Create Your Own Wall

A sizable way to add character and complexion to a space, residential or commercial, is adding the texture and versatility of wall planking. Not only is it an admired feature wall that doesn’t go out of style, but also purposeful especially if the placement is strategized for highly trafficked areas. 

Wall planking presents a focal point of interest, oomph and overall attractiveness to an area. The possibilities are vast, you have a multitude of material selections, colors and finishes to choose from. Your environment is what narrows down the selection process. For example, aged barwood would look stunning in a farmhouse themed home but may look out of place in a modern condo. Finding the style that marries well with the surrounding surfaces is key.

Areas that are popular to showcase wall planking include: living or family rooms, fireplaces, hallways, foyers, office spaces, bathrooms, bedroom walls (especially behind beds and cribs), dining spaces, sunrooms and patios, porches, kitchen islands, basements, stairwells, steps, finished attics and mud rooms.

For commercial projects: foyers, walls alongside booths/tables, hallways to bathrooms, inside bathrooms, behind bars or planked on bartop fronts, feature walls that showcase goods or placed behind welcoming desks, merchandise walls and exterior walls are just a few areas to consider to add that extra flair of charm to.

When we discuss wall planking with a client, we want to see the space the material will be featured in, the present intent and future ambitions, will ask a variety of questions to get a sense of what you are drawn to or want to learn more of. Some customers may know exactly what they want and have ideas pinned in a pinterest page, which is absolutely great, we are also here as your design ambassadors and can direct you to what selections make sense for your budget and space goals.
