The fastest route to the post and beam look! Order Timber Accents Online
Many people LOVE the look of artistic timber elements, but cannot justify the investment for a custom designed timber package. These stock decorative timber accents are ready to go for easy purchase and easy installation. So you get stylish timber accents – without the cost associated with custom design! You have four styles to choose from. Each style is constructed of high quality green Douglas fir with a light rough-sawn texture, and you can choose from five of our most popular accent pieces. As you add items to your cart, here are the top three quick-and-dirty tips you will want to keep in mind:
1) Elements such as siding accents, colors and timber accents should be repeated at least three times to establish a theme. An odd number of elements will appear more balanced.
2) All architecture and design uses strength and elegance as basic building blocks. As you personalize your style, you will also be using a balance of strength and elegance. This touches all the choices you will make: colors, textures, space, height, volume, lighting, fixtures, etc. With regards to your timber accents, keep this simple rule in mind: straight angular lines represent strength while curves and arches represent elegance.
3) Don’t fall into the ‘make everything equal and symmetrical’ trap. Acknowledge that beauty and uniqueness can be found in asymmetry. You are welcome to try what I like to call the “fuzzy one-eyed approach.”
Step back from your plans, close one eye, and setting until things look fuzzy. Look at your choices with this faraway perspective – no thoughts about alignment with corners, windows, etc. How do things look as a whole? Do certain spots feel cluttered? Do certain spots feel naked? Too high? Too narrow? Too cramped? After you’ve identified what you might like for your big picture, zoom in and work with the close-up details. This could also be called the zoom-out/zoom-in method. I will typically go back and forth a number of times to get things right for our clients.
