The decorative panels on walls are called panel mouldings and can typically be made in a range of materials. Traditionally, these were made in plaster and we are still making them with the same historic methods by hand in our workshop. They can be very decorative or also very plain to suit any style of room.
Panel mouldings FAQs
What are decorative panels on walls called?
How do you attach decorative wall panels to a wall?
How you fix your decorative wall panels is dependant on the size and weight of them. If they are small (which most normal househould panels are) they can simply be stuck onto the wall with a strong adhesive. On the other hand, if they are quite heavy / on the larger side then it is worth noting that all our panel mouldings come with timber fixings inside the products, hand placed. These can be countersunk into and secured to the wall with long enough screws in order to hold the panel in place.
When is it best to fit plaster wall panels?
It is best to fix any plaster mouldings when the room has been freshly skimmed in a new build and has dried out. In a property where it hasn’t been re-plastered or skimmed, we can come in at any point of the renovation and fix fibrous plasterwork.
Is wall panelling making a comeback?
Wall panelling has been around for many years and to our knowledge never left. Although, today is does seem much more popular in non traditional or heritage homes.
Does panelling work in a small room?
Wall panelling works in any room, given the correct design and volume.
Should panelling be lighter or darker?
This comes down purely to personal preference. We complete many projects with examples of both aspects. We can say that more than likely though, panels are painted a lighter colour than their background, or the same.
What’s the difference between Paneling & Wainscoting?
Wainscoting is one of many types of wall panelling. Wall panelling in the most recent years is becoming very experimental and we are completing very unique and bespoke projects using them.
