Of course, like most “vintage” trends, this one has taken on a couple of modern twists:
1. The colors tend to be lighter – unlike the deep browns with black oak patterns of the past, lighter tints are leading the trends. Whether it’s a pale or honey toned wood, or an all white look, the current wood paneling trends are bright and monochromatic.
2. It comes in different shapes and colors! Modern takes go beyond the tongue and groove strip to include rectangle wood panels, unique cuts and shapes, and even bright colors.
