Whether it’s a prefinished look you love or a custom stained style, you can make a dramatic impact on your home in a simple and affordable way. Celebrity Realtor Josh Altman says, “…if done properly, wooden ceilings can alter a space completely. In addition, some modern and architectural homes are featuring controlled accent walls identical to the flooring, usually in non-traditional wood stains/washes. This adds a real ‘custom’ feel to a space.”

Check out some tips for installing wood on your own walls & ceilings here!

Here’s what some of our loyal customers had to say about their own wood accent walls:

Unfinished White Pine

I needed about 100-120 square feet for an accent wall for my nursery. I found an amazing technique for giving the wood a grey wash look. You can’t tell that this is brand new pine. I was expecting many knots and imperfections (which I would have been happy with) but the planks were shipped in excellent condition.” – ‘Adlex Designs’, NJ

 “We decided to remove a load bearing wall separating our formal living room & family room to make one big open space – which I think we accomplished! When it came to deciding what to do with the existing beam, we immediately thought how cool would wood be! I went to Lumber Liquidators the next day, purchased the engineered Acacia Handscraped wood. We are so pleased with how it turned out and get tons of compliments when people walk into the house now!” – Rebecca, NY
