Curtains must be drawn to let more light in and plenty of light source such as chandelier, pendant lamps, down lights and table lamps to brighten things up in the evening.

When choosing reclaimed wood, use reclaimed wood from the same source or multiple sources. Sizes can be uniform or varied but arranged together to add a random yet orderly design.

The wooden feature wall may not cover the entire wall on one side of the room. Each piece of wood is carefully arranged and fitted to create a column or completely cover one aspect of the wall. These wall accent are typically ceiling height and is usually the wall where the bed is put against.

More Than Just A Wall

These feature walls serve as both the headboard for the bed frame and feature wall rolled into one. Usually, desk lamp, downlights, pendant lights, mounted reading light, shelves and built-in small wooden side tables are applied to complete the look.

For more lighting in the evening, use an elaborate modern pendant light or chandelier with multiple light sources such as one show in the photo below. Remember to allow plenty of light into the room during the day by drawing the curtains.
