#1: As you can see here – one great idea is to try it as a means to minimize waste. When wood is cut up to make panels or other features, you always have scraps left over. And these can be used to form a pleasant and different mosaic, as here.

#2: Here is another great idea. While this does take more work – and you will need to ensure that you commission a good architect and woodworker to execute it. The textured wave style detailing on the walls adds a really modern futuristic touch by adding fluidity to geometric lines! Plus, this could serve as a very strategic way to mask drawers and other storage spaces hidden into the wood paneling. When it comes to wood wall design ideas, this one is one of the more ornate.

#3: So much for square wood panel mosaics, here is something that is somewhat more extravagant. It is still a mosaic though, but this needs to be done for its own sake, and not out of scraps. But the effect – the interplay of the different shades of the wood makes for a really different featured wall.

#5: Speaking of mosaic wooden wall designs, you can also consider more intricate designs – these only infuse more sophistication and character into your living space! Wouldn’t you say that if you walked into a room which had a pastel shade for 3 walls, and the above wooden ‘tapestry’ for the 4th?

#6: Here’s another idea – instead of going wooden for the walls, go for regular walls and get wooden wall cabinets instead. This is a particularly good idea for a kitchen and dining space, like here. As you can see the area under the wooden cabinets is also mosaic, and you can easily work in a wooden mosaic here as well. Wood wall design ideas work with lots of other kinds of decor. This is just another example.

#8: Here’s another idea, this time for the bathroom. As you can see, there is wood detailing for the wall, the seat, the floating rack and even the tub filler outlet! Along with the pristine white walls and fittings, this really gives the room stark contrast that looks very good! Wood wall design ideas that use contrasting colors are always a good idea.
