Walls of wood are one of the ways of resolving the problem with focal walls. Even in the bathroom, when relaxing in the tub, why not rest your eyes on something precious and rich like wood? In bathrooms, focal walls are an interesting idea as long as the walls covered in wood slats or panels enhance the space and bring out the best in the bathroom’s design. In bedrooms, walls of wood can add spiritual simplicity to that space behind the bed, the one we see every night right before we go to sleep. Wouldn’t you like to see a natural colored wall of wood as a comforting, warm image before you rest? Or would you rather spend some vacations enjoying the forests?

If you can’t decide which portion of your home needs a makeover, look at the detailed walls of wood in the photos below and you will surely find at least a few of your favorite looks.
