With hundreds of different types of wood on offer, it can be overwhelming when it comes to choosing your furniture. Well, by following some simple design tips you can match different woods to your different styles, and make a maximum visual impact with your décor. When choosing your wood, as a general rule try to keep the tone in line with your color palette. If you do have a mixture of wooden furniture in your room though make sure to keep it balanced.
If you want to use darker woods in a lighter room then you can soften them with a subtle colored rug to tie the piece in.
Finally, you can use finishing pieces in an accent color to tie a mixture of wooden finishes together. If you have a small sized room, then select lighter woods, such as maple, pine or birch to make it appear larger.

Although it is wise to keep your larger furniture pieces in the same wood tone, blending different grains and undertones can be a great way to achieve a stunning interior.
Upholstery can also be used to mimic the wooden tones and make more mismatched wooden furniture work in a room.
For example, if you have a very dark walnut table next to an oak dresser, it can be challenging to work around the different tones.
Alternatively, if you want to use your wooden furniture to add drama and command attention in your interior design then use dark woods with subtle red undertones. If you have a wide selection of colors throughout your décor and upholstery then try to stick to limited wood tones, which complement one another. Contrast dark colored furniture on lighter wooden floors, or vice versa to make an assertive statement, or mix very light woods to very warm ones in order to create a natural, rustic design. Don’t be tempted to keep all the dark woods on one side and the light ones on the other, as this will make an unappealing imbalance.

If the majority of the wood in your room is a dark mahogany, making a more airy beech piece feel out of place, then simply add warm, light yellows through furnishings and drapery to keep the space visually appealing. To get around this problem simply choose an accent color, in royal blue or burgundy for example, and use smaller pieces such as pillows, vases, table lamps or even floral arrangements across both pieces of furniture to bring them together.
Alternatively, if you do want to use a wide range of different woods then pick a softer and more subdued palette to avoid a messy look.
