    Accent wall – Covering up an entire wall with natural wood paneling is a great way to add warmth and texture to a space that’s mostly white.

  • Artwork – Instead of covering an entire wall with wood paneling, create a large panel out of reclaimed wood that’s slightly smaller in dimension than the wall you plan on hanging it on in order to take the appearance of a beautiful piece of art.
  • Exposed wood beams – Exposing the structural wood beams in your home is a great way to provide your home design with some architectural interest. Keep them raw in order to let the natural color draw attention to itself.
  • Stairway wall – Use natural wood to cover a wall that leads from downstairs up in order to unify your floors with a common design element.
