Before I started, I already knew the perfect wall for it. It’s in our kitchen, viewable from the living room thanks to a very open floor plan. Even though we were planking the walls we knew that we were going to have spaces between each piece of wood and didn’t want to take the chance of any blue wall showing through the slats later on. Looking back, I’m SO glad we did this because you COULD see through the gaps quite a bit. Because our ceiling (like most peoples, actually) isn’t level, we made sure the first board was completely straight and level with the wall, leaving a bit of an uneven gap along the top, that later we would simply fill in with white caulk.
To finish off our vertical seams where our walls met up, we used a few pieces of quarter round. For the one edge near the door that divided the planked wall and the living room wall, we used a piece of finishing panel molding that had a lip underneath that snuggled up to the planks really well. We actually just used a non textured roller for the planks and then if any paint got in the cracks, we used a putty knife to get it out. Texture Fades Embossing Folders are for use with the Texture Boutique, BIGkick, Big Shot and Vagabond machines only (used with a pair of Cutting Pads and the machine’s included Platform).
This Texture Fades Embossing Folders Set includes these folder designs: Ink Splats (A2 L); Wood Planks (A2 L). Engineered wood floors to maximize the yield of natural resources used so as to make the best possible use of them, this kind of flooring uses a real top layer for the boards , bolstered by a core layer that is similar to a laminate floor board. One nailed while the other two made sure the planks were tight to laid flooring.
Even though these wall options are made from a variety of species, all engineered wood planks allow for the organic grain patterns to stand out. You’ll want to put some thought into measuring, leveling, and adjusting, especially if you live in an older home and your walls are not exactly level. Once it’s properly distressed, I stained it. The stain took to the wood really well.
It may seem a bit of an installation challenge, but putting up engineered planks on walls is actually easier than it seems The great thing about engineered hardwood flooring is that it is technologically innovative, which means that you can install planks on walls anywhere, even in areas where solid hardwood is not recommended. There’s no need for nails, either, although you’ll have to add some screws on the ends of the planks in order to secure them to drywall safely. Wood creates a pattern in your home, but it’s so subtle that it blends into the background easily.
