There’s nothing truly wrong with bland, boring walls. You can spice them up with paint or wallpaper should you so choose. However, you don’t necessarily have to fall back on these commonplace cosmetic fixes when you’re looking to add visual appeal to your home interior – or at least you needn’t rely on color and pattern alone to do the trick.
You should also consider adding texture to walls with raised panels. Designs are easy to devise and install with the help of the experts at Lone Star, but the stunning results will leave guests to your home oohing and aahing over the marked transformation to your space.
How can you utilize raised paneling? These low-profile slats can be laid out over bare or already paneled walls to create the illusion of portions of the wall being recessed. You might arrange them vertically, horizontally, or both to fashion a framework of smaller rectangles on your walls in any number of configurations.
They may span the height and width of the wall or run from the floor up a portion of the wall, stopping some feet below the ceiling. Whereas a chair rail is often closer to the floor, raised paneling tends to extend much closer to the ceiling, sometimes reaching all the way up. It’s a simple, sophisticated way to highlight a single wall or change the look of an entire room.
