft feeling
