Panel the Heart (kitchen) of Your Log Home with Pine or Cedar

A Beautiful Knotty Pine Kitchen

Whether you’re building a new home or renovating your current one, think about using real wood paneling in the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of most homes these days because they are being used for more purposes than just preparing and cooking food, including:

  • Entertaining family, friends, and guests
  • Sharing the food prep and cooking with others
  • Having conversations at the kitchen table
  • Doing homework or paying bills on the table
  • Watching television while seated in an open-concept home
  • Displaying items on shelves and in open cabinets
  • Stocking a wide variety of food and kitchen gadgets in a pantry

You can have a more relaxing experience in the kitchen in your log or conventional home with beautiful and rustic Pine or Cedar paneling. Use this material on the walls, ceiling, backsplashes, and an island. Learn more about the benefits of Pine paneling.

Panel Your Walls with Real Wood

The first place we typically think about when the subject of paneling comes up is installing it on the walls. Panels come in convenient sizes for any size or style of home in these packages:

Paneled Backsplashes Look Amazing!

Knotty Pine Enhances Backsplash

Instead of using painted drywall or tile for your kitchen backsplashes, consider using Knotty Pine, Cedar, or Barnwood to match up with the natural look of the walls. All three varieties are available in unfinished, stained, or custom-painted varieties.

Our paneling is easy to install for all applications because it has tongue and groove features on all sides and ends. You will save up to 20% in labor and up to 20% in material waste compared to non-tongue and groove wood. The tops, bottoms, and ends of the panels lock solidly together anywhere between studs. Measure, check, and saw less for fast and easy installation.

Paneling Looks Natural On the Ceiling

A Well-Done Log Home Ceiling

Many homeowners install Pine, Cedar, or Barnwood paneling on their ceilings instead of painted and textured drywall. Our “whitewashed” pine paneling looks terrific on ceilings and adds a lighter color touch to any room.

Paneling installs the same way on ceilings as it does on walls. Put each piece in place, tap it securely, and attach with a nail gun. It’s as simple as that.

Surround an Island with Panels

Are you thinking about using an island in the kitchen? Surround it with one of our varieties of real wood panels. This piece of furniture can serve as a food preparation area, storage, and a sink if desired. There’s nothing like having some extra room to work in the kitchen, especially when 2 or 3 people are working together.

An island is even more useful when it has drawers, doors, and shelving on one or more sides and ends. Have items available in a handy place where they are out of sight until you need them. Add a beautiful countertop and you’re in business! See more ideas about using Pine paneling in this informative article.
