All about Wall Panelling

Elevate your home and create a feature with the latest interior trend, wall panelling.

With so many finishes and styles on offer, it’s a contemporary, affordable, and easy solution for a style refresh. Here at Colourcube Interiors, we often include wall panelling in our projects to add instant personality, colour, pattern, and texture into any room.

Whilst traditional timber panels still have their place, a greater range of materials are now on the market. Think MDF which can be primed and ready to go perfect for the DIY project and easy installation. There are even moisture resistant options so you can add this look into your bathroom or laundry.

Check out some of our favourite wall panelling styles:

1. Modern Silhouette

A new concept to wall panelling, the silhouette range offers rounded, scalloped styles either convex or concave plus a fresh take on the classic vertical panels. These styles give play to organic shapes and shadows.

2. Timber Panels

Architectural timber finishes will be sure to introduce warmth and texture into your home. Choose a premium product in natural timber or a timber look finish as a more affordable option. Laid vertical or horizontal there are many profiles on the market.

3. VJ Panelling

VJ (vertical joint) panelling is very on trend now. Use it full height or half height, on the ceiling, around built-in cabinetry – it can be used all over. You’ll find it featured in many old Queenslanders along with new builds.

5. Board and Batten Style

Popular in Hamptons and modern farmhouse homes, this can be a relatively easy DIY style simply using a pine or MDF panels to create vertical and horizontal patterns across the wall. It produces clean lines and a shaker style look.
