How to Mix Wood Tones in Your Home
We love to mix and match different woods in the same room. See how to combine different wood furniture and finishes for a modern, intentional look.
5 Ways to Mix Wood Tones
Room & Board offers a wide variety of wood furniture. The good news about mixing them all together is there isn't a wrong answer.
Select Common Undertones
Shades of wood vary, but they generally fall into either a warm or cool-toned group. Combining wood with the same undertones will keep a room from feeling disconnected.
Our unstained woods will have a naturally warm look and complement each other.
- White oak
All of our wood stains have a cool undertone, making them easy to mix and match.
- Maple with charcoal stain
- Ash with bark stain
- Maple with shell stain
- Ash with sand stain
Use Each Wood Twice
If you like an eclectic look, but still want everything to feel cohesive, the trick is to use each wood twice. The result is an interesting, layered look that feels pulled together.
Trees live happily together in the forest and they can in your home, too. Because Room & Board uses natural wood and stain colors inspired by nature, our wood furniture is authentic and goes together without a lot of effort.
