The mid-century modern design is a popular trend for wood paneling, embracing the natural look of wood. The ultra modern trend is to use sleek, vertical wood panels to amplify or divide a room. To do this, simply use thin and long strips of wood that are spaced apart.

If however, you are after a current look that retains an old wood charm, there are many options to reinvent wood paneling into a more modern version.  Raised wood panels can be painted, stained, rotated (vertically),separated (with detailing) or try wainscotting, mixing wood profiles or adding beams.

A whitewash technique is an easy way to give wood paneling a fresh look. To do this, use paint mixed with water and then wipe the paneling. Make sure to wipe off any excess paint right away to reveal a lighter tone of wood. Using this technique, you can add modern charm without losing any of the character of the wood.

Wood paneling can be made of a variety of woods and can either be made of individual pieces or panel sheets with patterns carved into them. It is often used as feature walls in different rooms, as well as in media units. Flat-paneled wood has the advantage of retaining the natural graphic of wood, and the flat-paneled look breaks down large panels into smaller ones, adding visual composition to a room.
