Decorative wall paneling

Decorative wall paneling are available in many different materials. They are often used to change the look of the wall, but may also be installed to help protect the wall from damage. Wainscoting is one of the most commonly used wall panels. It is made from wood or synthetic materials patterned with carvings and designs. Wainscot is usually installed on the lower half of a wall, but heights and styles may vary. Pre-fabricated panels may be used, or those familiar with woodworking can create their own versions. Other common materials used for decorative paneling include laminate, stainless steel and plastics.

Decorative wall paneling aren’t just for simple rows along the bottom of your wall. A single wall covered in a pattern or grid of differently sized and shaped panels is a dramatic addition to a formal dining room or sophisticated sitting room. Accent walls covered in panels are particularly effective in rooms with vaulted or cathedral ceilings. To avoid a distracting or cluttered appearance, match both the individual molding strips and the interior of the panels to the original wall color; the final effect is more textural than visual. Another option is to choose molding strips in a high-sheen metallic like silver or gold to resemble classic Victorian portrait frames.
