Custom Height Shaker Wall Panelling

Half-height wall panelling - also known as Wainscoting is a traditional Wall Panelling technique which dates back centuries. Half-height panelling is popular in hallways to make the hallway appear longer than it is. Many of our customer's panel the lower half of their bathroom walls to add character, for this we recommend our Custom Height Bathroom Panelling which includes moisture-resistant MDF

There are plenty of reasons to go for a half-height wall panelling option. 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. If you have a dado rail, you can decide to fit it above or below it to break up the room.

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.

Half-height wall panelling is also an excellent way to guard your walls. You can use it as an alternative to skirting boards and prevent damage to the walls where it is likely to get dented or scuffed.

Our full and custom height shaker wall panelling is available in varying thicknesses of 6mm MDF, 9mm MDF and 12mm MDF allowing for more depth and a bolder, more dramatic look. 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.

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.
