How to Install Wood Panelling

The technical view of our visualiser on each product page will show you which measurements you need between each batten. Make sure to note down these measurements when ordering your kit so that you know how far apart you should be marking the measurements when it comes to installing.

Each kit comes with a physical installation manual which provides more detail and recommendations on which order to install the panels and will include instructions for your picture shelf, dado and/or beading.

Step 1: Organise

Lay out the MDF wall panels on the floor and group them based on size.

Step 2: Stencil

Using a pencil mark where the MDF wall panels need to be positioned on the wall. You can use the measurements provided in the 'Technical View' of our visualiser for spacing.

Step 3: Stick

Apply a thin layer of adhesive on your MDF wall panels and stick them to the walls where you have previously marked them. We strongly advise you to read our installation manual for this step.

Step 4: Level

Use a spirit level to make sure the MDF wall panel pieces are aligned correctly and fix when level. Wait to dry.

Step 5: Fill

Once dry, use wall filler to fill any gaps between the strips. If you've measured well, the gaps should be small.

Step 6: Caulk

Caulk around all edges of the MDF wall panels making sure to smooth evenly with a clean slightly wet finger or application tool. Once this is done, wait until dry.

Step 7: Prep

Prep the panelling for painting by sanding the joins which you've filled with filler. This helps the paint adhere and makes the join seamless and flat.

Step 8: Prime

Apply the wood primer evenly and wait to dry. You can skip this step if you chose for us to apply the priming for you.

Step 9: Paint

Paint the panels and wall with your chosen colour. We're loving deep greens at the moment, like Farrow & Ball's Green Smoke as shown in the visualiser.

Step 10: Add your picture shelf, dado and/or beading.

Finally, you'll add any extras depending on the wall panelling kit you've purchased. Full instructions will be provided.
