Ideas for Wood Feature Walls

Wood can be used in a variety of ways to create a feature wall in your home. It can easily be installed over drywall, meaning that many types of wooden feature walls make great DIY projects. Some ideas for feature walls made of wood could include:

Cedar Plank Feature Wall

One of the easiest feature wall designs that can be used for nearly any space is a solid wood cedar plank layout. Planks can be laid on the wall in any direction or they can be applied in different patterns, such as herringbone. Stains can be applied to the cedar boards to complement your room’s overall aesthetic. Shiplap or tongue in groove can be used to eliminate gaps between the cedar boards.

Modern Art Feature Wall

One way to use wood to create a feature wall is to apply thin strips to create a modern looking pattern. Simple square sticks of wood can be fastened to the wall so that they create a unique interwoven, angular pattern.

Classic Wood Trim

If you prefer to stick to tried and true designs, using wood to create board and batten, wainscoting, or any other type of classically trimmed feature wall can be a very attractive way to go.

Rustic Wood Feature Wall

The right finish work can give wooden boards a distressed, rustic look. When cut at short, uneven lengths or applied in overlapping patterns, this can give a wall a rough, natural, reclaimed appearance.
