5 Rooms Perfectly Suited for a Wood Accent Wall


Your home is overflowing with opportunities to incorporate a wood accent wall. Here are some simple ideas of where to put a wood plank accent wall in your home.

  • Bedroom: We commonly see wood plank accents installed behind the bed. It may be a whole accent wall, or a portion of it that acts as a headboard. This feature will help your room feel cozy and contemporary.
  • Den: Whether your den is a man cave or an office, wood accent walls will provide a classy touch. A darker wood tone is often chosen for such spaces, but for a room frequented by the whole family, choosing something lighter can shape it into an open and reflective area. 
  • Living Room: Living room wood accent pieces are typically found outlining the fireplace. This may be the space where you would want to consider diagonal or chevron positioning. If you have a non-working fireplace, think about filling the inside with a paneling similar to the paint color to create a neat patterned look.
  • Kitchen: Another great place for wood accents! Aside from the walls, there are plenty of unique spots in your kitchen to put a wood paneling addition. The ceiling is a creative choice that will make your kitchen feel warm and homey. Your island is another clever spot where you can add a little something extra.
  • Laundry Room: It may sound strange, but the laundry room is a fantastic place to incorporate some wood accents. If you have open shelving units, try installing wood paneling in the back of them.
