Ceiling & Wall Planking

View our past vintage and specialty wood ceiling & wall planking projects here.

Ceiling & wall planking is the process of covering the ceiling or wall with parallel planks for aesthetic and functional purposes. The planks are usually uniform in size and thickness, with an indentation on the edges. These grooves lock the planks into place without the need for nails or special adhesives.

There is a wide range of materials used for ceiling & wall planks such as fiberboards, tiles, and laminated pressed wood. But an emerging trend in the interior design industry is the use of reclaimed wood planks.

Reclaimed timbers are highly prized for their durability and aesthetic appeal. Their naturally-weathered look creates a classic, rustic charm that takes you back a few centuries. Aside from beams and boards, reclaimed woods also make excellent planks. These planks are often used as floorings, walls, and ceilings.

Benefits of Reclaimed Wood Planks

Insulation

Woods have excellent insulating properties. This means that the temperature inside your home isn’t easily affected by the weather outside. Its cellular structure is hardwired to absorb and retain heat fifteen times better than masonry. This natural insulation also helps you save on electric bills during the summer and winter months.

Versatility

Since most reclaimed woods are hand-hewn and exposed to the elements, their textures vary. That’s why they are perfect for a wide range of projects. This versatility is especially useful for projects that require a specific surface texture. You can roughen them up for a more natural look or polish them to achieve that luxurious gleam. It’s totally up to you.

Adds Character

Reclaimed wood ceilings and walls add an undeniable aesthetic character to a building. It makes a rather uninviting structure feel warm and cozy. Darker wood colors also add an air of sophisticated luxury to a space. Even without crystal chandeliers or gleaming decorations, vintage woods can bring out a special kind of elegance to your home.

Durability

Compared with modern timbers, reclaimed woods are more durable and can last for decades. Most of these woods were cut at a time when fully matured naturally grown trees were still abundant. They have denser trunks that can better withstand the test of time. Also, they’ve been exposed to the elements for long periods and remained intact. If that’s not evidence of their durability, then nothing is.

Sustainability

If you care for the environment, reclaimed wood planks are the best choice for you. Used woods are repurposed, so no new trees are cut – a win for mother nature.

Aside from being environment-friendly, wooden ceiling and wall planks are good for human health too. Unlike chemically-treated materials, it does not give off toxic particles that might be harmful to your health.
