Smart decorators have struck gold. Dual-wooded bedroom furniture has increased bedroom decorating options four fold. The latest trend in high class bedroom furnishings is to take elegantly tailored raised panels, built in two of the most beautiful types of wood, to take your private spaces from season to season richly.
Beautiful combinations of summer light woods (maple or hickory) & rich fall cherry or walnut have created an extraordinary bedroom rage that moves from season to season with nouveaux classic style. While no one wants to invest and re-invest in bedroom furniture, we all want to be able to dress up or down our intimate spaces according to the seasons and our moods, and do so seasonally.

Examples of blending wood types
The best way to blend different types of wood is to keep the contrast somewhat close to each other or not have them clash with each other. You could have a chair’s frame made out of hard maple and stain it with a onyx stain and then make the seat out of hickory with a mission maple stain and burnish the seat. The burnishing helps make the hickory start to blend into the hard maple.
You can also find ways to make different whole pieces of wood work together in your room. Let’s say you have cabinets made out of cherry wood and you wanted a dining table to match them. Since cherry is a soft hardwood, it probably isn’t the best choice for a table though. You could however use hard maple since it is harder, but has a smooth grain close to cherry. All you need then is to stain the wood to either match or to work well with the color of your cabinets.
