Timber frames contribute to both modern and traditional forms of design — January 20, 2012
When you build your own home it is obvious that you need to start from scratch with everything. This does not just mean starting from scratch in terms of planning the layout and the structure of the house. It also goes beyond that. You need to plan the interior design of your home as soon as the structure itself has been built so that it is attractive and ready for you to move in.
One of the biggest decisions you will have to make at this stage is to determine whether modern interior design or traditional interior design will work best in your home. You might even want to go for a kind of mixture of the two if you are confident that you can’t make the fusion style work to your advantage.
If you have chosen to build a timber frame house then you are in luck, especially if you plans include stipulations to leave the frame exposed in places inside. This is because timber frames really add to a rustic, traditional aesthetic code, but they also add to a more contemporary form of interior design. Naturally, they contribute to the juxtaposition of both styles if you choose to merge them.
