A Brief History of Wall panelling Ireland
Traditionally, wall panelling was designed for functionality rather than style. Before insulation and central heating, stone buildings were cold and damp and wooden wall panelling was designed to make a room more comfortable to live by providing insulation. Today in Ireland, wall panelling has become extremely popular for its aesthetic quality.
Why Choose wall panelling?
Wall panelling is available in a wide range of colours and dimensions and it wouldn't look out of place in virtually any room in your home. If you're not sure whether to use wood panelling for your house, you should look at the benefits it offers.
When it comes to wall panelling, installation can be quicker and less fuss then you might think. A typical hall stairs and landing can be fitted with picture frame wall panelling within one day and a bathroom fitted with tongue and groove in the same time frame.
Wall panelling requires minimal upkeep. Apart from this, they also protect the walls from everyday wear and tear, ensuring that your walls stay damage free.
As Wood is a natural insulator, installing wood panelling can offer both extra thermal and acoustic insulation. This can provide extra warmth during the winter and cooling during the summer. Apart from this, when combined with warm colours and fabrics, panelling can create an atmosphere of ambience and warmth
Irish people are known to take great pride in the appearance of our homes. This is why one of the main reasons we choose wall panelling is that it increases the aesthetic value of our home. With wall panelling, the walls look rich and elegant. Decorative wall panelling offers a clean and smooth and surface that not only looks classy and stylish but also provides a pleasant view for the onlooker.
Tongue and groove panelling provide a charming element to any room, providing a warm atmosphere that can look modern and elegant if painted. However, if you're going for a more traditional log cabin look, simply staining or varnishing will achieve a more rustic style.
Don't tell anyone but a lot of the fancy woodwork you see in old houses is nothing more than mock panelling. This is simple moulding combined to mimic ornate profiles. This first came into fashion in the 1700s when plaster walls first came into vogue. Mock panelling, or more commonly know today as picture frame panelling gives the illusion of wood panelling. At a fraction of the cost of wainscoting, picture frame wall panelling can be installed quickly and after its painted, it looks great.
Shaker style panelling is a flat and square angled style of wall panelling. This design is simplistic, clean and elegant. Because of its simplicity, this look can be interpreted as either modern or traditional depending on the surrounding decor. This looks great at any heights from a standard 90cm high to 2meters or even a grid feature wall. Paneled feature walls have really become in vogue lately and the possibilities in terms of design are endless!
We create recessed wall panelling by fitting mouldings into the recessed area to create a more traditional and classic look transforming your room into a gorgeous space in your home.
