Wood panel wallpaper that's just like the real thing!

If you’re interested in interiors in any way, you’re sure to have noticed the obsession for wood panel feature walls!

It’s not hard to see why. Wood panelled walls can certainly transform a room.

There are various options to achieve this look. There are many companies now selling slat-wall panels which can offer an instant makeover. Or real wood panelling can be fitted by a professional which may look fabulous, but it can be expensive and requires a lot of work. It’s also a long-term commitment. If you change your mind down the line, will it be a big job to put the walls right again?

Some choose to go down the DIY route. You just need to look at Pinterest to see hundreds of “How to do wood panelling” videos. It seems as if the world has gone MDF mad! But what if you’re not a practical person?  

There is another option.

If you want to achieve the look and feel of wood panelled wall, do it the easy way with a trompe l'oeil wood-effect wallpaper. Thanks to high-definition digital printing techniques and the latest 3D effects, you can achieve the illusion of wood panels instantly.

There are lots of wood-effect wallpaper designs available, in a range of different colours and styles. Whether you want to re-create an atmospheric panelled library, a rustic lodge or a coastal home, there’s a wallpaper to match.
