Many people LOVE the look of these artistic timber elements. These stock decorative timber accents are fast turn and easy to install. You have four styles to choose from. Each style is constructed of high quality green Douglas fir with a light rough-sawn texture, and you can choose from five of our most popular accent pieces.
Traditional Series: Straight, Simple, and Functional – with Minimal Detailing
Classic: Arched, Graceful, and Rustic – with Curved Detailing
Craftsman: Low, Cozy, and Horizontal – with Angular Detailing
Euro: Curvy, Sophisticated, and Elegant – with Scroll Detailing
Here are the top three tips to ensure you get an excellent result when planning for beautifying your home with timber accents
1. Elements such as siding accents, colors and timber accentsshould be repeated at least three times to establish a theme. An odd number of elements will appear more balanced.
2. Architecture and design uses strength and elegance as basic building blocks.
As you personalize your style, you will also be using a balance of strength and elegance. This touches all the choices you will make: colors, textures, space, height, volume, lighting, fixtures, etc. With regards to your timber accents, keep this simple rule in mind: straight angular lines represent strength while curves and arches represent elegance.
3. Don’t fall into the ‘make everything equal and symmetrical’ trap.
Acknowledge that beauty and uniqueness can be found in asymmetry. You are welcome to try what I like to call the “fuzzy one-eyed approach.”
Step back from your plans, close one eye, and setting until things look fuzzy. Look at your choices with this faraway perspective – no thoughts about alignment with corners, windows, etc. How do things look as a whole? Do certain spots feel cluttered?Do certain spots feel naked? Too high? Too narrow? Too cramped? After you’ve identified what you might like for your big picture, zoom in and work with the close-up details. This could also be called the zoom-out/zoom-in method. I will typically go back and forth a number of times to get things right for our clients.

“We were very fortunate to run into Bert back in 2010. We talked about our dream of owning a home in the country with timber elements to it. I’ve come to realize we’ve hit the sweet spot with the layout of the timbers. Everyone remarks when they come in about how good they feel in their presence. It feels like home to us and it was put together with great love and care. We’re very happy that Arrow Timber framing has done their good work in our home”.
“We were happy to have gotten to know Bert better throughout the process and we were left feeling like we had made a new friend. We look forward to many years of enjoyment from Arrow Timber Framing’s craftsmanship. We would highly recommend Arrow for any project you may be considering.”
