What Houzz contributors are saying:
Aesthetics and acousticsInterior ceilings and walls lined with timber battens have a textured and rhythmic effect, which adds detail and warmth to a space. In this application, timber battens are spaced close together so as to conceal the framework or backing of interior walls or ceilings. Timber battens also function as acoustic panels, as wood has a stronger sound-absorbing capacity than most structural materials, due to its natural composition. A scrim backing can enhance absorption even further.
