If you live in a builder home or have basic walls but would like to add character to them, paneling may be just what you are looking for. It is not hard to do and adds instant style . It is also not that expensive to do as well.
Depending on the paneling you choose, it can look great in both contemporary and traditional homes. There is a look for every style.
Vertical paneling, board and batten, wainscot paneling, bead board paneling and modern paneling can definitely bring a room to life and not make it so cookie cutter basic.
For our bedroom Scott bought trim the same thickness as our baseboards and is installing it on the walls. We chose the width that seemed appropriate for the size of the room and length of the wall. You will need a chop saw, pneumatic nailer, caulking and of course paint.
Here are some photos for inspiration!
