When it comes to home décor, knotty wood adds an aesthetic charm you can’t find in all drywall or tile spaces. Like the different colors that swirl throughout a piece of marble, knots are fun and add uniqueness to every piece. Wooden walls or floors with knots aren’t as bland or uniform, giving the room personality and something interesting to look at upon arrival.
At the same time, this type of wood is rustic and natural feeling. Not every piece of wood is perfect and using knotted wood shows the simplicity and appreciation of nature. This is the perfect material for large dens with fireplaces, or rustic kitchens in a cabin. Knotty décor can add the element of nature to any room its put in especially when matched with a natural floor or furniture.
Bringing the outdoors inside for the more rustic look and feel is a major interior design trend right now. Wood floors are being mixed with natural stone fireplaces and even elements of water in small fountains. Knotty wood looks real, unlike stained and lacquered wood floors that completely take away from the environmental feeling of the room.
