RG’s Complete Guide To Wood Paneling





One of the hottest “new” trends I’m seeing this year is the extensive use of real wood paneling. I say “real” because I’m not talking about the wood paneling of the 1970’s. No photo-finish veneer paneling here! I’m talking about real wood paneling!

Paneling Wood Comes In Many Forms

The number of looks that can be obtained using wood to cover your indoor walls is vast. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to cover all of the best and coolest of them! Such as:

  • painted wood paneling
  • ceiling wood paneling
  • beadboard paneling
  • board-and-batten paneling
  • plywood paneling
  • real wood veneer paneling
  • wainscot paneling
  • raised-panel paneling

We’ll see pictures of all of these ideas and we’ll look at both traditional and modern looks that can be obtained with wood.  Don’t miss a single idea in this series, Subscribe by Feedburner Email!

Installing Wood Paneling

Our training wouldn’t be complete if we stopped with the ideas. We’re also going to look at the practical knowledge of:

  • What to buy
  • Where to buy it
  • How to install it
  • How to finish it
  • What goes with it

By the time we finish, you’ll be a Paneling Ninja!



Not Your Traditional Post Series

I’m coming up on the one year anniversary for Remodeling Guy. In that time, I’ve learned a little about me and blogging. I’m not great at keeping to set blogging schedules. Other duties sometimes interfere.  (see the subscribe links below to be sure not to miss anything)

So installments in this post series will have little, if any, discernable pattern. I might post two installments in a day, or one a week. Maybe on Monday, maybe on Thursday. Who knows?

I’ll mix these posts in with other regular content.

I expect the series overall to be fairly complete and detailed. It will probably take at least a half-dozen posts, probably more.

Ninja Training is serious business, especially when tons of awesome pictures are involved.
