Ideas for Contrasting Wall Panels

At DAS, we believe that walls don’t need to be the blank canvas to hang art from, but rather that the wall themselves should take centre stage!

To help you think up your own innovative ways to decorate your wall, we’ve gathered some different ideas around using contrast to make a feature out of your walls in your home.

  • Go Bold - If you look at our range of wooden wall panels, you’ll see that you can make quite a striking impression by adding different packages together. If you really want to make a statement with your wall, then try alternating light and dark wooden panels in a square or rectangle in the middle of your wall.
  • Subtle Effects – Another idea is a different take on our first one. Here, you can choose different dark, or different light panels and place them together to give a subtle change in tone. This creates a sophisticated and soft effect that works well in rooms in which you want to create a sense of elegance.
  • Splashes of Difference – Go funky by choosing one main wooden wall panel, dark colours work well as a base colour, and then every now and then, include a lighter colour wooden panel within the wall. This idea works well if you are planning to use wooden panels on every wall in a room, as it breaks up the colour nicely.
  • Mix Textures – Instead of contrasting panels with each other, you could contrast your wall colour with your wooden panels. We suggest making one statement wall in a room and painting it with a bright or bold colour of your choice. Now all you need to do is add your wall panel pattern in the middle as a great contrasting pattern.
  • Create Lines – Place your panels into contrasting horizontal or vertical lines on your wall, whichever suits your décor the most. This idea is also a great way to separate different sections of a room. Draw visitors’ eyes to key areas of a room by using these lines to your advantage.

These are just a few ideas of how you can use contrasting wooden wall panels in your home to create a stylish statement. If you’ve done something similar to this, or done something completely different with your wall panels to create an amazing effect, then we’d love to hear about it! 

We love how using wall panels in different ways allows you to be so creative. By using them artistically, you can create an effect that makes your home completely unique and your own. At the same time, our wooden wall panels are subtle enough that they stay stylish in any home. Whether a few of them are used to make a statement on a wall, or if you decide to use a wall of them to act as a room divider, they are a piece of art all of their own.
