Opt for MDF Wall Panels
Fully Prep your Walls
Choose Ready Primed Panels
MDF panels need to be primed before they can be painted. If you choose unprimed panels, you will need to prime these either before you install them, or once they are on your walls. This can often be a lengthy process, so consider buying panels that come ready primed. We offer a free priming service with all of our panelling kits, and you can add on priming when buying individual strips too.
Use a Panelling Kit
One of the most complex stages of creating panelled walls is certainly working out all of the measurements, and then cutting panels to size to fit. Take this step out, by using our panelling kit creator. Simply put in the measurements of the wall that you want to panel, and we will do the rest for you. You’ll get an instant quote online, and will receive your kit, all cut to size and ready to install, plus as mentioned above, you can even receive your panels ready primed at no extra cost.
To make things as straightforward as possible, consider buying a wall panelling kit. This will provide all of the panels that you need to create your panelled wall, all cut to size and ready to be installed. They can then simply be glued into place and painted to create your finished look.

Use Moisture Resistant MDF in Bathrooms and Kitchens
Save yourself a headache in the long run and always opt for moisture resistant MDF panels in any room where moisture levels are higher than usual. Using normal MDF in bathrooms and kitchens will result in warping over time, which will mean you will have to replace your panelling. By choosing MR MDF panels you can ensure that your panelling will look great for years to come, despite higher humidity levels.
While DIY wall panelling might look complex, if you follow these five tips, you can create great looking panelling with ease.
