There’s lots to consider when designing the interiors for your new oak framed space. Unlike typical houses, the structure of the building doesn’t just keep your things dry, the oak frame plays a part in the overall character of the interior spaces too. 

Early on in the design of an oak framed room it can be advantageous to imagine and plan out the spaces to decide how much of the oak frame to leave exposed. Many of those who prefer a contemporary style choose less wood in open spaces while more traditional tastes might prefer to pay homage to cosy and comfortable rooms.
