How it all started..
About 25 years ago I wanted to put traditional style 'tongue and groove' panelling in the bathroom of my Cotswold house. I did not want to use solid wood, as today’s softwoods invariably shrink leaving unsightly gaps, but I was unable to find an MDF sheet version that had realistic looking 'joints' which would truly mimic traditional 'butt and bead' detailing. So I set about designing my own and selling it through my furniture company Scumble Goosie. I called it our Georgian style - just a name really as you can use any of our designs in any age house - choose whichever looks most suitable!
We insisted on using only the best quality Moisture Resistant MDF and by selling it in manageable sheet sizes, that could be couriered with ease, it soon became a best seller! Realising that there has been a resurgence of interest in wall panelling we decided to expand the range to include alternative designs and The English Panelling Company was thus born.
The range has grown over the years and now comprises 5 styles in a number of size options. We have added dado and picture rails that are rebated to suit the thickness of the board we use making the job of finishing off the top of the panels even easier. If a more classical look is required our beading is available in pre-mitred sets to apply to the recessed panel type designs.
We hope our website answers most of the questions you may have but please don't hesitate if you'd prefer to give us a call and we can talk through the options with you to help you make your choice and assist with estimating the number of panels you need.
We look forward to hearing from you!
