Natural material

The natural material ensures a pleasant indoor climate and is also durable, robust and easy to clean.

Sound and thermal isolation

In addition to the visual effect, solid wood flooring offers good sound and heat isolation. This can be a great advantage, especially in older buildings or in open-plan living concepts, to provide more privacy or reduce energy consumption.

Sustainably

Another plus point of solid wood flooring on walls and ceilings is its sustainability. In contrast to other materials such as plastic or wallpaper, it is environmentally friendly and biodegradable.

Solid wood flooring is being used more and more frequently as a design element not only in living areas, but also in public spaces such as restaurants and hotels. It creates an inviting atmosphere for guests and at the same time conveys naturalness and warmth.

Tips for using
solid wood flooring for walls and ceilings

Solid wood flooring as wall panelling is extremely durable and rarely needs to be replaced compared to wallpaper or paint. Designing walls and ceilings with floorboard elements creates different stylistic impressions compared to using a wooden floor, as the floorboards are installed directly at eye level. The surface of the board needs to be treated differently from a wooden floor panels. It can be assumed that a board will be touched by hands more often if it is used as wall panelling. This is why spots of grease and dirt rarely occur on wall boards. The plank elements on the walls can simply be brushed or sanded and then sealed with hard wax oil.

There are a variety of options for panelling walls and ceilings in a conventional house with concrete or stone walls. A classic method is to fix the floorboards to the walls using holes and dowels. Another option is the wooden construction method, in which the floorboards can also serve as room dividers or partition walls. Even with stone walls, it is advisable to allow slight ventilation.

An interesting way to emphasise the gaps in the wood on the wall is to choose floorboard wall panelling with different widths. In contrast to the floor, you can see the pattern of the gaps better here.

In comparative terms, wooden plank walls are less frequently interrupted by pieces of furniture than those in the floor area. It is also more likely that a plank wall will not be blocked by large pieces of furniture.

As usual, the choice of the best type of wood for wall panelling depends on the lighting. If you have large, floor-to-ceiling windows, darker solid wood flooring can also be used. On the other hand, it is advisable to work with lighter-coloured woods for rooms with less lighting.

With wooden floorboards you can give your room an individual touch and create special effects. Instead of panelling the entire wall, for example, you can use a single floor-to-ceiling solid wood flooring. Another option is to lay the floorboards on the floor and pull them up slightly at the ends in the same direction. This creates an effect similar to that of a painting on the wall. To give the room even more life and dynamism, you can also use a contrasting coloured edge.

Solid wood flooring also harmonises well as wall covering in combination with concrete. The warm wood breaks up the cool and hard appearance of the concrete in an aesthetic way. This gives a wooden floorboard wall a stylish element and creates a cosy and homely atmosphere in an otherwise rather sterile ambience.

Floorboards as ceiling panelling are very popular by homeowners who want to create a rustic or traditional look in their rooms. But there are other advantages of floorboards as ceiling panelling.

First of all, they offer excellent sound isolation and insulation against heat and cold transmission. This allows you to reduce your energy costs by keeping the room warm in winter and pleasantly cool in summer.

What’s more, wood is a sustainable material that is extremely durable. A well-kept wooden ceiling can last for decades without discolouring or looking worn.
