5. Bright Painted Wall Panels
Modern panels are usually in bright colors. We love this fiery turquoise slate paneling in the bedroom, and you can totally do it yourself.
What to look for? If your interior siding is original and in good condition, it’s best to keep it rather than paint over it. Again, intricate siding designs don’t lend themselves to bold paint colors. If you want to change your siding design, customize it with specialized composite panels.
6. Painted tongue and groove wall panels
To give a cohesive bedroom space, paint half of the paneling the same color as the other elements around the room. These tongue and groove panels add all the relaxed vibe to this bedroom space. Of course, painting the panel means no small amount of work, and you can just customize your bedroom space with a WPC wall panel by color.

Wall panels is also the perfect backdrop for gallery wall ideas. Choose white or another color that best matches the rest of the interior and the artwork you will be displaying for a truly modern look.

These modern paneling systems allow creative people to imagine and implement innovative feature wall installations.

10. Art Deco style wall panels
We love the idea of art deco wall panels, a look that will certainly enhance a period modern space. The gold accents near the feature wall add a touch of luxury that complements the fresh ivory color of the wall panels, making it a true feature.
How to choose decorative wall panels?
Certainly, we usually find traditional style dark wood wall panels in old historic buildings that complement their era. They may now be considered outdated by some, but they should be celebrated and maintained and kept largely in their original form.
In modern times, we have more modern geometric forms of wood wall panels that will help us create a lighter, warmer, and characterful natural interior space while improving the positive effects of acoustics and microclimate that benefit our mental, emotional and physical health.
That said, being sensitive to the age of your home is key when you want to make changes to your interior, such as adding panels. If you live on a listed property, you should talk to the local conservation officer to see if the paneling is acceptable.
In addition to making sure the design is appropriate for the period of your house, there are other aesthetic considerations. Where full height is not used, paneling is often best installed at a third or two-thirds of the height of the room, although this may be affected by features such as fireplaces or bay windows.
You should also consider the size of the individual panel frames. Larger areas look good with larger frame sizes, while smaller, awkward spaces tend to lend themselves to paneling with edging.
Does decorative wall paneling make a room look smaller?
This will depend on.
The level of natural light.
The height of the wall paneling.
The shade of the wood or composite wall paneling.
The accompanying shade of the plain walls, ceiling, and floor.
Simply put, lighter shades of wood wall paneling will help us avoid making the room feel smaller.
If we assume an average level of daylight into a small space. Medium to low height mid-tone wall panels combined with lighter-toned walls above and ceilings with lighter floor tones will help ensure that the wall panels work in a small room.
Floor-to-ceiling height wall panels are best applied to larger rooms and create only one feature wall.
