Designing Your Timber Frame Great Room

Large rooms are often the focus of houses with wooden frames. Many imagine that their home is open and spacious, including a large room that leads to the kitchen and dining room. Large rooms serve a variety of purposes; Fun and relaxation are the two most common. 

There are many things to consider when designing timber frame wall construction in a large space. First, you can think of different system framing options and what type of framing system you want to use. Demanding or simple, wooden frames provide warmth and space, especially in areas where you have fun. 

A nice wooden-framed room is always fun to decorate because wood can emphasize variations in taste and style in decoration. Beautiful chandeliers are often used in homes with wooden frames, and homeowners also use accented lamps, usually modern light rails, which are placed on the wood to add an accent or additional lighting to the room. 

It all depends on the type of lighting you are looking for, but the choice of your lighting fixtures can make your home more attractive.

Another consideration when designing your large space is to place a window to take advantage of views, passive solar heating, and natural light. Many homeowners of wooden frames choose to install window wells. This can add dramatic detail to the design, but can also increase costs because windows are a big part of the budget for a new home.
