Renovating with blondes

Just like a coat of white paint, light timber flooring and decking can add a fresh, neutral canvas for interior design schemes and landscaping. As a natural material, timber also helps to create a sense of tranquillity. Timbers from the ‘blonde palette’ are an attractive option for renovators wanting to create a sense of openness and space. Lighter timber species, such as Blackbutt, Messmate or Stringybark, can help open up a small living area to make it appear larger. While darker timber species need lots of artificial or natural light, pale timbers can pick up and accentuate available light.
