Wood paneling - a warm finish for walls and floors.
At the thought of wainscoting many of us go through an unpleasant shudder. A return to the coarse communist era is not necessarily the fulfillment of our decorating dreams. Fortunately, modern paneling has plenty of charm and elegance. Cladding a wall with wood is an interesting solution in many interior styles today. This is because everything depends on the class of wood used and the way it is arranged. We will get a different effect by covering the entire wall with perfectly smooth boards, another by decorating only a fragment of it with a slender linear panel resembling tiers. If you're still hesitant about covering a wall with wood, here are some proven ideas.

Wood wall cladding - aesthetic advantages
Wood is an extremely graceful material and works well in virtually all square meters. Light, pastel shades of planks guarantee a brightening effect. Large spaces gain even more breath. Covering a wall with wood in public places - cafes, restaurants, conference rooms - adds a chic but cozy touch. You can also use wood on the wall for an interesting wall construction in the living room.
The wall cladding with darker boards with exposed grain pattern combines beautifully with abundant vegetation. Wood on the wall also goes well with other decorative materials, such as brick or glass. Combining textures and colors is a must have for original interiors. It is also an interesting idea to combine different types of wood within a single development. The artful technique of marquetry is precisely to create fine patterns, using the natural colors and textures of wood.
Wood wall cladding - technical advantages
Wood on the wall is good for quieting rooms. Wood wall cladding in a cozy honey color will work well in rooms where you plan relaxing movie nights. Wood also has great insulating properties. It retains heat in winter and prevents overheating in summer.

What kind of wood to choose for wall development?
Native woods, especially ash, are an interesting option. In addition to being hard, it is also distinguished by its resilience, which makes it very easy to process and install the boards. Thanks to its properties, it performs much better in interiors than some exotic woods. Wall paneling with ash wood will be a solid investment, as well as an interesting variety of minimalist arrangements. Such unusual wainscoting together with light ash flooring optically enlarge the rooms. What's more, ash wood can forever gain the dark color of exotic wood thanks to special thermal treatment.
What to keep in mind before building a wall with wood?
- Decide ona specific style - the wood on the wall should be a properly exposed decoration, not a design slip-up.
- Choose specific places for wooden sections - covering all the walls with wood strongly overwhelms the room.
- Choose the right type of wood - of course, pay attention to its color in daylight, but also check the technical parameters. Not every type of wood will work in all structures.
