    Reimagine How You Use Wood Panel Walls with Walston Architectural Products

    There’s so much more to wood panel walls than meets the eye! There are tons of ways to explore wall paneling and the ways it can enhance your home interior. Obviously, when you think of wall paneling, you think of walls. But our custom wall paneling can be used in so many more ways to change up the design of a space. At Walston Architectural Products, we offer handcrafted, made-to-order panels perfect for any project you dream up - even ones that seem a little off the wall.

    Our clients love showing off how they use our wall paneling in their home, and their photos have given us tons of ideas for how you can change up your space. These wall paneling ideas will give you the inspiration you need to add that special something to your home!

    Show Off With an Accent Wall

    This is probably the most popular way to use wall paneling in your home. An accent wall is the perfect way to make a statement and add a refined look to any room. Use it to add dimension and texture to your walls, and with the ability to easily paint the paneling, the options are endless.

    For an iconic accent wall, try our fluted wall panels. The concave ridges create a ripple effect that can be as subtle or as over-the-top as you want it to be.

    All of our wall paneling comes in three finish options:

    • Primed White MDF
    • Unfinished White Oak
    • Unfinished Birch

    With our primed white option, it's ready to be painted whatever color you desire! Our unfinished wood options are also ready for stains or clear coats, so you can customize your panels to match your style and space.

    Turn Heads with Wall Paneling Ceilings

    You may not think much of the ceiling in your home, but what if you had a reason to? It’s a creative and unique way to personalize your space and turn heads - upward! Imagine our reeded wall panels on your ceiling. It adds the perfect amount of sophistication in an unexpected way.

    Might they help dampen noise from your TV, kids, or other household noisemakers? We’d love to know more about your experience if you try this wall paneling idea.

    If you’re worried about the maintenance of our wood wall panels when they’re on your ceiling, don’t fret. Our panels are assembled from durable, natural materials, hand crafted in our Kansas City workshop by our trusted craftsmen. Once finished, they’re low maintenance and made to last for years to come.

    Create a One Of a Kind Kitchen Island

    Some of our favorite wall panel ideas aren’t even on walls. You can use our paneling on so much more than just walls, and the kitchen is a great place to showcase them. Using wall panels on your kitchen island creates a beautiful centerpiece in one of the most important rooms in your home. Or, cut the panels down to size and reface your cabinets with something bold and beautiful.

    Slat wall panels are a subtle and timeless option and would make a great addition to any kitchen, especially if you love a coastal or farmhouse design style. The ability to customize our wall paneling makes it easy to bring your vision to life, and this particular paneling we make is sleek and modern in a way that compliments a kitchen well.

    Highlight a Special Place in Your Home

    Using wall panels to accentuate a meaningful area of your home is a great way to add a little special something to your space without covering an entire wall. The great thing about our wall paneling is you can custom order exactly how much you need, so you won’t find yourself with extra paneling you don’t need.

    Consider using the panels to highlight your fireplace. This will create a cozy, yet elegant look to your living space. Another great idea is creating a faux headboard or accent wall behind your bed. You can create a dramatic effect using wall paneling all the way to the ceiling.
