How To Find Barn Wood Wall Ideas For Your Home

Let’s be real, looking at these fun barn wood wall ideas may be inspiring, but it’s much harder to find the right style for your own home. This is because your home style and taste is unique to you. So if you want to make finding the right wood wall accent easier, here are three things you can do.

  1. Simplify the room. A barn wood wall will be the statement piece in any room. If the place you are adding it to is busy with other design features, your new wall may get lost in the mess. So it’s essential to simplify the room before you install your barn wood wall accent piece. 
  2. Use complementary colors. Make sure the colors you incorporate not only complement the barn wood wall but lay a foundation for it to shine its brightest. Colors like white or grey lay a perfect canvas for most any accent walls. Consider the other design elements in the room when choosing a color for your foundational walls.
  3. Embrace minimalism. This theme is found in the previous two points, but it’s worth emphasizing. Minimalism lets your accent pieces shine. It says, “focus on this one design element.” It naturally focuses the eye on the most stylish piece in the room: your barn wood wall. So declutter, go minimal, and let your wall stand out.

If you have other concerns with adding a barn wood wall to your home, we would be happy to make design recommendations. It isn’t always easy, but the warming reward of having a barn wood wall is well worth the work.
