If the color attracts you, but you want to soften the impact of the rough surface, try this product sanded and finished. The grain in the movement of the bark that is revealed with these modifications is simply stunning, and definitely unlike any other wall covering.
The white pine bark is sourced in the Appalachians with 100% grading and hand crafting at our Bark House shop in North Carolina.
What are Rough Pine Bark Wall Coverings?
Bark House® Rough Pine Wall Coverings are monolithic panels hand crafted with the bark of the White Pine (Pinus strobus) tree. The base of this tree has a rough and textured bark with a gray surface color over a rich chocolate undertone. You may also opt to have the face of this bark sanded to reveal a layered graining that looks like streaks of swirled cinnamon. Seams will be seen on each panel and between individual panels. All bark laminate panels were originally designed and created by Bark House cofounder, Marty McCurry.
How are 3D wall panels priced?
Our 3D Wall Panels are priced by the square foot. The price will depend on the type of material used and any finishes that you wish to add. Keyed edges are priced by the linear foot and finish options are priced by the square foot.
How are 3D wall panels fabricated?
Each order is custom fabricated, and every design is unique. 3D panels are secured to ½” MDF substrate, and have finish options available. Each of our 3D wall panels has unique fabrication limits, so please refer to the “Product Applications and Information” section of our product pages.
Why do the 3D veneer wall panels need to be laminated to a 1/2″ substrate?
Laminating thicker bark to only one side of a ¼” substrate can result in a warped panel over time, even if anchored to a wall.
What species is Rough Pine?
Bark House® uses the bark of the White Pine (Pinus strobus) tree to create Rough Pine Wall Coverings.
What is the texture of Rough Pine?
The surface of mature white pine bark is layered in scales that form prominent ridges broken into irregular plates. The ridges are highly textured and appear rough on the edges. The raw surface color is generally gray over a reddish brown to chocolate brown undertone. There can be displays of various lichen types on the surface. When sanded, the surface of the ridges is flattened and smooth, but the crevices remain rugged. The sanded ridges show intriguing reddish-brown concentric layers that have swirls of cinnamon color.
Will I see seams on my panel and what is the configuration?
Yes, you will as each panel is made up of multiple sheets of bark. While we show options on the Rough Pine product page, the choices of bark sheet size and design layout are endless. Our sales staff will work with you to find the best design choice for your vision.
Do I need a finish on Rough Pine?
No, but you can have a low sheen lacquer finish applied, if you wish, to enhance the bark’s features and give it an elegant glow across the surface.
How do I install Rough Pine Bark Wall Panels?

Does Bark House offer a trade or volume discount?
Bark House® Laminate Wall Coverings and Panels are custom fabricated for each individual client. We are unable to offer discounts on these products due to the level of craftsmanship that is required for every order.
Why is there an added fee for small panel sizes?
A number of factors dictate a 20% upcharge for panels less than 3ft x 3ft including project set-up fees, cutting down larger sheets of bark material, and the degree of difficulty working with a smaller scale.
Why is there an added fee for panels over 4 ft wide?
The main factor impacting the cost of wider panels is due to the difficulty in reaching across a wider field of work and the increase of internal weaving that must occur for the natural look of bark to be achieved.
We store Bark House Rough Pine Bark Laminates in a climate-controlled warehouse to prevent them from warping and wicking water.
If you need to store your Laminate Panels prior to installation we recommend that you:
- Keep your Laminate Panels in their crate lying flat to prevent warping
- Store your panels in a dry and secure location, not out in the elements, or under a tarp.
Failure to follow these guidelines can compromise your finished application
