Wall Panelling


Hi,

I'm looking to semi panel my bathroom. The overall look I'm going for is Regency waist high (well if you're 5,4")painted waterproof wood panelling.

I live in an old English Cottage with a bathroom wall prone to damp, so don't know how I achieve this with wood on a budget.

I'm aware you can buy Regency/Georgian sheets of panelling in both wood and wood effect, alas the quality ones come at a price and the other looks cheap, which is exactly what i'm trying to avoid.

I'm told it's possible to get the look doing it myself but thats where the plan faulters; I havent got a clue how too??

Wall Panelling


Definately no such thing as waterproof paneling. There's nothing wrong with using paneling in a bathroom, but its use should be limited to the walls of the room that do not get wet...Never around tubs or showers.

The best way to get a durable installation and the best appearance is to install individual pieces of beaded wainscot. You'd prime both faces and edges prior to installation. Once installed, the wainscot is capped with a moulded profile piece similar to a chair rail.

You can buy paneling and install it, but in my opinion it will look like paneling and will do very little for the value of your home.

Question

Wall Panelling


Thanks for taking the trouble to reply. i was not planning on installation around a bath/shower, my problem is i have a porous exterior stone wall which i want to clad.

I'm quite sure you're right about the difficulties in getting the overall look right, forgive me, but was you saying the former would be a convincing solution?
