DIY Ideas To Elevate The Wood Paneling in Your Home


By Hadley Mendelsohn and Sienna Fantozzi, House Beautiful

Wood paneling can make a room feel a little chaotic (not to mention dark, musty, and reminiscent of the '70s), but it can also be seriously stylish when done right. Whether you want to add paneling to your house-or need a few ways to update your existing walls-get inspired by these wood paneling ideas and see how the pros do it. We promise these examples will help your shiplap stand out in a good way.


Whitewash Your Panels


This technique allows you to keep the woodgrain texture of walls, but not the deep color. Start by watering down your paint, then you'll want to brush on, immediately wipe, and repeat until you get your desired color.


Back In Black


Is this the sexiest bathroom ever? We think so. Sometimes painting smaller rooms in a darker color can actually make it feel larger and more intimate the same time). It's also a good way to disguise paneling you don't love.


Dress Things Up With Marble


Contrasting your wall panels with a luxe texture like marble will always make things look and feel more elevated. Also note the thinner wood wall panels, here. Opt for more narrow slats for an understated twist.


Use Them As A Design Template


A deep slate gray paint is strategically placed on paneling, which acts as a nice border around the brighter painted portions of the wall. It takes the emphasis off the ridges while also creating a geometric pattern.


Play It Up With Furniture


If you have wood wall panels in the bedroom, play on the theme by bringing in a statement-making wooden headboard. Paint them white so our eyes can focus on the bespoke bed frame.


Go Bold With Color


Just because you have wood wall panels doesn't mean you can't paint the entire room a fun color or experiment with textured paints. Envelop the whole space in a bright lacquer from floor to ceiling for a high impact, wall paneling or no wall paneling.


Color-block and Add Tiles


Give your walls extra style in the kitchen by color-blocking wood paneling and then added a tile backsplash over it. This will create geometric dimension and can easily dress up lackluster areas, like the oven zone.


On The Edge


If you don't want wood paneling to make your house look shabby chic, don't decorate like it's a cottage. Choose boho, edgy accents, like dark, leather furniture, patterned pillows, and geometric, modern lighting.


Disguise Them With a Bookshelf


Built-in bookcases help obscure paneling, while cute accessories turn them into a decorative backdrop. But if you really hate those lines, just stack books in front of them until not an inch shows through.


Spread Them Out


You don't have to pack your panels together-instead, try only installing a few, and space them out. It'll help create a more modern vibe.


Think Beyond Farmhouse


Here's proof that shiplap can do way more than farmhouse decor. The horizontal wood-paneled white walls help balance out the bold pinks, oranges, and blues in this room.


Keep It On the Ceiling


Removing wood paneling is no easy task, so it's best to not overdo it with this material. Use it on the ceiling instead of covering all your walls.


Remember: Less Is More


Keep your walls simple and use wood paneling just behind your fireplace. It'll help it stand out, and make it the focal point of your room.


White Out


Painting panels white quickly brightens up a space and gives the boards a cute, cottage vibe. (And we know Joanna Gaines would totally approve.)
