Revamp a Room with Wall Paneling

Some rooms, or even entire homes, lack natural architectural character and charm.  We all want that photogenic perfect house that suits us perfectly, but more often than not, our buying decisions are based on budget, location, or school district.  These decisions usually lead us to one of those cheaper, mass-produced houses.  You can furnish a home all you want, it won’t make up for that mysterious oomph you’re searching for.

Our cure for a lack character?  Wall paneling.  It has an immediate impact in a room and a long lasting effect.  Like many things in life, wall paneling is making a comeback and doing better than ever.  Paneling is versatile and the perfect middle ground between a flat paint job and too-busy wallpaper.  Paneling creates an accent wall, something that your eyes will naturally draw to.  A common accent wall is the one with your fireplace or stove; use paneling to elevate the accent wall by installing it on the surrounding walls, only the accent wall, or every wall—it’s up to you!

At Deanta we wanted to develop a wall paneling that was affordable, stylish, and simple to install.  Our result is the Edwardian wall paneling.  Deanta’s Edwardian paneling uses less materials than traditional paneling.  Other styles of panels use large boards to create the effect in the middle, but Deanta paneling uses long boards to outline a shape in the middle.  This makes Edwardian paneling easier on your pocket and the environment.  On top of this, Edwardian paneling is easier to install and complements your Deanta doors and architrave perfectly.

The paneling itself comes as a set with board paneling, inside beading, and top beading.  Each piece fits together with the other making a tidy job of the installation.  What’s left is for you to get your measurements and cut the boards.

Part of paneling is the creative freedom one gets.  It’s entirely up to you whether you panel the entire wall or only a fraction of it.  Start by determining the height you want your panels to reach.  Next, measure the length of each wall you want to panel.  Multiply each length by your chosen height and add them together to get the square footage.  When getting your paneling, it is recommended that you order around 10% additional paneling to account for miscuts and waste.
