Yesterday I toured some model homes in my area, I love to pop in to model homes to see how they’re styled and decorated. The one thing that struck me in one of the homes (below) was the two story grid wall treatment that greeted you upon entry (it was also present in the formal dining room).
So often we look to paint or wallpaper to make a statement, but there is also this option of a wall treatment beyond the basic plank wall to add dimensional pattern.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to this kind of wall treatment, create symmetrical geometric patterns in any dimensions you envision with various sizes of wood trim.
Below are a few examples of stripes created with planks or trim, the first wrapped in a metallic fabric, the others demonstrating how thin strips of wood trim create a raised stripe, one painted and vertical, the other stained and horizontal.
This version is similar to a classic board and batten treatment with the battens continuing all the way up the ceiling.
Think beyond stripes and squares with angles, hexagons, and less predictable patterns!
3D wall panels are also available in more intricate designs, find all sorts of companies and products with a simple search online.
