Wood on the walls was a popular mid-century decorating trend, and, like many looks of that time, it's recently re-emerged, new and improved. Discover how you can transform a room from top to bottom with the enduring beauty and durability of Armstrong Flooring products — on your walls.
Today's style-minded homeowners are approaching flooring from whole new angle — using it to create accent walls and artistic focal points that reflect their unique style and bring distinctive character to a space.
Whatever one-of-a-kind look you imagine for your home, Armstrong Flooring can help you achieve it. We've made some of our most on-trend and durable flooring options adaptable for wall installations. They're easy to install, easy to care for and easy to love.
Let's take a closer look at our two products that you can use on the walls: engineered hardwood and premium wood-look laminate.
Engineered Hardwood is the most coveted type of flooring, so it's no wonder that it's also popular for interior wall design. Our engineered hardwood offers not only natural beauty and timeless style, but it is designed with a sturdy construction and rugged durability to last for many years to come.
Enjoy these benefits:
- Reliable stability. Engineered hardwood is built in a way that minimizes unsightly gaps. Many competitors' planks are less stable, so gaps can show if they shift after installation.
- Protective surface. Durable urethane coating protects the wood. Many competitors' wall planks have no protective coating, so they are susceptible to stains and wear.
- Install anywhere. Engineered Hardwood can be a great fit for walls on any level of the home, and in almost any room.
- DIY-friendly. Tongue-and-groove installation is quick and easy.
- Easy to clean. Simply sweep or wipe to remove dust and debris.
