Bedroom wall panelling is a great way to update your bedroom, without overwhelming or dramatically changing the space. Bedroom wall panels will add depth, character and a general different dimension to your room. Traditionally used to add insulation to stone walls, today panelling is predominantly decorative, and becoming increasingly popular in interiors.
If you’re ready to elevate your bedroom decor, here are ideas and inspiration for bedroom wall panelling, to suit a variety of rooms and styles…
1. Try Classic Squares
When choosing what sort of wall panelling to introduce to your bedroom, it can be tricky to know which style to settle on. Today there are all sorts of designs that you can create with panelling, but why not keep the look classic and simple? A symmetrical panelling style is always pleasing to the eye and will suit the majority of bedrooms in both modern and traditional properties.
Top tip: If you want to make the look more modern, try using wider panelling strips to create a chunky looking panelled wall.
2. Opt for a Panelled Headboard
You don’t have to panel your entire room to make an impact, instead consider panelling just behind your bed, to create the look of a headboard. Panel the bottom half of the wall, and paint your panelling in a bold colour, leaving the top of the wall white, to make your panelled headboard the statement piece. Or opt for a vertical floor to ceiling headboard, panelling to the width of your bed, or for an even bigger statement, panel behind your bedside tables too.

3. Try Simple Vertical Panels
If you have a small space, consider wide set vertical panels to keep the look simple and enhance the space, rather than make it feel crowded and smaller. Simply use MDF wall panel strips from floor to ceiling, and leave around 30 cm between each strip. These can be easily glued to the wall and are a great choice if you are just getting started with wall panelling. Another great alternative style is tongue and groove panelling, which is traditionally seen in log cabins and country retreats. Add a modern twist to this look by painting it white, for a fresh finish with lots of texture.
Panelling is a fantastic way to transform your space, without having to spend a huge amount. MDF wall panels are a great budget friendly option, and will look just as good as traditional wood panelling.
