Why choose wooden decor and furniture for your home?
Over the last 10 years, timber products’ effect on our minds and bodies has become a major field of research. This means there is a great amount of studies offering scientifically measured results that support this idea: wood exposure is great for your health. “The studies examining the effects of wooden rooms and furnishings clearly demonstrate that the presence of wood has benefits that mimic the effect of spending time outside in nature,” Planet Ark said.
“The feelings of natural warmth and comfort that wood elicits in people has the effect of lowering blood pressure and heart rates, reducing stress and anxiety and increasing positive social interactions. Wood products within a room have also been shown to improve indoor air quality by moderating humidity. Wood is healthy, neutral and emits zero electrostatic charge."
Wood also prevents echoes from bouncing around the room by absorbing sound waves. Wood is effective at sound insulation. Many concert halls around the world use wood since it naturally dampens sound, creating the perfect tone within the room.
Although wood decor may be more expensive, it is well worth the extra expense. Wood furniture is durable, will last for many years and can easily be given a new desirable finish by sanding, polishing, painting, color washing etc. You are adding a high-quality timeless item to your house when you buy wooden!
