Installation Guide

Acclimating your wood

Wood is a natural material which reacts to its environment. For the best results, store your panels in their new home for several days prior to installation. Your product should NOT be delivered to the installation site until the area is completely closed off to the elements and maintains a relative room temperature.

Our Wood Wall collections are suitable for indoor installations only. The area should be protected from the elements and completely dry.

Tools Required

  • nail gun or adhesive (e.g. Liquid Nails)
  • hand miter saw and/or a chop saw
  • tape measure
  • (laser) level
  • pencil
  • ladder
  • personal protective equipment

Pro Tips

The best visual results are achieved when the area you are installing is black prior to installation. We recommend thin roofing paper stapled to the wall prior to install. This hides the color of the wall behind the wood for holes and knots. Install the wood on the wall in randomly staggered seams so that the seams do not align (unless your layout requires otherwise). Construction adhesive is ideal for the best bonding results and is highly recommended for cabinet, ceiling, and door applications!

To get a better idea of the installation process, watch some helpful videos we have provided links to on YouTube before you start.

Wood Wall Store panels are made entirely of authentic, reclaimed wood from a variety of sources. This solid wood product is a natural material that contains varying characteristics in grain, color, and texture. Each piece of wood is unique due to its exposure to father time and mother nature. Photographs and samples should be viewed as illustrative of the products they represent but not an exact match. However, if you have concerns about your product, please contact us immediately. It is the installer’s responsibility to correctly install per the instructions and or any local building code and or regulations.

We accept no responsibility for incorrect installation of this product.


Start the first row as level as possible along the ceiling. DO NOT TRUST THAT YOUR CEILING OR FLOOR IS SQUARE AND LEVEL. Use your level to mark a straight line on the wall as a guide before positioning the panels. Starting at the top of the wall, place the first panel on the left side and follow the level line. Continue with other panels until you reach the end of the row, using a table saw or a cross-cut saw to cut the necessary length. The leftover piece of panel may be used to start the next row keeping your staggered seams in mind.

Continue to work top to bottom, from left to right, as you add rows. After the installation of the second row, check that you have maintained a level install, correcting if necessary. The remaining panel portion from the previous row can be used to start a new row. However, this is subject to its suitability at maintaining an irregular joint pattern between rows.

Light switches and plugs can be integrated by cutting the panels to fit behind the cover plates. Always measure twice before cutting.

Wood wall panels may be applied to a multitude of areas. For the best results, we recommend installing the panels to even surfaces. Flat walls, ceilings, cabinets, and interior doors are ideal. Surfaces should be clean and free from any loose material or debris. The area should also be structurally sound and capable of supporting the wood wall material.
