However, there are ways to make decorating more affordable without losing the look and quality of more expensive items. Keep reading and we will walk you through one of the biggest trends in interior designs, decorative wood panels.

Decorative Wood Panels

Faux wood paneling on average costs $250 to $350 and can be a do-it-yourself project, making it very affordable. Decorative wood paneling costs anywhere from $1,000 and more.

You can use faux wood panels to create separation and color blocks within a space. The panels can add decoration to your ceiling or walls giving your space an extra chic touch.

We are going to go through why faux wood is a better option:

  1. Low cost: Faux wood is a lot less expensive than buying real wood. It’s also easier to work with and less costly to set up.
  2. Durable: Faux wood is more durable and can handle any spills or accidents in your house with little stress.
  3. Easy Maintenance: Real wood needs to be sanded and stained every few years to keep the look and feel and to prevent it from turning gray. Faux wood you can wash with soap and water and it won’t fade or turn gray.
  4. Long-lasting: Real wood can last 10 to 30 years and needs maintenance throughout. Faux wood can last up to 50 years with little effort.

Variety of Choices

With everyone working and going to school at home, enhancing your space can help make being at home all the time bearable. You can use the faux wood paneling as a family or roommate bonding activity or you can do-it-yourself.

The first choice you need to make is what room you want to update. You can enhance your office space with faux wood paneling on your ceiling or your bedroom on the walls.

Next, you need to pick the color. You can get a lighter color to brighten the space or a deeper color to create a comfortable look.

Light gray pine, white, cherry, or mahogany, there are endless color options. You should think through the following questions before choosing a color:

  • What do I love about this space?
  • What doesn’t work in this space?
  • Will the faux wood paneling enhance the space?
  • Am I going for the same or different aesthetic?

Once you make these decisions, you’re ready to start decorating.
