Continue to install each plank working off of your reference line. Think of it as a puzzle, but from the inside to the outside edges!
You may have to rip the boards widthwise in order to fit the top or bottom of your space.

Watch your project comes to life, plank by plank. Below are a few tips to remember when installing Stikwood:
- Lay out all of your boards on the floor to get an idea of which plank you’d like to place where.
It’s best to work one row of planks at a time. Avoid having to wedge a board in between two boards.
- Avoid gaps by placing each board closely next to one another.
As the installation progresses, be sure to properly plan for any outlets or vents that permanently live on your wall.
Don’t throw away the scraps or short boards from your cuts just yet. You may need them later to complete your design.
Take a step back after every few planks, so you don’t lose sight of the overall design.
Lastly, have fun! Ask the family to join and make a day out of it. You’ll be proud of your accomplishment!
