Wood plank flooring on wall
I am about to remodel a living room, and I'd like to cover one wall in finished bamboo plank flooring. The other three walls will be drywalled. I've never done this before, so I'm curious to hear from anyone with experience. I'm not sure if I can safely go with an inexpensive, solid bamboo flooring product directly on the studs, or if I'll need to cover the wall in plywood first . I know there are products like this made for use as wall covering, but I'm not familiar with them. If there is a product someone recommends other than flooring for this sort of application, please let me know. Also, this wall will have a TV mounted to it, with in wall speakers installed. I need to keep the thickness of the wall about the same as it is now with 1/2" drywall, because there's an opening that leads to a hallway on one end of the wall. If the wall is any thicker, it will require new woodwork for the opening (remove casing and new jambs), which I'd rather avoid if I can. I realize this post is somewhat vague, but I'm really just looking for advice and/or things to look out for when doing this sort of thing.
