As we enter the New Year, many people are moving into a new home, or simply looking to spruce up their current living spaces. You may be wondering, what this has to do with Timber2UDirect, well, let us explain. Timber can actually be a great source of inspiration for your interior, whether it’s for practical or decorative purposes. Here, we are going to explain to you some of the brilliant hardwood timber items that you can introduce into your home as we head into 2022. 

Hardwood timber feature walls and panelling

Panelling has been an extremely popular trend in the interior industry for the last couple of years, and it’s no wonder. This technique can completely transform a space by introducing texture and an artistic flare, depending on the style chosen for your room. It also helps to welcome colour blocking into the design of your walls, really making your interior stand out from the rest. 

Classic hardwood timber flooring 

Hardwood timber flooring really can rejuvenate every room in the house with its distinct colouring, offering the perfect finishing touch. By adding this kind of flooring into rooms around your house, you are investing in a long-lasting material as opposed to the classic carpet that will start to look weathered after some time. Timber 2u Direct have a wide range of timber to choose from, so whatever theme you have in mind for your home, we can help you find the perfect match!

Wooden bench tops

Although utilising timber in the kitchen may not be as popular as it used to be, this is definitely a trend that seems to be making a comeback. When tied into other aspects of your home such as your flooring or window frames, this material can really help to bring the whole space to life. 

Worried about the durability of this material around water? Nobody says that you need to use the same textures throughout certain spaces in your home. Timber compliments lots of different colours, so why not save this for the more social areas of your kitchen? Rustic is the new chic! 

Hardwood Timber furniture 

Another feature that is making a resurgence is wooden furniture. I mean, did vintage ever go out of style?

Depending on whether you use light or dark oak, timber furniture is a great way to incorporate either a rustic or clean scandi feel around your home. What’s more, these pieces can easily be redressed or updated should you be in the mood for a change. Why not incorporate a wooden bench into your dining area, for example?

Hardwood timber decking 

Although there may only be a few days a year where we Brits can get outside and enjoy the sun, when these days do roll around, it’s only natural that you want to feel like you’re in paradise!

Decking is an extremely popular design choice for gardens up and down the country, and for good reason. Not only can this completely transform social spaces, but with anti-slip technology, it can also be much safer. Not to mention, it also looks much cleaner too!

Window blinds

Utilising timber as a way to block out the world is a great way to dress your windows. Although the blinds around your home are something you may not have previously paid much attention to, even the smallest quirky design features can really change the whole dynamic of a room. Wooden shutters are a great way to bring warmth to a space, in addition to making a room feel more homely. What’s more, with timber’s natural insulating qualities, this is a great way to take a small step in being more eco-friendly too!

Space saving doors

The sliding door was invented many years ago as the perfect space saving alternative to normal entryways. A popular design feature throughout the world is the reclaimed barn door. There’s something about these that really do bring a sense of comfort to any space. Regardless of what vibe you choose to go for – vintage or modern, hardwood timber sliding doors are a great way to tie in different colours and textures. 


Lighting is often one area that people forget about when thinking of new ways to incorporate wood around their home. Timber is a durable and versatile material and due to this, has a flexible and malleable nature. Utilising even the smallest amount of oak within your lighting fixtures can return striking results.
