The current lumber shortage has made it difficult for many architects and building developers to implement the rustic, Barnwood-inspired designs they want. This blog post will teach you how to incorporate wood elements into your design without sacrificing quality or slowing down construction so much that it risks your business.
Incorporate Natural Elements
Incorporate natural elements into your project using materials like stone or metal if appropriate. It may take more time and/or money than adding wood emphasizers, but it’ll make your design stand out from the rest, and will be worth it in the long run.
Use stone when you need to create a rustic look or give an otherwise modern building more of a natural feel; this material also adds warmth to any space because stone is naturally such a warm element. Choose metal if your project’s style can accommodate it – remember that metals like copper offer their own unique benefits beyond just adding functionality as needed!
Bring Your Garden to Life
Also, consider using CDA wood with other materials alongside them (such as mixing CDA Wood into garden edging). If possible, use some type of green plant life around them too- they’ll add not only color but something alive to contrast with all the other materials! Plants are a great eye-catcher.
Lastly, you might want to consider going to your local flea market for vintage, but timeless pieces. You’ll want to find pieces that aren’t overbearing, but add just the right touch to the space. Think of rustic large wall clocks or even porcelain white jars for the kitchen. Whatever your taste, you’ll be sure to find it a great addition.
The lumber shortage has severely limited the availability of high-quality wood in recent months. For some builders, this is a problem that can’t be solved, but for others there are solutions.
