Industrial style – set to stay in 2020…
Just like fashion, trends come and go… Whilst most styles are reinvented to suit modern day living, the trend of industrial style has only become more popular in recent years.
Primarily inspired by the many conversions of open plan warehouses and disused mills, the key elements that are synonymous with industrial style are feature walls including exposed bricks and pipework, coupled with architectural features such as metal partitioning and window frames.
Our Acupanel range, with the added benefit of acoustic insulation is an ideal choice if you are lucky enough to live in a converted open plan space such as a warehouse.
However, as these converted buildings are few and far between, many of us who love industrial style simply introduce some of the signature hallmarks into our living spaces.
Reclamation yards are a great place to source architectural findings. From unwanted wooden flooring and structural roof beams to reclaimed doors, windows and wall panelling, these places are hidden treasures.
Whilst these items may seem a reasonable purchase, there is often a certain amount of restoration required before the items can be used, so in the long run, it can often work out more expensive than buying new.
That’s certainly the case with wooden wall panelling… Restoring reclaimed wall panelling is not only time consuming, but costly too! Ultimately, you’re likely to find that over time the wood has warped and is simply unusable!
And, whilst you might assume that by buying reclaimed you’re being kind to the environment, here at PLAANK all our wooden wall panelling is responsibly sourced and fully sustainable, frequently reclaimed from already fallen trees and disused barns.
In fact, our Reclaimed range has been specifically chosen for its authentic appearance, making it the perfect choice for anyone wanting a vintage inspired wallcovering.
That said, industrial style isn’t all about a rustic appearance, as many warehouse conversions are super stylish minimal interiors.
TimberStik is a wallcovering range with a more refined appearance.
Offered in a choice of six contemporary finishes including Harlequin, which features a multitude of vibrant shades, it’s our easiest wooden wall panelling to apply, as each panel is supplied with an adhesive backing strip!
In reality, buying from PLAANK means minimum wastage, no prep work and simply fabulous products, so as soon as your wall panelling is delivered, you can create that feature wall in your home you’ve always dreamt of!
