What is Wood Paneling?

What is Wood Paneling?Wood paneling is a type of architectural millwork used to cover walls. Paneling was created centuries ago as insulation to make rooms in stone buildings more comfortable. Over time, paneling began to serve a decorative function. In the United States, the 1960s and ’70s were arguably the heyday of wood paneling when it was an all-too common sight in suburban homes, especially in living rooms, dens, and basement rec rooms. But it was so overused that it soon came to be seen as tacky, even cheap, the product of unimaginative interior design. In today’s design world, the opposite is true.

Decorating with Flair

Modern wood paneling adds a distinct sense of style to living spaces. Forget the artificial-looking panels of yesteryear that all seemed to display the same woodgrain patterns. Today’s panels offer far more variety in terms of wood type and design. You can find horizontal and vertical panels, panels made with the weathered or scratched wood of your choice, and panels painted in vibrant colors for a splash of color and dimension.
