Installing a wood accent wall is an excellent way to increase the warmth and interest in your home or office’s décor. There are quite a few different ways that you can use wood as wall accents. Choosing the right one depends on your overall design goals that you are trying to achieve. Here are my top eight wood accent wall picks:
1) Plank Wood Accent Walls
This style of wood accent wall is made of seemingly mis-matched planks arranged in an almost random-looking style. Plank walls can be made of actual planks or boards painted, stained, or finished to look rustic. Use this as a design feature on one wall or a limited area.
2) Herringbone Wall
Herringbone refers to the arrangement of wood in consecutive ‘v’ shapes. This style of wood accent walls gives a room an instant interest. Depending on the finish of the wood, it can be used in either rustic or modern designs.
3) Reclaimed Wood Fireplace
If finished properly, your fireplace can become a beautiful wood accent. Reclaimed wood looks great as a fireplace surround. Since it will be near fire, make sure you work with a professional to ensure that it is safely installed.
4) Shiplap Wall
Shiplap is a specific kind of wood panel that fits together with a groove system. The boards are generally wider than planks. The look of shiplap is clean and modern.
5) Geometric Designs
Wood is so versatile that you can make almost any design you could imagine. All it takes to create a modern wood accent wall is some inspiration, precise measure, accurate cutting, and expert installation. This type of precision takes a professional installer to get it right.
6) Wood Slat Wall
This design adds another dimension to your style. The slats extend away from the wall while the planks are flat against the wall. The combination creates an interesting and inviting three-dimensional look to your wood accent wall. It looks great in a long hallway or entrance way.
7) Wood Striped Wall
Instead of using paint or wallpaper to create stripes on an accent wall, consider using wood. Alternating painted wall and wood gives you a wide array of design options.
8) Small Wood Accent Wall
You don’t have to focus on a large wall when adding a wood accent into a room. A smaller wall covered in beautifully finished wood can add luxury to any space.
9) Painted Wood
Whether you want to add small pops of color or a bold statement, wood is a great way to do just that. You can paint selected planks or design a mosaic; the choice is yours. If you ever want to change up the colors, you can simply sand it down and refinish it.
