While wood has been used in home decor for centuries, how it’s curated, used, and styled is subject to trends and transitions. In this segment of The Marc and Mandy Show, Warren Rose of Monaghan Lumber Specialties shares expert advice on how to use wood in a contemporary space.
Q: How to go about choosing the right flooring for my space.
Warren Rose: When choosing the right flooring for your space, you want to consider many things. The layout of your room, the sizes of the planks that are available, whether it’s a wide plank, solid wood, engineered wood, or vinyl plank. There is also the livability factor: what suits your home and how you function as a family.
Q: What sorts of wood features work best in contemporary design?
Warren Rose: There’s many choices in wood features for your contemporary design. We offer live edge, shiplap features, white washed and other paint stains, reclaimed, and handcrafted windows to choose from, amongst more. One great, contemporary look is solid wood exteriors combined with aluminum cladding.
Q: How do I select quality building products without going over budget?
Warren Rose: Whether you’re working with a design build firm or your a DIY-er, the Monaghan team can help you to stay on budget, while giving you access to many different options in floors, doors, trims, stock items, and special orders.
