It must be some kind of American thing to use unplanned woods on the interior. It is very impractical with regards to cleaning. One risk getting splinters from trying to. And it is too dark for small rooms.
Sorry, but to clarify, did you mean to say unplaned – wood that isn’t planed – as in wood that isn’t cut equal, or rough cut – wood? Or did you mean to say natural wood that isn’t painted?
I am not clear by your post what you mean so I will answer my understanding and experience on this on both counts. The log cabin or rough cut look is an American western and Canadian tradition, but also the world over if you look at the Nordic countries and in other places where cold weather and trees are present, limited access to ‘fine’ materials etc. Southern Germany, the Tyrolean mountains, Russia (their old churches in the snow) are places that this comes to mind. Old timber didn’t need to be painted as it didn’t mold, was hygienic, insulates well, and has always been extremely solid in comparison to stick building, lasting for centuries. Several back and forths with a hand sander is a good way to eliminate splinters in rough cut timber or knotty pine before or after install.
With regard to painting wood, unless you are going for the shabby chick look, purists maintain wood with a clear finish to bring out the beauty of the knots and grain of the wood. This is another way to make dusting easier and avoiding splinters. In fact, in wood working or wood dominant structures, it is considered a decorating faux pas to paint natural wood such as tongue in groove (or logs) and can actually lower the value of the home. Painting wood is best limited to accent pieces in such cases – for example, trim work or the aforementioned shabby chick. I know ‘the’ old rule of home decorating is that to make a room look bigger, you paint it white. This works well for the average size house, particularly for older tract homes built in the 40’s – 60’s that have smaller square footage and low ceilings. However, in the case of very small or tiny homes, the effect of that is that you take away the potential cozy setting that goes together with ‘tiny’ and make it feel like one is walking into a blizzard if wood used on interior walls is painted white; it’s cold and the eye has no where to rest. Ditto for poor interior layout design, but I digress.
There are many people who like a white environment – to them it is crisp, and clean, as well as spacious. There is nothing wrong with that and there are plenty of materials out there that can be put on walls that will accommodate white (or some other colour) beautifully without destroying the beauty of natural wood. Materials such as drywall or masonite are excellent choices because they give a smooth finish and can easily be evenly textured, unlike wood which still shows the indentation of the knots and grain if painted. There are other composite materials out there which are designed to be painted and flexible also so they won’t crack with travel or movement of a THOW.
Some like a hybrid look but will respect wood’s beauty in the build. I just built a tiny house and for the bedroom interior, I did clear finish knotty pine on the ceiling and the same for wainscotting halfway up the walls. The bedroom is 8×10 and window placement direction has light flooding in for most of the day. From the top of the wainscotting to the edge of the ceiling will be masonite painted a very pale pink colour. The room is very bright and coupled with some nice textiles is expected to be beautiful and inviting.
I think many Americans do prize raw wood for its cozy, homemade look. Some people want their tiny house to look like a rustic cabin in the forest, or like something they built with their own hands back in pioneer days. It goes along with the idea of downscaling and living simply. And often we see a hodgepodge of different woods because builders are using salvaged materials, and they are content to retain the natural finishes. But many others prefer painted walls and a sleek, modern appearance.
I meant unplaned. Autocorrection changed it – and was about to change it again 😉
Gee a lot of ramblings you got out of that one comment.
I sincerely meant it was very impractical to clean and you risk getting splinters in your fingers – Talking from experience. And I meant the house is very dark. That has nothing to do with painting anything all white. It has something to do with very small windows.
And you are wrong about the Nordic countries and Germany etc. We have absolutely very fine materials to build with. We plan our woods. Unplaned wood is considered lazy mans work. You will not find houses here, where you find unplaned wooden walls.
And you are talking to someone with a craft mans and engineering education in woodwork. Wood does not go moldy if it is not exposed to moisture. So this has nothing to do with painting. If you make an indoor climate with low moisture, you will not get any mold. If the air moisture content is too high, even painted wood will mold.
That explains a lot about why it is so common in American tiny houses.
