As we come across various scenarios’ as interior designers, we find a lot of products available to us to exhibit, to explore and to enhance our interior designing. But some of the ways are literally ancient and are still one can say “old is gold”. One of them is usage of wooden paneling for interior designing.
This wooden panelling in case of residential interiors should be done only on one wall of the room. Rest of the walls should be simple paint, so as the entire focus goes on to the panelling. Then these panellings can have P.V.C. wooden look-alikes on surface, laminates, veneers or even mirrors or lacquered glass on top to break the monotony of simple wall.
How to do Wooden Panelling
Although the most simple way of doing wooden panelling is to have a 9mm or 12mm ply nailed to a wall. On top of that you can paste your veneer or P.V.C panel or laminate of your choice. Further you can have smaller blocks of these materials with grooves in between to give an enhanced effect. The veneers can be polished to desired levels, plus they can also have mouldings or cornices at certain places to give it a break. In case you go for black polish, you can also have a silver laminate strip at various places. Besides this, MDF boards are available, with carving or jali work which can be pasted to the base ply to give absolutely stupendous effect. You can paint the base black and the above jali in golden. Now, you get the jazzy effect. The available boards of some of the reputed brands come in variety of colours and these colours are throughout the material. You don’t need to paint it further, just work on it and stick it and there you are ready.
Then, at certain times you can have lower bottom of the wall that is 3’0” of paneling in a dark shade, making the space look much bigger. This low height bottom paneling can have a multipurpose advantage. Besides making the space more aesthetically appealing it can also make it look big and it does keep it clean also. Because the lower 3’0” of the wall is the portion that gets dirty at the earliest. This way our dark panel takes on the dirty part and the above painted surface remains clean as always. These low height panellings run all along the room along with the skirting. This paneling should preferable have horizontal strips of veneers to give width effect to the room.
Then comes the windows and doors. Try to have paneling on the inside of the chowkhats left over space of the wall. This way you have a feel of wider chowkhats plus it protects the sides of the walls. To close this panelling you can have moulding at the end.
Then one can have small features made out of paneling with provisions for wall hanging on them.
Thus you can see, that in interior design of your living room or living spaces the possibilities of using panelling is innumerable and equally impressive are the results.
