The art of paneling: simple yet stylish

Paneling, a design element that has stood the test of time, holds the power to instantly elevate the aesthetics and ambiance of any space. From classic wood paneling that evokes a sense of warmth to contemporary interpretations that add texture and style, paneling has the remarkable ability to transform ordinary walls into focal points of charm and sophistication. Even better, the materials we use are sustainable, durable and waterproof.

Types of paneling – what would work for you?


● Traditional Wood Paneling:

Classic and timeless, wood paneling exudes a sense of warmth and sophistication. It can range from intricate carved designs to simple, clean lines. Oak, walnut, and pine are popular choices for traditional wood paneling.

● Beadboard Paneling:

Characterized by its vertical planks with distinctive grooves (beads), beadboard adds a touch of cottage charm. It’s often used in kitchens, bathrooms, and informal spaces.

● Raised Paneling:

Offering depth and dimension, raised paneling features a central raised portion surrounded by a frame. This style is commonly found in formal living areas, libraries, and grand hallways.

● Shiplap Paneling:

Made famous by farmhouse aesthetics, shiplap consists of horizontal overlapping wooden boards. Its casual yet stylish appeal has made it a favorite in contemporary interior design.

Creative applications of paneling – how to elevate your space


● Accent Walls:

Transform a plain room into a captivating space by using paneling on a single wall. Consider a bold color or unique texture for a striking effect.

● Ceilings:

Experiment with paneling on your ceilings to add visual interest and an unexpected focal point.
● Wainscoting:

Enhance the lower portion of your walls with wainscoting paneling, creating an elegant separation between different elements in a room.

● Built-in Furniture:

Incorporate paneling into built-in bookshelves, cabinets, or even headboards to create a cohesive and stylish look.

● Modern Interpretations:

Embrace contemporary paneling materials such as metal, glass, or composite materials for a fresh take on this classic concept.
