5 ideas for creating classy wall panels
Not sure how to make the most of wall panels in your home? Give your paneling a quick and easy makeover that will wow
Impress with neutrals
Transform your room or hallway into a welcoming space and refresh your wall panels with a touch of color. For a contemporary feel, try a taupe and offset it with different textures such as natural wooden flooring. Painting the skirting boards in white creates contrast and shows off the color of your makeover. To soften, decorate with small pot plants and artwork that complements the natural greens of your foliage. Try to keep clutter to a minimum to maintain this modern, minimalist look.

Instantly update tired wooden paneling by painting it white. This will create a light and airy space that feels tranquil and calm, ideal for a bedroom. By picking out architectural details such as beams and skirting boards in darker colors, you’ll add interest to the room. You can layer cushions and throw in soft, natural tones to add depth and maximize the effect of your painted walls.

Get creative with blues
If you’re on the hunt for a fun yet practical idea, why not try painting a wall of paneling and shelving in one color to make a display area? A serene grey blue gives the feature a nautical feel, while accessories in natural shapes and materials emphasize the theme. It’s the perfect way to display treasures picked up on trips to the beach and to remind you of sunny days out.

Go bold with your paneling
Get experimental and introduce bold colors to your wooden paneling. Try painting with golden tones for a stylish look that’s easy to achieve and gives a feeling of luxurious comfort. Layering complementary tones, such as light pinks and greys, in the bedding and accessories creates a cozy ambiance. And with this color, there’s no need to have a headboard! Let your colors do the talking.

Dramatic design with contrast
If you’re feeling adventurous, unleash your creative side and energize the space with a fiery crimson - this vibrant red is the perfect way to liven up a room. You can tame this passionate color with complementary wooden furniture and flooring. Woven baskets and relaxed cotton soft furnishings will give this look a homely feel.
