Wood Feature Accent Wall Ideas Using Flooring
Today’s post was brought to you in partnership with Flooring America.
I’m pleased to be sharing a few new and exciting ways that you can use flooring in your home, without putting it on the floor. I love adding unique decorating elements to my home, and I want to show you some ways that flooring can do just that! By becoming a feature or accent wall in your home, wood flooring can add so much warmth, color, texture and dimension, and it’s never been easier. With a vast variety of colors & finishes from rustic to refined, chippy and vintage reclaimed style to farmhouse flair… Flooring America is sure to have a floor that fits your individual taste and needs.
In The Mud Room
I can’t think of a harder working area in the home than a mud room. The back wall of a space like this could really stand up to high traffic and taking the beating of book bags, umbrellas, wet coats… and just about anything your family could through at it, with the protection and durability that flooring can offer. No worries, and no paint touch ups necessary! The finish lends a rustic farmhouse flavor to this space and the vertical plank placement is a fresh take on the traditional horizontal planks.
As wainscoting, this flooring finish gives the look & feel of reclaimed wood, without the hunt. Perfect for that lake house or beach cottage. With no worries about it’s safety in your home or what kind of paint was used… and it’s splinter free too. An added bonus? All the coordinating trims are available, including – baseboards, chair rail, quarter round and inner/outer trim, which lend a polished, finished look to your project.
CLIMBING THE WALL
It’s All About The Angle
The drama in this breakfast room is going up! Installed at an angle, and bearing hints of the cabinets pale blue paint color… this flooring will have you gazing at the wall and lingering over your coffee. The texture and interest it adds to the space is undeniable.
LAMINATE HAS COME A LONG WAY
Laminate flooring can be installed in any room – including high-moisture areas, like basements, bathrooms and laundry rooms. The simple Lock&Fold® method is easy to install and can be placed over existing drywall or paneling with no mess or hassle. You may have leftover flooring from a previous project or you can get new Kahrs flooring for this project, either way, you’ll end up with great results. Using products in new and unique ways is something I’m always inspired by and now I’m looking at every wall in my house as an opportunity to do something different.
Do you think flooring on the wall is something you’d try? Where would you put it in your home?
All of the fabulous floors I shared can be found at Flooring America retailers throughout North America.
Whatever your design tastes may be, it’s clear that wood is no longer just for floors, and you can really have some extra fun with it!
