Expose the Bones of Your House for an Elegant Touch
There can be beauty in the raw materials that make up your home. Show them off with care and the effect is surprisingly warm and welcoming

It?s not always deliberate that a great piece of work is left unfinished ? see Schubert?s 8th Symphony or Mozart?s Requiem, for example.
However, sometimes in the creative process there?s a realisation of the beauty in raw or ?unfinished? materials. And in the case of homes and other buildings, there?s an aesthetic choice about whether or not to expose these elements ? from structural steel to bare concrete and shadeless lightbulbs ? which might ordinarily be hidden. Should you dare to bare" Be inspired by these ideas for creating your own unfinished masterpiece.

Dare to bare? structural timber

Exposed structural timber is a much more common sight than some of the other materials in this story. And it doesn?t just feature in Tudor cottages or barn conversions, either, but in thoroughly contemporary properties, too. Raw timber on show in a home creates a sense of bringing natural elements inside, and there?s a real life essence to be gained from this look.
Structural oak beams in particular bring so much feeling to a space. And in terms of design, dark woods are wonderful for a framing effect against crisp white walls and ceilings ? great for demarcating areas of an open-plan space. Cherry and lighter woods work well as part of an overall scheme; bring them in through wooden furniture, floors and staircases.

Dare to bare? electrical accessories

Wiring can be used in interesting ways. The most common is to hang lighting cables in an arrangement that suggests a sense of temporariness, as in an art studio or a construction site where festoon lights have been hung for a specific purpose.
The opportunities for incorporating wiring in this way are really only in relation to lighting schemes, but with a little design flair the possibilities are endless. Cable sleeves can be created from a massive range of materials and in any colour. Again, designs should be checked, installed and certified by a qualified electrician.

Dare to bare? bricks (in an industrial property)

Bricks and mortar are rough and cold ? not a look that immediately comes to mind when you?re designing a cosy living room. Yet using exposed brickwork, especially on one feature wall, has great design merit. The subtle irregularitie...
