When you think of a wood paneled room, you may think of an old study or library in an early to mid-1900s home. Some may think it’s a dated feature in older homes, but nothing could be further from the truth. The trickiest design element is creating eye-catching color balance, letting the walls, ceiling, floor, and furnishings work together. Think about how your favorite furnishings can pop. Everyone has a style of their own that they want their home to represent. We found examples of how four styles can be represented in a Wood Paneled Room.
A glossy gray paint paired with a sleek marble mantel. It creates an ultra-modern feel. The room balance was created using dark gray walls and ebony finished floors with a white ceiling and cream throw rug.
Minimalism represents living with very few items as possible. Decorating with just chairs, side tables, table lamps, and a throw rug gives that minimal feel. The room balance was created using dark chestnut carved panel walls and dark wood finished floors with a white ceiling, cream throw rug, and neutral gray furniture.
Traditional style rooms represent comfortable furniture, classic designs, and casual décor. The big huge windows create a bright airy atmosphere in such a neutral-colored room. The room balance is created with a white ceiling and light furnishings paired with the neutral rug and warm medium-toned wood paneling and flooring. Typically, in an antique paneled room, sconces were used as a source of lighting.
Eclectic is a mixture of textures, time periods, styles, trends, and colors. This room has a mix of modern sconces, a Victorian crystal chandelier, mid-century chairs, carved wooden paneled walls and mantel, and modern art. The room balance was created with a white ceiling, white rug, and bright metal furnishings paired with the dark medium tone paneled walls and floors.
