Decorating with wooden wedges is a new trend that we follow in our interiors. It brings graphics and modernity. How to decorate with wooden slats? We give you examples and explain how to do it.
What is a wooden peg and how to install it?
It is a piece of wood with a rectangular or square cross-section that can easily be found in large DIY stores at a very competitive price. It can be used in decoration in a variety of ways, even if its primary function is to support shelves, for example. For example, we will put it together in the classic way by screwing it together (video). But you can also choose to stick it with double-sided tape for something more reversible. It is preferable to choose cleats made of solid laminated wood so that they are straight and without knots and to achieve a perfect result.
How to use a wooden cleat in your decoration?
There are many ways to use a wooden bed in its decoration, most often it is placed on the wall evenly distributing it, it is especially practical for dressing partitions of atypical shapes, here are some photos for you to inspire your own project

Another way to decorate with wooden slats: use them in a black version for the style of a luxury hotel suite
You rent, you have two left hands, you don’t have the budget for such a job, you want a quick solution, here are two ways you can follow to arrange wooden cleats without any problems:
1) Trompe-l’oeil wallpaper
A quick, economical solution (although some wallpapers are relatively expensive) and quickly undone if you get tired of this type of decoration. There are many brands that offer such wallpapers, some even made to order. The cost price varies from €20 for a roll of basic, but quite satisfactory wallpaper, to several hundred euros for custom-made. The effect is quite stunning, and you often have to get very close and touch it to realize that you are not in front of a real wooden cleat. Some manufacturers offer it in a self-adhesive version, which further reduces the amount of work. It can be found in different colors, clear with dark seals or clear seals to choose from depending on the supplier.
2) Acoustic panel ready for installation
It is an expensive solution, but very easy to implement. But it will be quite reserved for the owners because for a wall 2.60 m wide and 2.50 m high it will cost you about €1000, which is a good budget. However, if the adjacent wall of your apartment or house is poorly sound-insulated from the neighbor’s accommodation, the advantage of this solution is the reduction of noise during decoration. It can also be considered on the wall between the parents’ and the children’s room, on all the walls of the room where music is played, for example. Its application is limited only by your imagination.
Are you tempted to decorate wooden cleats at home? I confess my weakness for the very original and timeless black version that will not be seen everywhere. Which is your favorite version? Natural with black seal? Natural with a white seal? Light wood like oak or darker? Black version? Decide to personalize your house or apartment with style!
