Why Choose PLAANK Reclaimed Wall Panels?

The feature wall is destined for a makeover...

You've put up with that garish patterned wallpaper, that at the time seemed a good idea, for far too long!

You've scoured Pinterest for inspiration and decided on a tactile, homely feel…

The solution? A reclaimed wall with feature wood wall paneling...

The dilemma is now whether to scour the reclamation yards for matching timber planks, which will obviously require love, care and attention to bring them to a satisfactory state before attaching to a wall or to choose revolutionary, on trend wall paneling?

If your ultimate decision is the latter, then look no further than PLAANK!

Here at PLAANK we often get asked “why buy from us?

Fundamentally the choice is yours, but like so many people, time is precious… Why would you want to spend copious amounts of time trawling the internet or reclamation yards to find your perfect weathered wood, only to end up disappointed that you simply can’t find what you’re looking for! And equally, even if you do find it, there is all the prep work to make the wood paneling fit for use.

So, if you’re still not convinced as to why to buy from PLAANK, have you considered the following five issues? 

  • Uniformity…

Wall paneling from PLAANK is uniform. Each piece has been manufactured to strict tolerances to ensure consistency from plank to plank. The same cannot be said for timber from a reclamation yard – one end of the plank could be wider than the other, have water damage or be warped.

  • Quantity …

There is likely to be a lot of wastage when timber from a reclamation yard is chosen! You simply won’t be able to use every inch of the timber, so will have to allow for this. Equally, apart from allowing for cuts, you are safe in the knowledge that every single PLAANK piece will be suitable for use!

  • Feature grain…

The most interesting part of reclaimed wood is the outside surface and the end grain. The interior surface grain looks very similar to the realistic wood grain of each PLAANK panel. And so it should… All PLAANK products* are sourced from reclaimed wood, so like every piece of timber, each panel is unique!

  • No preparation required…

One rogue nail will wreak havoc with your saw blade – good salvage yards will have removed any they see! Why worry though – with PLAANK wall panels you’re 100% guaranteed not to find any!

And finally…

  • Toxicity…

You cannot simply assume that any paint found on a piece of reclaimed wood is safe! The chances are it is lead based and therefore toxic! All these sections will have to be cut out adding to the overall wastage!

And if the above isn’t enough to convince you, why not order a sample to see for yourself the stunning quality of all PLAANK products…
