Set up your acoustic panel, or design panel, with confidence and the knowledge of interior designers.

That's the most fun part of decorating. When the feeling of the room fits perfectly, neatly, like a hand in a glove. But it's hard to say what it is that makes something not feel quite right, or not quite perfect. It just feels, like. That feeling is boring when you have ordered your acoustic panels or design panel and stand there without that feeling.

But it's nothing to let your confidence hang on to, and something we're here to help you with. Professional interior designers face the same problem, although less often thanks to knowledge. So let's present some of that knowledge — the seven design principles that create spaces as pleasing to look at as they are to be in.

1. Balance

Balance means creating visual harmony in the room through even distribution, which provides a pleasant balance in your room. There are three kinds of balance in interior design:

Symmetrical balance

The traditional type that many people mean when they say "balance". Details and placement are mirrored and appeal to the brain's search for patterns.

Asymmetrical balance

Asymmetrical balance creates dynamism through single elements, in an otherwise symmetrical design. The balance is achieved through uniform dimensions in the elements, but retains the feeling of a living room.

Radial balance

Radial balance lifts a main number in the room. Objects are placed around a main object, such as a dining table or chandelier. Even the kind of balance that creates focus, the sixth principle.

Symmetrical balance: Täck en vägg från kant till kant i rummet av akustikpanel eller designpanel.

Asymmetrical balance: Make a smaller section with our panels. Preferably with wood that contrasts with the room.

Radial balance: Frame your TV in the living room with a TV wall made of panels from Wood on Wall.akustikpanel-designpanel

2. Uniformity

The principle of unity is to create harmony among the elements used in the room. When elements are carefully curated, you feel they go together nicely, and both our acoustic panels and design panels are made in several finishes to fit in. There are two primary ways to create uniform rooms:

Colors, patterns or textures

Furniture with clear wood texture? Create unity with a wall of acoustic panels with an oiled finish. Dark details in your interior? Choose one of our darker woods, such as walnut or teak.

Distance, repetition and mirroring

The smooth style of our design panels is easy to mirror, and you almost get a little extra with our acoustic panels. Identical wooden slats at even distances.

3. Rhythm

The human brain loves logic and expected patterns. Rhythm creates repetition and contrast in a room, to make it interesting but pleasantly expected for the brain.

There are many ways to create rhythm, and a popular way is to alternate. Think like the rhythm in drums, where one element is the bass drum and one is the snare drum.

Take, for example, the electronics in your living room and our acoustic panel as two elements. By creating a rhythmic pattern between the electronics and the organic wood, you get a room in harmony. In addition, one with fantastic acoustics.

4. Focus

The focus principle emphasizes that every room needs a central element as a focal point. The other objects are there to emphasize it, so that the centerpiece remains in focus.

Our acoustic panel is a popular centerpiece in the form of an accent wall, headboard or TV wall. But of course it can also be a large piece of furniture such as a grand piano, a work of art or whatever you want to highlight in the room - where a design panel can frame it for focus.

5. Kontrast

Contrast in interior design is created by combining two or more different visual elements. Creating contrast is often done with one or more of color, shape and distance.

Color: Try a black lacquered design panel as a wall in a room that goes in white, to create both contrast and a focal point in the room.

Shape: An acoustic panel accent wall with rectangular wooden slats contrasts well with a round mirror, for example.

Distance: You can fill an otherwise empty alcove with our acoustic panels, or build a desing panel partition to create distance.

6. Scalability

Size and dimension of objects in a room should have a proportional relationship, so that they do not look out of place. Large rooms with small furniture, or vice versa, rarely look good.

Work with the golden ratio, the pleasure of scale in numbers, when you choose how much of the room should carry the acoustic panel or design panel. To best understand the golden ratio, see how it can be used together with our panels:


7. Details

When it comes to details, nothing is too small or too unimportant to pay attention to. Everything from embroidery to cabinet handles adds to your design, and takes good interior design to great interior design.

A detail that we offer together with our acoustic panels is the LED lighting that is easily attached inside the slats. A quick and easy way to elevate an accent wall or headboard into something remarkable.
