Jacobean Panelling (Large or Small)

Frames of premium grade MDF applied to flat walls to recreate traditional solid panelling.

This panelling creates a look that has become almost synonymous with the term Wall Panelling. We are now seeing this type of panelling in many of the home interest magazines and period drama film sets. Ideal for feature walls or creating a cosy panelled study it is available in two sizes and can be “stacked” one above the other  to allow it to be taken to any height.  Add some bead moulding if you want a more classical style as shown here.  Don’t forget to add Framing Strips to complete your project.  Please see further down the page for dimensions and full details.

Jacobean Panelling Small open-backed Dimensions: Width 400 x  Height 1200 x Thickness 9mm:

Ideal for creating the traditional English panelled study look but perfect also for where a feature wall is called for. As with Short Victorian, the bottom rail is “missing” so that the panels can be ‘stacked’ vertically to the required height. Because they are square, the panels can also be used horizontally, making Jacobean possibly the easiest of the Open Backed designs to install. Pre-mitred beading sets are available for this design if a more ornate look is required – as can be seen in the image with the rocking horse.

Jacobean Panelling Large open-backed Dimensions: Width 600 x Height 1200 x Thickness 9mm:

A scaled-up version of the Small Jacobean with larger recessed panels and thicker rails makes the Large Jacobean ideal for bigger rooms or where a less “busy” appearance is desired.

Our Jacobean panelling is ‘one of our Open Backed’ designs, so you see your wall through the squares.  Once paint is applied to the whole area it is transformed into very convincing, seamless panelling. And over time, subsequent re-decorating will simply enhance this illusion! See below which actually shows our Victorian panels but the principle is the same. The second image shows how a customer simply lined his ageing wall with thin mdf first as this can be easier than lots of filling if your wall is in a bad state as his was.

With open-backed panelling you will probably also need a few ‘framing strips’  (third image above) to complete the panelled area at the end of a wall run.  Please see our Framing Strips page to see if these will be required for your particular project and to add them to your order. Please note that you may also wish to run framing strips as a ‘Starter Rail’ immediately above the skirting line as the Jacobean design does not incorporate a bottom rail.

Small Jacobean Requires FS4 Framing Strip.

Large Jacobean Requires FS2 Framing Strip.
