Introducing Nebraska oak

Published - 13 May 2015
Nebraska oak is a current favourite amongst our customers, and it's easy to see why. This versatile option is a brilliant way of introducing natural wood tones into a room, while still keeping things light and modern - whether you're thinking of installing some made-to-measure sliding wardrobes, or smaller furniture features. Here are some examples of how you can use Nebraska oak to elegantly fulfil the potential of your living space, and create some great fitted and freestanding furniture.

The ideal headboard
 
If you're looking for some inspiration on how to bring more vibrancy into your bedroom décor, you could consider installing a new quality headboard. One of the problems with using wood patterns in a large feature like this is that it can make a room dark and gloomy, especially in a room where you want softer lighting. But with Nebraska oak, it's easy to see that this feature retains the warm, natural look that you get with a wood design, while being subtle and welcoming. All in all, it's exactly the kind of pattern you want in a bedroom feature. The LED lights running along the top of the headboard provide some great practical illumination, while fitting seamlessly with the overall design. Likewise, the carefully located spaces for sockets and switches mean that the feature remains stylish and functional. A pair of floating bedside tables complete the design, incorporating the same wood pattern.

Subtle sliding door wardrobes
 
In another example, the varied tones of wood in Nebraska oak can be used to make a large feature, like a long sliding wardrobe, more interesting. Sometimes people shy away from softer wood tones because they think they're too neutral. While a block of colour or a chrome surface may create a dominating, modern look, a wood pattern can be more effective in bringing out subtle design features. Here you can see how a special floral glass design - manufactured by Excellent - adds a touch of individuality to the room. This feature might be overwhelmed by a more imposing door pattern, but with Nebraska oak, it clearly belongs.

Light a spacious corner wardrobes
 
Another great thing about selecting a softer-toned, natural pattern for your furniture is that it can create a sense of light and space, especially if used with mirrors. Here you can see a corner wardrobe that alternates between mirrored doors and the Nebraska patten. Corner wardrobes can really come to dominate the appearance of a room, so it's important that they're designed to complement the look you're hoping to achieve. The skirting around the design uses the same wood tones to make the feature look even more at home.
