Create A Feature Wall With Timber Cladding
Updated: Feb 12, 2020
A feature wall can greatly enhance your living space and it is very easy to achieve this by playing with colours, textures and design. Even a simple painted feature wall in a different colour can stand out.
However, if you want a feature wall that comprises of all colours, texture and design, timber wood is a great cost effective material to consider.
CHOOSING A COLOUR
There are many colours when it comes to timber wood. Before settling on one, ask yourself if a light or dark coloured feature wall will better enhance your space. Natural wood surface absorbs a lot of light so unless your room gets plenty of natural light you may wish to consider light coloured wood. On the other hand, if you prefer to wind down in a dark and cosy bedroom, pair dark wood with even darker shades like granite or concrete, grey or black painted wall and dark furnishings.
A textured feature wall gains more points for being able to stand out. Given the nature of wood, it is easy to create textures on timber planks. Textures can be man-made or simply by showing off the grains of the wood.
