7 Inspiring Interior & Exterior Wood Accents Using Belco XT-T&G

When it comes to adding warmth, charm, and a touch of natural beauty to your interior and exterior spaces, incorporating wood accents can make a significant difference. Belco Forest Products offers an exceptional option for achieving this with their Belco XT-T&G (Tongue and Groove) wood product. With a smooth face, edge vees on all four edges, a textured ungraded back, and the added benefit of being preservative-treated, Belco XT-T&G opens up a world of design possibilities. Here are five ways to utilize Belco XT-T&G to enhance both your interior and exterior spaces.

1. Interior and Exterior Wood Accent Walls

Create a stunning focal point in any room by using Belco XT-T&G to construct an accent wall. Whether you prefer a rustic or modern look, the warm tones and natural beauty of this preservative-treated wood will add depth and texture to your space. Consider using Belco XT-T&G on a single wall in your living room, bedroom, or dining area to transform the ambiance and make a bold design statement.

2. Ceilings

Take your interior design to new heights by installing Belco XT-T&G on your ceilings. This application adds an element of warmth and sophistication to any room. Whether you choose to cover the entire ceiling or create a coffered effect by using the Belco XT-T&G in a grid pattern, the result will be a visually appealing and inviting space.

3. Wainscoting

Enhance the elegance and charm of your interior spaces by incorporating Belco XT-T&G as wainscoting. Install it on the lower half of your walls, combining it with complementary paint or wallpaper above. The textured back of the Belco XT-T&G adds a unique visual appeal, while the preservative treatment ensures long-lasting beauty and durability.
