tongue and groove for walls and ceiling. (patterns)


Should the walls be run at an angle? Would this look funny? or is horizontal best?

Go for a pattern or angle - why not! No reason not to.

Depends what you want it to look like. Do whatever you want. Here's a couple of pics of horizontal and angled.

Those pics look awesome - I like untraditional . . . I love the diagonal, there.
