03 Jun The benefits of using timber in an apartment
Timber is a great way to renew your space, without having to completely renovate. A small feature wall can make a world of difference in a lounge-room interior. Glosswood can be installed onto existing walls or ceilings, and is a DIY product if you’re handy and capable.
Timber may assist with noise
Timber can assist with absorbing sound inside your apartment. Choose a product that has been designed with acoustic fabric and has undergone NRC testing, like our Acoustic Panels. This is especially beneficial if you frequently use the space for entertaining, play music or have young children. Note: Installing acoustic panels can absorb the sound inside your apartment. Consult a sound engineer if noise is coming from surrounding residences.

Timber paneling can add value to your property
When it comes to selling the property, add a point of different to your apartment compared to neighbouring residences. Timber lining boards can completely change the appearance of the interior, and add warmth with a natural timber grain.
Short installation time
Glosswood’s paulownia timber is strong and lightweight. This makes it is easy to transport into the apartment complex as well as a quick installation time for the carpenter. The 90mm wide timber board is 3.6 metres long, and is as light as 870 grams per length. Building with timber products is also be quicker for installation time in comparison to denser products like stone walling.
