Transform your interior space with Slatpanel® in five easy steps…

Transform your interior space with Slatpanel® in five easy steps…

Best known for our extensive selection of beautiful wood veneers, The Wood Veneer Hub has recently decided to diversify its portfolio of products to include stunning wooden wall paneling.

Whilst the two products complement each other, both have very different uses! Whereas wood veneer is supplied in a smaller sheet format, to be used in the skilled art of marquetry, or as a new surface or to face and update an item of furniture, wood paneling is designed to transform entire walls and even ceilings.

When a stylish alternative to a painted wall is required, consider wooden paneling, and in particular, Slatpanel. Suitable for use in a commercial or domestic installation, Slatpanel offers the latest in on-trend wall paneling looks, with the added benefit of acoustic properties.

By following these five easy steps, you will be ready to transform your interior.

Choose your Slatpanel finish

With five striking colourways to choose from, deciding on a finish is not always easy. Our warm, mid tones woods include ‘Walnut’, ‘Rustic Oak’ and ‘Bronze Oak’, or for a more intense, dark shade, consider ‘Rustic Grey Oak’ or ‘Smoked Oak’.

With the added benefit of a sampling service, you can see how the paneling looks in the interior, before you commit to a purchase.

Decide on the height

Whilst most people tend to choose to clad an entire wall or ceiling with wooden panels, this doesn’t have to be the case. Paneling to dado height may sound ‘old hat’ but it may actually suit your room style better!

Measuring up for Slatpanel

Once you know the area that you intend to clad, you will need to measure the height and width. Unlike other wall paneling that requires the overall area to be calculated, each Slatpanel is supplied in a fixed size of 2400 x 600mm, and is designed to be fitted vertically from floor to ceiling.

Calculating the quantity

If a wall measured 3.7m and its overall height was 2.3m, you would need to order seven lengths of Slatpanel.

Preparing the walls

Wall cladding will disguise even the most uneven surfaces. Hairline cracks do not need any preparation or necessary filling. However, any loose plaster should always be removed, then filled with a suitable filler. Once dry, as long as the surface is fairly uniform, there’s no need to sand it back to a smooth plaster finish!

By following these five steps, you’re ready to install beautiful Slatpanel wall paneling, and even in time for Christmas!
