Recreate your favourite interior trends: Dark wood
As bright and colourful rooms are being replaced with darker tones, wood is making a comeback in interior design. Wooden surfaces and walls make a room look inviting and warm, and homeowners are returning to the time tested trend. The nordic style of living is centred around muted, dark colours, and it is growing in popularity as more people are embracing slow living and minimalism. Film star Dakota Johnson got the attention of interior lovers everywhere when she allowed Architectural Digest to take photos of her L.A. home, which is a testament to the dark wood trend.
The problem is that wood is expensive. But with Vinyl Depot, you can make your furniture or walls look like they are wooden, when really, they are made out of a more affordable material.
The dark wood trend began to grow in popularity in 2018, and has been unstoppable ever since. The trend typically centres around white walls and dark wooden furniture, creating a balanced interior look that enhances natural light and draws attention to the furniture.
But how can you incorporate the dark wood trend in different rooms of your home on a budget?
In the kitchen…
One of the easiest ways to incorporate the dark wood trend into your home is to apply self-adhesive vinyl to your kitchen cabinets. If you’re bored with how your kitchen looks, or it looks slightly run down, there is no need to purchase new cabinets and counters. We recommend applying our marble vinyl to the countertop, and using one of our many wood vinyls on the counter doors and drawers. Our vinyl is great value and easy to apply, meaning you can revitalise your kitchen on a small budget.
In the living room or the bedroom...
The easiest way to incorporate the dark wood trend into your living room or bedroom, without getting new and expensive floorboards installed, is to apply wooden vinyl to numerous items of furniture. Start with some of your larger furniture, such as a chest of drawers or a cabinet. If you’ve got an old chest of drawers that you want to upcycle, or you’ve found some old furniture on Facebook marketplace for £20, our wooden vinyl will transform it completely. By applying our self-adhesive vinyl to the exterior of the drawers, and by installing new drawer handles, you can make a second-hand piece of furniture look vintage.
If the dark wood interior trend appeals to you, we can help you achieve a new look for your home without having to shell out large amounts of money. Visit the Vinyl Depot website to browse our wood vinyl collection, as we have a range of different designs to choose from. If you do use our vinyl to recreate the dark wood trend in your home, we’d love to see pictures of the finished result! Email us your pictures at firstname.lastname@example.org and you may even be featured on our social media channels. We can’t wait to see your creations.
