When it comes time to look at material selections for your home’s interior, you’ll likely be comparing traditional drywall to more attractive choices like tongue and groove. However, the higher price tag on the natural, wood alternative might give you pause. But the initial cost is only half the picture. The payoff occurs in the long run. Tongue and groove requires a larger outlay initially, but adding wood to your interior increases your home’s value.
Tongue and groove is cost-effective
- Adds value to your home
- Budget-friendly, as you can add as much as you like
- Easier and quicker to install, modify and repair
It helps to remember it doesn’t have to be an all or nothing decision. Because even a little can make a big impact in style. Popular choices include ceilings, floors, and/or walls, in kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms, you name it!
But it also looks fantastic as an accent anywhere in your home. So add a little flair to your hallway or foyer. Add a backsplash in your kitchen. Add wainscotting charm and style on the lower third of walls. A single wooden accent wall in any room adds visual interest and texture to an otherwise plain room. Waterproof tongue and groove in the bathroom gives it a warm and comfortable feeling. It’s a versatile option for any number of interior applications. The flexibility it lends to your design choices makes it suitable for all sorts of budgets, large or small.
Tongue and groove is a cost-effective option to drywall because of the value it adds to your home. Plus it’s easier and quicker to install, modify (for outlets, etc.) and repair. No mudding, sanding, dusting, taping, or painting required. Just waterproofing in humid areas like the kitchen and bath. You always have the option to paint or stain as you like, it’s up to you.
