How to panel a wall in 3 simple steps?

  1. Measure Up

  2. Cut panels to size

  3. Install on to walls & ceilings

Measure up
  • Arguably the most important job. Measure your wall height and make sure it is shorter than the length/height of the panel you wish to install; this will be the case for most of our panels as they are designs to run from floor to ceiling.

  • Measure your wall width in cm so in the example above 260cm, then divide that by the width of each panel in cm for example 25cm which in the example above gives 10.4, so you would need 11 panels. Repeat the process for each wall, alternatively simply add up the width of all your walls and then divide by the panel width.

Cut the panels to size
The beauty of these products is they are very low maintenance in terms of installation. All materials basic tools such as a hacksaw, circular saw or even a Stanley knife can complete the job. If using a Stanley knife, simply score across the width of the panel and then it should break off in a straight line.

Installation onto Walls & Ceilings
Panels can easily be installed onto plasterboard, existing tiles or wooden framework. For plasterboard and wooden framework screws or staples will be fine, but for tiles, you will need to use solvent free adhesive.

Installing onto Ceilings
The method above also applies to ceilings, if you are fitting spotlights, bear in mind the position of the studs and leave room for any wiring or fittings. You can use hold cutters for light fittings or wires.

Using Screws or Staples
To attach using screws you screw through the lip of the panel and when your next panels slots into place, it will cover the screws. You can screw straight onto plasterboard as well as a timber framework.
