Looking at Renovating Your Home? You May Want to Consider the Benefits of Charred Wood Cladding.

Whether you’re looking for a bespoke finish to the exterior of your property or are thinking about adding some modern twist to your living room, charred wood cladding is becoming an increasingly popular method to create interior design vibe.

At Audrini Living, we have experience in sourcing and retailing Shou Sugi Ban charred wood to transform our customer’s homes and commercial spaces. We know that authenticity is key when it comes to paying homage to the traditional Japanese art of Shou Sugi Ban. By matching the process, we guarantee durability. 


​What is Shou Sugi Ban Cladding? ​

Shou Sugi Ban (also known as Yakisugi) is a method of treating wood to make it weather-resistant and waterproof by charring the wood. The practice started in 18th-Century Japan, but the method was globally adopted, and still to this day it is recognised as one of the most effective methods when it comes to treating wood to ensure durability. 

As the wood is blackened, the wood’s distinct and clean lines become striking – when it has been done by professionals. As an effect of the charring, the wood is turned to a deep charcoal black colour, however, today you can find plenty of different variations in colour and texture.

As the tradition of charring wood for weatherproofing is still being carried out 800 years later, you can rest assured when it comes to the durability which the finish offers. The charred layer of wood is resistant to water, mould, insects and even fire!
