Chip and Joanna Gaines decked out this master bathroom with new gray paint and a shiplap accent wall on HGTV's Fixer Upper. A large mirror is framed with wood that matches the accent wall, and a modern light fixture illuminates his and a hers vanity with a marble countertop and rectangular vessel sinks. The original claw foot tub was kept and refinished, and new tile flooring installed.
This minimalist mid century modern kitchen features medium grain wood cabinets paired with polished concrete floors. A professional refrigerator is built into the cabinets, while a half wall allows you to peek into the adjacent room.
Exotic wood paneling and cabinets give major design pizzazz to this modern kitchen. The zigzag of the wood's grain brings a sense of movement to the space and the coffee color warms up the stainless steel accents.
A streamlined teak wood vanity boasts sleek white countertops. The wood accent wall complements the exposed wood grain of the double vanity. Minimalistic chrome faucets and simple sconces on the bathroom mirror create a simplistic design.
A neutral tile backsplash complements the wood grain of the brown cabinets. Smooth white countertops provide contrast to the dark cabinets and brighten the space, which leads to a colorful adjacent dining room.
Wooden cabinets and drawers provide storage space for craft supplies, creating a handy craft station that keeps this home organized and uncluttered. The beautiful wood grain is complemented by a neutral marble countertop. A fun wrapping paper storage system also provides a spot for easy gift wrapping.
A streamlined wood fireplace with flat screen TV serves as the focal point for the sitting area. A glass coffee table allows the tropical blue hues throughout the space to stand out against the natural wood grain of the fireplace and hearth.
This open-plan kitchen uses a two-pac cabinetry in a double strength of the wall color. Feature cabinets in a contemporary wood grain are designed to draw attention to the custom-made tile backsplash and feature on the front of the island.
Hardwood flooring leads up to the wood staircase where the direction of the wood grain changes guiding the movement through the foyer space. A soft sea green wall color above the lower wall white paneling adds subtle color to the design. A rich wood piano is complimented with a stained glass lamp creating an inviting look.
Use wood stain to add to the aged look — darker stain will show the 'distressed' marks better. Use a rag to rub the stain into the recessed areas, then remove excess stain with the same rag, wiping in the direction of the wood grain. Allow to dry completely before proceeding.
