weathered knotty pine panelingDo you know what the interesting thing is about most locker rooms? They all look pretty much exactly the same. What we’ve just said there, however, is a bit of a contradiction. They look the same because they all use the same brick walls, the same concrete floors, and the same boring rubber trim. The problem is that you may not know how to break out of that rut, after all, how exactly do you turn a locker room more interesting? It doesn’t matter if it’s at a gym, a pool, or a club, you need to find a way to make that room more appealing and while some say the best way to get the job done, is with weathered knotty pine paneling, we disagree. Cedar would definitely be the better candidate for the job.

Weathered Knotty Pine Paneling  vs. Cedar

The first thing we need to address is the reason for which most locker rooms are made from cinderblocks. Locker rooms, by nature, create quite a bit of moisture and with that being the case, you simply cannot build one with drywall. The problem is that moisture would simply sink into the drywall in question, and the moment that happens, you create a health hazard. That being said, you need to strongly consider using either cinderblocks or treated wood that is designed to repel water and other forms of moisture. If you were to use straight drywall, you would immediately be dealing with mold, or black mold in particular. Using cedar pine paneling has plenty of advantages, and for that reason, it’s something that you will want to consider. That’s not the only reason you want it though! We mentioned earlier that knotty pine paneling isn’t a good idea, and we’re making this statement simply because cedar is far more moisture resistant, especially if it is properly sealed.

Along with changing the scenery in your locker room, cedar paneling will do a great job of bringing better taste and character to the space. If you’re running a more sophisticated establishment then the addition of wood paneling is going to bring to you a much better aesthetic. It will be warm, it will be sophisticated, and most importantly, it will be fun to look at. We can almost guarantee that adding wood paneling to your locker room will get all of your customers talking about you and you might even gain a few new patrons because of it – it’s hard to say.

An Easy Installation

Wood Workers ShoppeUnlike other paneling options, the product from Wood Workers Shoppe provides for a very easy installation for a few reasons. First of all, the interlocking panels make the entire process painless. With many other products you would probably find yourself cutting pieces and trying to ‘make it work’, which often produces an unsatisfactory result in the end. With this product however you will only need to worry about nailing it up after a single cut at each end of the wall. The wood can be properly sealed so that it does not absorb moisture and from there it will be up to you to enjoy your amazing new locker room. If that doesn’t sound great, we don’t know what does.
