10 Sustainable Interior Design Tips: Wooden Ceilings, Wall Panels, and More

Beauty, versatility, and sustainability make wood the perfect choice for many different kinds of projects, fitting seamlessly into schools, auditoriums, financial institutions, business centers, and many other places. Although ceilings and walls aren’t always the first feature considered in a design project, they offer two huge opportunities for you to define your space.


If you’re looking to take your project to the next level with a stunning design, custom wood ceiling and wall systems may be exactly what you need. With so many different wood products available from Rulon International, we make it possible for you to customize the products you need to successfully fulfill your vision.


Get inspired with the ideas below!


1. Add extra dimension.

Cubes can be added into your design as either a wall or ceiling feature — the perfect addition to a space that seeks to maintain a sleek, clean appearance.
