Wood walls, wood inner linings… Do you have doubts about which is the ideal wall covering? We will attempt to give you an answer here.
Some of the goals sought when using inner linigns on the walls of houses, offices or workplaces are the same. In all cases, there is an effort to hide the underlying materials (brick, concrete, etc.) and employ wall coverings, to improve the appearance of a room which, for residential or work purposes, is to be used by several people for many hours a day.
The inner linings can be made of different materials and qualities, but wood wall covering is the most highly rated because of the specific aesthetic properties of wood: the warmth it conveys. That is the reason why, whether in shades of oak, beech, maple, cherry or wenge, wood panelling is the most widely used wall covering used.
In addition, wood is sound-absorbent. This means that it has the ability to absorb sound, which is very useful when you want to carry out the acoustic conditioning of an office or meeting room. In these cases, the wood panels used in the wall covering will be acoustic panels, especially selected after the appropriate preliminary acoustic study. These acoustic panels are not only used to form wood walls. They are are also used when installing wood ceilings and acoustic ceilings, which also serve in the acoustic conditioning of offices.
For these reasons, wood panelling is the most widely-used wall covering when decorating offices and homes.
