Light, casual, simple and slightly industrial. Plywood is all of these things, and, oh yeah, it’s cost effective (cheap!). Just a simple stain can make the most basic material look polished and purposeful, but even if you go raw, the right attention to detail and planning can turn a material that used to be thought of as “half done”, into a look that conveys “less is more, WAY more”.
At Leighton By Design, we talk a lot about bringing the outdoors in and one way to do that is with plywood. What better way to tone down and warm up your space? On a ceiling it evokes a feeling that you’re in a modern cabin; use it on a wall for texture – to rough up a room that would otherwise be all white. There are so many gorgeous wood options out there these days and plywood should be considered as a great balance in the traditional painted and polished room.
Form function beauty.
