Barn board can be used anywhere Knotty Pine paneling is installed. It looks great on walls in any color you choose. Matching trim and molding can be ordered with the panels to provide a super look that will provide a pleasurable décor in any room.

Faux barn board, like our Knotty Pine paneling, is free from insects, odors, nails, and uneven sizes like reclaimed or recycled old wood. It can be ordered raw or stained with one of our good-looking colors. Some cabin owners like to mix and match the colors and the directions the wood is laid out – horizontally, vertically, diagonally, or a unique pattern.

Rustic Barn Board

Applying faux barn board is becoming increasingly popular on ceilings and around kitchen islands. Its tongue and groove manufacture makes it easy to apply to ceilings, unlike heavy drywall. Each piece fits together with a snap and then held in place with a nail gun.

One person can generally install this paneling on ceilings, although it is quicker and easier when two people do the work together. It’s a real time and neck-saver when you order pre-finished paneling. There’s no straining your neck and shoulders to apply the finish, you don’t need to hire a painter, or wait for it to dry.

Wainscoting Is In Today

Wainscoting for a Rustic Touch

A trend that brings back memories for many is using wainscoting on the walls. This application breaks up a large wall into a more eye-pleasing look. Add chair railing at the right height to protect it from chairs in kitchens and dining rooms.

This splendid arrangement shows how faux barn wood can be applied to walls. The lower portion with vertical panels is enhanced with wood applied at 45-degree angles. Arrange it your own way with different colors, widths of boards and layout.

Natural Knotty Pine Tongue and Groove Is a Win-Win Approach

We’ve saved one of the best features of our Knotty Pine and Faux Barn Board until last. Each piece is tongue and groove with end-matching for fast and easy installation. You can save up to 20% in labor time and up to 20% in material waste.

Tongue and groove overcomes the drawbacks of old-style paneling without it. Measuring and sawing go faster because you cut fewer pieces. The panels end-butt on studs or anywhere between them for a secure fit. Use a nail gun to secure each one in place starting at the bottom and working your way up.
