If you’re looking for a way to add interest to your ceilings, tongue and groove planking may be a great option to achieve your goal. Adding texture and style to your ceiling helps to draw the eye upward and can even make your rooms look larger. Tongue and groove ceilings offer an alternative to typical finishes such as popcorn ceilings or plain sheetrock.

Wainscoting on Walls


Another way to add a bit of interest to your home is by installing wainscoting on walls. Give your home that country-chic feel by installing wainscoting in various areas of your home. We’ve installed wainscoting in bathrooms, kitchens and living areas for clients that were looking to break up the monotony of basic painted walls.
