A wooden wall treatment can add character to any style of home. You can use the treatment to accent certain parts of the room, cover an entire wall, and even carry the wood treatment to the ceiling. How you use wood wall treatment in your home comes down to personal preference and style.

Once you’ve decided how you’re going to use your wood treatment, it’s time to decide what other colors that will work well. Primarily, what wall colors complement a wood wall treatment?

The Tones in Your Wood Wall Treatment

Looking at the color and the tones of your wall treatment will help you find the right palette for the entire room. However, you want to be careful that you don’t get too matchy-matchy. The trick is to find the paint color that will complement and highlight the wood. You want to balance out the tones in the wood, but you don’t want the colors to blend so perfectly that everything becomes too monochromatic.

Balancing Warm and Cool Tones

The tones of your wall treatment will depend on the type of wood that you choose to work with, as well as the stain and finish of the treatment.

Using a reclaimed wood with distinct patterns, grains, and hues from plank to plan can make a dramatic statement in a room.

Letting the natural characteristics of the wood wall treatment shine is going to add warmth. Therefore, using a wall color with cooler tones will balance the warmer tones in the wood.

Cool Contrast

Each piece of wood will have a rainbow of colors and shades. When you choose a color for your walls, find one of the lightest shades in the wood treatment and match that to your walls. This will add a beautiful cool contrast to the darkest and warmest colors in the treatment.
