Different types of interior wood panels include stone panels, fiberglass panels, raised panels, bead board and flat panels. These products come in a variety of finishes or colors.
Stone panels are often used for accent walls or stone fireplaces. They can look like anything from river rock to bricks or pebbles. Stacked stone is another popular look for wall panels. Whichever rock style is chosen, customer can further personalize the look, by choosing different stack patterns for the stone the like.
Fiberglass wall panels are good choices for areas with moisture like bathrooms or laundry rooms. The material will not mildew, mold or rot. These types of panels normally come in bulk boxes, unlike the stone panels which are ordered specially and in smaller quantities.
Raised panels are similar to flat panels as they are both wood and made to accent flat sections of walls. The difference comes with both difficulty of installation and how the panels are produced. Raised panels are shaped and fashioned in a manner similar to cabinets with mitered edges. Flat panels are made by using wooden frames over plywood to give a three-dimensional look. Raised panel board is normally made from solid lumber or MDF, which is a type of pressed wood. MDF is more durable and thicker than plywood.
