Once you’ve decided which style you want to create, you’ll need to workout whether you’re going to panel one wall or every wall. Perhaps you only want to install wall panelling in a singular spot to create a feature wall or maybe you’re looking to transform the entire room.

We always recommend buying slightly more than you need to be on the safe side.
