A DIY expert has insisted that wooden interiors are very much in vogue at present.
Carolyn Park, head of design practice for Carolyn Park Interior Design, observed that DIY projects using timber are very fashionable at the moment.
“I would say it’s more than popular,” she commented. “It’s the style and feel and the fact that it is quality.”
Ms Park added that using the material for interiors is also more environmentally friendly than choosing plastics.
This follows claims made recently by DIY expert Sarah Lonsdale that cork flooring is one of the best ways of insulating against heat loss.
Writing for the Daily Telegraph, Ms Lonsdale explained that in addition to features like double glazed windows, cork flooring can help to improve insulation levels.
Cork and lino flooring are biodegradable, she said, adding that they do not retain the sort of materials that cause suffering for those with allergies.
