A Dining Room with Knotty Pine Paneling

Pine tongue and groove paneling used in dens or family rooms create a striking appearance. It looks great in log homes and conventionally styled homes because it presents a warm and cozy atmosphere. Homeowners say it provides a welcoming a soothing feeling to come home to after a hard day at work or play. Use tongue and groove pine wood paneling in your den! 

Putting nature or your walls is not the same as installing drywall, tile, or other man-made materials. You see the natural beauty of knots, mineral streaks, colors, and grain variations. Pine is a sustainable material that’s been around for a long time and will continue to be a wall favorite. It’s sustainable because select trees are harvested from tree farms.

Problems You Will Encounter with Using Other Types of Wood

All wood materials for wall use are not the same and you should consider the problems with three other types of common products.

  • Non-Tongue and Groove Boards – Boards without the useful tongue and groove/end-matching features must be spliced on studs. This method of installation requires more measuring time, takes longer, and wastes more wood. Although each board may cost less initially, you will waste money on the lost wood and extra time it takes to install. Another disadvantage is that nail or screw heads show through the faces of boards.

    Choose Prefinished Pine Wall Planks Over Reclaimed Wood

  • Reclaimed or Recycled Planks – Taking this route for paneling presents another set of issues unique to these materials. You, or someone, may need to remove nails, staples, or screws from the planks before they can be used. Then, you’ll have the issue of unsightly holes in the wood. You are never sure of what you are getting with reclaimed or recycled wood products. They may contain odors, toxins, insects, lead paint, mildew, stains, or problems not readily detected on the surface. It is usually necessary to sort good pieces from a bundle, rip them to width, or cut to the right length.
  • 4’x8’ Sheets of Paneling – Although some of these simulated paneling sheets are still available, they are flimsy and look outdated. If you want the real wood look and feel, don’t buy these ultra-thin veneer or faux wood products. It’s weak between studs and can get broken because it’s not thick enough to be sturdy.
