Tongue and Groove Wall Paneling Joins the Comeback Club

Flat tongue and groove wall paneling is all of the rage. While the technique has existed for what seems like eons, the resulting compact look has made a recent comeback.

Tongue and groove joints let horizontal pieces of wood to be combined together to make one level surface. Famous for their rich texture, striped pattern and ability to dramatically alter the feeling of a room, horizontal tongue and groove walls especially pop in contrast to the blank canvas of shingles.

This classic wall treatment is an especially efficient way to cover old, damaged walls. In my 90-year-old residence, we are likely to cover crackly plaster. Just set it and forget it.

Whether they have a natural walnut finish, are painted brightly or are combined with additional architectural components, tongue and groove walls are certain to define a space, function as a focal point and pack an architectural punch.
