July 6, 2023

Wood and other natural tones are in style in both commercial and residential spaces, and it’s not a trend that is going away anytime soon. In fact, woods and other natural materials are timeless within interior design, so your space will never look dated if the design is done well. Wood paneling is just one of the many ways you can incorporate a wood element into your design, and it brings with it a lot of versatility. Wood paneling comes in a variety of styles and colors, and it can bring elegance and warmth to several different kinds of rooms. Here are just a few ways you can design with wood paneling to elevate your space.

1. Long Lines

Embrace the modern look of long lines with slatted panels on your walls. The vertical or horizontal lines that come in a range of sizes and wood tones allow you to bring interest and texture into your space. If you go with vertical slats, the look can elongate your space and make it seem bigger than it is. Horizontal lines give the illusion of width, making a room appear wider. Slatted panels can be used as a focal point or as the main design element in a room. It instantly creates character and takes a space from ordinary to extraordinary.

2.  Texture

Textured panels such as IKONNI’s embossed veneers can bring elegance and interest to an otherwise plain space.

The versatility of embossed veneers allows them to fit any style, from modern to traditional and everything in between.    

3. Acoustic Paneling

If you have a room that tends to get noisy, such as an auditorium or a media room, acoustic panels absorb that noise so it doesn’t overwhelm the rest of your space. Acoustic panels are functional, but they also offer a design element that you can use in a variety of ways. IKONNI’s acoustic paneling comes in many different styles and colors, and the panels can also go on the ceiling, which gives a truly unique look.
