Georgian Panelling, a classic tongue and groove style, is a perfect design for use in bathrooms, but also wherever it is desirable to give the impression of higher ceilings. Unlike softwood matchboarding, there is virtually zero movement caused by central heating and humidity… so you won’t be having to forever re-decorate! You can choose between the ‘Standard Joint’ which has grooves 15cm apart and the ‘Wide Joint’ which has them at 20cm apart (price and sheet size is the same for both). This close up of our Bead detail in the third image below shows how we faithfully replicate traditional boarding:
Our Georgian wall panelling looks equally stunning in traditional and contemporary settings. There is also the option to fit panelling to studwork which not only conceals pipework but can also be designed to create a useful shelf. Also ideal on external walls of older properties as it allows insulation to be used behind the panelling.
On all sheet sizes the width of the bead/groove detail is 10mm but as the Full Size is an imperial size sheet the “planks” between the grooves are slightly wider (193.3mm rather than 190mm on Wide joint and 142.5mm rather than 140mm on Standard Joint).
All of our panels are made using Medite’s Moisture Resistant MDF. This is a premium quality version of standard MDF developed specifically for areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. It also has a superior surface which makes it easier to paint as well as providing a better paint finish. In smaller bathrooms we would recommend our Georgian panelling since it does not have any ledges upon which water could sit. We would not recommend the use of any MDF based panelling within a shower cubicle itself and all walls must be free from damp. Newly plastered walls must be fully dry before installation.
