Interest in wood as a finishing material has not been declining for many decades due to its natural and aesthetic appearance. Upholstery with vertical slats of one wall of the house or staircase creates an invoice composition, against which the green corner in the room looks advantageous.

Wooden slats have high strength. Their popularity is explained by availability and low cost. In addition, their processing and installation do not require special training, and even a person without special training will be able to perform such work.

External walls made of wooden planks provide good soundproofing to the room, and on hot days they keep freshness and coolness in the house. Since a wooden crate or a metal frame is needed to fix the rails, these structures have been successfully used to equip niches and shelves. This gives the interior a special touch and originality.

Vertical slats in the design of the walls will last for many years and do not require special care. Wooden planks – a natural and environmentally friendly material that does not cause allergies, therefore, can be used in any room. In the bedrooms and children’s rooms, wooden planks not only decorate the interior but also provide a safe and warm aura in the rooms.

A variety of shades and textural features of wooden battens allow you to create color compositions by the design line. Against the background of the light palette of the ceiling and other walls, the wooden upholstery looks like a warm and natural panel.

Wood is a combustible material that is highly hygroscopic and susceptible to decay, mold and fungi. Therefore, when using vertical slats in the design of the house, it will be necessary to process wooden planks with special impregnating solutions, varnishes and paints.
