Barn wood paneling adds distinctive texture to any room, making it an increasingly popular interior design choice. Decorative barn wood paneling is designed to provide the look of real rustic wood without the weight of hardwood. And it adapts easily to any look — from traditional to transitional to ultramodern.
Therefore, what makes barn wood paneling great – it’s lightweight, easy to install, and comes in a variety of finishes and wood species, elevating its versatility. Natural warmth of wood adds positive visual appeal and creates an inviting space. Meanwhile, the trend of using barn wood paneling is evident in contemporary office spaces. A space that would typically be cold and stark, instantly warms up due to the balance that wood adds.
But what about when it comes to your home?
First, if looking to add barn wood planks to your home, a popular option is to use it as an accent in a room by lining a wall. This allows for one wall to be completely covered in either rough-sawn board, weathered gray reclaimed panels, or planed-down pieces for a more refined look. Because there are a variety of patinas, there’s bound to be a finish of barn wood to match your space.
You may be unsure if you can commit to a full wall covered in barn wood paneling. Let’s explore some other options to incorporate barn wood in your home design:
• Create a midcentury-inspired look for the living room or den by adding reclaimed wood to the ceiling or wainscoting with 48″ to 72″ height..
• Add the texture of reclaimed wood to your home office or workspace with cubbies for storage.
• Cut down barn wood planks to create a backsplash in your kitchen or bathroom.
• Use barn wood paneling to create a decorative wrap to kitchen counters or to the front of your home bar.
In conclusion, if you’re ready to add a full wall of wood panels, or prefer a subtler accent for your home, we can help. Our reclaimed wood siding stock does change, but typically we have access to weathered gray, white, or red barn siding, along with a mix of softwoods.
