Cladding – Olive ash – Shooting Lodge Scotland

Internal wood cladding has enjoyed somewhat of a revival in recent years and has been used on home interiors for centuries. Fitted either vertically or horizontally styles of cladding include square edged or tongue and groove. Sutton Timber were approached by a client to supply olive ash cladding to furnish this stunning shooting lodge in Scotland.

Installed by a professional cladding always looks good and fits perfectly, but DIY is a viable option. Square edged boards are nailed directly onto battens. For tongue and groove cladding secret nailing is generally employed. Nailed through the ‘tongue’ part of each board the nails are neatly concealed.

Cladding brings natural warmth, texture and character to the room – a modern look but with a rustic feel. In addition the contrast of the olive ash cladding with the stone floor works extremely well. With so many different options for spacing, placement and installation style, it is easy to create your own unique look.

Ben Sutton commented ‘Using natural wood cladding for interiors not only creates dimension for a room but brings out the beauty of the grain in every board. It is fabulous to see cladding used here in such a contemporary way’.
