How Much Does a Wood Accent Wall Cost?

A common styling option in many modern homes is accent walls. Renovations are full of various costs, and when you are getting ready, you need to set out a budget, then decide on the features you want within that range. Accent walls are a single wall in a room that draws the eye and breaks the monotony of having every wall the same color.

Accent walls can be made from many different materials, from wood accent walls and stone accent walls, to just painting drywall or using wallpaper. In the end, it’s all about your own preferences, but you can never go wrong with wood accent walls; which give a rustic feeling that is timeless in a room. There are many options available from Blackhawk Floors.

Wood Accent Wall Options

There are a lot of options when it comes to wood accent walls. You can pretty much make an accent wall out of any type of wood that is used for construction, although the rarer and more exotic the wood, the larger the price tag. Real wood boards are often going to be more expensive than manufactured options, or drywall.

Another wood accent wall option you need to think about is whether you are going to use hard wood or softwood. Hardwood is going to be more durable, but also more expensive. Pine and cedar are very common for wood accent walls, giving a rustic wood cabin feel to a room.

Shiplap vs Tongue and Groove

Shiplap is a common choice for a wood accent wall and can be found for a price of around $2.50 – $7.00 per square foot, depending on availability in an area and market fluctuations. With tongue and groove, you should expect to spend more money on average, because more work is done on them at the mills. However, they are also easier and faster to install. With shiplap, you should expect a slightly longer installation time and likely need a professional carpenter to get them installed flat against a building wall.

Total Costs

The total costs for the installation of wood accent walls can vary greatly, so it’s hard to say exactly how much you are going to spend until you have checked out available options in your area. On average recently, $5 per square foot isn’t too far off and depending on the size of the interior wall of your room, you could be seeing anywhere from $500-$2,000 per room. If you have experience with installing accent walls already, you can save some money by doing the labor-intensive work yourself, otherwise you also must consider the cost of a local contractor to install the wall for you.
