Embrace timber this season with these top tips

We’re in the midst of autumn, with winter right around the corner. With the weather getting colder outside, we’re constantly looking for ways to warm our interiors and feel as cosy as possible. Luckily, there are ways that timber can help you accomplish this. Natural wood tones are making a huge comeback when it comes to design, and it’s not hard to see why. Timber adds warmth to your home and is associated with feelings of comfort and security. These feelings are particular valuable during the winter, but should be embraced year round!

The following tips will help you make the most of your timber this season, and beyond.


Keep things organic with natural wood tones: From light pines or oak to deeper mahogany, timber comes in many different shades. Keeping things natural when it comes to your timber surfaces will create an organic, earthy look within the home that will make your space feel more grounded. Enhance the look of your wood by opting for one of our quality wood stains. Sadolin Classic can be used on all exterior or interior wood and offers deep penetrating protection for your timber surfaces while allowing the beauty of the natural wood to shine through.


Change the look of your wooden furniture with a fresh coat of paint: Is your timber furniture ready for a change? Give your pieces a new lease on life by painting them a beautiful new colour!

Make sure your wood is properly protected: Our wood varnishes help to beautify your timber while offering hard wearing protection for years and years to come. From bannisters and tables to doors and floors, we’ve got the solution for you and our non-yellowing formulas have the additional benefit of being touch dry in just one hour!

Choose wood when possible: If you’re in the market for new furnishings, try and find wooden pieces. Sustainably sourced wood is a fantastic option for virtually anything around the house as wood is 100% renewable. Because wood grows naturally, it’s also recyclable, reusable, biodegradable and extremely durable, making it an excellent material for furniture or accessories. There are so many different wood designs to choose from, so you’re certain to find something to fit your unique style. If needed, make sure to protect your new pieces with our long lasting varnishes.
