In every home, the kitchen and dining areas are a focal point. These areas are where the family comes together in the mornings and evenings, sharing meals and conversations; energizing, or unwinding. For the kitchen and dining areas to be both comfortable and welcoming, the right materials need to be used for new builds and renovations.

Food, cooking, and conversation, are all very natural things. Which is why a natural building material also makes sense. Timber is warm, timeless, and can be strikingly beautiful. If you’re planning a kitchen for a new home or if it’s time for remodeling, then our interior pine paneling could be the perfect material for your rustic kitchen renovations.

Pine Paneling in 2017?

prefinished pine panelingThere are still people that hold negative perceptions of timber paneling, but this is usually because of poor experiences with materials from the 1970s and 80s. When paneling hit a boom in these decades, the materials used were not always of high quality. Sometimes they were simple laminates or printed veneers, and they were neither beautiful or particularly long-lasting.

An Eco-Friendly Material for Modern Times

Plaster and drywall were used extensively throughout the 1990s and 00s. As people chased an ultra-clean ‘modern’ aesthetic, it seemed that many home designers lost sight of what beauty actually means. Painted drywall and plastered walls are useful in some scenarios, but they are susceptible to damage and they start to look worse as they age. Every day, homeowners are finding that the bland looks of flat painted walls are no longer attractive, and this is why classic timber paneling is experiencing a resurgence.

When you think of an old log home or the luxurious grand hotels of yesteryear; high-quality timber walls were common. Homes today that use timber are able to stand out, and prefinished interior pine paneling is the easiest way to get the natural look and feel of timber in your home.

Best of all, timber is eco-friendly, particularly when you choose pine or cedar paneling. The panels are made with raw timber that comes from sustainable forests, and the panels can last for decades in a home, which will reduce waste. Timber paneling is also energy efficient, so using eco-friendly wood paneling can reduce your energy costs as well as your carbon footprint.

When you have the benefits of beauty, energy efficiency, and environmental friendliness, it’s obvious that you’re onto a good material for your build or renovation. However, there’s one other benefit that you can factor into your choice for interior pine paneling.

Our timber paneling use a tongue and groove system that we pioneered. Matched grooves run along both the ends and the lengths of our panels, which makes installation simple with less waste and fewer materials needed. There are fewer wasted cuts, and installation times are greatly reduced. A medium sized room can easily be completed as a day project, and even if you’re hiring a contractor you will spend less money because of the time saved.

Tongue and groove timber paneling is a modern solution based on a classic idea. There are no tacky ‘wood grain’ imitations here, and instead, you’ll get the best quality in finished knotty pine paneling that will increase the beauty and value of your home.
