A fresh wooden home highlights affordable natural materials

A favorite material for rural dwelling, wood is both beautiful and functional. In today's idea book, we are going to show you a fresh take on wood. This house has the cozy Scandinavian feel but the traditional Asian Zen is still evident. Let's take a closer look.

From the outside, we can already see the prevailing material used in the entire properly. The wood comes in different tone, color, and texture, which makes the overall look interesting. On the ground floor, we can see a lighter and smooth version, while the one above is darker and more texturized. We love the wood element that highlights the terrace. It's just one of the affordable natural materials you will see in the house. 

Open space

Once you enter the house, you find yourself in an open space concept where the living room, dining room, and kitchen flows continuously one after the other. Let's examine the areas closer in the next photos.

Mezzanine

Have you noticed the stairs on the corner? That one leads to the mezzanine where it can serve as a multi-purpose room or a storage area. What an excellent use of space!

Living room

The living room features your typical clean and simple Asian design. The high ceiling and the corner lights, however, gives it at modern feel.

Dining room

This part of the house exudes the no-fuss character of Nordic design with the white walls and ceiling, as well as wood elements on the furniture and the floor. We love the dining set, which can seat four or more people. 

Kitchen

The kitchen is quite utilitarian with the steel countertop. It's low maintenance and easy to clean.

Bathroom

Like the rest of the house, the bathroom features a simple and minimalist design. We love how every thing is while--from the wall, ceiling, furnishing--making the area look bigger than it is. 

If you would like to check out another wooden house, there's a charming wooden home fit for the countryside that you should see.
