DIY Custom Height Shaker Wall Panelling Details

It's never been easier to order and install custom height shaker wall panelling. No need for pesky calculators and complicated diagrams, simply enter your dimensions and preferred number of columns and rows and all the pieces are cut exactly to size and whether youe like iike it pre- primed. It will then be delivered straight to your door, all you have to do is stick it on the wall! We can even provide a popular picture shelf to display your home decor.

Please note that if you have chosen the pre-priming option and have a picture shelf wainscot, the front-facing edge of the triangular support may not be primed. This is because the supports are cut from a pre-primed board, and the primer may have come off during the cutting process. However, the supports are still suitable for painting.

Read our guide on how to install your wall panelling.

Our custom height shaker wall panelling allows you to create Wainscoting Panelling which is a traditional Wall Panelling technique dating back centuries.

By panelling just the lower half of your walls, you can leave room for shelving, lighting or painting on your upper walls. A good way to decide where you would like to fit your half-height panelling is to consider what furniture and home decor are already in the room, and where your panelling would look best around it.

Making use of our cut to size MDF, DIY wainscoting shaker wall panelling has now become a very cost-effective way to breathe new life into your home. It is the perfect feature to add character to any space and is particularly popular in hallways, bedrooms and living rooms. Accentuating a wall with this kit can help define a room by lifting it with elegance and texture whilst aiding any interior design themes or styles. There are plenty of personalisation possibilities to add flair to the home with multiple designs and colours.

Wainscoting also gives you the option of having a two-tone colour palette. People are getting bolder with their wall colours now, but it might seem overwhelming to paint an entire wall green. With Wall Panelling at half height on the wall, you can still apply bold colour to your room without it being too overpowering.

Custom height wall panelling is also an excellent way to guard your walls, preventing damage to the walls where it is likely to get dented or scuffed by furniture knocking into it.

To complete your DIY wall panelling, all you will need is our easy self-install DIY wall panels and any form of fixings, whether it be nails or adhesive. We provide your wall panelling exactly to your specifications and measurements so there is no need for you to have to cut anything at home and no wastage. We can also professionally prime the pieces, so all you have to do is stick them to the wall and paint them. A simple splash of colour on the panelling can elevate the room and bring both light and texture to your room!

Our maximum panel length for our courier is 1800mm. If your wall is longer than this and therefore you enter dimensions larger than 1800mm, we will provide you with multiple pieces to make up the total length required. We will make sure that the panels are cut to equal sizes so that they can be joined in the middle.

Our wall panelling is available in 6mm MDF, 9mm MDF and 12mm MDF. These are all perfect for use in bedrooms, kitchens and hallways. You can also choose the width of your MDF battens to be 50mm, 80mm, 100mm or 120mm. 100mm is our most commonly bought width and is therefore set to this at default.

Looking for an easy-to-paint option? The premium MDF wall panel strips we offer can be primed so they can be painted as soon as they arrive, and they are made of high-density premium MDF, which means less preparation and painting.

Add a picture shelf as your wainscot cap

Our customisable MDF shelf is the perfect addition to our custom height wall panelling kit. The picture shelf is made from high-quality 18mm MDF material so it is not only durable but also versatile enough to complement any home decor.

Our Picture Shelf is cut to size so that it is the same length as your wall panelling kit. Once installed, you will be creating a seamless and cohesive look for your wall space. The flat surface of the shelf provides ample space to display your favourite decorative items and family photos. Prefer a Dado Rail for a more traditional look? No problem, we also offer shaker wall panelling with a dado rail.

Our MDF shelf is easy to install, and you don’t even need to drill into your walls! The shelf can be attached securely to the wall panelling kit with the included adhesive. Our picture shelves come with the exact number of support blocks and glue required, as well as an easy-to-follow installation manual. When opting for your wall panelling kit to come primed, we will also prime both sides of the shelf so that it can easily be painted upon delivery to your door.

We offer our picture shelving in both 80mm and 120mm in depth, so you can decide between the options as to how far you would like your shelving to come out from the wall.

Picture shelves are the perfect storage solution to display your cherished memories as well as enhance your space with custom-height wall panelling. Upgrade your wall panelling kit with our customizable MDF shelf today and transform your living space into a stylish and functional haven.

Please note, the picture shelf is intended for decorative purposes only.

Installing Your Wall Panelling

After ordering your wood wall panelling comes the important part. Installation. Don't worry - we include a wall panelling manual within your kit which can help you with installation.

Below is also a step-by-step guide to assist you to install your new and outstanding wall panelling.

What You Will Need

Half installed unpainted wall panelling

How to Install Wood Panelling

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

Our Wall Panelling Kit includes a physical Installation Manual which provides more detail and recommendations on which order to install the panels in.

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 to the walls where you have previously marked them.

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: Add your picture shelf

If you've added a picture shelf to your order it's time to install it. Detailed instructions are provided with your kit.

Step 6: Fill

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

Step 7: 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 8: 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 9: 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 10: Paint

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

Wall Panelling Key Features

Versatile

Wood wall panelling is made easy with the use of our Standard MDF sheets, which are a popular and adaptable material made up of small strands of mixed hard and softwoods, combined with resins and wax to produce a hard-wearing but lightweight panel.

Lightweight

Due to the small strands that construct the sheet, our Standard Grade MDF sheets are ideal for completing wood wall panelling as the wood panels are light to install and fit.

Malleable

Our MDF wall panels take well to most adhesives and paints. As such MDF wall panels allow for fantastic possibilities for adding colour and creativity. For more wall panelling ideas for how MDF can be best-used check our guide Choosing the Right MDF.

Inexpensive

Far cheaper than solid wood of the same size, MDF wall panels are a cheaper material to work with and are ideal for completing wood wall panelling due to their ability to be produced and shipped cheaply and quickly for fast installation.

Customisable

Our sheet takes well to most adhesives and paints, so are great for customising for different projects including bedroom wall panels, decorative wall panels, hallway panelling, wood wall cladding and bathroom wall panels. Additionally, wood wall panelling is easy to fabricate and fix with screws, nails or glues. Further, we can provide MDF wall panels exactly to your specifications and measurements, and can include options for customisations such as Cut-Outs for plug sockets, or fixtures on the wall should you require them.

I initially thought quite pricey, but the pre-measured pre-cut benefits are huge really. Didn't realise primer not on the edges, but not necessary for a great painted finish. I'd recommend the extra for primed. Several boards broken on 1st delivery. All replaced quickly and without hassle. All in I'd recommend. I'm not a DIYer but it was quick and easy after the number crunch.

I’m an ambitious beginner at DIY and this went up no problem at all! I did measure incorrectly so I would advise to measure, re measure and measure again, both along the top and the bottom. I have already recommended this company to others, excellent service and product.
