It’s no secret that wood paneling is coming back into style, and is now being used in ways considered unthinkable previously. If you’ve been hiding the wood paneling behind wallpapers, it’s time to give those panels a makeover. Here are some easy ways to transform wood paneling to help you achieve the desired results.
A Modern Touch
Using modern style furniture, along with wood paneling can help hide the vintage look of the wood, making it look modern and chic. Adding some bamboo sticks, or bamboo inspired décor pieces, along with a modern shag rug can help in giving it the modern touch you desire, and make you feel at home.
Colour It Up
Colouring the wood paneling a soft shade can transform it to match your current scheme while making it look fresh too. A good idea is to choose a color that goes well with your furniture but is different from the color it previously was. You can also choose a darker tone if you don’t want to make the paneling obvious.
If you’re an art lover, this wood panel transformation is for you. Express your love for art by adding your favorite paintings and decoration pieces on the wood-paneled wall. This helps make these pieces pop out, and give your wood paneling a new look. Adding shelves or racks to the paneling can help hide away any signs of wear and tear, and give it a modern touch at the same time.
Tone Down The Vintage
If you want to show off the panels, and don’t want to paint them over, but wish you could tone down the color, transform the paneling by lightening the color. You can do this by using watered down paint, and painting over the panels.
