Transform Your Interior With Timber Panels For Feature Walls and Ceilings
Are you looking to add a unique touch to your home’s interior? If so, consider wood panelling. A classic design element, wood panelling is a timeless way to add character and texture to any room. Not only is it visually appealing, but it’s also durable and easy to maintain.
With the recent rise of Biophilic design (bringing the outside in and creating a connection to nature) timber features inside the home have become increasingly popular. Wood panelling is the perfect way to embrace this trend, and instantly bring a sense of coziness and closeness with nature into any space.
Here, we’ll look at the different types of wood panelling available and how to choose the right one for your home. We’ve even thrown in a photo gallery of timber panelling design ideas.
Wood panelling for interior walls
Timber planks for feature walls or statement designs come in a variety of styles, materials and finishes. Natural timber panels are the most popular choice for classic designs, but there are also painted wood panels and composite options available. Wall panels can match your timber flooring or create a striking contrast.
With so many timber choices, it’s important to understand your needs before making a decision. Consider the size of the space you’ll be covering, as well as the amount of natural light it receives. If you’re looking to add warmth and texture, natural wood panels are an ideal choice.
There are a number of ways that you can incorporate timber into your walls at home, whole walls can be covered or individual feature sections. When designing a statement section of a wall, consider the edges and the colour/texture of the base wall.
Below, are some beautiful feature wall design ideas for inspiration.
Wood panelling for ceilings
Timber on the ceilings is a great way to add warmth and texture to any room. Wood plank ceilings are easy to install and can be painted or stained for an even more custom look. If you’re looking for a more traditional look, choose wider planks with a darker stain. For a modern touch, opt for thinner planks in lighter shades.

When choosing the right product for your home consider the style you want to achieve, the size of the space, and your budget. When looking at timber boards, think about the timber species, plank thickness, the finish you desire, and how the planks fit together. If you don’t want nails in your wall, opt for a tongue-and-groove or click-together plank system.
Timber Panel Installation Tips
When it comes to installing wood panelling, professional installation is highly recommended. Not only does professional installation ensure a professional finish and lasting quality, but it also helps to prevent any damage or mishaps that can occur during the process.

Maintenance and Care
Wood panelling requires regular maintenance in order to ensure it stays looking great over time. To keep your wood panelling in tip-top shape use a soft cloth to wipe away dirt or dust buildup periodically – this will help keep your walls looking new! Additionally, avoid hanging heavy items on wooden panelled walls as they can cause damage over time. Finally, if you decide to stain or paint your timber panels make sure you use high-quality products specifically designed for indoor use.
