New and Exciting Wall Treatments!

While wallpaper is generally the first wall treatment we think of adorning walls with, it’s certainly not the only thing that can be put on walls! There are some really great alternatives to wallpaper that add depth, texture and much, much more to a wall. Here are some examples:


This re-purposed wood wall is absolutely amazing. The wide selection of colors is something you couldn’t even find in wallpaper, and yet because they are all different variations of wood they go together beautifully. Another plus to this wall is that the wood is being re-purposed! Whether it’s from old barns, sheds or picture frames, the wood has found another life. It really doesn’t get more magnificent than this!

Here’s another wood wall that is worth mentioning. Less eclectic than the last one, this wall ties the different wood colors together beautifully. It’s soothing and comforting, perfect for a nursery!

If you don’t like the color variation quite as much, consider a subtler greyish wood like this one. This wall is very much a conversation starter, especially if the wood is being re-purposed.


Lacquer is so much fun because it produces a sheen that paint or wallpaper could never achieve. This glamorous wall is a stunning accent that could be done in the bathroom, kitchen or even the bedroom.

This lacquer wall is as unique as it gets! A plain old wall painted this color just wouldn’t do what lacquer can achieve.

This lacquer wall is a more subtle color than that above but it’s equally as enchanting. That shine is a texture virtually unachievable by any other material, and it looks absolutely fabulous.

This wall is so classy! The fretwork creates depth that no wallpaper or paint could dream of doing. This is an architecturally clean example of fretwork that I just adore.

If you want to do a more edgy fretwork wall, consider doing just a portion of the wall like this one.

Conversely, you could go all out and do floor to ceiling of ornate fretwork paneling. It’s not for everyone, but you have to admit it’s unique!

From beautiful woodwork to regal lacquer to ornamental fretwork, the possibilities of adding depth to your walls are endless. What are some trends you’ve been seeing lately?
