Wall panelling for a bedroom

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

A client got in touch recently to ask about me coming to Install some wall panelling behind their bed, they felt that the room needed something as a feature so provided me with a picture of some wainscoting that they had seen and asked if I could replicate it for them.

Via email we discussed their carpentry needs and I explained the standard heights and depths for the panelling I also provided them with drawings of the finished project.

There were 2 double sockets to incorporate into the panelling so when deciding spacing these were a factor.

On the day of the Installation all of the materials were prepared and ready and all was on site by 8am the only trip out I had to make was because I ran out of wood glue.

Fixing to dry wall with counter battens I set out the panelling so no joins were visible and that we could accommodate the 2 double sockets.

Before Installation I asked the client if they would like different kinds of wood finish for the panelling I chose Poplar ( tulipwood ) and normal pine softwood, they went with pine softwood which i provided with a clean finish and treated all knots ready for painting.

The top of the panelling has a slight ledge with a groove cut into it so pictures can stand on top.

This project took most of the day and in the end I was very pleased with the outcome and more importantly so was the client.
