Why Spruce wood?
Everyone who is at least a little familiar with wood knows that Pine wood is the king of softwoods. However, Spruces are also quite durable yet they are better known for their role in the Winter holiday season.
Degmeda recommends using burnt Spruce wood for flooring, siding, fencing, decking purposes as well as a wide variety of other exterior (e.g. roof) and interior (e.g. ceiling) applications. Shou Sugi Ban Spruce is a very versatile and adaptable product that you can fit to almost any home and it will still look elegant and nice.
This is yet another benefit that is worth mentioning. Whether you decide to go all-Japanese in your interior or whether you are trying to build a minimalistic Scandinavian environment indoors, charred timber (Spruce or other) elegantly blends in with the rest of the elements.
