Our couriers maximum panel length is 1800mm. If your wall is longer than this and you enter dimensions larger than 1800mm, we will provide you with multiple pieces to make up the required length. 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 MR MDF, 9mm MR MDF and 12mm MR MDF. These are all perfect for use in bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and other high-humidity areas. 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.

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
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. We strongly advise you 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 until 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: Enjoy!
Finally, you're free to tidy up and furnish your newly decorated room!

Wall Panelling Key Features
Wood wall panelling is made easy with the use of our Moisture Resistant MDF. MDF is a popular and adaptable material that is made up of small strands of mixed hard and softwoods, combined with resins and wax to produce a hard-wearing but lightweight panel.
Due to the small strands that construct the sheet, both our Standard Grade and Moisture Resistant MDF sheets are ideal for completing wood wall panelling as the wood panels are light to install and fit.
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.
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.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Moisture-Resistant MDF?
With a slight green tint, moisture-resistant MDF, also known as MR MDF, contains a moisture-repellent resin that provides increased resistance to humidity. As a result of this, our MR MDF is ideal for use in high humidity areas or areas of high moisture.
Is all MDF moisture-resistant?
Not all MDF is moisture-resistant. MDF is a porous material, and moisture-resistant sheets prevent the MDF sheets from warping or being affected by moisture.
My MDF is not the colour I was expecting, have I been supplied with the incorrect items?
Our Moisture Resistant MDF could be a variety of colours depending on supply, including shades of green or brown, possibly sandwiched in layers.
Can I waterproof these MDF panels even more?
Moisture-resistant MDF sheets are already resistant to moist areas and humidity, however, you can improve their hydrophobia by coating them in an appropriate waterproof primer or paint.
How do you measure for Wall Panelling?
All you need to do is simply measure out the area that you would like to panel with a tape measure and input your measurements into our site along with your column/row preferences. Our site will work out the rest for you!
What comes in the Wall Panelling Kit?
Our wall panelling kits for bathrooms contain made-to-measure Moisture Resistant MDF Battens to create the shaker effect on your walls as well as a short instructional leaflet for installing them. We can supply the additional materials you will need for installation like adhesive, dust sheets, primer and filler. These can be added to your cart in the kit configuration tool on the Wall Panelling page, or found on the accessories page. Backing boards for unfinished walls are not included.
How do you put up Wall Panelling?
Wall panelling can easily be installed using adhesive, or screws. We would also recommend making sure you use a spirit level when installing to make sure that the pieces are flat. In addition, we have an installation guide for our MDF Wall Panelling.
Does your MDF come primed?
Our Moisture Resistant MDF comes unprimed, but you can select for us to prime the wood for you. This will save you the time and effort of doing it yourself, so once your panelling arrives, it’s ready to paint!
Can I paint on MDF?
Often chosen for its inexpensive cost to create furniture, MDF can be painted to add some character or personality to any piece. We have written a guide to assist you in painting your MDF.
