Wood works

As the winter draws in, many people will be thinking about making their interiors snug and cosy. One of the best ways to do this is with timber, which can create a warm and homely feel, while being thoroughly chic.

There are numerous options available on the market, including SertiWOOD which brings the latest on-trend wood finishes for internal walls and ceilings with options, styles and colours to suit every taste. The range has been popular since it was showcased on Grand Designs and includes factory-finished painted timber in a wide range of finishes or natural wood.

Siberian Larch, for example, is a natural golden brown larch that can be used both inside and outside on walls and ceilings. Slow grown, it’s FSC certified and sustainable.
