As a general rule, pine style timbers tend to be lighter in appearance and are recommended for cottages, heritage properties, country manors and estates.Â Oak woods are generally darker and used more in contemporary properties. That said, the traditional appearance of oak is also great for older properties and, ultimately, the type of wood you choose is due to personal choice. Of course, we can make recommendations if you want!
