Have you considered faux wood panel wallpaper for your walls? Perhaps you hanker after the real thing, but want to avoid the cost and mess of installing wood panelling into your home. In such cases a wood effect wallpaper is ideal.
Let’s take a look at some of the best wood panel wallpaper ideas for your home decor.
I love the look of a wood panel on the walls, particularly when it’s in white. And there are some incredible wallpapers around that really capture the essence of this look.
Whilst we are used to it adorning the walls of stately homes, the wood effect panel has become increasingly popular in all homes, big and small.
It’s a novel and interesting way to add texture and interest to a wall without pattern and print; perfect for those that prefer a minimal decor aesthetic.
So, with that in mind, I’ve created a little snapshot of some of my favourite white wallpaper examples, showcasing the wood panel effect wallpaper at its best.
11 BEST Wood Panel Wallpaper Ideas
This first design I’m showing is called Contemporary Wood Panel and here it is in Dove White
It’s my favourite and most traditional looking example, mimicking the wood panel look that so many people love right now.
1. Contemporary Wood Panel in Dove White
As you can see, the softer white look pairs beautifully with pastels and soft greys, alongside brass accents. It’s a truly modern and contemporary look that would suit a new build home.
Now, for each of these white examples, I want to show that there are always other colourways available. This particular design is also available in Olive Green, one of my favourite shades at the moment.
2. Olive Green Wood Panel Wallpaper
I love the stark contrast to white and marble furniture, but this would look equally stunning coordinated with other greens and muted, earthy shades. It’s the ideal backdrop to a more eclectic, bohemian decor, if that’s your preferred taste.
Now, if you’re still loving the dark room vibe, why not try it in Dark Blue. I love the drama of this piece and its particular suitability to a bedroom.
3. Dark Blue Wood Panel Wallpaper
As you can see, introducing darker bedding and a dark wood floor, really intensify the atmosphere of this wallpaper. Equally I can see it working exceptionally well with brighter colours. The contrast of yellows (as in my own living room) or oranges and pinks, bring life and vivacity to a darker wall.
If your taste runs to something a little less contemporary, then why not try this Antique Wood Panel wallpaper, here in Aged White.
Again the softer, less crisp white, lends itself to a colour palette of pastel pinks and green foliage.
An aged wood panel can be tricky to recreate, but a wood effect panel wallpaper, allows you to bring this look into your home at a fraction of the cost and effort.
4. Antique Wood Panel Wallpaper in Aged White
Again, if white isn’t for you and you’d prefer a little more drama on your walls, this design is available in Charcoal too.
I love the chipped effect of this piece, which gives it the perfect aged realism.
And don’t be fooled by the more traditional design; this one is equally at home with a modern monochrome interior, adding a high end touch, and a bespoke decor.
5. Antique Wood Panel Wallpaper in Charcoal
My final choice in the wood panel wallpaper round up, comes from this Contemporary Wood Slat wallpaper, here in Light Oak.
Whilst this one isn’t actually white, it’s a light wood that gives a contemporary feel.
6. Contemporary Wood Slat Wallpaper in Light Oak
We love the soft wood grain of this wood plank wallpaper in light oak.
Now, if you’ve never hung wallpaper before, it’s much easier than you think.
These papers are simple to hang, and easy to remove too. A design like this will be particularly straight forward – measure, cut and paste the paper. Then hang on the wall, using the appropriate tools to get the perfect finish.
If you like this paper but want a little more depth of colour, why not try it in Walnut
7. Walnut Wood Panel Wallpaper
Paired with subtle pink or grey accessories, this design really brings texture and an organic atmosphere to the room. Ideal for a living or dining room space.
8. Pink Wood Panel Wallpaper
We actually can’t get enough of pink walls and pink decor right now. It’s an interior design trend that’s grown in popularity in recent years and we’re thrilled to see it now in this wood panelling wallpaper. Against a neutral backdrop it’s shines, but combine with with greens and blues and you have a truly eye-catching room interior.
9. Rustic Wood Panel Effect Wallpaper
This rustic wood panel wallpaper seen here in a sophisticated grey gives a contemporary edge to a modern home. It pairs really well with aged wooden flooring and modern furniture. Alternatively, mix it up with old leather sofas and rich, decadent soft furnishings.
10. Marvel Wood Panel Wallpaper
Our guide wouldn’t be complete with out this fun addition for the kids. How about a Marvel wood panel wallpaper from I Love Wallpaper ? Yes it’s not timeless, and your kids will tire of it eventually, but if you’re game for some fun on your kids’ walls, then why not! If you don’t want to do the whole room, then certainly consider adding a wood panel accent wall to your child’s bedroom or playroom. I think we’ve proved that wooden planks don’t have to be boring.
11. Grey Wood Panel Wallpaper
Finally, here’s a contemporary wood panel wallpaper in soft grey, ideal for a modern home, a new build, or a room that needs extra character. The colour is easy to live with and coordinate, offering a subtle, timeless addition to a sophisticated room. What we also love about this one is the price. If you’re looking for budget wood panel effect wallpaper at affordable prices then this one is ideal at only £22 per roll.
