Posted in Railway Sleeper News by admin on October 25th 2016

Oak railway sleepers are a great choice when it comes to interior design projects – particularly when used for mixed wood wall creations. Extremely well sought after, railways sleepers can transform your conventional home into a haven that boasts the most stunning aesthetics. 

 

Let’s explore the different oak grades:

 

Premier or Prime Grade

Known as the highest grade, with 83% oak material, prime grades will give a clean and uniformed look to your design.

 

Natural Grade

This mid-range oak grade can display colour variations and grey patterns – ideal for a mixed wood wall with added interest.

 

Rustic Grade

The rustic oak grade contains exciting vibrant colour patterns and variations that can add further quirks to the design.

 

Antique Grade

Often displaying less colour variation than other oak grades, antique grades are suitable for wood walls that exude character.

 

Millrun Grade

A combination of the prime and natural grades, millrun possess the best oak characteristics to create a flawless design.

 

Now you are familiar with the different oak grades, you are ready for our easy-to-follow guidelines that will help you to install your wood walls:

 

  • Get the right measurements for your project; then cut the wood in accordance with your specifications.
  • Sand each board to make it smooth, especially at each end.
  • To further enhance the ‘mixed’ wall look, apply different mixes of wax staining to each section.
  • When dry, bring all the boards together so you can decide on any additional colour mixes or glaze.
  • Equipped with different panelling nails, you can now start securing the wood to the wall.

 

Balance

The key to a harmonious balance is to get the right amount of contrast. You can incorporate dark-stained pieces of furniture with whitewashed elements – to create the feel of a light and airy room.

 

Dominant Wood Tones

Neutral wood tones can provide a dominant effect in the background, without going off theme. Best achieved through adding two or three similar types of wood tone finishes, these should be applied throughout the design.

 

In the Mix

For the ultimate finish, complement your mixed wood wall with accentuating colours - this can be in the form of ancillary fixtures such as stools, lamp shades and scatter cushions. These elements can help you to achieve continuity throughout the room.
