Although installing wood flooring on walls may seem like a crazy idea, there is no reason whatsoever that wood flooring can’t be used effectively and imaginatively to clad walls. If you’re looking for a natural and slightly unusual wood clad style for your room, wood flooring installed on your walls may well prove to be your perfect solution.
The effect of using wood flooring on walls can be really stunning and can add either a modern or traditional look to your room, depending on which species of wood you choose and how you choose to install it.One important thing to bear in mind however, before even considering installing wood flooring on your wall, is that the base on which you’ll fit the floor is stable. The reason for this is that wood flooring must be staggered when it’s fitted, so it simply can’t be fitted over an unstable surface whereby the planks can’t be secured along the their entire length. Installing plywood on your wall before fitting the wood flooring to the wall makes an ideal, stable surface.
When it comes to installing the wood flooring on your wall, you’ll need to decide whether you want it to be installed vertically, horizontally or even diagonally. Diagonal installation probably isn’t an ideal method for DIY-ers
