Knotty pine is a type of timber frequently used to construct houses with country accents or a rustic Western theme. The wood is very distinctive because of its large knots, or defects, which make a striking pattern when the wood is used on walls, flooring, or cabinetry. Most varieties of pine also have a strong scent, which some consumers find pleasant, and others dislike. Knotty pine is not generally used in vital structural applications, because pine is a very soft wood and the knots may cause it to split, break, or bow. For decorative purposes, however, knotty pine is quite suitable, although it can be overwhelming when used to excess. Knotty pine is particularly popular in cabins and other rural retreats, and many manufacturers of artificial wood paneling copy the distinctive bulls-eye look of knotty pine.
