5 Ways to Use Wall Planks
Beyond just the traditional peel and stick paneling, there are so many ways you can use wall planks to evoke your own sense of creativity. Here are some of our favorites.
Use Angles. One of the best ways to change up the look of your wall panels is to use angles in your placement. Rather than keeping everything horizontal to the ground, consider creating angled patterns. One of the most popular patterns is the herringbone wall style. Consider mixing it up by using your planks for fun and unique angles in your rooms.
Color Mix and Match. While most people traditionally use a single color of self adhering wall planks to decorate a room, consider using two or three different colors as a pallet to really make the room pop. Mixing blues, greys, and whites can be a great way to increase the feng shui of a room.
Create Open Faced Stairs. While wall planks are traditionally usd for, well, walls, that isn't their only application. Wall planks can be used to create a beautiful open faced stairs look to enhance your living room stairs. Consider using a color that complements the paint or the flooring around the stairs.
Put it up top. Who says that wall panels have to stay on the walls? We have already established that they can create a great look for stairs, so why not the ceiling too? Consider decking out your ceiling with a unique wooden look that will help complete the rustic look of a room.
Cabinet doors. This is a great way to accentuate parts of a room without plastering an entire wall. If you have several cabinets in a kitchen or another room that are in need of renovation, consider using wall planks to create a super unique look that will keep the cabinets looking clean and stylish. This is a great way to help remodel a kitchen.
