If you’re looking for new paneling, you may be wondering if floor panels could be used on your walls. Luckily, the answer to this question is a resounding yes! But first, here’s what you need to know about decorating your walls with floor panels.
1. Your Home’s Aesthetic
While most people prefer wood panels, there are many different types to choose from. The panels don’t need to precisely match the tone of your floor, but it’s generally best if the contrast isn’t too sharp. We offer a wide range of wooden floor panels that would look lovely on your walls. They’re available in oak, maple, and pine, among other popular options.
2. That Rustic Look
Using wood panels to decorate your walls can give your home a rustic look. They’re also great for homeowners who appreciate a farmhouse style. Rather than painting the paneling in block colors, paneling tends to fit especially well with the rustic or farmhouse look if you use a stain.
3. Save on Heating Costs
Installing floor panels on your walls will help insulate them, and possibly save you money on heating expenses, not to mention a lower utility bill is better for the environment too. While the savings may seem small, they can really add up to a significant amount over time.
4. Make Your Rooms Look Bigger!
Installing floor paneling horizontally on your walls can make rooms seem larger, and the best part is that it’s affordable. This is especially true if you choose composite paneling or pine, which are less expensive options.
5. Wood Paneling for a Dining Room
While this unique style can look great in any room of the house, it’s particularly attractive in dining rooms. It can even buffer your walls from furniture damage.
