Using Flooring as a Wall Accent

One of the recent trends in a home is using materials in a unique way. Using flooring on a vertical surface is no exception to this rule. Real wood or laminate flooring planks are a great choice to spruce up a wall, whether you want to cover it entirely or just accent it, like in the image below.

For putting flooring planks on your wall, it can be approached several ways. Before you even attach them to the walls, be aware you'll need to do proper planning first. For example, know the area you'd like to cover. Inspect the wall(s) to ensure they are level and clean. Measure where you'd want the planks to go; even if it is for a small size.
