Modern Villa with Timber Floors and Ceiling

2.06.2022

Vienna Woods customer Dan Szczepanski, share’s his experience working with Vienna Woods and the reasons behind why he chose to renovate his home with Esther American Oak Pureline both on his floors and ceilings. 

What was your inspiration when designing your home? 

Our home is a villa in a ‘special character area’ street, however we didn’t want a villa so we knew when undertaking the renovations that we wanted to make certain changes that would remove the villa aesthetic from our home. Controversial we know – but we wanted something more modern. We were inspired by the Scandinavian look and feel and how that would suit a more open plan lifestyle. We have a 3.3m stud on the main floor and although we have worked hard to erase all traces of the villa interior, we wanted to make the most of the ceilings and retain some character. So we decided to install timber on both the floor and ceilings. It brings in a lot of warmth as it offsets the start white and black of the modern elements of the interior. It also makes our ceiling look even higher, which is an added bonus! 

What was the overall look and feel you were trying to achieve?

While we wanted a modern look, we didn’t want anything to severe that some homes can get when a lot of white and black is used in the interior spaces. So it was important to incorporate beautiful timber in order to warm it up. The timber floors and ceilings break up the clean, crisp white really nicely and complement the overall look and feel. Adding timber to our ceilings also created a very interesting feature as it adds a lot of character to our home. 

Why did you choose this Vienna Woods flooring? 

The Vienna Range is second to none. The quality is prevalent in all their different ranges. We loved the Esther American Oak Pureline because of how it complemented the rest of our interior and really delivered the warmth we were looking for. The timber was also very competitive in terms of buildability and price. The staff  are all very personable and made us feel at ease the moment we engaged with them. Their assistance made it really easy to make our decision.
