Five wood looks we can’t wait to try in 2023

January is all about renewal, and this January we’ve been focusing on new things we’d like to try over the coming year. Of course, this includes some exciting timber styles that we’ll be incorporating into our interiors and exteriors. Read on to find out about the five wood looks we can’t wait to have some fun with in 2023.


Embrace wooden accessories throughout the home: One of the quickest and easiest ways to add more timber to your home is through accessories such as bowls, boards, trays, candle holders, frames, mirrors, and lamps. These items come in at varying price points, so you’re sure to find something within your budget (and with such a wide variety, you’re bound to find something that you love as well).


Choose an earthy brown woodstain: Earthy brown colours are trending across the board this year. Shades such as caramel, terracotta, cinnamon, walnut, and rust are big in both fashion and design. You can enjoy this trend when it comes to your timber by choosing a brown woodstain. Sadolin Classic All Purpose Woodstain is our most versatile woodstain, and it is formulated for use on both exterior and interior wood. This unique product deeply penetrates timber and offers unbeatable protection. Try the shades Redwood, Teak, or Antique Pine for a stylish look.


Go bold with colourful garden furniture: Painting your wooden garden furniture a bold colour will enliven your garden and create interest within the space. If you’re looking for the perfect formula to beautifully coat and protect your wooden garden furnishings, look no further than Sadolin Superdec Satin. This product offers exceptional protection with fantastic colour payoff, and resists cracking, peeling, and flaking. With a highly durable opaque finish, Superdec works seamlessly on wood, weathered plastic, steel, cladding, concrete, masonry and exterior joinery.

Paint a fun pattern on your wood: One of the great things about wood is that it can be painted and repainted time and time again, so long as the bones have been properly preserved. Wood furnishings and accessories are the perfect places to get creative and express your individual style. We suggest painting your wood with a fun pattern or mural. This could mean improving the look of wooden picture frames with some polka dots, or making your wooden mirror more interesting with some stripes. Maybe you’d like to enhance some of the detail on your mantle by using contrasting colours, or maybe you’re intrigued by the thought of drawing a sleeping cat onto the seat of your wooden chair. Whatever you think of, you can create with a little bit of imagination and some good wood paint!


Invest in a wood feature piece: If you choose a quality piece of wooden furniture and take great care of it, you can have it for generations to come. There are so many beautiful timber furnishings to choose from, and because of its timeless nature, wood will never go out of style. From an antique chest of drawers to a modern coffee table, or a vintage credenza to a farmhouse dining table, wood can serve a variety of very useful function and work well in any space.


We hope 2023 is the year of wonderful wood, and the above are just five ideas to help inspire you! Call into your local Sadolin stockist for everything you need to protect and beautify your timber.
