The Short Victorian wall panelling differs from Edwardian and Regency, in that it can be stacked vertically, as well as horizontally, thus enabling entire walls to be covered – from dado height, to picture rail height, even to cornice or ceiling.
(Short open-backed Victorian Panelling Dimensions: Width 600 x Height 800 x Thickness 9mm).
(Tall open-backed Victorian Panelling Dimensions: Width 600 x Height 1200 x Thickness 9mm).
Our Victorian panelling is ‘Open Backed’ panelling, which literally has perforations in the shape of squares to create the panelled look, with your own wall appearing in the spaces – see images below to get the idea. Once paint is applied to the whole area it is transformed into perfect, seamless panelling.
The images below illustrate how open-backed panelling works!
With open-backed panelling you may also need ‘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 if you are using SHORT Victorian you may also wish to run framing strips as a ‘Starter Rail’ immediately above the skirting line as this design does not incorporate a bottom rail.
Short Victorian Requires FS1/FS2 Framing Strips.
Tall Victorian Requires FS2 Framing Strips.
