The Wood Paneling Trend Is Back With a Twist

May 15, 2017 9:09 pm

While out showing homes lately, I have been seeing a increase in this neat concept in all price ranges. In fact, my husband bought prefinished distressed barn wood at Home Depot and added it to our breakfast nook ceiling that's an A-Frame and it transformed the space.  We now get tons of compliments on it and others ask to copy the idea!

The Wood Paneling Trend Is Back With a Twist

Wood paneling is back, but we’re not talking about he 1960s version that you may still be peeling down from some of your listings.

Instead, today’s wood paneling trend is being used as an accent wall, instead of a complete cover of an entire room. For example, wood panels in walnut may be used as an accent wall behind the bed in the master bedroom. Or, maybe one wall will be covered in white distressed shiplap, a trend popularized by HGTV “Fixer Upper” hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines.

Wood in all finishes, whether clear stain or in its natural form, are being used to create sophisticated, sleek accent walls. You may even find wood panels in the closets, such as cedar-covered closet walls  (with added bonuses of having a distinctive smell and being a natural repellant to insects, like moths, too).® reports on the trend: “Knotty pieces of wood bring a very organic look, while painted varieties are classic and always popular with homeowners and potential buyers.”

Designers are certainly proving you dress up and modernize any space with wood panels. See a few examples from Houzz.
