What are the health benefits of timber?

We have a passion for timber and love seeing the benefits this beautiful natural resource can make on the health and wellbeing of the lives of those who live with it in their interiors. A Planet Ark* study highlighted that:

  • Wood elicits feelings of warmth, comfort and relaxation which is imperative in creating positive wellbeing and a ‘home away from home’ in aged care and hospital settings.
  • Decreases stress responses and lowers blood pressure, heart rate and cholesterol levels.
  • Improves emotional state and self-expression.
  • Wood products within a room have been shown to improve indoor air quality.
  • 96% of Australians are drawn more to interiors with timber, increasing demand and your return on investment.
  • These benefits maintain physical and emotional health, as well as speed up healing and recovery times, which are particularly important for environments where it is difficult to incorporate nature or natural items.
