Why choose wooden wall paneling for your home?

Why choose wooden wall paneling for your home?

Having seen a huge surge in its popularity over recent years, it may come as a surprise to learn that wooden wall paneling dates back centuries! Often elaborate and intricately carved, it was used in stately homes as a means of decoration and to provide thermal insulation, something that today’s modern equivalents also do too!

At The Wood Veneer Hub we have supplied thousands of very happy customers with our products, from the always popular Slatpanel® whose properties include acoustic sound insulation, to easy to apply collections such as TimberStik, which is supplied with an adhesive backing strip.

Of the many interior designers, architects and home-owners that have already used wooden wall paneling, once you’ve created a feature wall, clad an entire room or even fitted some on the ceiling, it’s more a question of where can you install some more.

Our repeat customers could also give you a number of reasons why you would want to install wooden wall paneling like they have throughout their homes and houses.

The first main reason that most people cite is that wooden wall paneling offers a totally different look to a feature wall that’s simply painted. For sure, a feature wallpaper can add decoration, but if it’s a wall that’s prone to traffic then there’s no disguising any nicks or scuffs on the surface.

With wooden wall paneling you can also choose a finish which co-ordinates with the rest of the interior woods in the room such as internal doors, skirting and even flooring, allowing the new wall paneling to seamlessly blend into the overall scheme of the room.

Wooden wall paneling also allows you to quickly update the overall appearance of the space too… A refresh of accessories such as cushions or throws in a new accent color and the room is quickly transformed.

Apart from its obvious great looks, the second main reason that so many people choose to use wooden wall paneling is the simplicity of installing it. There is no need to employ the services of a professional fitter, as even a competent DIY-er can successfully install it, and because it’s so simple, our short step-by-step videos will guide you through the easy process.

The third reason that many people cite as the reason they choose to use wall paneling is when they have an uneven wall surface finish as it can conceal a multitude of irregularities. If the wall may be prone to hairline cracks or staining, and nothing seems to work to rectify or disguise them, then as long as the wall is sound and free from damp, wooden wall paneling can be installed.

Soundproofing may be the last reason you would think of when installing wooden wall paneling, but if you live on a busy road, share a party wall with an adjacent neighbor, or have apartments or flats above yours, you’ll be all too aware of noise pollution. Wood, and especially Slatpanel® wall paneling have significant acoustic and thermal insulating properties. So, if either of these are an issue in your home, wooden wall paneling might just be the ideal solution.
